COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This version of the Itís Alive has the mango to give it that sweet fruity tropical fruit taste, while the Chardonnay barrel aging gives it a vineous character. Brett gives the tartness. Complex beer Ė it is very much alive!

VertBaconStrips (2163) - Asshat, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 8, 2013
How can one not love the Alive line? Itís awesome. Smeelyy- sweet mango fruit meat, honeysuckle, lemonade, wine things - yummo more when warmed. Taste is luscious. Similar to smell with zip and subdued sourness, a lot less fruit, sourness comes out stronger after initial sips, wine notes under sourness and before harder vinegar bite, finishes well. Dig it.

Pinball (11337) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2013
37.5cl Bottle. Cloudy brown, large to begin with, but rather soon small offwhite head. Very nice aroma , white wine, mangos fruits, faint wild yeasts, some belgian funk, and some sweet malts. Flavor a little bit disappointing as the fruity stuff is in the background, and you get more malts and booze flavors. The wood bitterness is not a good match to the already malty sweet notes. The wild yeasts add some fizz and belgian yeasty flavors, making the beer more interesting.

yngwie (15191) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle, 375ml. Nice curtains occur, white head. Clear, dark golden body. Vinous, lemony scent with funk and a peppery touch and some tropical fruits. Some spices in the flavor too, itís vinous and lightly woody, with some bitterness. Some lemon. Full body, quite dry, with a pleasant carbonation level. Lasting finish. A really nice one. 131129

reebtogi (4757) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
375ml bottle pours a light golden color with a 2 finger white head that retains well and leaves some spots of lace. Aroma is wine grapes with some citrus and yeast. Taste is a fruity and malty sweetness with a lemony tartness finishing with a yeasty dryness on the palate. I enjoyed sampling this one.
