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.

I had this on cask on Bull McCabe’s last night, though it was slightly different--brewed or added with blueberries. Assuming it was a one-off, I’ll just rate it here. Not as "white" as most wits; more of a hazy golden orange pour with thin white head that was to be expected from the cask. Wheat, subtle spices for the style, which was nice (orange peel, coriander). Thin palate and easy to drink. The blueberry didn’t show through strong at all. More the nice floral notes than a fruit bomb. Pretty tasty. Looking forward to drinking more of the regular batch, maybe this summer.

(Draught) Pours a lightly hazy yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of wheat, grass, coriander, and orange peel. Flavor of wheat, orange peel, and toasted grain.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - AUG 25, 2008
Draft at Watts. Hazy orange/yellow color with a small white head. Nose of biscuits, yeast, and spice. Nice crisp flavors and well balanced, with a solid wheat mouthfeel. This is a delicious session wheat beer, and a nicely done Belgian representation.

OldGrowth (2484) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 11, 2008
Pint @ MacGregors. Good aroma, coriander & citrus, orange mainly, little lime. toasted grain, wheat. Hazed orangy gold color, good head, ok lace. Spiced sweet flavor, like aroma, favors the sweet side. medium body, creamy smooth mouthfeel, spicy finish. Very nice brew, really enjoyed it.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 26, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2012 Draft at Watts Grocery, Durham. Looks more like an APA, but it’s well carbonated, decent head. The nose is about what you’d expect from an American take on the style, very mildly spicy with some fruit notes in there. More hops in the beer than anything else, though you still get some decent flavors. Very typical but not unenjoyable.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 12, 2008
Hazy yellow beer with a big fluffy head. Aroma is on the yeasty side of the wit spectrum without any noticeable coriander. Some citrus. A touch of orange peel comes out in the flavor. Thin bodied. Manages to have a dense mouthfeel while still feeling light.

Sampled at the WBF in Raleigh. Pours a pale yellow white with a frothy white head. Doesn’t have any apparent haze. The nose is sweet, spicy, some orange, nice aroma. The flavor has a lot of sweet orange, a bit grainy, watery, no carbonation, a bit sweet. Flavor not spicy.

Tasted at Brewers Prenstation at Raleigh WBF. Appearance was slightly cloudy appropriate for its style. The beer had a slight fruit taste with a decent amount of spice. The body was light a beer you could easily enjoy on a summer day.

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
