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.

Reviewed 9-11-10. I guess this is one of their MANY summer seasonals. I split this one with my wife: Ap: Very light, almost peach colored, cloudy, with about a 1 inch head. Very appropriate for the style. Ar: Coriander first, then lemon, orange, and with a hint of pepper. I also detected a very faint grassy sort of aroma. T: Earthy with a capital "E!" This really didn’t even taste like an alcoholic beverage at all, and all of the blended ingredients really work! The coriander really keeps the citrus in check and keeps it from being too "hot." P: Bubbly, champagne-like, and with a very frothy lacing. Also, the head never subsided throughout the entire session. O: I really admire the understated nature of this brew. Lots of ingredients are listed, and on the first taste, I was initially let down. After a few more sips, study, and contemplation, the brewers’ intention started to hit me in a revelatory way. A great summer Witbier. My wife hated it of course....just like she does most beer. Oh well....

Smells pleasant, smooth going down, but not a very unique flavor arrangement. It was overall pleasant but not something I would depict as a must try. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear, light, yellow-golden with a white head with an aroma of orange, lemon, bread and yeast. It tastes of orange, coriander and lemon with a hint of banana and bubblegum from the yeast. It's light bodied with fairly lively carbonation. It's also slightly sweet.

Pours black and oily with a quickly disappearing coffee brown head. Nose is bitter chocolate, malts and coffee.on the palate the chocolate and coffee notes remain but are supported by a massive lactose sweetness hit. The sweetness continues in the finish along with a nice hop bitterness and alcohol warmth. Perhaps slightly too sweet for my tastes but this would be splitting hairs as this is a very accomplished, delicious dessert stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours orange hazy with nice carbonation. This is one of my favorite Belgian style beers I’ve had in a long time. The flavor is so balanced and smooth ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poors very clear, no yeast residue, aroma and taste wheat, rich taste of oranges, spices, some yeast in taste. Well balanced, very crisp and refreshing, slightly watery though. Decent complexity for a witbier, aftertaste a bit watery as well.

Picked this one up at the grocery store on a trip to refill the fridge and continue our beer-a-day streak. It is kind of like a Hoegaarden only has a bit more spicy to it; the aroma is orange peel and wheat and dandelion, the appearance is light yellow, and the palate is light and refreshing. Tastes like your generic wheat beer with some nice cloves / spice added in. Good for Sirk movie night the second and cuddles with your cutie.

Tastes fruity. Like an upgraded summer shandy. Smooth and light. I need 75 words to complete this review so I will say random shit to complete it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wheat beers are generally a dime a dozen AFAI'mC but it throws in a nice orange tinge and a decent creaminess, drinkable for sure
