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!

Leighton (20529) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2013 Keg at Mikkeller & Friends one night post-CBC in 2013. Pours cloudy gold with a white foam head. Juicy citrus aroma with bits of grapefruit. Sweet flavor with ripe citrus fruits. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Vaguely funky to finish but with mostly just sweet, juicy ripe citrus. Very good. Tasty. (3.8)

Draft during the Mikkeller Tap Takeover at King William IV - London. Pours clear amber with a strong, off-white head. Ripe fruits in the nose, grapes and berries mostly. Medium sweet flavor with some alcohol presence, light wood, dried fruits and hints of buttery bread. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation and a creamy texture. Moderately warming to finish with light dry wood, semi-dry berries and hints of bitter leaves. Decent.

translucent honey gold, puffy white ring and decent lacing. Yeasty nose is light tea and mango, softly spicy, leathery. Flavor overly sweet, wavy Brett esters with light lemon and pepper. Heavy cobweb through the finish. Pleasant, tons of pineapple and esters all over, very bright.

375ml bottle from Malloy’s (Lisle, IL). Popped over when I saw these finally crop up on BeerMenus. Side-by-side with the Grand Marnier version. Pours a nice amber hue, subtle haziness settles out with a nice deeper amber orange glow throughout. A bit darker, the frothy whitish head atop stays as filmy layer, small yet sticks around and laces ok. Aromas show a bit of dank basement, mellow fruit and oak. A touch buttery, some vanilla, melon and gentle citrus elements. Some cobwebs, more brett and oak as we start to settle in. White grape and white peaches, some gentle sweetness mixes with distinct oak, decent funk. A lot going on in this one. A touch sweet and fruit, mellow sourness grows, a bit lactic. Initial is a bit more sour, proving some nice tree fruit, apple and melon meet some white grape, gentle to decent sourness grows as we move on. A bit sweet, bready and doughy malts meet harvest fruit, gentle lactic acidity. Mango, touches of tropical fruit, faint waft of bubblegum. Middle is fruity, quickly moving to that more dry and woody backend. Some tannic play grows, gentle funk and brett. Cobwebs, gentle lactic acidity, a touch yogurty starts to pull at the palate. Gentle spiciness, citrus rind. Kinda loses it’s way, not relying much on a wild yeast presence. More fruit, barrel, and funkiness comes forward to me. A bit clunky and messy. Ok. Sweet, wild yeast and sourness could use some growth/time/upped presence. Probably better than the Grand Marnier edition though which seems overpowered and dominated by the barrel choice there.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - OCT 22, 2013
375mL thanks to MrChopin. Pours a clear golden with wispy white lacing. Nose is excellent cedar style Brett B, floral and sharp. Taste is mildly funky, some harsh butyric bite/stomach acid. Palate is harsher lemon. Still, refreshing.

375ml bottle pours a clear orange with some filmy, white head. Nose is fruity, white grape, grass, sugar. Flavor is better, sweet, fruity, light grape, light candy, a little vegetal, a little lemoncello, some bread, some brett too. Boozy finish.
