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

Every bit a Belgian white. Anyone whom provided a negative review should adjust your palate 'cause this is a great example. Citrus, lemon wedge and rind, hazy appearance with lacing and yeasty yummyness. Wet-horse blanket anticipated and welcomed. Fresh cut grass yes a mouthful face-first on the yard. Summer isn't that far away reminder during an abysmal winter. Open the garage and clean the mower tray because summer is coming! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

19/I/13 - 75cl bottle @ RBBWG 2013 - BB: n/a (2013-48) Thanks to Travlr for sharing the bottle!

Clear pale yellow beer, creamy white head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: bit chocolaty, citrus, some chloride, bit sweet, floral and soapy notes. MF: soft carbon, light body, feels watery. Taste: citrus, lots of coriander, citrus, pretty bitter, bit medicinal almost. Aftertaste: bitter, little grassy, lots of coriander, citrus, bit chemical, very watery overall. Not your best wit and overdone on the coriander I think.

This was refreshing. It would be a good summer drink. Can definitely taste the spices along with citrus. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chicowv (477) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - JAN 27, 2013
750mL bottle: Pours bright yellow crystal clear with a thin white head; after pouring we realized a nice sediment load in the bottom which was divvied up 3 ways. Then the brew took on a nice cloudy look but was still delicious looking. Aroma was mellow; orange, grassy, yeasty. Taste was nice and balanced, good mellow malts, some spice and a bit of citrus on top of a heavy wheat flavor. Pretty smooth overall but slightly bubbly and astringent on the finish. Pretty decent but nothing special IMO.

Not bad not great. Pale white lots of yeast floaters. Very carbonated aost fizzy. Tastes home brewed. Slight lemon and spice flavor but doesn't come together- odd aftertaste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great unfiltered whit. Good overall taste and good forming head but little lacing and not really my style of brew. Still good.

Pale hazy blond colour, white head. Aroma of malts, hop, grass, some citrus, spicy coriander. Hoppy flavour, lemongrass, light sour touch, quite sweet. Undercarbonated, light bitter, light astringent finish.

Bottle from Hollywood Pizza: Poured a faded out yellow that had tons of sediment floating around while a thick foamy head quickly retreated. The aroma is mild but does deliver with scents of coriander, orange peel, and a faint whiff of clove. The drink is somewhat spicy with dashes of coriander and dried orange peel staying true to witbier fashion but there is a harsh taste of hay or grain that makes this beer not as easy to quaff down compared to most other traditional wits. None the less, this is more flavorful wit in the end and my score resembles that.

Thanks to Travlr for sharing this one. 75 cl. bottle sampled. Quite curious & have been for a long time to try DFH. This is witbier made with dried orange slices, fresh cut lemongrass and some coriander so not too far from the original definition of the style safe for perhaps the lemongrass. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Smells of sweet fluffy wheat, herbs, coriander, bitter herbs, lemon and sweet floral. Taste is soft fluffy wheat, fluffy, airy, lemongrass, lemon, soft yeast & fruits, floral with some bitter herbs, some citrus, spices in the back. Lovely fitting higher carb. airy – quite a fine witbeer. One of the finer ones I have had. Does feel a bit lacking because with all the back-story, interesting ingredient etc. you get a bit more pumped up & expect more. Without that, I would be less interested in trying this but more exited afterwards. Still lovely.
