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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a Koningshoeven chalice. Brewed April 2013.

A: Hazy-gold, light creamy head. Looks like a tripel.

S: Softly floral and engagingly fruity Belgian yeast. Very nice. Hint of dry spice.

T: Tasty! A really good American tripel, in that it tastes indistinguishable from the best of the Belgians. The flavor may be slightly lacking in depth, but it hits all the hallmarks of a good tripel, from the crisp graininess to the dry-sweet spiciness. Lingering endtaste goes on for ages.

M: Luxuriously creamy in one of the best possible ways, punctuated by dry spells and coriander-esque spice. The final feeling is neutral-dry, leaving just a hint of its former glory. Moreish.

O: A damn solid beer; highly recommended. Pretty Things continues to impress, and this is perhaps the most precisely-executed of their beers I've had. Spot on. Kudos.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance:
Pours a clear amber that borders on gold and very white and frothy head that leaves some nice lacing.

Smell:
The smell has a strong and bitter hop presence. The nose detects some clove, spices and yeast as well as a bit of alcohol.

Taste:
The hops are flowery with a bitter aftertaste. Some of the flavors include banana, which accompanies the flowery hops, and a little bit of yeast. The malts are fairly sweet but play minor role and are usually overcome by the hops.

Mouthfeel:
Biting carbonation and medium bodied. The beer feels a bit slick and ends dry.

Overall:
A damn fine Tripel and worth getting your hands if you can. I plan on getting at least one more to share with friends. the Tripel is pretty complex but I had to wait a bit for the beer to warm up before I could get the flavors.
