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.

22oz bottle served in a glass chalice.

S - sweet and fruity with a little spice in the background.

T - starts out sweet upfront with a blast of harsh alcohol that lingers for a while.

F - medium bodied with dull carbonation.

O - I'd like to try a fresher bottle than what I had (1+ yrs) but I really wasn't thrilled with the beer I drank.

A slightly cloudy golden yellow color with a white head. A nice sweetness to it from the malt and sugar. Plenty of citrus character and a bit of pineapple as well. A touch of yeast as well as a mild spiciness. The flavor is quite nice. Sweet fruit: both citrus and tropical fruits. Just a light spiciness and some yeast flavor to it as well. Pretty solid beer.

A-a clear organish golden color with a fingers worth of white head that leaves some lacing around the top

S-pale malts, coriander, yeast. Has a very earthy smell to it

T-pale, breadlike malts, coriander, light citrus, green apples, some peppery spice, and a light yeast funkiness to it

M-medium body, moderate carbonation

Overall probably not the best Tripel I have had but a decent tasting beer.

Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Served in a Midnight Sun goblet.

Pours a clear deep golden color with a single-finger white head that dissipates fairly quickly into a thin collar. Plenty of bubbles visible in the glass. Given the look on this and Fallen Angel, I'm thinking there must be nucleation spots on the bottom of this glass. Still, very nice looking.

The nose carries a bit of earthy mustiness along with a touch of citrus and spice. Nothing too exciting. Really muted. The flavor has some mild phenols plus a touch of citrus and some backing grain. Nothing too interesting, unfortunately.

Body is light-medium with a hefty dose of carbonation and a dry finish. There's a touch of chewiness. Mild alcohol as well.

There wasn't anything particularly wrong with this one, I just couldn't find anything about it to really like.

22 oz bomber, $9.99 at DeCicco's in Ardsley, NY
"Month and week bottled" info notched onto the side of the label.

Pours clear, dull tangarine amber, medium tan head, moderate in size, especially for the style. Head quickly going to a thicker collar and the remaining in limited fashion in tiny bits on the side of the glass.

Nose exhibits more then a hint of bubble gum fruityness, oranges, and a late wiff of peppery yeast.

Tasty and complex tripel, with ample fruitness, yeasty phenolics and a just satisfactory malt base going on. More oranges, honey, vanilla, again some pepper and drying hops late intot he finish. Somewhat sweet and carbonation is a bit on the tame side. I enjoyed it, I'd like to enjoy it again, perhaps with some mussels, or with some pungent creamy cheese.

Respectable American take on the classic Belgian style.
