This is, by far, my favorite Telegraph beer out of the ones I've tried. The style is basically consensus between all of us drinking it at Beachwood BBQ - Gabe in particular thinks it's a Berliner Weissbier, and I'm inclined to agree.
On tap at Beachwood. From notes:
Appearance: Very thin head, very spotty lacing that is fairly weak in staying power. The body is a hazy pear/peach color, appropriate for a wheat beer.
Smell: "Pear city," as my notes say. Lots of pear in the aroma, followed by cork wood, apricot, and belgian yeast. A hint of peach in there, too. Really a fairly fantastic smelling beer, if for no other reason the pears.
Taste: Apricot on the front end, followed by pears, straw, and sourness on the back end. Surprisingly drinkable, and surprisingly addicting. A bit cider-like.
Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, and juicy. Very slightly dry.
Drinkability: Intensely drinkable. A great beer.
Serving type: on-tap
