COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Belgian-style White made with dried organic orange slices, fresh cut lemongrass and a bit of coriander. This beer will be a great summer quencher. Namaste was brewed with Leo from Birra del Borgo in Italy as a tribute to our friends at 3 Fonteinen brewery in Belgium, who recently had devastating production loss (1/3 of their annual production!) at their brewery

neuromatt (1154) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2011
750 mL bottle from the Dogfish Head Brewery in Milton, Delaware, served in a branded snifter. Pours hazy golden with a tall white head. The head mostly remains and leaves a small amount of lace. On the nose, there is orange, coriander and lemongrass, along with pale malts and a bit of earth. The flavour is slightly sweet up front, becoming drier towards the end. Notes from the nose are carried through to produce a subtle fruity-grassy-spicy white ale. The finish is long and slightly spicy. On the palate, it is light-medium in body with a dryish texture and lively carbonation. Overall, this is an excellent white ale that makes for a great summer sipper. Refreshing yet surprisingly complex. 2011-07-27

Smells of white grape some nutmeg and fresh live oak branches. Reminds me of the warmth of fall so much more than the summer. Flavor is so refreshing with it’s white wine intro without the tannins and the slightly spicy finish. Body and mouthfeel lend itself to drinking six of this piece. Thank You Dogfish Head. 2011 25oz. bottle.

glennmastrange (2253) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Bottle. Moderate malt aromas of light bread and grain, perfume, grass and lemon for the hops, light dough and barnyard for the yeast with hint of white wine, coriander and nutmeg. Head is small, frothy turning wispy, white with fair lacing and good legs and is almost fully diminishing. Color is hazy golden yellow. Flavor starts lightly swwt and moderately acidic, then finishes slightly acidic and lightly bitter. Palate is light to medium, creamy with a soft carbonation. A very light and lively beer, and a great representation of a Witbier.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - AUG 12, 2011
(750 ml bottle (2011)) Pours hazy yellow-gold with a large white head. Aroma of citrus, spice (I can smell the lemongrass and coriander) and yeasty funk. Mouthfeel smooth, light and refreshing. Flavor of light orangey citrus and spice over the yeasty funk. Not the easiest-drinking witbier but always interesting when DFH does a Belgian style.

Sregnar35 (972) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - AUG 9, 2011
Pours hazy yellow with no head. Aroma is clove and orange. Flavor is spiced malt, nothing extraordinary.

boto (1848) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - AUG 7, 2011
750ml bomber: This one pours a hazy straw-golden color. There was a bit of a white head on it that doesn’t linger long. Also, there were some "floaties" in the beer. There is a nice nose to it. Definitely coriander and yeast to the nose. Some wheat in there also, as well as some floral notes. The taste is good also. Wheat, coriander, and a slight dryness to the beer. Citrusy flavors also. Good, but a bit pricey for the style.

On tap at Proof. Spicy nose - grass and wheat. Nice crisp floral lemony pepper taste. Clean and tasty.

All sorts of conflicting aromas in this. Coriander is the dominant one. This is definitely light, and a bit wheaty. Mostly this is pretty good, but just a bit too wheat-dominant to be awesome for me. Good though.
