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.

Citrus, woody, smoke. A good Belgian style beer that has good flavor and pleasing mouth feel. I also like to swirl the can and get some of the yeasty remants.

KajII (777) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUN 11, 2013
12oz Can. The pour was a slightly cloudy golden orange with an average (1-2 finger) white fizzy head that diminished steadily, down to a light film with a small collar that did last throughout and had fair drippy lacing. The aroma was of a light grain malt and a musty Belgian yeast with notes of citrus (orange and lemon), coriander and a mild scent of wet grass. The taste was lightly sweet and rather citrusy from the start, becoming quite yeasty with a tart lemony finish. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow, with a lingering citrus wheat taste left behind. Mouthfeel was just a tad past light in body with a mildly dry texture and a carbonation that was just a bit past soft in intensity. Overall this was a smooth, tasty and very refreshing Witbier that possessed a unique lingering tartness at the finish. This would definitely make a great summer session brew... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

spilledpint (341) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 9, 2013
12 oz. bottle from Trader Joe’s Chapel Hill I’ll preface by saying this is almost certainly a bad can. I’ve never had this before but there’s no way this would be rated as respectably if it were this far off. Ar: Weird. Sort of smells like rusty fishing lures after a trip to the beach. Ap: Pours a slightly hazy light orange-amber. Fizzy white head dissipates almost immediately and doesn’t leave much lace. T: Completely dominated by a really strange, almost rust-like flavor. P: Light carbonation, medium body. O: Not sure if this is a bad can or what...I suspect that’s the case because this is not at all reminiscent of a Wit. I’ve never had their beer before so hopefully that’s the case. But this was just way off.

Purchased at Whole Foods Market Cary. Drank it out of a can, so Appearance rating is a bit disingenuous. Sitting on the back porch, watching my daughter play on the first day of the year that could be categorized as "hot" and it went down pretty darn well.

Shared 12oz can, thanks to Jay. Mostly hazy golden - orange color. Little off-white head. Nice zesty citrus peel nose. Decent few dots of lace. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Clean, dry finish. Lemon, zesty, citrus peel aromas, coriander, light spice. Light banana. Sweet taste. OK wit.

radarsock (882) - Vermont, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Can, consumed with Drsilverworm at his flat in Cincy. It is a musty orange colored wit with an off--tooth-white ring rimming the glass. Nosed sour grass, wheat bread, white grapes and Belgian yeast. Tasted the same. I didn’t think it had very much complexity.

has a nice aroma out of the can with little hop aroma and a sweet taste. The head doesn’t last long but the flavor is sweet and smooth. Very easy to drink .

maxwelldeux (3452) - Everett, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Pours a cloudy light golden color with almost no head. The little aroma I do get smells metallic and almost skunky. In contrast, the flavor is floral and citrusy, being light on the palate.
