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.

Bottle. Hazy light yellow with a fluffy white head. Bready orange corriander and lemon grass aroma and taste with a soft palate and a clean finish. Good warm weather beer.

Pours a hazy gold with a medium head. The aroma is very light and fruity with hints of orange peel and lemon grass upfront with a bit of coriander on the back end. The taste is a very light bitterness. The palate has lively carbonation and it feels like it has a thin texture. Overall, a pretty good beer for the summer. Nice, light and easy to drink. Franks

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.

Kind of lemongrassy, watery and seems like the yeast doesnt have enough content to work with here. Liked everything else at the brewpub though.

rhialistic (156) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 30, 2012
On tap, pours a cloudy lemon yellow with a thick white head and plenty of lace. Aromas of lemongrass, coriander, some esters. Very yeasty/bready grain taste, disappointingly so. Light creamy mouthfeel with a yeasty finish.

On tap at Dogfish Head Rehoboth. Cloudy yellow with a white head. Nose is wheat, toffee and grass. Medium light with a tingle. Taste is light honey and lemon with hints of coriander. A bit washed out but good on a hot day.

Good summer beer if your Into whites with a more citrus-y taste on the tongue, and a little bit of creamy flavor as its going down.

superspak (5103) - Michigan, USA - JUL 20, 2012
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 2012 C. Pours very hazy golden amber color with a nice 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Some nice soapy lacing clings to the glass, with a fair amount of carbonation streaming up. Aromas of big lemon, orange peel, clove, pepper, herbal, coriander, wheat, earth, grass, and yeast spiciness. Very nice and well balanced aromas with good complexity. Very pleasant and enjoyable. Taste of lemon, orange zest, clove, grass, pepper, coriander, wheat, earth, and yeast spices. Light wheat tang on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, coriander, wheat, clove, pepper, grass, earth, and yeast spices on the finish for a short bit. Fairly dry on the finish as expected. Nice flavor balance and complexity; with a nice level of flavors. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a slightly slick, crisp, and prickly mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with pretty much zero warming noticed at all. Overall this is simply just an excellent witbier. Great flavor balance and complexity; and extremely smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

Boutip (6130) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2012
Bottle: Poured a dirty yellow color ale with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of coriander and solid wheat malt with just the right amount of lemongrass is very enticing. Taste is a great mix between some coriander and slightly sweet wheat malt with good notes of lemongrass which really works well into the mix. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Really enjoyed this one with great amount of wheat malt and lemongrass bringing something unique to this mix.
