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

Reviewed 9-11-10. I guess this is one of their MANY summer seasonals. I split this one with my wife: Ap: Very light, almost peach colored, cloudy, with about a 1 inch head. Very appropriate for the style. Ar: Coriander first, then lemon, orange, and with a hint of pepper. I also detected a very faint grassy sort of aroma. T: Earthy with a capital "E!" This really didn’t even taste like an alcoholic beverage at all, and all of the blended ingredients really work! The coriander really keeps the citrus in check and keeps it from being too "hot." P: Bubbly, champagne-like, and with a very frothy lacing. Also, the head never subsided throughout the entire session. O: I really admire the understated nature of this brew. Lots of ingredients are listed, and on the first taste, I was initially let down. After a few more sips, study, and contemplation, the brewers’ intention started to hit me in a revelatory way. A great summer Witbier. My wife hated it of course....just like she does most beer. Oh well....

Hazy pale light yellow. Fizzy and a quick white head. Very failt bland tart wheat flavors. Some off notes that i supppose is intentional. Not a fan.

This has a pale yellow body with a dense white head that is preventing me from getting a good whiff of the aroma. Finally! - It smells of oranges with a little spiciness along with some bread dough. It tastes of bread dough with extra flour, oranges, coriander, other spices, and a little lemony tartness. This is a quiet kind of a drink but has enough flavor to keep it from getting boring. It’s probably be good in warm weather.

Bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY--- Hazy light amber with a site head cover and broken bands of lace. Taste is malt with spices and coriander that moves modestly through the palate to a crisp, mildly buttered finish. A good easy-drinking beer, but not nearly the best example of the style.

Pours pale yellow and clear with a tall white head. Nice strong aroma - sweet, grass, lemon, orange peel. Tastes light, citrusy, and wheat; also with a little bit of yeast. Palate has a light body with lively carbonation.

White beer along the lines of Hoegaarden, but not as strong on the spices. Citrusy taste, light, yellow-orange color with hardly any lacing. I reallly like the light flavor. A new favorite

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2014 cloudy yellow color with small head. Typical Wit beer aromas, you can smell the orange peel and the spices. Some freshness of the lemongrass maybe? On the tongue you really taste he spices. Well-balanced, light body, good wit beer, just like it should be.

(Bottle). A solid Witte style but not quite as complex as commercially described. Nonetheless a great summer choice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
