Pale and refreshingly tart.Telegraph Golden Wheat is a complex ale that embodies the best of traditional,unfiltered wheat beers.With aromas of fresh citrus and delicate spices,this beer should be savored with lighter fare such as seafood or grilled chicken.And skip the slice of lemon...this is a wheat ale with a flavor that stands up on its own!

fonefan (49554) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2009
Bottle 75cl. @ Weekend of Tarts After Tasting
Unclear medium yellow orange color with a huge, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white head. Aroma is moderate malty, wheaty, sourish, grass, citrus, moderate yeasty, corriander - clove. Flavor is moderate sweet, tart and sourwith a average to long duration. Infected IMO but maybe that’s just how it is made ! Body is medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft. Hard to drink not nice, only to share with many people ;o) [20090530]

bhensonb (15345) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 4, 2009
Bottle from Ledgers Liquors. Orange tinged gold color with a fizzy white head that went poof. Aromas of citrus and grain. Medium body with fizzy carbonation. Whoa! The first flavor is barnyard. Excellent. There’s hop, grain and some florality, but this is really interesting stuff. More like a real saison than standard old American wheat ale. And at 5% this is sessionable funk!

bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 29, 2009
(750ml, bottled March 27 2008) Pours a clear yellow body with a large frothy white head. Aroma of citrus, wheat, and florals. Flavor of wheat, citrus, and coriander.

shrubber85 (11460) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 22, 2009
Bottle. Lemon peel, coriander, yeast, and wheat malt aroma. Pale yellow color with small head. Musty lemon peel, yeast, and wheat malt flavor. Dry finish. This is very witbier-like - an excellent beer.

hopscotch (11161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 30, 2008
Bottle... Clear, light yellow ale with a small, creamy, white head. The funky, breadsy nose offers notes of leather and barnyard with pear and banana esters alongside a light clove phenol. Almost medium-bodied with lazy carbonation. Moderately tart and very decently bittered. Mild sweetness with notes of citrus and biscuit. Crisp, tangy, wonderfully refreshing finish.

marcus (10333) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 22, 2011
Bottle from Beer Revolution. Pours cloudy amber with a massive off-white head and a sour wheat aroma. The flavor, too, is quite sour, and I suspect an infected batch. Way too sour and funky for a wheat beer. Having said that, it is still an interesting brew worth drinking, if just for its novelty.

sebletitje (10094) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 10, 2009
750ml bottle. Nov 08’ date. pours golden, lightly hazy, white head that seemed to melt away before my eyes. aroma was funky and tart with notes of wheat. taste, wheat, lots of carbonation, hints of hops and spices for a light vinegary palate with a skunky tart finish. This is not what I had expected, especially after it was recommended to me.

MartinT (9932) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 20, 2010
My Bottom Line:
Crisp and easy drinking, this effective Wheat Ale’s lemony edges and light tartness are perhaps not complex, but they do serve a valuable purpose.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the hazy golden.
-Green pepper subtleties are detectable; not sure if that is a bad omen or the spice combo which I find awkward .
-The pillowy effervescence and svelte mouthfeel are pleasant.
-Wheat is very apparent in the nose.

On tap at the brewery tasting room.

Bottle. Amber beer with an off-white head. Wheat, spice, and yeast aroma with some light lemon citrus. Wheat/malt flavor with yeast, light spice, and light tartness. Medium-light bodied. Wheat and malt linger with yeast and spice.
