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!

Slatetank (17) - York, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 18, 2011
I had this at O’reilly’s in Harrisburg -served chilled in a pint allowed to gradually rise in temp. The color is brilliant golden with sunset appearance with golden brown near the crown so light at the base toward amber above with a rocky 1 inch cap. There is light chill haze with visible carbonation that moves upward slowly. The bead is fine and the lace sticks in a frothy way to the glass. The smell is sweet with some tropical notes from the yeast and a slight orange rind aroma with mild floral hop odors and slight spice with a hint of alcohol. The feel is moderately full bodied with some sugary edges and moderately bitter which gives the perception of balance with the sugar texture and smooth creamy yeast which also brings out some hop acidity and mild toasted malt textures to round out the feel with a semi-dry finish. The flavor up front is yeasty, tangy and gently sweet with a mild malt body and hint of ripe tropical fruit which leads to a more citrus and spice flavor and the bitterness comes forward in the middle. The flavor is lightly toasted in the malt dept and a slight grassy herbal element also peeks through with only a slight amount of alcohol in the flavor. The gentle citrus notes add a mild level of astringency and you get the idea there is some candy sugar as the flavor leans to the sweet side but a hint of hoppiness is still present in the finish. I liked this beer a lot, it is a satisfying and drinkable beer for the abv, I think it fits the style well -a hoppier, more American take on the tripel style which is refereshing and well brewed.

Well, this one had a tough place to fill in a pretty hefty lineup. But, it filled the role well. Hops and triple for me have always been separate hunts, but combined here in a pleasing fashion. Poured from the bomber. Shared with a good friend.

Tap. Golden with one finger head. Light fruitiness with mild sweetness. Bready with a bit of citrus. Mild hops in the finish. Strange take on a Tripel. I can?t decide if it works or not.
