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: E’pluche-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.

August 17th, 2012 - Midnight Sun Brewing Company’s lasciviously named Panty Peeler might be the "beer of trip" up to Alaska. We picked it up in a small liquor store somewhere in Sitka, mostly on a lark. As tourists are "curio lust" was in full swing - our instincts demanded we by some kind of tasteless crap to commemorate the adventure to the tamest part of the untamed Alaskan wilderness. For me, the Panty Peeler fit the bill perfectly. The label and name were worth a boyish chortle and a guffaw, and it promised to be more enjoyable than a t-shirt covered in crude innuendo and half-hearted sexual puns. But the real treat was that the beer inside wasn’t merely satisfactory, or even good. It was EXCELLENT. The nose has a twangy, funky fresh banana note, coupled with e Brettanomyces twang that resonates like a loud, plucked banjo string in a silent room. Clove creeps into the nose as well, though it trips itself up as it immerses deeper into the yeasty funk of this brew’s bouquet. On the tongue this beer is predominantly sudsy, and maybe even excessively so, but eventually the flavor musters the courage to step forward and express itself. When it does, there’s lots of light orange and lemon flavors, decorated with a cherry sweetness, and the light tart tang of meringue. The body is light (reasonably so), demonstrating a good balance between mouthfeel and flavors. With a little time and patience, the carbonation is tempered, revealing a delicately balanced brew that once again shows off Alaskan proficiency in lighter brews.

Pours a hazy, barely transparent dark apricot. Strong, fruity aroma has a good yeasty underpinning. Bold, mainly fruity flavor has notes of pear, apricot and banana. Texture is firm and strongly fizzy, and leaves a fruity finish. Peel yer panties for this one!

HMOG 2014. Thought someone said this had several years on it. Aged very nicely then. Light hazed orange pour. Sweet white grape, juicy, hints of fruity easters, citrus. Bits of booze splashy. Very nice triple.

3.98/5 rDev +2.1% look: 4 smell: 3.75 taste: 4 feel: 4.25 overall: 4 Pours a beautiful hazed orange color with a cantalope melon hue. Just wonderful to look at. Not a whole lot of lace from my lazy pour and it fell fast to a thin ring. Nose is vivacious and has plenty of exotic tropical fruit. Sweet and juicy. There’s a touch of malt that hints at bread and offers just a light sweetness on the nose. No alcohol on the nose, but a nice bit of earthy coriander. The scent of orange is deep within the beer and is an all around orange fruitiness.

Taste is wonderful. This beer offers a tremendous fruit sweetness with lush and heady tropical fruits and an all around orange flavor too. The malt suggests bread but does not become too heavy or too bready. Wonderful mouthfeel on this that is due to that malt. The coriander is earthy and lends a depth. There is a nice yeast dryness that takes the mid palate just as you are begining to swoon from all that wild tropical flavor. Then it finishes with a sweet and warming alcohol that has a spice and pepper of it’s own. A lingering fruity aftertaste.

This beer is a delight!
