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

rbrazell (1452) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Draft at Fermentation. Hazy pale yellow pour with a rocky white head. Aroma is yeast, dried citrus, spices and graininess. Flavor is yeast esters and lighter phenols, grainy malts, and some more orange zest. Medium light bodied with a spicy quick finish. Not bad.

Hopswagger (188) - South Carolina, USA - APR 13, 2014
Solid wit style and crisp flavor profile. Taste is not as dynamic as I had hoped but a safe approach.

reberiii (261) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2014
Light yellow pour. Cardboard and spice nose. Wet dog. Soapy foam. Subtle carb. I get a tad of the lemongrass, and some brightness from the orange. Easy to drink, but not remarkable.

ROBC3366 (361) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bottle. Very active cloudy bright yellow with a thin white bubbly head. Aroma is grass, lemon, wheat, spice, and orange peel. The taste a follows suit and adds more lemon zest, white wine notes, and wheat malts at first. The mouthfeel is bright and clean with high carb. Full bodied at first, middle is refreshing and crisp, the finish comes back strong with a bit of a sticky syrup feel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

islay (890) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 4, 2014
Pour from 12 oz. bottle. Scents of yellow raisin, white wine, caramel, toffee, champagne, and apple juice. There is also a lemon sharpness to the aroma. Pours a pale yellow or straw color. I poured the beer in two separate halves. The first half was clear; the second hazy, but rather lightly so. A column of bubbles rises at a moderate to rapid speed. Small to moderate amount of off-white or light gray-ish head. Looks good and appealing. I pick up pickle brine in the flavor, but without the sourness. In fact, the taste is a bit savory, surprisingly. Biscuit, perhaps even buttered biscuit, and cardboard flavors with a lemon finish. Surprisingly dry taste. Light to medium body. Lively and frothy in the palate. Overall, this beer is enjoyable enough but not particularly good, even within a style that often fails to impress.

Pours a nice gold and is not translucent at all. A small head. The aroma is earthy and the taste and finish are quite smooth. An excellent rendition of a Belgian White which is the closest replication to Hoegarden I have tasted.
