A witbier bursting with good karma. Made with dried organic orange slices, fresh-cut lemongrass and a bit of coriander, this Belgian-style white beer is a great thirst quencher. Namaste was originally brewed at our pub in Rehoboth Beach with our Italian friend Leo from Birra del Borgo. It was a tribute to our friends at 3 Fonteinen brewery in Belgium, who had devastating production loss (1/3 of their annual production) in 2009.

Reviewed 9-11-10. I guess this is one of their MANY summer seasonals. I split this one with my wife: Ap: Very light, almost peach colored, cloudy, with about a 1 inch head. Very appropriate for the style. Ar: Coriander first, then lemon, orange, and with a hint of pepper. I also detected a very faint grassy sort of aroma. T: Earthy with a capital "E!" This really didn’t even taste like an alcoholic beverage at all, and all of the blended ingredients really work! The coriander really keeps the citrus in check and keeps it from being too "hot." P: Bubbly, champagne-like, and with a very frothy lacing. Also, the head never subsided throughout the entire session. O: I really admire the understated nature of this brew. Lots of ingredients are listed, and on the first taste, I was initially let down. After a few more sips, study, and contemplation, the brewers’ intention started to hit me in a revelatory way. A great summer Witbier. My wife hated it of course....just like she does most beer. Oh well....

RedSox2004 (1685) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Pours a hazy straw yellow with a chalk-colored white head. Lemongrass, coriander, straw, sweet malty aroma, generously spiced. Flavor is similar, with tangy fruity, lemon zest and spices. Light body, lively carbonation, ticklish on the tongue, and a clean crisp finish.

magsinva (1105) - Virginia, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Bottle from App Vintner - aged probably 18 months - pours a cheerful lemon yellow, very aggressive foaming on the initial pour. I’m getting the spicy lemon invests on the nose, which is nice. The taste is sweet seltzer with a tad bit of dryness on the finish. Nice!

The taste is nothing short of amazing. Loads of orange is definitely there, with heaps of coriander as well. Just a very flavorful wit all around. This is how you do it. The slightly grainy wheat shows up just after, along with a small zing at the back which I’ll assume is the lemongrass. Perhaps the best wit I have ever had, and that’s saying something when it’s considered that this is one of my very favorite styles.

bierkitty (167) - Elysburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Poured a frothy yellow and cloudy with little floaters. Aroma of coriander and Belgian yeast. Nicely balanced spices, although I prefer a bit more orange and citrus. A little thin on the wheat base. Highly carbonated. Ok, but nothing to drive to Delaware for.
