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.

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. It’s a light style, but i just wanted more taste than i got, with little spiciness. I was underwhelmed.

Pours a thin head on a clear light straw body. Aroma is mild and floral. Taste is mild, but has a nice sweetness. Texture is light. Easy drinking.

Nice hoppy nose when fresh. Mild Belgian yeast flavor with coriander and orange peel. Belgium meets California. A nice hoppy Wit is perfect for a hot summer day.

One of the best White Ales I’ve had. Smooth, full, big orange notes, giant esters, and long finish. Beautiful beer!

arminjewell (9262) - East Lansing, Michigan, 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.
