A classic, unfiltered Belgian-style white ale brewed with coriander, orange peel, and locally grown chamomile flowers. It is called "white ale" because of the pale, cloudy color. A light aroma of orange and a zesty mouthfeel ensure that Telegraph White Ale is the perfect accompaniment to long summer days and fresh, flavorful farmer's market cuisine.

Acidic, tangerine, fresh, floral, back end loaded. Medium body, small head for a Belgium style, yeasty aroma. Went real well with stir fry and egg rolls. Not as light as some Belgium ales, very solid though.

arminjewell (7273) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of white fruit, orange, some slight banana into lots of milky yeast, touch of biscuit, some vanilla, hint of clove. Taste was a mix of clove, coriander, white grape into some milky yeast, bread, some slight orange, finishing sweet.

Bottle pour. Hazy blonde with small white head. Wheat, light orange, and banana aroma. Light to medium body. Wheat, orange, coriander taste. Very light and easy to drink. A little disappointing as it is tasty, but not overly flavorful.

"Man, Iím a sucker for chamomile. It also doesnít hurt that this has an ever so slight tartness to it as well, making it stand out from others in the same style. The only flaw was the over-carbonated mouthfeel, but unfortunately it took away from the overall enjoyment of this otherwise good beer."

Taster at the brewery. Once upon a time this was one of my favorite beer, but that was a long time ago! Pours a hazy blonde. Cracker nose, very dry, ever so slightly tart. Finish is a bit abrupt.

blklab2007 (2062) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle poured a golden color with a thin coating of white head. Aroma has wheat, banana yeast, and grass. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation average. Flavor is a clean white ale, clover, yeast, and wheat.

750, corked. Thanks d! Pours a clear pale gold with little white head. Nice sweet orange and clove and lemon nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Nice tangy citric mid palate with mild clovey peppery overtones. Mild finish. No flaws to speak of.

It's light in color, but missing the big traditional Belgian spice. Moderately sweet, but the yeast falls flat and boring. Not the even close to the best wit brewed in tone the USA..

ALittleYeast (5) - Washington, USA - FEB 22, 2014 does not count
Aroma yields typical citrus, coriander. Appearance is pale golden with some haze, seems right for this style, with moderate head. Taste and palate were the let-downs: just not much depth or complexity. Light body with average carbonation. Itís a light style, but i just wanted more taste than i got, with little spiciness. I was underwhelmed.
