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.

Poured from a bomber into a snifter, the beer is a bright, hazy, almost opaque, orange-copper coloring with a frothy, low profile, off-white head that quickly settles into a filmy surface coating. Aromas of sweetbreads in the backbone, supporting orange sweetness and a coriander and clove spicing. Flavors are tangy sweet on the forward tongue, with an effervescence that almost turns to sharp in mouth. Berry and citrus sweetness intertwines with bready notes, a solid spice blend, and a subtle Belgian funk. Berry, citrus, and tropical fruit sweetness blend with coriander and clove in the aftertaste, with a slick, smooth, slightly crisp finish. Solid brew and easy to drink.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: The beer is relatively clear golden yellowish orange in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that quickly died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of orange peels are present in the nose and become a little stronger as the beer warms up along with some notes of malty sweetness.
T: The initial taste is somewhat sweet and has flavors of orange peels; hints of coriander spices are also present in the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: For the most part, this beer manages to hide its alcohol rather well from the taste although you can definitely tell that it has some strength due to the sweetness from the malts. It's definitely a beer that you would want to sip at a relaxed pace. I found this to be a little more drinkable compared to some of the other beers in the style but felt it could have used a little more coriander to contrast with the sweetness.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from 22 oz bottle into Maudite tulip glass.
Gold color with small head.
Aroma of sweet malts, coriander, citrus zest, earthy notes & bubblegum.
Moderate carbonation and mouthfeel.
Flavors of sweet malts, caramel, cactus juice or something a little funky, slight alcohol. Tasty and easy enough to drink, but missing some of the malt body and esters that most Belgian tripels provide.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

A nice golden orange amber body, but a bit cloudy and hazy. Head forms off white with some creamy retention, rises about three fingers and settles to a thin puck. Little rising carbonation that's hard to see.

Bit of a muted nose, and a wine like sense. Slightly citrus but with not much malt sweetness. Clean but sensing a little thickness perhaps coming, with a little bit of sweet bready taste perhaps.

Palate fills nicely but with a little bit of muted sense. Sweetness of malts and a little bit of Belgian sensing sugars come out a bit on the swallow with some bread. A little vinous sourness mixing in with a fruity character, but doesn't come out very distinctly. Good carbonation that doesn't detract, with maybe a bare hint of sour orange.

Overall it's a solid well made tripel, but it's unfortunately not that memorable for me to desire again.
