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

Pours a hazy yellow golden hue with a nice fluffy white head that dissappears and leaves little lacing. Aroma is pretty weak, didnít have the belgian spice hit I was expecting, light notes of lemon grass, some coriander and the orange is the stand out in the aroma. Wow, this stuff is crazy refreshing, light belgian yeast hints with just enough lemongrass orange and coriander, not overly spiced like some others in this style. Creamy smooth mouthfeel that finishes just right. Yum.

Bomber bottle from Dogginí It in Pittsburgh. Since this is a white beer it is easy to say that the taste was appreciated to a greater extent by my wife than myself, having a natural disposition to anything white in beer. What we have here is a pleasing experiment with some unusual flavors. Had to try hard to find the lemongrass, which might have been overtaken by the orange, but the other flavors do arrive over the course of the bottle. This is a good one to relax with and to find your inner happy place.

750 ml. Hazy amber-gold with a huge sticky foam. Crisp aroma of citronella and light orange zest; maybe a hint of wheat and honey. Flavor is the same, nearly overpowered by the lemon grass, but some coriander, orange and grain manage to peak through. Light-medium body is well-balanced, soft, and refreshing with a spicy-acidic tingle.

Pours with a large micro-foam head that is near white. Very cloudy yellow color, with a near lemon-y hue. Carbonation is not very noticeable from the outside, but is there. The smell honestly isnít that great. It smells of lemongrass mainly, with notes of coriander. The head dissipates at a steady rate with noticeable lacing. The taste is rather subdued, but pleasant. It starts out with a dose of coriander and a slight kick of bitterness which melds into the citrus orange flavor and ends with a mainly lemony taste. Smooth and drinkable. The mouthfeel is rather average, and the tastes linger on your tongue for a minutes. Decent carbonation.

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.
