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.

On tap at City Beer in SF. Available the following day.

A - Pours copper with 1 finger of off-white head. Dissipates fast and leaves no lacing.

S/T - Honey wth gum and banana esters.

M - Moderate to full-bodied, malt dominated, and sweet.

D - Not bad, but this beer lacks any complexity. More hops, more malts, a tripel cannot live on yeast alone.

Serving type: on-tap

3.9/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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.

Pours a beautiful hazed orange color with a cantalope melon hue. Just wonderful to look at. Not a whole lot of lace from my lazy pour and it fell fast to a thin ring. Nose is vivacious and has plenty of exotic tropical fruit. Sweet and juicy. There's a touch of malt that hints at bread and offers just a light sweetness on the nose. No alcohol on the nose, but a nice bit of earthy coriander. The scent of orange is deep within the beer and there is an all around orange fruitiness.

Taste is wonderful. This beer offers a tremendous fruit sweetness with lush and heady tropical fruits and an all around orange flavor too. The malt suggests bread but does not become too heavy or too bready. Wonderful mouthfeel on this that is due to that malt. The coriander is earthy and lends a depth. There is a nice yeast dryness that takes the mid palate just as you are begining to swoon from all that wild tropical flavor. Then it finishes with a sweet and warming alcohol that has a spice and pepper of it's own. A lingering fruity aftertaste.

This beer is a delight!
