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!

Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen
Hazy amber color with compact head. Vinous aroma, grapes with light hazelnuts. Smooth mouthfeel; there is some acidity, fruitiness, wood, astringency; medium to strong bitterness.
Not a bad beer, but altogether its not cohesive.
