BEER INFO

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

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.

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.

Fruity but dull. Has a little too sweet taste for me but very refreshing.

Pours clear copper amber color with particles floating in it leading to a 1 finger foamy beige head that faded and left decent spotty lacing.

Smells of caramel, brown sugar, sweet malt, candied sugar, orange, pear, gummy bears, apple, graham cracker and musty funk. Very sweet overall with the orange and coriander coming through for nice strong accents.

Tastes like it smells with green apple, rotting pear, caramel, brown sugar, sweet malt, candied sugar, orange, gummy bears, graham cracker, honey, coriander and other light spices like pepper and cinnamon add nice accents, followed by a mild musty funk that is like wet cardboard or wet farm animal hair. Like the nose it's very sweet overall with the orange and coriander coming through with the mix of malts, sugar and light spices. This hides the ABV and is much mellower than most Tripel's, easier to drink.

Mouthfeel is slick and buttery smooth to the point of being thin and watery, it has a lot of sweetness and some fruity flavors/smells that let it flow down with ease while covering the 8.5% ABV. Body is medium, almost chewy and sweet, yet somehow this felt easy to drink and had enough complexities and balance to keep my interest. A solid beer that I've had before tonight and have enjoyed every time I've drank it.
