Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Spring

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our first Spring, we brought you a magical tree full of waving babies… and the Baby Tree has stuck around, we’re happy to say. So for our second Spring, and each Spring since, we’ve made a pale gold, hoppy triple called Fluffy White Rabbits. This is a fun and Springy beer: possibly even our fun-est beer. In Yorkshire, they say “White Rabbits” on the first of the month for luck, and here’s to a lovely warm Springtime for all of us!

The beer is 8.5% abv, with Saaz, Styrian Goldings and Strisselspalt hops added aplenty. Fluffy mouthfeel: yes, really! There’s a faint sweetness with tropical fruit undertones. Fluffy White Rabbits is a very “Pretty Things” take on a Triple.

We use what we think are the finest ingredients around: malts from Weyermann (Germany) and Fawcett (Yorkshire) in this beer.

It’s a fun one, we hope you enjoy it!

Dann has been working on the poem for this beer since springtime of 2009. One day, maybe you’ll come back and find it here. One day.

Pours into a large tulip glass a deep honey color with a full on thick white head that leaves a broken ring of lace as it settles into a frothy mass.Grilled pineapple and other overripe tropical fruits in the nose along with a hint of vanilla,mild yeasty banana-like phenols in there as well.One of the more sweeter tripels I have had but it's no not near cloying,grilled fruits and white pepper,I got alot more spice on the palate than I did in the nose,some mild vanilla fills out the palate.A rich tripel,a good dessert beer in my opinion.

Had this on draft. I've liked just about everything I've had from Pretty Things so I suppose they had to strike out for me sooner or later. This beer is all right at best, and I don't feel that it's a good representation of the tripel style.
