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....

12 oz. bottle served in a shaker- poured a somewhat murky yellow-orange color, white ring around the glass for a head. Aroma of coriander and pepper. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt is roasted in sunshine, light fruit sensations and banana in the middle, finish has pepper and coriander. Nice.

Aroma is mild, but love the color. Holds a nice body in the light. The hint of peppercorn is just a touch and keeps your thirst up, satisfied by the next sip of citrus notes. Average light beer finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Floral and spicy notes. Pours beautifully with a nice head. Clean going down with only the slightest but pleasant lingering aftertaste.

12oz bottle pours out clear crisp straw topped with a white head. Nose is lemon zest banana and spice. Taste is more of the lemon citrus and banana bread.

Aroma was more bready than I expected. Taste was vaguely spicy and fruity. Palette quite nice. Color white, not that hazy.

Bottle. Semiclear golden body with small white head. Aroma of wheat, coriander and tea. Taste is lightly sweet with honey and subtle orange peel notes. Doughy finish with wheat. Lacks a little of the fresh wit punch.

This is one of the best Belgian White beers I have had. Count on Dogfish Head to nail a style and add their unique twist to make a super good beer. You get big bready, lemon and I don’t know how else to describe it, Belgian aromas. Taste is awesome. You can easily pick out the orange and lemongrass. Big breadiness as well. Overall an excellent beer from Dogfish Head and I love how they take a style and still give it their signature twist. Cheers!

Bottle from Drinks of the World. Pours pale yellow. Floral aroma, some citrus. Very good taste, a good balance of crispness, tartness and bitterness. Perfect for a sunny spring afternoon.
