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

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JUL 31, 2012
bottle....A mostly clear golden color that grew hazy as I started to stir up the yeast at the bottom, ultimately finishing with a murky tan color. A white head that faded away quickly. Aroma had some mild wheat notes, some lemon/citrus notes and mild coriander. Flavor really had some interesting lemongrass notes, never had lemongrass before and nice coriander in the finish. The beer overall was a bit two-dimensional. I never really had a distinctive flavor from anything, just subtle notes. No real orange or yeast flavors to it. Smooth in the finish, kind of light on the palate.

Bottle from Chevy Chase Wine and Liquor. Bold golden body with big, fast-receding head. Nose is lemon, citrus, floral, mangos, spices. Taste is similar of floral, mango, lemongrass for sure, spices. Creamy, light finish.

Great summertime beer. Pleasant start with a sirprising finish. Not too heavy, but with a quality balance usually only found in heavier stock.

Tognetta (702) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - AUG 25, 2016
Amarelo claro pálido de leve turbidez, espuma branca de boa formação e média persistência. No aroma cítrico misto de limão e laranja, menos coentro que a maioria das wit. Paladar de leve dulçor e nenhum amargor. Corpo leve acima da média para l estilo, positivamente, média carbonatação. Final de amargor mais citrico do que o cereal e dulçor esperados, média persistência. Bom encontrar variações em um estilo tão repetitivo.

JPDIPSO (5588) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 25, 2016
Pale straw color with a moderate, white head. The lemon and citric peel hold the most attention in the nose. Hints of dough, pale wheat and malt. With a little more effort I do catch a bit of coriander and lavender. Light sweet malt in the front that lead to mild citrus. A touch sharp in the middle with bitter orange peel. A decent wit, but the sharpness distracts. A good effort on a delicate, difficult style. 8/10

Helles trübes gelb schaum ok, Geruch fruchtig würzig, der Geschmack hält absolut was es verspricht jede einzelne zutat ist im laufe des trinken deutlich zu schmecken, wobei sich der koriander besonders im Mittelteil der Pfeffer im Abgang zeigen, die fruchtigkeit begleitet durchgehend, diese bier is schon was feines aber hat auch kante!

PanMarek (223) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2016
Complex nose, floral wheat with touches of coriander and pepper and a malty finish. Pours cloudy golden with thick white foam. Medium body with moderate active fizz. The wheat and spice dominate the taste with the malt in the background in a good balance. The orange flavor is subtle and comes out after several sips The finish is dry and crisp. Sampled at Pittsburgh Big Pour 2015.
