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.

Classic triple body, orange and yellow hazed to nearly opaque looks just about perfect here. Head and lacing are rather lacking...or heck almost non existent. Edit, second pour form the bottle gave a nice inch of white head. I'm not sure if there's more yeast in the bottle or it was just a faster pour. Still not much in the lacing department.

Caramel malts with clove spices and a very subtle hint of hop aroma in the finish. Not a lot to speak of.

Given the simple nose, I'm rather pleased with the intense and complex flavors. Pear fruit flavor complemented by clove spices and caramel and cracker malts. There's a nice finish of hops, nothing to justify calling it a hoppy triple, but still well done.

I can't find an abv number on the bottle, but this one is clearly a big heavy beer. There's a good bit of carbonation, but the bite of alcohol is a good bit stronger than the carbonation.

A well made triple have a new brewery to be distributed here in Kentucky. Nothing special here, but I can't see anyone a fan of this style being disappointed.

Well I assume it's from this year making it around 8 or 9 months old. Snagged at the house of 1,000 beers for 5 bucks!

A - A nice hard pour produced a 1/2 inch of foamy white head. Beer itself is a hazy bright yellow with a ton of tiny yeast floaties (to be expected with unfiltered or aged beers)

S - Grassy hops is quite interesting in a triple makes it smell earthy along side of fruity yeasts, bubble gum malts, and coriander spice.

T - Ow that's quite good the hops counter act the dry aspect of your typical Belgium yeasts giving it a fruity sweet body. The finish is a tad bittering with pine and spiced coriander. At times the sweetness reminds me of pound cake. Tasty stuff.

M - Damn good for almost 9% drinks with a medium bodied and has just enough hop bite to conceal any alcohol taste.

Overall I love this experimental brew it takes the aspects of dry hoping and mixes it up with the fruity aspects of your typical Belgium Triple. If it's still around I will be sure to acquire another bottle especially for 5 bucks!

A - Pours very golden or straw like in color with a fluffy white head. Not much lacing.

S - Pears & apples on the nose, bready malts and spices.

T - Oranges, belgian yeast, grassy & a slightly bitter finish.

M - Somewhat lighter body but medium carbonation.

O - Nice twist to a tripel belgian. Overall, I'd rather just have one style or the other, not combined.
