Notes: Telekinesis is a hoppy, tart, and smashable American wild ale fermented with a mixed culture of yeast and spontaneous microbes. Mosaic, Citra, and Falconer’s Flight hops contribute peachy, tropical hop character. Lightly toasted white oak spirals lend subtle tannin structure, while our no-boil process leaves a puckering hint of raw sourdough.

One of the best Grimm beers. This and Psychokinesis are two most similar beers they make, and both are among the smoothest beers you will ever drink. Light it flavor and taste, but delicate notes make it well balanced in flavor and taste without strong tastes or scent that might be liked by some and not others. If you like a good sour, you will certainly like this beer, as it really doesn't get much better than this beer.

Poured into a wine glass per bottle instructions on a warm night watching a ballgame. Pour was light and hazy with small amount of head. The taste was refreshing, tarty, and light. Outstanding. Will definitely be revisiting this beer in the future.

A: The beer is relatively clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short bright white head that died down, leaving a thin film of bubbles covering the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of sour lemons and peaches are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, having a moderate amount of sourness with notes of lemons and hints of peaches.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied and rather tart on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very refreshing. It would make for a good selection on a hot summer day.

Bought a bottle at Ryan and Caseys in Greenfield. Beer pours with a murky, medium color straw yellow appearance with no head. Aromas include various citrus aromas, but could mostly smell very ripe orange. Bittersweet with some good orange and lemon balance. Nice and crisp carbonation. Overall, great smells and taste and an exceptional mouthfeel.

One of the best sours I've had in quite awhile. Nice color and aroma with just the right funk/sour to it. Not overwhelming - nice and tasty. Super drinkable especially on a warm day. Fantastic brew - so much flavor. Just wish Grimm's brews were more available. Hopefully with the new brewery that will happen.

had on tap at Mission Dolores in 10oz wine-shaped glass

pours - cloudy straw yellow

smells - sour fruits, citrus, floral, slightly bready

taste - tart and tangy. grimm describes one flavor as raw sourdough and i totally get that in the sip. tart fruitiness upfront, a lower amount of hops than i expected, and that sour bread at the end.

overall - perhaps not my favorite sour offering. a little too tangy and lemony, it felt slightly off balance in a way that other sours i've tried that spike the tongue with tartness and are fruity and dry, but balance that tanginess better.
