Notes/Commercial Description:
Free spirited Panty Peeler Tripel pours rambunctiously into your glass, releasing its engaging aroma. Curacao (bitter) orange peel and coriander create a beautiful yet bolder tripel by infusing color, citrus and spice. Belgian yeast adds playful character. Bottle conditioning assures a perfectly heady experience.

Brewed as a Belgian tripel but with American boldness, Panty Peeler is delicious yet spirited. Originally named Extreme Polar White Bier, it got nicknamed "Panty Peeler" along the way. Then we translated it to French for a while: Épluche-Culotte. Now we're back to calling it Panty Peeler and we've kicked up the coriander and orange peel to represent its original design.

Picked this up a few weeks back at the Whole Foods on Columbus Circle in New York City, having never had this beer or anything from Midnight Sun before. Didn't know what to expect from this beer but after letting this warm up and swishing it around for a while, this beer grew on me. While not as good as an imported Tripel, this was solid and extremely enjoyable while having a recessed alcoholic presence.

Nice pour to this, as this beer had a deep goldenrod hue, frothy head, and ample carbonation. Must of the foam settled as lacing before sliding down the edge of my pint glass and settling around the edge of the liquid. Nice amount of manga and papaya to go with the blood orange feel of the curacao and dough that the yeast brought to the table. Nice, fully mouthfeel to this with a hint of lemon pepper and coriander to spice things up. Not a lot of Belgian funk and this has a very "wet" mouthfeel to it that reinforced the blood orange aspect while the bubbles kept this light from start to finish.

However, the alcohol was stronger in taste than it was in actuality - which wasn't necessarily a bad thing. I almost thought this was a Belgian Pale Ale. The yeast livened this nicely and there were more than enough flavors here to offset any heaviness from the alcohol and yeast. Good thing that this came in a big bottle - it grew on me as I worked my way through it and let it warm up and the sweetness of it tied everything in together nicely. Great stuff and maybe the most accessible example of the style that I've ever had.

In a snifter at cellar temperature, but of course.

This one has a fizzy one-finger white head that's gone in seconds, and it's color is a crystal-clear, radiant tangerine orange. Numerous carbonation streams flow to the surface.

It smells like bread, orange zest, bananas, pears, cloves, coriander, and maybe a little earthy nutmeg. I really like the orange that come through.

What a sweet flavor profile! At first there's a light clove and banana taste, transitioning to a more zesty orange spiced up with the coriander and subtle nutmeg. The drier and more astringent orange peel turns up in the peppery finish, with a delectably sweet, doughy breadiness eventually taking over the aftertaste. An awesome herbal bitterness kind of hangs around all the while, balancing the sweetness. Superbly-concealed alcohol, I might add.

The feel is done just right, I think. A full medium with some vivacious carbonation.

I've baked rich white breads infused with citrus zest and spices, and that's precisely what this reminds me of. It's a very unique tripel, endowed with citrus, spice, and everything nice.
