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.

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.

The color is pretty close to authentic Belgians, but a bit more orange. Not clear, a bit cloudy, the color isn't bad, but this beer is seriously lacking in head. There's almost none even with a vigorous pour and the little bit that's there has no retention. Each swirl leaves a light spotty lace.

It's got an Earthy scent, and both the coriander and orange peel are well represented. I can't pick up any malt presence and Belgian yeast is not there, at least in the smell.

The taste is where everything comes together. The coriander and orange meld perfectly with the candied sugar and yeast to give a really pleasant taste that would quench my dessert fetish.

Easy on the palate, it's got a citrusy sweetness that never goes overboard. The sweet and acid play nicely with the funky yeast strain. Reasonably high ABV is well hidden behind all the other stuff going on. There's more carbonation in the finish as it closes with a slight burn and some faint heat and bitterness lasting til the next sip.

It's a nice treat overall. There are some rough edges that need to be smoothed a bit, but aside from the look and smell, it's a nice facsimile of a real Belgian.
