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

Ratman197 (9797) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2011
750 ml bottle poured a hazy golden yellow with a lasting white head. Aromas of wheat, yeast, coriander, lemon grass and light orange. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of wheat, yeast, lemongrass, coriander and a hint of orange with a crisp dry lingering lemongrass finish.

BrewBoxer (2003) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Bottle with Dad. Pours a hazy yellow with a thick pillowy head. Smells of lemon, orange and bread. Taste is yeasty and wheaty with earthy accents of grass. A very refreshing and drinkable beer from DFH.

ExpendableHero (748) - Florida, USA - MAR 27, 2011
22oz bottle from Cork & Bottle in Miami, FL. Hazy, cloudy, golden beer with a bubbly white head. Aromas of coriander, citrus, and wheat. Tastes of fresh lemons/oranges, wheat, some mixed spices, and some floral notes. Has an acidic kick. Semi-dry finish, medium bodied with some moderate carbonation. This brew, while it did not blow me away, was refreshing and enjoyable.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAR 26, 2011
Bottle from Elizabeth Taylor.
Pours a lively, foggy golden yellow with a fluffy white head. Aroma is lemongrass tea, orange rind, coriander, and a touch of spring dew. Flavor isn’t coffe and ripened cucumber but it IS lemongrass hay, light seltzer, subtle juniper and coriander, and semi-sweet baking soda. Uber-tingly on the tongue. Very refreshing and satisfying; I’ll have this again.

dnstone (2139) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 26, 2011
Orange and corriander and lemon grass in the aroma and taste...a definite DFH maltiness in there. Very light and refreshing. Golden in color with white head.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 25, 2011
Bottle:   Straw in color, very pale yellow, thick hazy, moderate to thin sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Spicy nose, corriander, some lemon zest and a bit of wheatiness.   Nice and spicy on the tongue, semi-sweet, spices linger for a while.   Good body, wheaty, not spritzy like many American examples.   Seems fairly nice and hefty.   Could stand to be a little brighter with regards to the spicing, but its not overdone.   Very clean, soft wheaty backside.   This would be a fantastic warm weather beer.   I feel like I should be having a really nice salad with this.   Shit, now I am hungry... good beers do that to ya!

bobbypaulson (217) - Fergus Falls, Minnesota, USA - MAR 25, 2011
had at the DFH brewpub and from a 750ml bottle as well. Pour cloudy yellow with a white head. Smell of Coriander and citrus. Taste is the same with a slight bitterness on the finish. it was a good beer, though not my favorite DFH

Hair6a11 (1356) - Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2011
Bottle; Pour is cloudy light golden with a fairly nice white head - it retains well , and lacing is modest and spotty. Coriander on the nose - I wouldn’t call it a "bit" - Lemon peel, orange zest, and coriander round out the brew - the yeast note is quite mild when comparing to a proper Witbier - It has a slight bitterness on the finish - this is nicer than I was expecting, but I was expecting anything on an epic scale...

Kuzo (115) - Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2011
Pours a very cloudy mimosa looking yellow with thick fluffy white head. Smell is sweet of orange peel, lemongrass, coriander, and lemon. Very refreshing smell. Taste follows the nose with a hint of bitterness. You can really taste the orange peel. The spices are not overpowering. The taste is light, crisp, and very refreshing. Good carbonation. Saw this on Brewmasters (Discovery Channel) and never thought I’d have a chance to try it. It’s good but I probably wouldn’t get it again.

RickTStiles (757) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 23, 2011
pours hazy hay color with thick white head, foamy lacing and lots of suspended yeast. aroma is rich with orange peel, some sugar and coriander. there’s a nice yeast presence as well. taste is citric (lemon stands out) and lightly bitter. finish is light but substantial relative to the style. this is a bold witbier especially considering the low abv.
