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

Every bit a Belgian white. Anyone whom provided a negative review should adjust your palate 'cause this is a great example. Citrus, lemon wedge and rind, hazy appearance with lacing and yeasty yummyness. Wet-horse blanket anticipated and welcomed. Fresh cut grass yes a mouthful face-first on the yard. Summer isn't that far away reminder during an abysmal winter. Open the garage and clean the mower tray because summer is coming! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CelticBrew (792) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Pours from 750 a hazy golden with a medium bubbly white head. Aroma of coriander, lemongrass, orange, peat, wheat and floral notes. The flavour has a characteristic spicy wit with cream, citrus, and distinct lemon. Big creamy citrus taste, with emphasis on lemon and plenty of spice, ending with a nice dry bitter kick. Exceptional wit.

12 ounce bottle. Hazy light gold color. Small fluffy white head. Aroma is slightly citrus with notes of hay and white peppercorns. Flavor is light dryish wheat malt with a touch of coriander and citrus hops. Light bodied and refreshing.

McBeastie (15) - Florida, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Citrus and lemongrass aromas were inviting. Maybe it was my glass, but the thin white head dissipated quickly and left no lacing. Left it looking like a hazy white wine. Thin mouthfeel with a light body and lively carbonation. Slightly sour on the short finish. Great session beer that would go great with mussels.

Gerbeer (1788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours a very slightly hazy yellow with light head. Aromas of lemongrass, perfume, and honey, with additional hard to define floral notes. Flavors of coriander, citrus, and light candied fruit. Very quenching. At 4.8% I could drink this all day.

bwa5879 (665) - Portage, Michigan, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Clear straw pour lighter than apple juice with a haze of thin white head on top and a copious amount rising from the bottom. Soapy belgian yeast aroma, sweet wheat coriander, along with sour rubberiness (pale malts?), and white grape juice. Lively carbonation, mouthfeel resppectable but on the thin side, crisp but slightly dull finish. Wheat and belgian yeast flavor, cirus rind is more dull than the coriander but the soapy qualities are in the forefront, wheatiness dulls the finish. Alright but a little too wheaty.

Aholmb1 (96) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Appearance: translucent yellow color, really nice white foamy head about two inches and stays in tact for a long time, nice lacing on glass Aroma: orange, citrusy, coriander Taste: citrusy, orange, Palette: slight bitterness at the end, light body Overall: this is a very refreshing beer, great session beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

airrick2003 (484) - Louisiana, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Appearance: light gold to yellow color, slight haze, pours with a huge white head, takes a while to pour this beer down Aroma: bread, yeast, lemon, banana, pretty aromatic, smells delicious, perhaps some funk Taste: bread, very pale malt, has a very light bitter aftertaste towards the end, more bland than I was expecting Palate: light mouthfeel, minimal aftertaste, frothy, lively carbonation Overall: pretty good but I have to say I was expecting better, like a good very easy drinking hefeweizen with less flavor ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Excellent session beer, very well balanced and subtle. Extra high drinkability. Would like to taste it on draft.

Fantastic Wit, exactly what I modeled my homebrew Wit after. The bitter orange is perfect along with the subtle coriander spice notes. The lingering Belgian yeast is nice.
