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: 3 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

22oz bottle served in a snifter.
bottled: march 2011 (batch 2)

pours a very cloudy straw yellow yielding about 1" creamy white/off-white head that lapses rather quickly into the thin cap, collar around the glass; decent lacing.

nose is sweet with notes of spice, yeast, honey and lemon zest; a nice aroma that definitely holds its own, but probably won't floor you. flavor is excellent, an improvement over the nose in my opinion. nice range of notes as it delivers what was evident in the nose and expands on it, notably with a marked jump in the hops department. well-balanced and tasty, with a dry, slightly puckering finish.

medium bodied mouthfeel with average carbonation. overall this a great, enjoyable tripel, full of flavor and quite refreshing... nice take on the style and another hit from pretty things.

Poured into a snifter.

A: Hazy pale gold with a good 3 fingers of fluffy white head. Decent head retention, webbed lacing and low carbonation.

N: Pear, lemon zest, clove, wheat bread and grassy noble hops.

T: Wheat bread, candy sugar, some orange juice and perhaps a hint of pineapple upfront. This is followed by notes of caramel, banana, pear and honeydew mid-palate. Finishes with grassy noble hops, lemon zest, dried hay and a persisting clove spiciness.

M: Full bodied, soft, creamy, smooth and slightly drying in the finish.

O: As the name suggests; soft and fluffy. Surprisingly juicy on the palate. Very balanced with a nice hoppy zing in the finish of lemony citrus and grassy florals. There is no alcohol presence whatsoever which makes this one dangerously drinkable. This is an excellent American-made Tripel.

22 oz. bomber, love the label,

A: Pours a hazy gold with a medium white head, great head retention and lace.

S: Yeast dominated with a lot of pear and white pepper.

T: Bready malt and sugar cane, has some definite sweetness. Hoppy it says on the label, but not overly so. Earthy flavours with a hint of grapefruit, but still very much to style.

M: Medium to full-bodied, soft carbonation, creammy, thick and sugary at times but holds it.

O: Once again I am impressed by Pretty Things. A tripel that really hides the alcohol, great for springtime per the label.
