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!

Borefts 2013 - Tart wine aroma and initial sharp wine taste, quite acidic. Later the sweet mango helps tone down the sharpness. Finishes dry.

Keg at Borefts Bier Festival 2013. Taste is sour, fruity with mango and citrus, very nice

Heldere caramel kleur met een volle kraag. Zure geur. Smaakt een beetje mat. Net iets te zuur.

Pours a copper beer with a white head. Smells mango and tastes also like it. Low carbo, medium body and a sticky texture.

Tap @ Borefts 2013. Pours a clear amber beer with a thin off white head on top. Aroma is fruity, incredibly vineous with defintely big Chardonnay influences. Brett is also represented in the aroma. Mango is not really detectable. Flavor returns a lot of sweet sour Chardonnay influences and mango is slightly present here. Low carbo, well balanced, slightly watery mouthfeel.

Sampled draft @ Borefts 2013. Clear amber with a small off-white head. Nose is Chardonnay, brett, faint mango, nice big brett profile, noble rot bacteria aka getting some carrots, very funky, nice. Taste is mango, noble rot bacteria aka carrots reminding me of Funky (e) Star, getting some light bretty mango but this is more carrot than mango in a good & very enjoyable way, candy sugar, touch bitter herbs, caramel, funky, grass,… Big thinned, lots of brett body. Lovely beer which reminds me of Orval, the cost on one bottle is equal to 24 bottles of Orval in Belgium… Loved this brew.
