3.63/5  rDev -6.9%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

22oz bottle poured into a tulip.

A - Cloudy dark brown with a light biege head, good lacing.

S - Band-aid, dried dark fruits, faint sweet/carmel.

T - Almost all dark fruits (raisons/prunes), ends with the band-aid funk from the belgian yeast. That's pretty much it.

M - Medium. Low carbonation, a touch watery for the style.

D - Very easy to drink, alcohol is hidden well.

Very one dimensional. Almost all dried dark fruit taste. It still tastes good, but not as complex as others of it's style.

A - Great pour, with a dark auburn tint to it. Thick foam with quickly dissipates as you pour.

S - Refreshing crisp smell, almost like ripening fruit.

T - Really sweet taste that lingers on your tongue. Not overwhelming, yet very refreshing.

M - Not heavy or thick, but it has a quality to it that hangs around your tastebuds.

O - Really nice ale, from great brewers. Pretty Things has put out another winner.

4.36/5  rDev +11.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured into tulip

A: Pours a deep mahogany with hints of ruby when held to light with a large, creamy, khaki, 3 finger head

S: Fruity and musty attic aromas, with hints of earth and clove.

T: Rich plum, apricot, and cherry flavors up front with slight funky Belgian yeast tones underneath. Barnyard flavors are there, but very subtle. Very little in the way of hops, but a slight old-world hop bitterness lasts in the finish along with black cherry tones.

M: Slightly viscous body with mild to low carbonation.

O: This is an excellent example of an American produced quad. Fruity and rich; this beer is a great after dinner sipper. Pretty Things hits a home run with Baby Tree. If you’re a fan of dark Belgian or Trappist beers, this is definitely worth picking up.

3.99/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - Poured into the center of a St. Bernardus chalice. The beer takes on a deep brown hue, with a surprisingly thin head. The head recedes to pretty much nothing after a while, leaving little to no lacing on the glass. I noticed just a little bit of visible carbonation. Tough to spot through this dark, somewhat cloudy beer.

S - Nice aromas that I associate with a quad, albeit a little lighter. Dark fruit is dominant, but there is also a little indistinct sweetness.

T - Again, all the tastes that one would expect, and follows the nose fairly closely. Dark fruit again dominates, the sweetness is a little more distinct here, mild, but something like caramel. There is also a touch of alcohol on the finish.

M - The weakest area of this beer for me. Much thinner than I would expect, and without real supporting carbonation. Finishes clean. Slight dryness and alcohol heat.

O - Nice beer. It doesn't stack up with the best, but I certainly wouldn't turn one down.
