COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
CollaBEERation "Trinity Ale" now on tap. Equal parts of Fullsteam, Triangle Brewery and Bull City Burger and Brewery in one beer. To celebrate NC Craft Beer Month, we joined hops, malts and forces to create a one-off beer for craft beer lovers. A pale amber color with hints of bronze and a rocky white head from the NC rye and wheat malts, this medium bodied beer packs a punch with over 6% ABV and tangy hop bitterness on the finish. This beer was filtered and then dry-hopped with Northern Brewer and Fuggles hops, plus a hint of Durham’s Rosemary bushes at the corner of Mangum and Parrish to make certain we have included Durham in every glass. We are donating $1 from every pint sold to a local Durham charity. This beer is sold only by the pint for $5 including tax. Sorry, no growlers or pitchers. VERY LIMITED at all three breweries. Hops: Northern Brewer, Nugget, Goldings.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 15, 2013
Draft at Fullsteam. Pours a amber-gold with a small white head. Nose of rye, easygoing hops, some interesting yeast (maybe Triangle’s contribution?), some light ginger and basil/rosemary notes. Taste shows a bit more of the latter. I like the herbal notes. An interesting and refreshing collaboration.

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 9, 2013
Tap at BCBB. Orange golden with small white head, little lace. Nose is spicey, ginger, light rye, light fruits. Flavor is similar, more spice, coriander, rosemary, ginger.

emacgee (4136) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 8, 2013
Pours soft pale golden amber with a tight sandstone tan head. Nose is lightly sweet (in a good way) and herbal with a touch of citrus and rosemary. Rosemary comes through at the front of the mouth with a very light perceptual sweetness. Light acidity on the finish and a touch of earthy bread. Light medium body with a round palate and dry finish.

maxwelldeux (3790) - Everett, Washington, USA - APR 7, 2013
Draught. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate white head. Nose is quite spicy from the rosemary, as it really dominates both the taste and smell. Taste is a little sweet, and reminds me a little bit of Christmas, actually. Not a huge fan of it.
