Pours a hazy, light gold in color with a nice inch or more of frothy head. Smell is wheat, yeast and some lemon zest. Taste is more of the lemon flavor as well as some clove. This is perfect for a hot, humid spring day. There's just a hint of bitterness and some sort of citrus in the middle of each sip. Very refreshing. Very full and creamy on the mouthfeel. This is a real easy beer to drink. Quite the fact that it is gone too fast. This is a really good beer and the first that I've had from Telegraph Brewing.

750ml bottle into a standard pint glass. The brew appears a pale yellow with some fine particulate stuck in suspension. A fluffy white head sits atop with patchy fingers of lace sticking to the glass. Pretty solid head retention for the style.
The smell is lemony with some wheat and footy grain quality. An earthy brett scent is present focusing the aromatics more towards earthy and somewhat barnyard-like. More sniffs reveal a bit more fruited quality and a bit of spice.
The taste includes a solid amount of wheat along with fruity lemon. Some suggestions of pear mingle with a faint clove-like spice. As more sips are taken, more brett comes forward somewhat like cobwebs, earth and barnyard qualities.
This is a light bodied brew with a light amount of carbonation. Fairly refreshing with an interesting funk inclusion of brett. This was a good beer, it just misses the berliner style a little with its focus on funk. For an american wild, its solid for a berliner, i was happy with just one pour.
