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.

spilledpint (345) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 9, 2013
12 oz. bottle from Trader Joeís Chapel Hill Iíll preface by saying this is almost certainly a bad can. Iíve never had this before but thereís 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 doesnít 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 thatís the case because this is not at all reminiscent of a Wit. Iíve never had their beer before so hopefully thatís the case. But this was just way off.

Can shared by rondphoto. Pours a clear gold with a white head. The aroma is rubbery, brushy, and burnt. Taste is sweet and rubbery. Lighter body. Low carbonation.

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. Itís 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 donít like craft beer, itís because theyíve been exposed to things like this.

12 oz can from NF14 - this tastes smoky. I thought I was drinking a palate cleanser. Wheaty for sure.

b3shine (5304) - 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.

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.

Slightly hazy medium amber with a solid rim head and dots of lace. Taste is malt, but it is also light spices and papaya and apples, before adding light bitters to finish. So light it loses character, making it drinkable, but not exactly enjoyable.

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 (781) - 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

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.
