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.

Lovely phenolics hit the nose from the yeast. A very pale gold colour with a characteristic thin white head. The flavours have spices like coriander, and possibly cardamom popping out. A great beer indeed.

Bottled. Nice, light, refreshing white beer. Good notes of fruit and lemongrass. Thank you DFH for not making this over-the-top; you did well here.

Hazy yellow with dissipating head and nice lace. Smells od lemon orange clean straw and biscuits. Tastes like an anise biscuit and lemon zest, sweet but dry and palate cleansing. Super with a murrays cheese basket. Really refrshing and infinitely drinkable.

PorterPounder (7764) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square - 750 ml capped bottle. light golden pour, slightly cloudy, with a thin bubbly white head that clings to the edges. Cloves and coriander in the fragrant aroma. Flavor is pleasant and smooth, some white grape fruitiness. Light spiciness perks it up a bit - hints of coriander. Some yeastiness in the back end. Mouthfeel is pleasantly thick. Overall, decent - but not worthy of a $13.99 price tag.

Dfonorow (2212) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2011
On tap at Rattle N Hum. Pour is dull straw/hay color with a large white head. Aroma is of mild citrus with hints of spices, yeast, and lighter fruits. The taste is mostly of oranges and wheat with some spice dull yeast in the finish. Light to medium bodied. Not my favorite style, but a good representation of it.

arondee (601) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 2, 2011
Pours a cloudy yellow color with a medium white head. Aromas are orange peels and lemon. The taste is fantastic, a perfect balance of orange, lemon, and spices. Better than hoegaarden, probably the best white Ive ever had.

Draft. Pours golden yellow with a white head. Flowery aroma with spicy and citric notes. The flavor has a grainy base, with coriander, citrus, flowery notes, and spices. Good stuff.

A bit weak and watery. Some clove...and not much else to me. Had this on tap, and was writing these ratings down expecting to see a low score when I got online. I must be missing something based on the general population. Just didnt do it for me - was expecting something greater from Dogfish Head.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 27, 2011
The pour is a hazy, gold color with a fairly small, white, creamy head which is mostly diminishing and leaves minimal lace. The nose is pleasant with lots of citrus (orange, lemon), coriander, some grass, light clove, doughy yeast, and light grains. The flavor is similar but less appealing; very clovey and grainy, some lemon and coriander, maybe a faint vanilla note. The palate is light to medium, lively, mildly refreshing, and a bit creamy. The beer finishes dry, short, and and still phenolic with clove, lemony still, and some grass to keep from cloying. Fairly standard wit with all the typical notes but nothing to set it apart or make me want to try another. Not my favorite style but still just lacked any real character.
