22oz bomber: This one pours with a HUGE off white head. It does linger for awhile. The color is very hazy orange-tinged dark golden hue. This one has a very nice aroma. Some spice, orange, banana and yeastiness. Very smooth taste. Flavors are very typical of a good tripel. A slight touch of alcohol in the finish, with maybe even a twinge of pineapple. A very nice rendition of the style.

Bottled second week of June, presumably in 2006. Been beckoning me for a while now, and I thank msubulldog25 for the generosity!

Huge release of gasses as the cap comes off, so a big sizzling head is no surprise. The bubbles number in the zillions, and the head becomes soft and creamy in no time. Color is a sunny toasted golden with amazing clarity. No chunks or floaters here.

Aroma is magnificent, if favoring the fruity side. Definite banana and apple esters, but all is not totally bright, as there's a dirty element swinging in the background, probably the combined efforts of yeast and alcohol.

Flavor is incredibly solid and well-balanced, with apple, banana and white grape supercharged by funky yeast and candylike maltiness. Finish is a little sticky, and here the stranger aspects of the flavor take hold. Not so bright and fruity anymore, is it? Don't even know how to describe the finish. Definitely bitter, definitely a little hot, definitely like spicy rotting fruit.

Mouthfeel achieves excellent balance between nippy carbonation and smooth creaminess.

A unique yet "true" tripel...no doubt what style it is, but it also sticks its neck out a bit. Have to drop the drinkability rating slightly, what with the high alcohol and unusual finish, which is slightly overbearing if you're doing this whole bomber alone. No big complaints, though...I'll work through this big bottle somehow...

A 650 mL bottle served in a Troegenator seidel.

A: The tripel pours with a huge head, coming in at 3 fingers in size. The color itself is a hazy darker yellow, almost orange, tone.

S: The ale has a spicy aroma, with coriander, honey and a yeasty funkiness leading the way.

T: The tripel has a very sweet taste that immediately registers with the tastebuds. The flavor is honey-like malts, concentrated in its intensity. There is also a very apparent coriander pepper flavor that is nicely accentuated by a dry anise character and some curacao.

M: The mouthfeel is dominated by the spice profile and it doesn't disappoint. The coriander is pleasant and really stands out.

D: A well-made tripel, this beer provides a requisite spice profile with a nice increase in the coriander. The beer is worth a look just in case it lives up to its name, 'Panty Peeler'.

2001 version. $1.99, you heard it here...
Sampled in an Ommegang chalice.

A: After a vigorous pour the two finger head dissipates quite slowly. Frothy at first before it bubbles down. A murky dark grapefruit color--almost rust color. Excellent retention.
S: Apple cider notes with belgian notes behind. Slight pear aroma also. Nice yeastyness with a swirl. Apple notes are a bit too strong.
T/M: Apple notes with a yeastyness too them. A bit too carbonated--burps galore. Thin with a slight hop presence in the finish. The "normal" yeasty belgian flavors are noticeable in the aftertaste.
D: Possibly a bit to appleish for me. Not many flavors in there--they're all sort of muddied together. Carbonation was also a bit to much. It is 5 years old so...I can't complain that much. Not bad for the age...

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden color with a frothy light head that leaves dancing shards of lace around the chalice

Smell: Funky melange of coriander, clove, bitter orange peel and yeast

Taste: Kicks off the culottes with a mirror of the aroma - yeasty and spicy; after the swallow, the green apple and bitter orange flavors drive in to join the fray; unfortunate, harsh finish detracts and lingers in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Light bodied and fizzy - appropriate to the style

Drinkability: Very interesting - brew it like a tripel and spice it like a wit

Thanks, msubulldog25, for the opportunity

Tried this beer at a BA Gathering in Portland 23 Sept, 2006. Thanks to BA "MrNuggets" for providing the beer - also for the translation of "epluche-culotte" = "to strip one's clothes off", or thereabouts... Fortunately, there was none of that happening at our gathering...

A: Warm, clear golden Tripel with a sizable fluffy white head and gentle lacing.

S: Hefty fruit (pear, apple, orange peel) sweetness with substantial spiciness (zesty cinnamon & cloves) and esters of banana. Delicious smell, especially if paired with dessert. Discernable Belgian-ish yeast.

T: Similar notes as in the smell. Ripe sweet/tart fruit, a jolt of spice, some citrus zest and little bitterness.

M: Medium-bodied and with a bit of a syrupy mouthfeel. There is some lingering alcohol warth in the aftertaste to go along with the spices and esters.

D: A very enjoyable Tripel, one of the nicest US-made versions I've tried. Strong but within the style's range; not as well-masked as some "sneakier" Tripels that are so drinkable one winds up hammered almost without realizing it. Recommended - enjoy responsibly!

Golden color. Lightly hoppy aroma, which remains very fruity and yeasty, giving a nice blend of apples ,oranges, and pears, along with a touch of honey covered Belgian malts. Flavor is heavily sweet, overly so, but still full of rich toffee and caramel malt flavors. Full of alcohol, light fruits, light yeast, combined with a fairly watery texture. A nice, straightforward Tripel.

Light copper in appearance with a nice head that is supported by very active carbonation...very inviting.
Smell is a very nice blend of fruit, alcohol and spice.

Taste is a very unusual blend,,,malt...alcohol...spice...that blends together nicely.

Mouthfeel is a follow up of the taste. It satrts with some maltly, full bodied oily aspects but then morphs into dry, alcohol and tart aspects...very interesting.

Very drinkable for a 9.0 abv...A different tyype of offering that is deinitely worth a try.

Appearence: Pours a hazy orange copper with a huge white head that lingers forever. Nice amounts of carbonation.

Smell: The smell is pretty alcoholic, but decently balanced by citrus. floral, and fruity notes. Spiced, with clove and cinnamon notes, as well as a nice amount of banana.

Taste and Mouthfeel: A very unique taste for a tripel. The spicy notes that hit you're tounge first are mainly from the alcohol, but are balanced out by cinnamon and clove type notes. It eventually becomes a fruity mix, leaving banana notes in the mouth when swallowed. The mouthfeel is dry, but medium-bodied.

Drinkability and Overall: Another winner from Midnight Sun. Arctic Devil is one of my all time favorites, and this one, while not as good, is a killer tripel. It seems like damn near every American brewer does a tripel, as though it's the new IPA or something, and not too often do you find one as stunning and unique as this. Highly, highly recommended.

Bottled second Week of December, Sampled October 2005
This beer is highly carbonated, it shows no respect and after pouring with a four finger thick, tan head promptly oozes over the top of my glass. The beer is a hazy orangish light amber color. The aroma is sharp, spicy and herbal, when I go in for a deeper smell, I get notes of higher alcohols, and what seems like a bit of Brett; lightly musty, horse blanket, and even some barnyard character. The head on this just won't quite, I think this might be infected, though if it is it might work with this style of beer.

The taste is spritzy and quite sweet up front with notes of orange peel. The finish is funky with a cotton mouth quality to it, notes of dandelion, ginger, hint of cardamom, some clove, lemons, ripe cheese, and a musty slightly moldy note. This beer is quite interesting, I am pretty sure that the Brett character was not intended by the brewer, but, as in the case of Fantome, it works here. The funky note is in the background, and adds to the complexity of the beer. Though this is starting to be a pattern with the beers I have had from here recently.

Appearance and Presentation – 22 oz bomber from Marty’s dated 5th week of July, but without a year noted. I am drinking this out of my over-sized wine glass. It has a deep cloudy, golden color with cyclonic carbonation and a billowy, creamy white head that has good retention and leaves nice lacing.

Smell – A bit of spicy alcohol mixes with coriander in the nose. There is also a hint of grapes or wine. It’s certainly a potent aroma. I enjoy in the smell of alcohol here, many tripels lack this component.

Taste – The fusel alcohol is a bit too much for me here at first, but as I drink more it really grows on me. Similar to the smell, the zesty coriander is a main player and there is a significant winey character. In addition a citrus component that was not present in the smell reveals itself here. Good complex mixture of flavors, well done.

Mouthfeel – Medium mouthfeel with carbonation that is just over the top in my judgment.

Drinkability and Notes – Epluche-culotte is a solid tripel, but I would put it a notch bellow my favorites in the style. The alcohol flavor really gives the beer personality, but it also makes it laborious to drink. I am unsure if the wine character was in the beer from the start or if it is a factor of age and oxidation, Marty’s often has some old beer and this one has no year marked on it. This was my first beer from Midnight Sun, and if this is any indication I will enjoy the La Maitresse Du Moine that is in my fridge now.

Sparkling, bright, ripe apricot with a furious wave of bubbles rushing up to an orange-tinted ivory head. A head that is epic in size, if ultimately too soft and too unsticky to deposit much lace. The appearance is as Belgian-like as any non-Belgian beer that I've ever seen. I have no doubt that the ABV is doing its part to dampen head and lace formation. Even so, it's a good look.

The nose contains all of the requisite style elements. The main thrust is the classic triad of fruit, spice and alcohol: peaches and oranges that have been macerated in sugar syrup and in their respective fruit brandies, with a sprinkling of clove and white pepper for good measure. It could stand to be a bit more aromatic, but it's a wonderful nose all the same.

Now we're talkin'. Epluche-culotte has a huge amount of aggressive flavor that grabs the taste buds and makes them beg for mercy. It's still peachy and is now apricoty and appley as well. The spices have more free rein on the palate than they did in the nose, but they're still exceptionally well-integrated with the fruitiness.

The malt presence is spot-on... as is the degree of hoppiness... as is the sweet-bitter interplay... as is the fruit-spice interplay. This beer is exceptionally well-balanced in all sorts of ways. The finish is long and lingering with a modest amount of mouthcoating born of a similarily modest candi sugar load.

The body is medium in a general sense with a smooth, slick, lively mouthfeel that is a study in contrasts. Sugar creates the vicosity and carbonation keeps things from getting too serious. Alcohol is noticeable, but is a welcome contributor to a fabulous flavor profile.

Epluche-culotte means, literally, 'peeled undergarments'. Now, if I understand the deviant minds at Midnight Sun Brewing, and I think that I do since, as they say, it takes one to know one, what I believe they're getting at is that if your wife/girlfriend drinks this entire bottle of fine, high-ABV ale, complete with an au naturel woman riding a reindeer on the label, then you will, in short order, find that you'll be able to epluche her culottes without any difficulty whatsoever (assuming that she wears any of course), or if you're really lucky, you'll be treated to a floorshow and she'll do the honors herself. Or something like that.

If I didn't know better, I'd swear this Belgian-Style Ale came from Belgium itself. I'm not an expert by any means, but it seems to me to be a faithful reproduction of the tripel style and a delicious one at that. E-to-the-C is very good beer and further cements the notion in my mind that Midnight Sun knows what the hell they're doing.

Thanks to timmcd64 for getting me this one from Alaska!

Appearance: WOW, an incredibly thick and creamy (off)white head with amazing retention (it’s just not going away)!! The color is a hazy amber with orange and golden hues. The liquid itself has a fairly thin appearance (it slides easily up and down the sides of the glass). But, dammit, the head on this one is unbelievable!!

Aroma: A sweet, fruity malt aroma, with a noticeable whiff of alcohol. The overall aroma is pretty winey and citrusy.

Taste and Mouthfeel: Very citrusy and yeasty, with a complex and fruity malt character. There are variety subtle tastes including banana, clove, citrusy orange peel, as well as something else I can’t put my finger on (vanilla, maybe). A noticable alcohol bite too. I can detect some very faint hop bitterness in the finish, though it is eclipsed by the sour citrus flavors. The mouthfeel is light to medium-bodied, but with surprisingly mellow carbonation (I expected carbonated fireworks judging from the head).

It case I haven’t made it clear, the head on this brew is incredible. But the beer is quite good all-around. The sour citrus flavors balance nicely with the sweet, fruity malt flavors. If you like triples, you really can’t afford to miss this one. The only reason this beer isn't more drinkable is because of the alcohol content. Highly recommended.

Oh wow. I'd been saving this bottle for awhile after having picked it up in Anchorage and this beer does not dissapoint. Pours a bright golden color but still clear. Solid head brings in a bouquet of aromas. I can faintly smell the alcohol, but it's not unpleasant balanced with a fruity, spicy overtone.

The spiciness is more apparent once actually tasted complimenting the overall complexity. Lingers for at least a few moments. Comfortable in the mouth and no problems drinking at a relaxed pace.

Pours gold/light orange with a full off white head.
Enticing Belgian aromatics and light spicing.
Hints of orange,clove,bubblegum.
Nice effervesence enhances the nose.
Dryish and mineral-like on the pallet-(not sure how old this bottle was).
Spritzy and somewhat bitter,lacking the soft, smoothness of the great trippels.
Yeasty character is minimal,cleanish for a Belgian,and alcohol well hidden.
Hints of spice well done, orange, maybe coriander, with a hint of cherries.
Not sure if this baby was bottle conditioned, maybe if it was, it would have stood the test of time better.

Hazy gold to copper color with a thick dense white head that settles quickly. Not really much lace to speak of. The nose has a lot of citrus with lemon and orange peels. There’s a definite bread dough character there too. A little bit of candy sweetness. The taste has a candy sweetness up front with more of the orange character. There is also granny smith apples, a little pear character. Mild spiciness, just a hint of clove in the beer. Slick mouth feel. Nice drinakbility

Appearance: Dark orange, with light, bubbly head.

Smell: Vinious, maybe my sample was getting a little old. Physallis, a little balsamic twang and some peach gives this a very "fresh" feeling that I enjoyed.

Taste: Honey sweet, with a powerful alcohol feel that dries out your mouth. Maybe a bit too carbonated for the style, but it helped balance out the aridity somewhat.

An interesting tripel, even if I'm not too fond of the style in itself.

Beautiful amber honey-amber gold in hue. Holy shit does this beer look awesome when it is backlit. I can’t stop staring at the gorgeous liquid. There is tons of animation racing towards the talkative white head. At the apex the foam was two-fingers in height, there is excellent head retention, it faded quickly to one finger and that finger just sat there. Fantastic. Subsequent lacing was spotty and it clung poorly. Still, the appearance is fantastic, the head retention was awesome and the color was pure eye-candy. If this beer left lace it would have been beer pornography. The first few sniffs supplied ample layers of fruit, melons and strawberries with a smattering of apples and peaches. Once my olfactory adjusted I detected strong notes of bubblegum with hints of cloves and pepper. There are kisses of cookie in the middle. Spiced apples at the finish. I can’t smell the alcohol. For a Trippel there isn’t much rawness to it, it is working well in this beer. While it is not funky, it is well rounded. I wish the potency were louder; still, it was plenty eloquent. Inviting. Where did all that heat come from? The nose gave no indication of alcohol or rawness. The palate has both. Wow. My goodness, there are tons of tropical fruit flavors: melons, guava, papaya, bananas, oranges, and so much more. Vanilla with hints of leather. The clove flavors are soft and very secondary. The malt base is fairly sweet, not very grainy; in fact it is pretty neutral. It works though as other flavors as allowed to shine. The hops supply a fantastic bitter, citrusy bite and the finish and this cuts the overall sweetness well. This Trippel is a little too clean but the overall flavor complexity makes up for that. This beer is excellent; there is no two ways about it. Give me a bottle, a glass, a plate of cheese and fruit and I will go to town! I am quite impressed with this beer. I see why this beer is a winter seasonal as it warms the belly and melts the brain! With that said, the raw alcohol flavors are minimal. Impressive. Medium/medium full in body, the mouthfeel is fairly hearty, the carbonation is moderate, it could be a bit livelier but that is just my personal preference. Relaxing, which I suppose is more appropriate for a beer of this power. Excellent mouthfeel. I bought three beers from Midnight Sun; this is the best of the bunch – by far! This beer is very impressive. Supremely drinkable, I wish I had more. Seek this beer out if you like Belgians and specifically tripels. Purchased on-line from Liquid Solutions.

I wasn't paying very good attention to my pour and created quite a bit of head. I let it go down, and let the beer breathe, which did a lot for the flavor. It was a light brown-orange in color. The aroma was of slight brown sugar and hints of rubbing alcohol. The flavor of the beer comes with a strong knock in the head of the alcohol content. After the initial shock, the brown sugar became apparent on the tongue. Spices also came through: nutmeg, cinnamon, and something a little more potent I cannot quite place. The mouthfeel and finish were at first quite pleasing, but halfway through the bottle it switch to a very dry finish, I think my tongue got was tiring of the beer.

Whew! Explodes into the Duvel tulip glass with a thunderous, off-white, rocky head. Lots of bubbly going on. Body is golden mandarin with some suspended sediment. Big aromas coming from the big, frothy head. Sweet and fruity. Severely honey-dipped tropical fruits; ambrosia-like. Light spice and coriander, a hint of pepper, and some yeast. I like that it's not too alcoholic or medicinal on the nose. Makes me want to lap it up! Very lively mouthfeel up front; almost Pop Rocks-ish. It certainly woke up my tongue. Sweet, candy/honey over tropical fruit concentrate (bananas, pears, mangos, it's like a tropical farmer's market). Sweetness grows mid-palate, but doesn't get out of control, thanks to a spicy, peppery dryness that cuts in just before the finish. Bitter banana and yeast blend with a surge of warming alcohol in the finish, along with the steal-the-show tropical fruit malts. Very nicely avoids being cloying. Is this the best domestic Tripel I've had? Why yes it is. That is, if you count Alaska as "domestic." Haha, seriously though, give me another bomber...

22 oz. bottle cellared since 2003. Clear honey orange hue with a white head. Spicy sweet honey and blackpepper smell. Medium bodied with a lively, bubbly yet rich mouthfeel. Taste is a rich honey butter,bready yeasty flavor. Finishes with a nice hop/alcohol tang.
A year plus time in the cellar has greatly improved the overall character of this brew. Excellent.

The body is a dark, cloudy amber with a smaller head than the Maitresse du Moines, but still sizeable. The aroma has a huge touch of lemon fruitiness with a backing load of apricots followed up by a yeasty spiciness that is just wow. The tingling touch of alcohol in the background just adds to the aroma. The flavor has a bit of toasty malt in it and is lightly sweet. The yeasty flavors flow and intermingle wonderfully to make perhaps the best Belgian tripel-style beer brewed in America. Better than even the Maitresse overall.

Pours very deep orange with golden highlights. Hug bubbles with a thcik creamy off-whote head and thin silky lace on the glass.
Aroma is spicy yeat, wheat bread and citrus tang.
falvor of orange citrus, pale malts, coriander, some wheat, candy sugar and a hint of citrusy hops.
Mouthfeel is very full and alive with tremendous effevescence. As it warms really releases the tanginess and subtle spices.
Drinkability is not typical for style with little dryness and more succulent fruit twsit but really delicious beer.

This beer poured with a cloudy orange color and a lacy covering of foam. The aroma has hints of alcohol, sweet fruit, and tangy citrus. The flavor is rich with all kinds of fruit flavors. Most notably is a peach flavor accompanied by white grape, apple, corriander, and some sweet and tart flavor. Very smooth in the mouth and wuite drinkable. If you come across it, it is well worth trying.
