BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Midnight Sun Brewing Co.
Alaska, United States

Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Ample cream colored head with a hazy orange body. Very yeasty & orange aroma. Bread & orange flavor initially, with a salty bitter finish. I think I'd like it better if it were sweete & less bitter. Very good.

This beer is massively carbonated as I easily achieved three fingers of solid foamy head. The bubbles turn to Rocky off white fuzz as they ever so slowly fade. Waves of lace are left behind. Body is a golden orange amber in tone that actually looks like orange marmalade. The nose is dominated by the orange peel but also brings some soft hop and mineral notes that add a bit of spiciness. With the first sip the mineral-based spiciness is the front runner in the flavor category. It is very earthy, sweet bread like and flowery with the coriander playing nicely. There is a nice complexity to this brew without being heavy or overwhelming. Hops punch in towards the end of the palette to add just a touch of balance. This really has a wonderful mouth feel, as it is all tingly and metallic but not offputting. This is what I call a perfectly drinkable triple.

Really get a lot of apple in this, that was my first reaction. Quite flavorful and light, I would like a little more meat on it when it goes down but overall a really good tripel that I can drink quite fast.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a hint of red. Has a light nose. Leaves some lacing in the glass. The flavor is of Belgian yeast and a touch of citrus on the backend.
