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.

Bottle shared by a friend. Hazy lemonade yellow color with a medium white head. Aroma of Belgian esters (banana), slight citrus and spice. Banana and lemon flavor with some sweetness and a spicy finish.

Cloudy in appearance. Golden in color with a frothy, white head. Lacing is poor. The aroma is a cross between the more dominate aroma orange and lemon. There is some sort of a spice hidden in the aroma but I cant point it out. The texture is slick with medium carbonation. You can taste orange in the beginning and finishes with a smooth, sweet and salty taste. This beer was very enjoyable and light. Perfect for summer time.

750ml from winooski beverages in winooski vermont. Yellow pour with a sloght haze, and a big fluffy wite head. Big aroma of corriander, and malted wheat with a citrus punch. The flavor is quite wheaty and yeasty with a nice sharp citrus/hop finish. The bitterness is very low, and this is quite refreshing. Nice patio beer.

A light orangish body with a fizzy white head. A very refreshing coriander and orange zest flavor that is extremely light and crisp. A fine beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kathouse (1741) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Hazy yellow from the tap. White foam leaves good lacings. Aroma of orange and spice. Extremely light body with low carbonation. Low malt sweetness and citrus. I can taste the hops in the finish but otherwise not much to this one.

Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Bottle. Yellow hazy with light head. Taste like a Belgium. Got it for a pool day. Tasty but not a favorite. It I refreshing. All I taste is the coriander. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HighlanderOne (1264) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Poured from big bottle. Smells like orange Popsicle with a hint of lemon. Cloudy orange with thin white head. Orange and coriander lead in the flavor, with a touch of tangy lemon and pepper. Rind and grass in the aftertaste. Carbonation balances nicely with the citrus flavors for good drinkability. Well done.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2014 On tap. Mostly hazy yellow color. Good thin white head, leaving good lace. Very nice soft carbonation and dry texture. Nice coriander spice nose. Nice light spice taste. Nice belgian white type yeast aromas. Good zesty sweet taste. Very well done belgian wit, worthy of a large-format bottle (the price would put me off of a repeat tasting, though) 7/5/7/4/15

Re-rate, 1/12/14: 12oz bottle. I like that they switched this to 6 packs. Never had this from the 750ml bottle, so I cant really comment on how that compares, but I remember it being amazing on tap... 12oz bottle is labeled 4.8%. Has the recipe changed at all? Pours with a golden yellow color, almost entirely hazy with fine particles suspended in the body. Thin white head. Leaves loose bits of lace. Medium body. Kind of a lightly soft, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick in taste, then more dry in the finish. Good bright zesty citrus peel aroma, nice lemongrass, light spice. Nice, bright big flavor, exactly what I like in a witbier. Mild belgian yeast character. Moderate sweet taste, lightly spicy, some good zest. Pretty bright, refreshing, and tasty. A good belgian witbier, and above average. Good wit yeast, orange, and lemongrass in the lingering aftertaste. Flavorful, for how light it is.

Thechasm442 (911) - Chicago heights, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Poured from a bottle to an English pint glass. Hazy blonde with a thick frothy white head that recedes with nice lacing. Aroma is orange peel, lemon, coriander. Flavor is the same. Theres also pepper in the finish. Thin mouthfeel. Nice summer beer.

BeerGolem (814) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2012
Pours hazy blonde with no head. Aroma: spices (coriander), malts, yeasts. Taste is sweet with some acidity on the finish. No aftertaste. On the palate, it feels like mineral water or Canada dry; good carbonation. Refrshing beer. Not being very fond on Witbier, I must say that this one is really good. Robe blonde trouble. Pas de collet. Arme: pices (coriandre), malts, levures. Got sucr, avec une finale acide. Pas darrire-got. En bouche, cette bire fait leffet deau minrale ou de Canada Dry. Bonne carbonatation. Rafrachissante. Ntant pas pas un fan de Witbier, je dois dire que celle-ci a ben de lallure.
