This version of the Its 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!

Holmen1 (5708) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2014
Fra fat p Whats Brewing smaksfest nov-14 : uklar mrk oransje med tett skum som varer. Aroma minner om solvarme tropiske frukter og sure br. Mangoen crasher med det vinse fra chardonnayfatet, og det hele bllir litt ufriskt.

RexTalionis (3713) - FINLAND - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy mahogny in color with an off-white head. Theres instantly some part of barnyard and vinegary notes on the nose, which are closely followed by some notes of white wine grapes from the Chardonnay barrel and then theres also subtle tropical fruityness. Very funky notes indeed. Bit of wooden barrel notes mixed with some funky and citrus notes in taste. Theres also some hints of tropical fruityness with influences of sweet and overcooked carrot in the middle here. Little bit of spices and more of them citrus notes in the end. Quite tasty though.

bastarda (496) - Freiburg, GERMANY - AUG 24, 2014
@Cerveteca Lisboa, 13th August 14; already most complex in its aromas, beautifully ranging from dry cidre, woody, oaky notes to some hints of white wine and even a whiff of very fresh Brie and some really very subtle hint of Mango. Tastewise, its a lot less sour than expected from sniffing but an absolotely fine tartness with woody notes, a lot like Champagne and a very subtle hint of Mango.
