Baby tree is a "quadruple" brewed with a single strain of Belgian yeast. While a commonly used style name on the internet, "quadruple" isnt 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 havent 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. Its 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.

philipmeese (84) - Rowayton, Connecticut, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Bomber from The Craft Beer Cellar in Belmont. Pours a deep amber with a thin off-white head that soon disappears. Slightly astringent aroma with deep fruit tones. Flavor big stewey fruit, sweet with a light bitter, salt to balance. Medium body with a fine natural carbonation, fitting the full flavor profile. Overall a little on the sweet side, and a delicious beer, to be savored.

wchesser (2047) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2016
Bomber from one of Pretty Things final runs purchased in Jan. 2016 drank in April, 2016. Slightly murky reddish brown. Nose is oxidized with some cardboard and also light prune. Taste is very dry, especially for the style, but also seems unattenuated with some oxidation. Was really looking forward to this but quite disappointed.
