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

aroma is full of lemongrass and citrus. flavor is similar, bright in front but fairly heavy and sweet in back. sharp wheat finish. itís got some good flavors but not great as a beer. had this in december so maybe it wasnít so fresh but it doesnít strike me as a particularly "great summer quencher."

bottle thanks to someone, i think. poured yellow with a white head. aroma was wheat?? coriander, and orange with the flavor being much the same as the nose. body was light and fizzy.

The aroka is full citrusy like orange marmalade. The beer is golden with a fizzy white head and some sediment. The taste is spicy with orange notes. The body is medium with lots of carbonation. A great beer and good representation of the style.

great label... consumed 3/28/11. sunshine color with a soft soapy white head. drippy lace follows. aromas of matches/sulfur, orange, coriander/dust, wheat, florals and yeast. the flavor is kinda soapy... not floor cleaner but the lemongrass really makes it seem synthetic. the surprising amount of lemongrass mixes with the notes from the aroma to make the flavor. it is mellow and soft.... quite unlike any dfh beer ive ever had. the aftertaste/burps afterward are of lemongrass and canned oj. refreshing. no yeasty business in the aftertastes as well. it has a clean mouth feel....lacking the typical sludge of the style. this would be a great summer session if it werenít for the price tag ($9 for a bomber of 5% beer.... come off it) 7/4/7/4/15

A bit too spicy and too sweet. Could have used something to dry out the finish and balance it out a bit. Spices were muddled and conflicting and the orange flavor was too potent. blah

750 ml bottle served in a tulip. Pour is hazy gold/orange with 3 billowing fingers of white head. Nose is coriander, oranges, lemons, and fresh cut grass. Taste is spot on, but all those wit flavors arenít over the top, which makes this one really tasty for my palate. This bottle has been sitting for quite some time, maybe a year or so, which could account for itís toned down "balance" that I find so enjoyable. I wonder how I would rate a fresh bottle, not being a fan of the style?

One of the better DFH beers, quite friendly and easy going. On tap at the house of 1000 beers. Has a slight candy aroma to it, nicely appetizing. Very light palate. Almost watery in body, but is a good way. One of their lightest beers that I can recollect. Pretyy good sizzle on the tongue. Could be a decent session brew. Tasted a lot of DFH today, by far this was the best.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2011 Blonde haze color with a white foamy head. Smells of orange zest and a bit of coriander. Refreshing taste with a slightly dry finish. Label says a great summer beer, but reminds me more of holiday flavors.

Hazy yellow-orange with a medium sized white head. Aromas of orange zest, lemongrass, and light corriander. Soft yeasty attack, light body, prickly carbonation, and a citric dry finish. Very nice.
