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!

brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle @ Mikkeller. Some haze to the amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma is nicely fruity. Good mango, some caramel, vanilla, and tart melon. A touch of pineapple, too. Fairly sweet flavor. Lots of tropical fruit, mango, peach, caramel, and vanilla. Citric tartness, a bit of unripe melon, and apple. A bit musty, too.

shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 31, 2013
Tap at Delirium Tokyo. Rusty amber colour, small off-white bubbly head. Aroma is very nice, mango, gooseberry, lychee maybe, white wine, Brett, and bizarrely gaffer tape. Taste is great too, gueze-like flat creaminess, slightly plastic like, nice mango fruitiness, sour cream. Real nice stuff.

bulldogops (2490) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 21, 2013
Rating #827 - December 13, 2013 - On tap at Beer Revolution. Clear golden pour with a sticky white foam that bubbles away fairly quick. Wondrous aromas of oaky chardonnay, mango, peach, lavender. Palate is sticky tropical fruit punch sweetness, and the sourness comes in with some glorious oaky dryness. Phenomenal sour ale.

Bottle 375ml @ Geokkjer
Pours clear deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, brett, mango, funk and pineapple. Taste is light to medium sweet, light bitter and light sour with a long brett and fruity finish. Body is medium, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.

teorn88 (7682) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 10, 2013
37.5cl bottle. It pours an opaque dark orange body with a medium off-white head. Nose is loads of wine barrel, funk and subdued mango notes. Taste is white wine and funk with horse blanket and some slight fruity notes. If A great funky vinous beer with not much of a fruity character.

VertBaconStrips (2389) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - DEC 8, 2013
How can one not love the Alive line? It’s awesome. Smeelyy- sweet mango fruit meat, honeysuckle, lemonade, wine things - yummo more when warmed. Taste is luscious. Similar to smell with zip and subdued sourness, a lot less fruit, sourness comes out stronger after initial sips, wine notes under sourness and before harder vinegar bite, finishes well. Dig it.

Pinball (12145) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2013
37.5cl Bottle. Cloudy brown, large to begin with, but rather soon small offwhite head. Very nice aroma , white wine, mangos fruits, faint wild yeasts, some belgian funk, and some sweet malts. Flavor a little bit disappointing as the fruity stuff is in the background, and you get more malts and booze flavors. The wood bitterness is not a good match to the already malty sweet notes. The wild yeasts add some fizz and belgian yeasty flavors, making the beer more interesting.

yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle, 375ml. Nice curtains occur, white head. Clear, dark golden body. Vinous, lemony scent with funk and a peppery touch and some tropical fruits. Some spices in the flavor too, it’s vinous and lightly woody, with some bitterness. Some lemon. Full body, quite dry, with a pleasant carbonation level. Lasting finish. A really nice one. 131129

sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2013
Poured medium amber with a frothy off white head. Aroma of sour fruit and caramel malt. Medium body, flavour is quite musty, light tropical fruit, some meat, dry, meaty aftertaste. Not good.
