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 didnít 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 brewersí 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....

pale color; orangy, lemony citrus aroma; a very refreshing beer; a well balanced wheat beer with a nice spicy coriander-citrus flavor; the lemongrass gives it a nice, subtle lemony flavor

A Belgian wit, nothing exceptional, fair amount of coriander, wheat, lemony. As expected a really light beer. Way better than an american lager, but eh itís not my go to style.

Coriander, wheat, lemony, the usual wit stuff. A bit watery. Nothing exceptional. Still my most disliked style.

Bottle pour. Pours golden with a really nice orange peel aroma. Really like the orange and lemon flavor in this. Very nice drinking beer here. One of the better wits in my opinion.

Bottle from Sugaya. Light fresh sweet banana and coriander nose. Hazy medium straw color. Gentle citrusy tang, wheat blends with spice and some tiny bitterness, and then fades out. Thin body. Pleasant, light, and refreshing. Donít really get the pepper. Decent summery stuff.

Rated on 02-28-2013 at DFH Brewpub, Redobeth Beach, DE. This draft beer has a small white head with a short retention, straw transparent body, no carbonation observed, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is orange, lemons, fruity, and coriander. The flavor is semi-sweet, orange, coriander, and wheat malt. The mouthfeel is mild carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is very quaffable, session beer, worth trying and a beer I would drink again.

Pailhead (4622) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of wheaty citrus notes with coriander and a hint of lemon. It pours a transparent dull gold with a one finger white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with citrus/orange and some light wheat notes. The finish has coriander, light lemon grass, and a touch of pepper. Itís light bodied with mild carbonation.
