4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A - Pours a clear golden-yellow with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down fairly slowly leaving behind some good lace.
S - Aroma is full of citrus, orange, and lemon, with some lemongrass, wheat, coriander and other spices, and some wheat.
T - Starts off with some light tart lemon zest, alongside some orange and other citrus flavors and some lemongrass. Through the middle, some wheat comes through alongside some Belgian yeast, coriander, and other spices. The finish is a mix of orange, lemongrass, coriander, and wheat.
M - Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry, lightly tart and spicy finish.
D - Very drinkable. Very crisp and refreshing as well. Good mix of being light but full of flavor. Really like the lemongrass and orange flavor.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dogfish Head Namaste is a cloudy, pale yellow beer with small particles in it. Itís topped with a fluffy, bubbly head that has great retention and lacing. It has an overpowering lemongrass aroma. Thereís a little trace of orange peel and a hint of something beer-like-- maybe wheat. Itís light bodied and velvety smooth with a clean, dry finish. Itís lightly flavored. Itís sort of like lemongrass tea meets a Wit. Thereís not really any bitterness to speak of. Itís perhaps a touch sweet. There isnít much aftertaste. I feel like I would enjoy this much more if I was sipping it outside in some hot weather. Itís really mellow and incredibly inoffensive.

Liked it, didnít love it. Big fan of everything Calagione does, but this one was fairly non-descript. There are better wits out there, but this one will do the job if it is available.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours hazy yellow with some white head. Very nice and refreshing aroma typical of a good witbier but with a bit of a Dogfish Head twist that separates it from other wheats (I believe it is due to the lemongrass and crystallized orange wedges instead of simply orange peel). Taste is very similar to what is advertised in the aroma. Nice citrus taste with some spices including coriander and of course the wheat flavor. One of the few good sessionable beers you will find from Dogfish Head.
