Brewed by Mikkeller at De Proefbrouwerij in Lochristi, Belgium.

It’s Alive! is Mikkellers answer and tribute to the trappist beer Orval. It’s 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 It’s Alive continue to develop in the bottle.
Ingredients : Water, malt (pale and cara), light candy, hops (hallertauer and styrian goldings), yeast and brettanomyces.

dnicolaescu (1374) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAY 26, 2015
BOTTLE 75 CL. Hazy amber, light tan head. Aroma is huge caramel sweetness with traces of citrus hops - smells like an old IPA really. tastes sweet, again traces of citrus hops, a moderate bitter finish with notes of plastic and mould. A tribute to Orval? You’re kidding...

minutemat (2740) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2015
330ml bottle @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours hazy amber with large cream head. Fruitier than I expected with some hedgerow berries gatecrashing the party. Lovely complex brett with smooth floral yeast. Decided to age a bottle of this to see how it develops.

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 11, 2015
Bottle picked up in the Mikkeller beer shop. Slightly cloudy copper, frothy lasting white head. Yeast notes in the aroma, loads of spice too, amber malt. Peppery spice flavour, dries out toward the finish. Light body for the big abv. Fizzy and zesty. Really excellent.

ogniskowicz (486) - POLAND - MAR 11, 2015
Aromat: kiszonka, porzeczki, wiśnie, karmel, do tego nuty stajenne. Świetny. Smak: dość słodkie z kwaśnym owocowym posmakiem, jest sporo owoców, szlachetny alkohol i goryczka jakby z sera pleśniowego (!). Na podniebieniu pozostaje drożdżowo-kwaśny posmak. Mistrzowskie piwo.

arminjewell (8749) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Pour out of bottle, thanks Aaron! Hazy golden pour with fluffy white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, sweet sugary notes into white fruit, lots of yeasty, doughy notes into a bit of funk, slight tropical fruit. Taste was a mix of white fruit, peach, some herbal notes into a bit of slight vanilla, touch of funky note into a slight tropical fruit, finishing dry, slightly doughy.
