COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Ungstrup (29018) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2010
Bottled. An unclear brown beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of fruit - over ripe, spices - cardemomme, malt, and a bit caramel. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of malt and spices - cardemomme and more, as well as medium notes of caramel, leading to a dry spicy and alcoholic finish. The alcohol tickles the tongue.

Cloudy reddish brown beer. Decent off white head. A little fruit on the nose. Softish semi dry palate. Soft malt with a subtle banana and bubblegum note. More obvious is a sweet fruity note, presumably from the dried plums. Segues seamlessly into a little spice and a touch of hop bitterness. Well joined up tasty quad.
