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

Cakes (383) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2011
A very hazy light golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. It looks like grapefruit juice in a glass. Aroma of coriander, wheat malt, citrus fruits, orange peel, lemongrass, and orange. Taste of wheat, lemon, citrus fruits, coriander, pepper, and a dry finish.

Frank (3269) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2015
This is a pretty decent twist on a wit, albeit a touch on the heavy side for my liking. Itís cloudy orange w/ a small but very long lasting head of fine white bubbles. I get bananas up front but that quickly wanes to cloves, cinnamon and orange. This is a bit sweet which helps highlight the full body and the banana and orange notes but only slightly offset by tartness so overall this comes off as just a bit syrupy. Itís pretty drinkable regardless I just prefer this style to be well on the dry side. It finishes w/ some lingering spicy biterness and a touch of honey sweetness. Probably not my favorite wit but Iíd drink this again.

Bulk_Carrier (2571) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2015
On tap at brewpub in Rehoboth Beach. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance had a hazy burnt orange color with a bar pourís kind of slim white head that left no lacing. The smell started off with a nice citrus to light breadiness. As it warmed, a light black pepper came about. The taste was mildly sweet with a nice underscore of the black pepper and brought in the breadiness to balance. A quick pepper/citrus aftertaste rolls into a balanced bready finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a super nice sessionability about it. Carbonation seemed good for the style and for me. Overall, I say this was a pretty good witbier that I would have again.

yngwie (14822) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle. An almost clear one, golden in color and with a small, dense, white head. Itís quite spiced and citrusy on the nose, with a papery maltyness. The flavor is lightly sweetish, with spiced notes, coriander and pale malts. Itís medium bodied and pleasantly carbonated, with a bit too much sweetness. Lasting finish. Rather simple this one, but easy drinkable and quite nice. 150513

Bottle. Light golden with medium white head. Aroma of pilsner malt, fruit and yeasty esters. Light body, yeast notes, spices (corriander), fruity esters, and a dry finish. Reminds me more of a saison than a witbier.
