Pours extremely clear with a finger of pure white foam. Retention is whimsical as is the lacing.
Aroma picks up spice from the yeast. Grain and apricot add a bit of complexity. The hops have fallen out. No alcohol.
Taste is grain and spice that builds throughout. Quite spicey overall. Mild apricot flavors hit late, lingering. Not much overall fruitiness from the yeast.
Medium body with mild carbonation. Dries the palate. Age has muted the alcohol. Hops have dropped.
A hoppy tripel that age has muted the hops. Dry but not overly complex. This is a nice tripel but not great. I would meander back to it again but would want something fresher to see how fresh hops would change the beer. Enjoy!

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.
"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, 'It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver.'" - Jack Handy
