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

This poured a cloudy straw yellow color with a white head. Aroma was of light spices, and very strong hair salon. Flavor was wheaty, some light citrus and coriander and some yeast as well. A barely above average belgian white.

MadIndian (2414) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2010
Bottle from Canalís in Delran Nj. Cloud orange / golden pour with aromas of lemon, orange, pine and hop. Flavor matched aroma , but it also had a perppery bread finish. GOOD!

ROGUE (2099) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 14, 2010
750ml bottle. Poured a bright golden color with a bit of haze and a white head that lasted a while. Light lacing. The aroma is great, with the yeast, orange peel, and lemongrass all pretty evident. Taste mirrors the nose, with some wheat and a nice light sweetness to it. Thin bodied with great carbonation. Was easy to drink and very refreshing, a great summer beer.

cakanator (452) - South Hadley, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 7, 2010
Draft at Sierra. Pours a nice light golden color with frothy pure white head. Nice balanced citrus aroma, but it wasnít anything that I hadnít smelled before. Very clean palate, lots of refreshing citrus, oranges up front. Palate was balanced once again, but not the most flavorful beer. Itís just a straight up belgian white, thats good but not great. Worth trying at least once.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - OCT 4, 2010
750ml bottle. Pours a bright yellow color with a bright white foamy head about 2 fingers thick. Head stays well throughout. Nose is light pepper notes with some wheaty hints, light lemon. Palate is crisp, lively, refreshing and clean. Flavor is peppery and lightly citrusy, some coriander and a nice clean, refreshing finish.

Goodgrief (1796) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Pale orange color, smallish head. Funky wheaty aroma, not really pleasant, like sour smelling. Flavor was super coriandery with a lot of orange sweetness. Heavy wheat yeasty flavor as well. Not really light and refreshing...and donít really buy the "thirst quencher" label from the description. Good for a one time try, but a witbier is not really what I think of when I crave something rich and strong flavored.

I would call this a Hoegaarden "clone" And thatís a good thing! I wish I had a Hoe right now to compare it with. Coriander is very present, wheat, yeast and a little orange. Taste is lemon grass and massive coriander, sugar, and some bitterness in the background. Small head that left very nice lacing as I drank. Mild carbonation. ANOTHER, strong beer from the brewer in Milton, Delaware.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2011 I first experienced this odd (out of the norm) Dogfish Head concoction at the Denver Rare Beer Tasting II back in 2010, poured by Sam Calagione himself. Now that the beerís made it out of "rare" status, 750ml bottles of it can be found on even Texas shelves. It pours a somewhat cloudy light yellow color with some small particles being tossed about in the brew by some fairly vicious "chunks" of carbonation. Atop all of this sits a very billowy, airy white head and wet lacing. A great-looking beer for the style. For a witbier, probably the best aroma Iíve ever experienced - but thatís because Iím one of those people who donít normally enjoy traditional witbiers. It has a fresh aroma with a hint of coriander and light citrus that gives the entire experience a clean, faintly fruity quality. A really easy beer with a totally different mouth experience that most witbiers give. Lemongrass and coriander, with some fresh, wet orange, dominate the flavor palate, but donít weigh the beer down - and in my opinion, what really saved this beer was their choice of yeast. Very clean in the mouth, thereís no lingering obscenities here. Light, great on a hot day, and wonít weigh down your belly like some witbiers or hefes do. A very pleasant beer!

Surprisingly uninteresting, pedestrian for DFH, decent body, dare I say somewhat traditional...nice to the palate, good mouthfeel
