22 ounce bomber. It’s about 75 degrees and sunny outside, so to celebrate that spring has sprung I’m digging a rarity from Dogfish out of the back of the fridge. Namaste pours a hazy light gold, with a nice pillowy head that dissipates pretty quickly. Lots of little floaties remain in my glass. Not sure if that’s yeast, spice, or something else. Rustic is probably the best – and kindest - way to describe the appearance. Has the hallmark smell of a classic witbier, with notes of coriander and light citrusy orange peel the first things I pick up in the nose. I’m also getting a lemon character which I can only assume is the lemongrass. First taste is quite nice, as the beer has a certain thirst quenching impact, in that it hits the tongue and quickly washes to the sides of the mouth and down the throat almost too fast. Musky wheat malt holds up the structure of the beer from the onset, before it’s washed away by a cavalcade of spice and citrus. Yeast lends a slightly tart, almost sour note in a supporting role. The after finish is pleasant lemon pith. The beer finishes dry, with a hint of spicy carbonation, which leaves you wanting to go back to it and drink some more. Wits can often be heavy handed in the spice department, though that is not the case with Namaste, which arrives at a nearly perfect balance between the signature spices and the wheat and hops behind them. Kudos to the brewer, though the lengthy cellaring time may have had something to do with it as well. Despite the somewhat awkward appearance at the beginning, the beer is actually quite good, and certainly hits the spot on a warm spring day.

Aroma is grass, orange, hint of banana. Taste has a little sweetness but followed with a strong spicy kick: coriander, yeast, lemon, ginger? It’s delicious and quenching and among the best in the style.

Flaska från Kihoskh drucken i vårsolen. En vänlig lätt kryddad wit som känns mer amerikansk än belgisk. Det brukar inte betyda någonting bra men den här är inte dålig. Frisk, lätt syrlig men framförallt mjuk och len vete. Lättkryddad med spår av koriander men lite mer citrus och citrongräs. Riktigt trevlig.

Bardzo mało intensywny aromat. Trochę owocowy, trochę kwaśny i słodowy. Bardzo ładny, ale strasznie słaby. Złoty, opalizujący kolor, maleńka piana. W smaku typowy blond, troszkę nut belgijskich. Bardzo mocno nasycony. Pijalny. Orzeźwiający.
