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

750 ml bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a hazy straw gold color with an inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both pretty good. The brew smells like coriander, orange peel, wheat and some yeast. It tastes like oranges, lemon peel, coriander, wheat and a bit of peppery spice. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, itís crisp and is well carbonated. Drinkability is very good, itís nice, refreshing and really easy to drink. Itís a great choice for a summer day or an unseasonably warm 65 degree mid-November day like today is. I think this is a good overall brew, nice and sessionable. Iíd like to see this beer put in a 6-pack, but Iíll still buy bombers of this.

750ml bottle shared with some friends. I didnít really know what to expect from this one, so I went in with an open mind. It had a good amount of spicy, dried fruit in the aroma, which is was pleasantly surprised by since the color was very light and the body was just as light. It seemed to be a good beer that most people could enjoy. The carbonation seemed right on point, as did the flavors.

Bottle. Cloudy gold with a short, sticky white head. Aroma is spices with wheat, light lemon, orange peel, and yeast. Taste is big spice (coriander), lemon, softer orange peel, wheat/grains, yeast and sweet malt. Light candied fruit as well. Body is light and very bubbly. Ends with more spice and yeast. Thereís a healthy grain/wheat backbone atop sweet malt, candied fruit and lemon zest.

Typical lemon orange golden color, with some light foamy head, lots of sediment. OK and typical but nothing special just a nice wit beer. Plenty of Orange and spices.

750ml bottle as a trade extra. Nice appearance that is more or less what you want for a Belgian-style witbier. Cloudy golden-straw color with a one-finger white head and good lacing. The aroma is pretty nice, with wheat, lemon, orange peel, and coriander. Big on the citrus fruits. The flavor is also rather citrusy and spicy, yet not as in-your-face as a lot of other Dogfish Head beers. Wheaty with orange and lemon, with slight sweetness. Fairly dry on the palate with medium body and a medium-high carbonation. A solid beer overall. I donít get the hate for it.

750mL bottle. Immediately went back to buy another, only to find out they were out. Limited availability from what I can find. If you find it, buy it! Or let me know so I can go buy it. Excellent flavor. Nice summer time refreshing beer.

Aromas od lemongrass and orange peel. Flavors of coriander, lemongrass and a little orange. Light and fizzy on the palate. Overall a very enjoyable wit.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5045) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Sampled on draft at 3 Rivers 6 pack this beer poured a cloudy yellow-golden color with a large white head that lingered and produced minimal lacing. The aroma was tart with notes of coriander, pepper and bread. The flavor was tart and dry with cardboard, must, coriander and pepper notes. The finish was medium length and had lingering coriander and must. Medium body. Ok.

Strong coriander, dandelion, and lemongrass nose, all perfectly complimentary. Hazy yellow, headless. Delicious coriander and lemon flavor. Clean finish. Thin mouthfeel, but full of flavor. One of the best witbiers Iíve ever had.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazed light yellow with a slight orange tinge and a nice dense white frothy head, just how I like my witís to look. Aroma is a bit stinky and floral, good amount of lemongrass but not over powering at all, plenty of fresh coriander seeds though. Flavor is sweet but not overly so like many of the other DFH 750ís, at first I was getting a nice lemongrass taste but the more I drink the more it turns to straight coriander, I can see the Birra del Borgo influence here, long lasting almost numbing coriander aftertaste, very nice but could certainly use a little more depth or edge. Light bodied, not sugary sticky like many DFH 750ís, off-dry with light chalkiness, would be very refreshing if it werenít so much coriander.
