COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This intensely sour "wild ale" recalls the earliest rustic beers crafted centuries ago before brewers had an understanding of controlled fermentation. Brewed with the addition of lemon verbena, as well as lactobacillus and brettanomyces. Telegraph Reserve Wheat is an all-together different beast from modern beer. Not for the faint of heart, this special brew is available in extremely limited quantities.

Papsoe (25076) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2011
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of wavers1. Pours a clear pale yellow with a lively white head leaving a little lacework. Dry tartness in the nose - and coriander?? Light body, dry indeed, a little fruity but again these strange perfumy coriander notes - oh I see, its gonna be the lemon verbana, whatever that is. Ends dry but not overly tart. Refreshing, but not really to style. 290311

brokensail (12010) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 11, 2010
A: The pour is a hazy yellow/light gold color with a nice white foam. S: A tart lemon scent to go along with the slightly sweet wheat aroma. Not terribly "complex". T: Mostly tart (lots of lemon), there is a bit of sweetness from the wheat in there at some points. Although the primary taste sensation is tartness, its not as sour as I would like. M: Light bodied, highly carbonated, and crisp. D: Very drinkable, although not the most interesting or complex sour ale, its still nice to drink.
