COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This version of the It’s 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 – it is very much alive!

3.1
toscanoigor (285) - Belo Horizonte, BRAZIL - JUL 3, 2017
Cerveja marrom escura, turva, com pouca formação de espuma. Aroma de brett, madeira, uvas, um pouco de frutado (mas não muita presença de manga). No sabor, a manga aparece, muito no fundo, mas o paladar ficou muito apagado com o envelhecimento, ela não entrega o que promete no aroma.

3.3
explosivedog (1181) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 30, 2017
375ml bottle. Pours murky brown. Mango, buttery oak, vanilla, sharp white wine, little peach, gooseberry, lots of Belgian yeast esters. Lots going on, and I’m not sure it all goes together, especially not loving the Chardonnay. Quite flat. Just ok.

3.8
BlazerT (1102) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JAN 31, 2017
Bottle. Sensoric. Deep amber with moderate, semi-thick, dirty white head. Moderate head retention and lacing. Up front and first of all moderate Brett notes, barnyard, funky woody. Moderate barrel notes with light to moderate stone fruits. Moderate heavy malty notes - mainly caramel. Taste is moderately sweet and light to moderately acidic (more light than moderate). Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, finish is semi-dry, woody, fruity, vinous, brett. In overall Brett oriented beer with not so strong acidic notes. Highly drinkable with excellent ABV covered, a little bit too malty, but still really good.

mikske79 (1666) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - JAN 25, 2017
Een geur zoals een tripel. De smaak is een beetje bitter, een beetje fruitig. Het valt best mee.

3.4
drsandman (1464) - New York, USA - DEC 31, 2016
Pours a clear deep orange, off white head. Aroma is malty mango, light Brett, oak, huge sweet malt, figs. Flavor is super sweet fruit, oak, earth, barn, must. Medium bodied, quite sweet with weird malt dominance

Samtzu (441) - Palmerston North, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 6, 2016
375ml bottle. Fruity nose with minor sweet notes. The same follows through in the flavour with subtle sour notes added. A fantastic barrel finish and mango notes at the very end.

3.9
fkoolen (1212) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2016
37,5cl bottle at @Vanmoll, Eindhoven. Cloudy, murky golden colour, nicely stable white head. Rich brettanomyces sour, tard and earthy tones, mango gives sweetness and a big body, chardonnay in the background. Well balanced.

3.7

bottle shared at a bar, poured a murky light amber colour with a white head. nose of spiced brett, funk, sweet mango, white grapes, wet grain, slight sour in the taste, sweet fruits, mango, passion fruit. vineous wine, nice and dry aftertaste.

3.6
omega (900) - NEW ZEALAND - OCT 28, 2015
Pulled this one out of the fridge way too cold, so sitting here nosing the goodness of this beer. Mango wasn’t too evident on the palate and the flavours fell away quicker than I would have liked. It’s a good beer but the flavours were muted..

2.8
Florya (2023) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2015
How : bottle Appearance : clear light golden, small white head. Aroma : citrus, floral, smoke, grapes and brown sugar. Palate : medium body, average carbonation.
