Baby tree is a "quadruple" brewed with a single strain of Belgian yeast. While a commonly used style name on the internet, "quadruple" isn’t in fact a style name at all but a brand of beer produced by La Trappe in the Netherlands. Its found a common usage as a cover-all for the darkest and strongest beers produced by Trappist monks, mainly because they haven’t named them themselves. Two Belgian brewers use the term "Abt", Flemish for "Abbot". Historically the best beer made in an abbey (by the Cistercians/Trappists at least) was referred to in Latin simply as "prima melior". This has also become a brand name in recent years.Our "quadruple" benefits from the addition of 40lbs of dried California plums in the kettle - hopefully contributing to the overall dark-fruit character of the beer. It’s a dark, 8.6% beer..."Baby Tree" is Pretty Things’ first seasonal beer.

Brewed and bottled by Dann Paquette of Pretty Things Beer and Ale Project, Inc. at Buzzards Bay. Previously brewed at Paper City. Not a Paper City or Buzzards Bay brand beer.

Nice brown quadrupel but over valuated, we have something better in belgium. Caramel, dried and dark fruits as plum and figs, brown sugar. Okay, but body needs more softness and it is a bit more in the barleywine english way. Expensive.

From the 650 ml. bottle with an expiration date of February 2014 but this is a Quad that should last longer than that. And it seems to three months later. I get a beautiful reddish-brown pour with a full off-white head that fades but laces. The aroma is vibrant with Belgian sugar sweetness, yeast, dark fruits, molasses, and spice. The body is medium to full. The fruitiness of the nose is far more reserved in the taste but I still get plenty of Belgian malts, Belgian sugar, and biscuity and mild finish. Reminds me more of a quality Dubbel but I enjoyed it.

Draft at Meadhall. Dark clear amber pour with a white head. Malty Belgian biscuit nose. Nice taste, slight raisin and plum followed by lots of malt and a slight Belgian spice finish.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2014 June 2012 bomber pour..good pop from cap..medium brown dark brown hue.good amount of carbonation..aroma is dark fruit..figs..raisins..mouthfeel is silky and smooth and masks the 9% well...profile is solid yet sip seemingly melts away after coating the palate with brown sugar..molasses..raisin..not overly sweet but just the right sweetness..a well done example of an American quad that is pretty darn tasty 2 years down the road..good stuff..

markextrae (1693) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2014
Shared bottle. Poured a darker amber to Brown colour with a white head. Malts, candy sugar, raisins, figs, yeast, plums, bread. A very sweet aftertaste. The sweetness really reminds you of the la trappe quad. Which i didn’t like at all!

Pours Amber with a pronounced head. Very light sweet nose but not a lot there. Nice carbonation with creamy mouth feel and dry finish. Malt forward slight notes of toasted malt and just a hint of sweetness. Overall a great quad that I would gladly drink again! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
