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

EithCubes (4704) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Bottle. Cloudy bright golden with a short white head. Big orange peel, coriander and chamomile. Awesome floral wit nose. Medium-full body, medium creamy feel. Tasty wheat and lemon and orange citrus. Perceived sweetness levels off and the bread comes out in a drier finish. A surprisingly well-rounded and well-crafted brew from these guys.

Smells of lemon and a hint of coriander. Nice murky blond with a pretty little head. Very light, very refreshing pretty bland at first with a long finish that will remind you of summer. Tastes like sweetgrass and a hint of citrus. It would be easy to drink this all night.

Location: 750 ml bottle from Buy Rite - Jersey City, 1/3/11

Aroma: The nose is wheat, coriander/spice, lemongrass, bubblegum, and yeast
Appearance: This beer pours a slightly hazy orange color with a small, fizzy, white head
Flavor: Taste is rather typical of the style, wheat, spice, a little citrus, and a touch of grass
Palate: The mouthfeel is light and rather fizzy, the carbonation is high, and the duration rather short
Overall Impression: This is a fairly solid, thought not particularly exciting example of the Belgian White style. It’s certainly worth trying, even if there isn’t anything special about it per se.

While DFH is best known for their creative brews, this one falls a bit short. While it has all of the makings of a fine ale I expected more complexity. This beer delivers what it promises: coriander, citrus, and lemongrass. The color is golden, as is typical to the style, but also a bit more clear than your standard witbier. The head is appropriate and the carbonation is spot-on for this style: medium and slightly creamy. The palate is summed up in one word: refreshing. This tastes very much like a summer ale. If you enjoy the style you will like this, however its probably the most ordinary beer these off-centered folks make.

beerfest5 (1128) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 31, 2010
really nice white ale, funny though that it s tastes remarkable similar to long trail belgian white, but this is more real tasting if that makes any sense. Long Trail tastes like it has artifical flavor, but this seems like its very natural in its taste. aroma is typical for a white, not very strong, but appetizing. the flavor is what you’d expect, but with a little more orange than lemon which is actually nice for a white. very enjoyable.

Tmoney99 (10411) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2010
Bottle. Poured clear amber color with an average fizzy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate yeasty, herbs and citrus aroma. Medium body with a light sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium citrus, yeasty and spice flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

750 ml bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a lightly hazy golden color with a small fleeting white head. The aroma is citrus peel, mildly herbal, lemongrass, floral, withwheat bread. The flavor is soft and well balanced with lemongrass and light peppery notes, orange citrus, lightly floral notes, bready pale malts and a touch of yeast. Medium bodied. I had written that this is best suited for summer before I read the description of the beer. Overall, pretty decent.
