COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Triangle Belgian- Style Lambic is a crisp and tart refreshing beer that draws its flavor from the unique fermentation character imparted by the yeast in the primary fermentation. The result is a flavor rich in fruitiness while the yeast fermentation also creates a sourness on the sides of the palate, reminiscent of a traditional lambic style. That sourness, is combined with a subtle cereal note from the malted wheat and is perfect for our hot Carolina days. 6.8%abv. 2011 Silver Medal at the Carolina Championship of Beer!

Sampled at Hickory Hops 2014. Is...is this supposed to smell like Bleu Cheese? I mean, it tastes basically OK, but that aroma is weird.

Draft at bottlemixx. Overall a neutral tasting beer. Balanced and not too tart. A good introductory lambic of the tart not sweet kind. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Yellowish orange pour with decent sized head, little to no lacing. As stated before, this is NOT a lambic, more a weak sour. Aroma of citrus, some malty breads and hint of pickles. Flavor of slightly buttery lemon juice, pickle juice, and hint of malts in the mouthfeel. Did not enjoy this.

Draft. Hazy dark gold pour with a white head, some retention/lace. Aroma is tart, lemon, citrus, wheat. Taste is tart, sweet, lightly sour, lemon, dust, wheat. Palate is soft, slick, tart finish. Definitely not lambic, but not bad.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 10, 2012
On tap at Ridgewood Wine and Beer, Raleigh. Pour the color of pink grapefruit almost, cloudy and vigorous looking. Tart nose but not quite the acetic blast of a true lambic. Tastes a bit malty, perhaps even gamey in places, with a mild squirt of lemon perhaps making it some wild ale varietal. Bright and tasty beer I suppose, but not altogether close to the style category.

OldGrowth (2758) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - SEP 12, 2012
Pint at Tylers Apex. Sweet and sour aroma. Tart yeasty scent with a sweet streak. Tad hazed brownish orange color. No head or lace. Sweet sour flavor. Light body, smooth mouthfeel, tart finish, its good, drinks easy.

*Not a lambic. So, this is basically a Brett fermented version of the Golden Ale (with some adustments) and i.e. not a lambic. That being said let’s look at what it is. Soft cloudy amber pour with a weak head. Kind of muddy. Much too much alcohol. Little to no acidity, tartness maybe, but no acidity. Some funk to it. Kind of muddled. Meh.

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Tap at Broad Street with Bob and the birthday girl (21!! Yay! ), Adrienne. Got a biggie size Danish pour of this ( half pint). Hazy golden with a minimal white head. Nose is lemon, wheat, light caramel, tart. Flavor is okay, super young, very thin and one dimensional. Lemony and wheaty, more similar to a watery Berliner weisse.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Draft pour from Broad Street Cafe. Hazy deep bright gold pour with a lively white head. Nose of the same sweetness and yeast characteristic of their Belgian Golden. A bit of lemon/citrus added to the nose as well. Tastes close to their (sweet) golden as well, but with added lightly tart notes. Wouldn’t quite call it sour. Pretty refreshing, but overly sweet.
