Itís Alive! is Mikkellers answer and tribute to the trappist beer Orval. Itís Alive is an easy-to-drink beer, with a lot of hops. The color is amber, the foam is high, white and dense. The potent Brettanomyces culture makes Itís Alive continue to develop in the bottle.
Ingredients : Water, malt (pale and cara), light candy, hops (hallertauer and styrian goldings), yeast and brettanomyces.

Korcz (2916) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 19, 2017
Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Ciężkie, słodkie, lekko apteczne, pozostawiające specyficzny posmak, kojarzący mi się z wizytą u dentysty.

SpringsLicker (3587) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2017
Bottle from fridge, maybe 8 yrs old? Clear deep copper with a minimal cream colored head. The aroma is spicy, flowery, sweet and fragrant. The flavor is softly bitter and dry with a finish that mirrors the flowery fragrance of the aroma. Nice beer.

klm1 (1403) - Bled/SF, - SEP 29, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2017 Head to head vs. USAlive: Pours copper/amber, slightly clear, with high carbonation and long lasting off-white/beige creamy/foamy head. Aroma: grape (bretta), with floral, slightly citrusy, spicy notes of hops. Flavor: the same as aroma, supported with crisp, bread like malt note with just hint of candy. There are also fruity esters. Finish is dry, slightly bitter. Body is medium, texture is almost creamy soft, carbonation is medium. The winer in brothers duel.

MatusBeer (646) - Koöice, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 1, 2016
One of my favourite belgian ale beers. Hazy Amber colour with huge head off. Aroma of funky yests, apples. Taste is between sweet and sour, huge range of fruits like apples, citrus fruits etc. Feeling of higher % of alcohol. Dry finish.

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - MAY 27, 2016
Limpido color rame con fragile schiuma bianca. Aroma di pesca e lievito con sentori di toffee, malto e legno; gusto mediamente dolce con una punta di acidulo delicato, nei sapori richiama gli aromi e regala un finale mediamente asciutto, conciso e amarognolo. Poco corposa ma dissetante, piacevole!

haukur (1917) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - MAY 5, 2016
backlog, numerous occasions. Light brown amber color with a dence head. Aroma is brett, grass and hey. Dry with slight hints though from the candysugar, slight esters. Very nice.
