3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 purchased at Casanova. Consumed in a Moeder Lambic glass. Light golden color with an unfiltered nature. Minor head. Aroma has a strong pepper presence and a subtle orange undertone. Taste is pretty enjoyable with a mix of peppercorns and coriander. A very saison like wheat which is probably what makes it better on my taste buds. Crisp and refreshing. This one is better than I expected. Good option to seek out.

355ml bottle from Drinks of the World, Basel, Switzerland (5.20 CHF):
A simple but very well done witbier with all the usual flavours (orange zest, spice, lemongrass & coriander). Not the most unique from DFH but a great beer with good carbonation, a fresh & crisp feel with nice balance & it was easy to drink; another excellent offering from the brewery.

12oz bottle from Hudson. Clear gold with medium white head . Funky nose. Peppery. Spicy and slightly citrus. I like the spice crispness. A bit thin. Refreshing. Pretty good.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
I had this beer alone with La Trappe Witte Trappist just to compare the two
But I found the La Trappe has better on almost every end except the head which didn't last as long as the Namaste. The beer is cloudy and big
head long lasting, hint of lemon and paperish taste but hollow in the middle palate. Suitable for summers.

Pours light clear yellow with small white head. Nose is light. Some lemon. Taste is lemon, cereal, spice in the finish. Light body. Medium high carb. Overall reminds me of a more flavored light beer. It is decent, just not my style.

The aroma does have the banana influence of German witbier, but the spice influence is much stronger, with quite a peppery finish .

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg pour at NH Brewfest. Appearance is cloudy yellow with a small white foamy head with minimal lacing. Aroma is Belgian yeast fruity esters with spiciness. Taste is sweet fruitiness and Belgian yeast flavor as nose. Palate is light-to-medium bodied, average to lively carbonation with fruity ester Belgian yeast finish. Overall, a nice Witbier, true to the style.
