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.

3.71/5  rDev -7.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Look: Light golden color; transparent. Lots of bubbles visual from the carbonation. Pours with a large 2+ finger white creamy head that dies down leaving an uneven thin coating on the surface of the beer and pieces of lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell: Scent typical of a Belgium Triple, only milder. Slightly sweet with aroma of the yeasts.

Taste: Tastes like a typical Triple, only slightly milder. Nice flavor - sorta sweet with a yeasty finish.

Feel: Between Medium and Thin. Nice mild fizzy sensation from the carbonation.

Overall: Very good Triple that is lighter than normal. I would gladly drink this again.

I see others saying they taste a hint of funk, but mine tasted like pretty much ALL funk. It was not pleasant. I can smell the belgian tripel, but the taste gets overwhelmed by what I can only describe as old PBR flavor. Checked the bottle date and it says it was bottled last month, so not sure what's up.
