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

wow, a DFH that isnt a hop or alcohol wallop. nice. a very good version of style, albeit with a slightly grassier bitter finish, which is nice compared some other more traditional style of wits. definitely will buy again...if i can afford it, that is.

Draught at the Lucky Dog, Brooklyn, NY.
Hazy yellow colour with tiny white head. Wheat, yeast, citrus and coriander in aroma. Real Witbier. Flavour is wheat, Belgian yeast, citrus, coriander and spices. Tasty Witbier.

Hazy light golden with almost a touch of a green tinge perhaps it was the lighting, nice big white head... Very spicy aroma, loads of coriander and possibly pepper, light citrus... Very lively, medium light body, somewhat dry finish... very spicy flavor, coriander pepper lemon... complex beer for the abv and style

weihenweizen (2030) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUL 21, 2011
Refrigerated big bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours cloudy golden with big chunks of floating yeast and big fluffy white head that dissapates quickly. Highly carbonated, light body, and good lacing. Taste is orange, coriander, some sour wheat, and a hint of lemongrass. Over-rated, I prefer a St. Bernardus Wit Bier.

750 ml bottle

Lingering in the cellar was a bottle of this. Having been a while since I tried a DFH release (barring the collaborative saison) I opted to give it a shot. After all their beers seem to be a love / hate thing (either I love them or they feel overpriced and bland).

Aroma and appearance - The cloudy semi-transparent base was murky like stirring a cup of tea with a little bit of dregs at the bottom. Golden hints shine like the low hanging sun as it rises. Silky legs were a nice accent. Lemon pledge, coriander, and yellowed newspaper which has aged to a fragile crispness hover in the air. Masked by the smell of urinal cakes it is both interesting and distracting at the same time. Perhaps a few less spices would have been nice.

Flavor and palate - The chewy mouthfeel is like pouring a caramel Twix down the throat. The peppery finish tastes like someone grabbed random spices from the cabinet and dumped them in during brewing. This was not that terrible but I felt myself wanting more. Somehow I see it being a while before I pick up another large format bottle from DFH except for those in the cellar.

On tap; poured a dull gold color, with not much head. Aroma preheat, yeast, citrus and herbs. Flavor was very herbal, almost band aid. A good amount of lemOn and citrus. Ok, but a bit herbal

Poor nice light hazy golden with good long lasting head. Smells fruit oranges bannannas and spices. taste light with real nice spicy finish. Biggest problem is its not really that lasting. Has a weird tartiness that is hard to peg.

Pours a hazy pale yellow, with a small white head. Aroma of lemongrass, spices, and citrus notes. Very refreshing, with a light body, flavors of citrus, spices, and light wheat. Sweet in the finish, and better than I expected. I would defiantly buy this one again!

750ml bottle, uncorked. Hazy pale, unfiltered, yellow orange. Reminds me of their Sahtea in the strong herbal spice notes. Smooth, strawy lime, lemon, wheat. Very mellow, medium bodied beer. Quite drinkable and refreshing, Creamy. Complex. Quite nice.
