A: pours a slightly cloudy golden yellow with a small white head and minimal retention as it fades to a small pool and a collar around the glass. decent lacing but not spectacular
S: Smells amazing with notes of pale malt, fruity esters, spicy yeast and a bit of grassy and floral hop aroma.
T: sweet malt starts things off followed by some fruitiness, grassy flavors, some spicy yeast a bit of floral hop comes in as well toward the end. swallow is a touch bitter with more floral hop and fruitiness. This beer is phenomenal.
M: soft but noticeable carbonation and a medium feel in the mouth. very smooth and silky
O: This beer is dangerously drinkable and very well made. the flavors and complexity are astounding. if the head production was bigger this beer would be perfect. This is my first beer from Pretty Things and if their other beers are this good it won't be my last.

Bomber bottle (bottled apr/14) poured into a stemmed tulip glass, colour is a clear light gold. Creamy white head with really solid lacing and retention.
S - slick candy sugars, lemony yeast, pecan. Grassy and piney hop notes, a bit of a full bodied belgian yeast character, spicy and robust. Quite light overall with some floral character.
T - an immediate rolling flavour cascading in. Strong full sweet belgian yeasty notes, and also a grassy hoppiness. A really intense flavour, lightly caramel, malt sweetness, lemony, spicy yeast, peppery, and a subtle smoky foresty character. Piney and a bit herbal as the flavour transitions, coating with a bit more robust oiliness then dries out to an even balanced finish. Flavour is a bit more aggressive than some of the belgian tripels, but pretty things makes it a controlled rollercoaster.
M - Quite full but balance is done really well with so much going on. Starts with more sweet alcohol then gets more hoppy and bitter, some of the yeast comes into play as well helping to dry out the finish. Carbonation is on the light side but the alcohol is a positive aspect here, though it does make itself known, it doesn't mean this doesn't drink really sublimely. A big beer, but it satisfies.
Haven't had many tripels in awhile, but fluffy rabbits is excellent, and a good example in general of american brewers staying relatively true to style while upping the assertiveness of these beers. This is a complex melange of full bodied yeast, sugary alcohol, with also an assertive floral/piney/herbal hop character, all woven together to make for an intense but memorable brew.
