COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed by Mikkeller at De Proefbrouwerij in Lochristi, Belgium.

Itís Alive! is Mikkellers answer and tribute to the trappist beer Orval. Itís Alive is an easy-to-drink beer, with a lot of hops. The color is amber, the foam is high, white and dense. The potent Brettanomyces culture makes Itís Alive continue to develop in the bottle.
Ingredients : Water, malt (pale and cara), light candy, hops (hallertauer and styrian goldings), yeast and brettanomyces.

Dzhigga (349) - Kirov, RUSSIA - OCT 9, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2015 Bottle. Amber color with huge steady head. Aroma is similar to belgian trappistes: some dry fruits, some vanilla, some apple. Complex aroma. Taste with some sour notes with nice load of hops. Finish is long. Very nice tribute to belgian trappistes.

Eructoblaster (3844) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 20, 2015
Bottle - 330ml. Hazy copper body with an average off-white foamy head. Lovely fresh malty/hoppy aroma with herbal, citrusy, grainy, and kiwi hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its well balanced malty/hoppy taste carries herbal and citrusy notes. Ends with a long, dry bitter/herbal finish. Very interesting.

Sdaniel90 (915) - Mexico City, MEXICO - SEP 15, 2015
Bottle, 75cl. Fruity citrus aroma with a deep sourness. Medium bodied with moderate to fizzy carbonation. Dry and astringent, with a stinging herbal bitter finish. Unorthodox and very bitter.

jercraigs (9849) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2015 2015-09-09. Very lightly hazy dark amber body, good sized beige head. 4+ Aroma is lightly musty and fruity, fairly subtle. Whisper of caramel and something that is not quite marshmallow like. 7+ Flavour is similarly nuanced, lightly musty and funky, malt base has light biscuity accents. Fairly bitter throughout, bitterness lingers in the finish. Average plus bodied palate, good carbonation. 3++ You can feel the Orval inspiration here in the hops and light funk, but the overall impression is much maltier than Orval. Quite tasty. Bottle shared by Ferris.

Ferris (12747) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2015
Bottle - Soured malts and light ketchup. Clear gold with a decent beige head. Light tartness, yeasty notes and a funky finish. Odd but OK.
