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.

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.
