I came to this from Craig at City Beer in SF. I asked for a couple of his recommendations to send home to the East coast, and this was a great choice.
I have not heard of Telegraph, but they made a great brew! Tonight for dinner, I made a grilled chicken with spinach/lemon pesto. The wheat ale made a great pair for the dinner.
Appearance - hazy in color, looks "wheaty," yet appropriate.
Taste: a little sour, then sweet. you can really taste the brets...
Mouthfeel: not too dry, but very good.
Drinkability: love it. If I could, would buy it again.
It was bottled on Jan 12, 2009 - I don't think it would make a good aged or cellared beer.
Serving type: bottle

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
