Midnight Sun Panty Peeler Tripel
From Midnight Sun Brewing – Free spirited Panty Peeler 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.
Midnight Sun Brewing – Panty Peeler Tripel – 22 oz. bottle poured into a goblet – 8.5% abv. Available in Alaska and Oregon only.
Appearance: Pours a vibrant amber gold with a nice gathering of white froth at the top.
Aroma: Cloves, Belgian yeast, flowers, orange, grapefruit and maybe even cranberry.
Taste: Cloves, coriander, bitter Euro hops, funky Tripel Belgian yeast. Finishes spicy and bitter.
Mouthfeel: Very fizzy and medium bodied. Not too syrupy.
Overall: I like the extra goodness outside of the Tripel yeast. I’ve had so many beers in this style that have been similar, this has a nice layer of citrus and berry twang to it.

The Panty Peeler is one excellent beer. Made in Anchorage and distributed to the local spots for a reasonable price. The Midnight Sun has recently relocated to a larger space and can now increase their output of their excellent beers of all styles.
