COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A witbier bursting with good karma. Made with dried organic orange slices, fresh-cut lemongrass and a bit of coriander, this Belgian-style white beer is a great thirst quencher. Namaste was originally brewed at our pub in Rehoboth Beach with our Italian friend Leo from Birra del Borgo. It was a tribute to our friends at 3 Fonteinen brewery in Belgium, who had devastating production loss (1/3 of their annual production) in 2009.

chicowv (478) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - JAN 27, 2013
750mL bottle: Pours bright yellow crystal clear with a thin white head; after pouring we realized a nice sediment load in the bottom which was divvied up 3 ways. Then the brew took on a nice cloudy look but was still delicious looking. Aroma was mellow; orange, grassy, yeasty. Taste was nice and balanced, good mellow malts, some spice and a bit of citrus on top of a heavy wheat flavor. Pretty smooth overall but slightly bubbly and astringent on the finish. Pretty decent but nothing special IMO.

Not bad not great. Pale white lots of yeast floaters. Very carbonated aost fizzy. Tastes home brewed. Slight lemon and spice flavor but doesn't come together- odd aftertaste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great unfiltered whit. Good overall taste and good forming head but little lacing and not really my style of brew. Still good.

Martinus (4569) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2013
Pale hazy blond colour, white head. Aroma of malts, hop, grass, some citrus, spicy coriander. Hoppy flavour, lemongrass, light sour touch, quite sweet. Undercarbonated, light bitter, light astringent finish.

SDalkoholic (2371) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle from Hollywood Pizza: Poured a faded out yellow that had tons of sediment floating around while a thick foamy head quickly retreated. The aroma is mild but does deliver with scents of coriander, orange peel, and a faint whiff of clove. The drink is somewhat spicy with dashes of coriander and dried orange peel staying true to witbier fashion but there is a harsh taste of hay or grain that makes this beer not as easy to quaff down compared to most other traditional wits. None the less, this is more flavorful wit in the end and my score resembles that.

Thanks to Travlr for sharing this one. 75 cl. bottle sampled. Quite curious & have been for a long time to try DFH. This is witbier made with dried orange slices, fresh cut lemongrass and some coriander so not too far from the original definition of the style safe for perhaps the lemongrass. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Smells of sweet fluffy wheat, herbs, coriander, bitter herbs, lemon and sweet floral. Taste is soft fluffy wheat, fluffy, airy, lemongrass, lemon, soft yeast & fruits, floral with some bitter herbs, some citrus, spices in the back. Lovely fitting higher carb. airy quite a fine witbeer. One of the finer ones I have had. Does feel a bit lacking because with all the back-story, interesting ingredient etc. you get a bit more pumped up & expect more. Without that, I would be less interested in trying this but more exited afterwards. Still lovely.

sebletitje (9636) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 20, 2013
75cl bottle sample @ RBBWG 2013, courtesy of Travlr. Dore, foin lger trouble, col blanc. Arme est bien parfum alternant citronnelle, corce dorange, coriandre, grains et levure. Palais reste dans le style belge blanche, avec ici une belle part venant de cette citronnelle et ce ct presque de riz souffl ainsi que un ajout orang. Le tout est couronn par une fine pointe dpice; coriandre pour une bire facile boire et rafraichissante. Fini reste sec, grains et fruit. Reste en dfinitif une belle interprtation du style avec un petit qcq chose en plus.

Benzai (14789) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2013
Sampled from bottle @ RBBWG 2013. Hazy pale yellow color, medium sized white head that lasts for a decent while. Smell wheat, some herbs or spices, some lemon influence, slightly yeast. Taste wheat, slightly yeast, again a touch of lemon or lemonpeel, slightly herbs or spices. Medium body and carbonation. Quite nice.

marcus (9687) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle from City Beer. Pours cloudy yellow/white with a huge white head and a wheat and citrus aroma. There is a light wheat flavor with a lemon and coriander finish. The spicing is more subtle than in most witbiers, making this a refreshing but low taste beer.

Bottle to pint glass Okay...thank you bottle, I get coriander, orange and lemon and let's throw in wheat and light dough. It's all there. It's not looking too appetizing as a sludgy yellow but it does have a nice bright white head. The taste is acidic a little bit sweet and some late back of the tongue bitterness. Medium bodied and very creamy. Nice, but I expect something spectacular in the Dogfish Head big bottle and this is just good.
