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.

great label... consumed 3/28/11. sunshine color with a soft soapy white head. drippy lace follows. aromas of matches/sulfur, orange, coriander/dust, wheat, florals and yeast. the flavor is kinda soapy... not floor cleaner but the lemongrass really makes it seem synthetic. the surprising amount of lemongrass mixes with the notes from the aroma to make the flavor. it is mellow and soft.... quite unlike any dfh beer ive ever had. the aftertaste/burps afterward are of lemongrass and canned oj. refreshing. no yeasty business in the aftertastes as well. it has a clean mouth feel....lacking the typical sludge of the style. this would be a great summer session if it weren’t for the price tag ($9 for a bomber of 5% beer.... come off it) 7/4/7/4/15

A bit too spicy and too sweet. Could have used something to dry out the finish and balance it out a bit. Spices were muddled and conflicting and the orange flavor was too potent. blah

750 ml bottle served in a tulip. Pour is hazy gold/orange with 3 billowing fingers of white head. Nose is coriander, oranges, lemons, and fresh cut grass. Taste is spot on, but all those wit flavors aren’t over the top, which makes this one really tasty for my palate. This bottle has been sitting for quite some time, maybe a year or so, which could account for it’s toned down "balance" that I find so enjoyable. I wonder how I would rate a fresh bottle, not being a fan of the style?

One of the better DFH beers, quite friendly and easy going. On tap at the house of 1000 beers. Has a slight candy aroma to it, nicely appetizing. Very light palate. Almost watery in body, but is a good way. One of their lightest beers that I can recollect. Pretyy good sizzle on the tongue. Could be a decent session brew. Tasted a lot of DFH today, by far this was the best.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2011 Blonde haze color with a white foamy head. Smells of orange zest and a bit of coriander. Refreshing taste with a slightly dry finish. Label says a great summer beer, but reminds me more of holiday flavors.

Hazy yellow-orange with a medium sized white head. Aromas of orange zest, lemongrass, and light corriander. Soft yeasty attack, light body, prickly carbonation, and a citric dry finish. Very nice.

Bottle. Pours a pale gold yellow with small white head. Lots of little floaties in there too. Low carbonation. Aroma of wheat and citrus fruits. Flavor is banana, and mildly tart lemon and a hint of orange. Delicious, would have been great to have in the summer time.
