How can one not love the Alive line? Itís 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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

375ml bottle pours a light golden color with a 2 finger white head that retains well and leaves some spots of lace. Aroma is wine grapes with some citrus and yeast.
