A witbier bursting with good karma. Made with dried organic orange slices, fresh-cut lemongrass and a bit of coriander, this Belgian-style white beer is a great thirst quencher. Namaste was originally brewed at our pub in Rehoboth Beach with our Italian friend Leo from Birra del Borgo. It was a tribute to our friends at 3 Fonteinen brewery in Belgium, who had devastating production loss (1/3 of their annual production) in 2009.

A cloudy white-light-orange brew with a frothy white head that goes to lacing soon. Light citrus aromas. Flavor is light and citrus with a little spice. Smooth drinking. A bit underwhelming compared to Allagash White or others.

750ml bottle from Total Wine in Boca. Pours pale blonde, slightly hazy, with big fizzy white head. Aroma and taste are mild for a wit. Definitely yeasty, only a hint of lemon. Pretty good, not great.

Yeasty aroma has fruity, spicy and malty hints. It pours a slightly hazy solar yellow with a minimal white head that still leaves some good lacing. Malty and wheaty flavor has a firm yeasty undertone and floral and fruity hints, and is very refreshing. Smooth texture has fairly firm body and a rather strong fizz, leaving behind a persistent tingle.

My Bottom Line :
Citrusy herbs and oranges are propelled here and there in this vocal Witbier, as prickly carbonation and herbal hop bitterness assemble some form of refreshment. Quite the ride for a Wit.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A healthy head of foam decorates the cloudy yellow.
-That is one powerful aroma. So powerful that it becomes nearly repulsive. Such intensity in a quencher is really not necessary, in my tastes.
-The flavor profile is thankfully not as sweet or intense as the aroma suggests.
-The herbal hop bitterness is leveled to the rest of the flavor profile’s medium intensity.
-A good brew for sure, but it cannot achieve the quenching factor of many Belgian and Québécois Witbiers which possess as much character.

Pours golden from bottle with bits of yeast floating about. Nice orangy notes on the nose. The orange comes through on the tongue but it’s offset by a dryness, the lemongrass perhaps. Solid!

BillWyce (1015) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2011
From notes: Poured a hazy straw color with a big white head. Very fizzy in the glass. Mild orangey aroma with grassy notes mixed in. Medium-bodied, but a long finish at the tip of the tongue. Citrusy flavor up front with a very mild spice note in the finish. As it warms, a grassy note becomes more prevalent.

Bottle. Deep golden to orange in color, clear, decent white head. The smell is orange slices, slightly spiced, some yeast, fruits, and wheat. The taste is oranges, yeast, wheat, and some spices. Very fruity overall.

750 mL bottle from the Dogfish Head Brewery in Milton, Delaware, served in a branded snifter. Pours hazy golden with a tall white head. The head mostly remains and leaves a small amount of lace. On the nose, there is orange, coriander and lemongrass, along with pale malts and a bit of earth. The flavour is slightly sweet up front, becoming drier towards the end. Notes from the nose are carried through to produce a subtle fruity-grassy-spicy white ale. The finish is long and slightly spicy. On the palate, it is light-medium in body with a dryish texture and lively carbonation. Overall, this is an excellent white ale that makes for a great summer sipper. Refreshing yet surprisingly complex. 2011-07-27

Smells of white grape some nutmeg and fresh live oak branches. Reminds me of the warmth of fall so much more than the summer. Flavor is so refreshing with it’s white wine intro without the tannins and the slightly spicy finish. Body and mouthfeel lend itself to drinking six of this piece. Thank You Dogfish Head. 2011 25oz. bottle.
