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

22 ounce bomber. Itís about 75 degrees and sunny outside, so to celebrate that spring has sprung Iím digging a rarity from Dogfish out of the back of the fridge. Namaste pours a hazy light gold, with a nice pillowy head that dissipates pretty quickly. Lots of little floaties remain in my glass. Not sure if thatís yeast, spice, or something else. Rustic is probably the best Ė and kindest - way to describe the appearance. Has the hallmark smell of a classic witbier, with notes of coriander and light citrusy orange peel the first things I pick up in the nose. Iím also getting a lemon character which I can only assume is the lemongrass. First taste is quite nice, as the beer has a certain thirst quenching impact, in that it hits the tongue and quickly washes to the sides of the mouth and down the throat almost too fast. Musky wheat malt holds up the structure of the beer from the onset, before itís washed away by a cavalcade of spice and citrus. Yeast lends a slightly tart, almost sour note in a supporting role. The after finish is pleasant lemon pith. The beer finishes dry, with a hint of spicy carbonation, which leaves you wanting to go back to it and drink some more. Wits can often be heavy handed in the spice department, though that is not the case with Namaste, which arrives at a nearly perfect balance between the signature spices and the wheat and hops behind them. Kudos to the brewer, though the lengthy cellaring time may have had something to do with it as well. Despite the somewhat awkward appearance at the beginning, the beer is actually quite good, and certainly hits the spot on a warm spring day.

$8 bomber pours a cloudy yellow with a decent head of small white bubbles.and some lacing. Orange peel, lemon, and coriander are detectable to the nose. Aroma is the same, The citrus flavor comes off sweet on the tongue. Very lively carbonation and medium body. A very refreshing Witbier, but maybe not up to the hype.

One of the few Witbiers I have had that wasnít home-brewed that I enjoy. Pours a light straw with very small head, some lacing. Nice floral and citrus aroma. Tastes of coriander and orange peel with some grassy notes in the background. Finishes with the floral notes.

Looks awesome poured in a tall glass, enjoyed the light body but obvious attention to fine detail. Everything here is subtle and chrisp but there is no protruding alcohol flavor. This isnít going to blow any minds and may not be worth the presentation but Iíde say try it for yourself if someone else is buying!

Bottled 10-2011. Poured into a tulip. Temp is around 40 Degrees F. A - Five finger head with a mix of tight and big bubbles. Crystal clear head. The beer itself is a mild yellow with lots of head and sediment floating around S - Itís easy to pick out the coriander, oranges and Lemon grass. Lemon may be the biggest smell followed by other citrus scents. Nice floral scent. T - The coriander and citrus are pretty mellow when you taste it. Thereís some pine or maybe birch taste in here. Itís not too extreme. Tastes are sort of just there but nothing very pronounced or worth pointing out. M - Thereís a ton of carbonation in this beer! Huge carbonation and a swish makes the liquid turn completely into bubbles. Ginger lingering as well. It stays with you for a while. O - Another DFH let-down. Itís alright but I bought two and traded one of them. Glad I did as this is just a let down.
