COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our interpretation of a traditional Belgian wheat beer, Triangle White Ale is unique and truly refreshing. The style gets its name from the white, slightly cloudy appearance of this unfiltered wheat ale. Brewed with a generous amount of white and red wheat that is grown locally in Scotland County, NC, and our own special blend of organic spices, makes Triangle White Ale complex in flavor without being overpowering or cloying. Overall, it is a beer that is light, fruity and very drinkable during a hot summer day. 5% abv. Silver Medal winner at the 2010 Carolina Championship of Beer.

Drake (8616) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 27, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2012 Sampled in the presentation tent at WBF Raleigh. This beer made its first public appearance at the festival. 4/26/08. Pale yellow color with a slight haze. Yeast and citrus aroma. Assertive taste of stone fruit with a slight hint of spice. Very smooth. 6/4/7/4/16

Rerate 3/12/11. 12 ounce can. Pours a very hazy yellow orange color with a medium sized frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of citrus, bread, caramel and spice. The taste is wheat, citrus, spice, caramel, toasted notes and a bit of a tropical note. Fairly dry for a witbier. Medium bodied, slightly assertive carbonation. Still a nice beer three years later. 7/3/8/4/15

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 27, 2011
12oz can: Pours a cloudy deep golden with a spotty-lacing froth of white head. Has a tart lemon citrus nose with a touch of funky cheese. Starts with average fullness and some mild sweetness along with some grainy malty notes and lots of lemon acidity and light clove before a more sour, slightly funky finish. Seems infected, which is not what I’m normally looking for in a witbier.

phaleslu (6658) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2014
12 oz. can shared by rondphoto - thanks, Ron! Pours a totally clear, bright gold on the paler end of the spectrum. The initial aroma is hockey puck. It’s a weird, rubbery, chemical, somewhat smoked wheat thing. So weird. Then the flavor has some tart lemon, straw, and earth to go along with the rubber, and some dry aged cheese, like a mizithra or something. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, tart mouthfeel. This is so weird. Belgian white? Oof. When people say they don’t like craft beer, it’s because they’ve been exposed to things like this.

12 oz can shared by rondphoto. Pours a clear golden/light amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have a hint of sweet candi sugar, yeast, the flavor goes completely off and gets burnt rubber, spices, very strange.

b3shine (5707) - Indiana, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Can to taster at NatiFest. Looks solid; a transparent golden orange with white head that steadily dissipates into thin lacing. Smells strange; like a mix of Belgian and lager yeast. A bit of citrus too. Tastes like it smells, but a little bitter, and what seems like a bit of smoke and rubber. Below average on the palate. Not my thing.

Suttree (5212) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Brewgrass 2010. Pretty standard white ale, not that there is anything wrong with that. Cloudy and pale, with a nice notes of coriander and orange. Flavor is a little sweeter than I was expecting, with orange juice and spices. Tasty and quaffable.
