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

Sammy (8359) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 5, 2011
Belgian style, yet so pleasing to regular summer consumers by being both zesty and hoppy. Cloudy light grapefruit coloured body with tons of foam. Orange citrus is thee main taste, comes across as 45-55 ibu, lemongrass cushions the mouthfeel and leads to a nice aftertaste. Good flavour for such a basic abv. Smooth mouthfeel, creamy.

Straw yellow pour just slightly hazed with white head. Large corriander, with a wheatiness aroma. Wheaty, sweet, corriander, light Belgian yeast, with a very light bitter finish. Medium bodied with light foamy carbonation.

(750ml bottle thanks to Exiled) clear pale yellow with lasting film of white fine bubbles. Nose of lemongrass, orange slices and cilantro. Taste of orange, lemongrass, creamy, spicy and delicious. Creamy body. Really enjoyed this unique beer.

Boliv (1148) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2011
750mL bottle from 2011 generously shared by Photog. Pours hazy orange with some suspended sediment, topped with a 3-finger fluffy and creamy light beige head. Aromas of spicy orangepeel and coriander, mild clove, lemon zest, and slight circus peanut candy. The flavor is light orange and slightly bitter grass, citrus peel, and very mild tangy fruit. The lemongrass is noticeable, but not overpowering. A sugary fruit finish with some yeast. Medium carbonation and body, and super-drinkable. Very tasty and refreshing. Thanks Dan! [714]

750ml from Sam’s, Durham. Hazy light golden pour, frothy and elemental with a somewhat gushing foamberg that eventually settles down at odd, dimpled angles. Fresh, lightly spiced nose, and thankfully not the usual orange peel extract alone. It’s dry and herbal more than saccharine sweet like a lot of wits. Mouthfeel was full and somewhat prickly, the playful carbonation bringing out some of the lighter flavors a bit. Most of the flavor was lemongrass bite for me, so I approached it like Thai wit and it was fairly refreshing.

boFNjackson (4100) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 17, 2011
Tap @ The Hop & Vine... Poured hazy golden, pale straw with a white head. Floral, citrus, lemon-zest, creamy wheatiness, sweet tarts, cereal grains. Clean, dry, light fruitiness. Pretty great, but not $6 for a 6 oz pour great.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 16, 2011
Very cloudy, murky yellow, with a big dense spongy head. My notes describe the aroma as very wit-y, which I can’t remember if that was an attempt at wit to describe a wit, or if I was simply trying to say that this is a very witty wit. My head hurts. Anyway, flavor is lemongrass and orange peel, some vanilla, some coriander. Nicely thin mouthfeel.

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - MAY 14, 2011
750ml bottle. Cloudy yellow/straw pour. Wheaty spicy nose. Grainy spicy and refreshing flavor with hints of citrus, lots of refreshing wheat. Dry finish. Light body with lots of effervescence makes it quite quenching. Overall, a tasty Wit.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - MAY 14, 2011
Pours hazy light golden yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma of lemon, fresh ground coriander, sweet fruit, beers like this always remind me of fruit loops or fruity pebbles. Taste is light but still flavorful, some grain husk, lemon rind. Light body, medium high carbonation.
