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.

22 ounce bomber. Its about 75 degrees and sunny outside, so to celebrate that spring has sprung Im digging a rarity from Dogfish out of the back of the fridge. Namaste pours a hazy light gold, with a nice pillowy head that dissipates pretty quickly. Lots of little floaties remain in my glass. Not sure if thats yeast, spice, or something else. Rustic is probably the best and kindest - way to describe the appearance. Has the hallmark smell of a classic witbier, with notes of coriander and light citrusy orange peel the first things I pick up in the nose. Im also getting a lemon character which I can only assume is the lemongrass. First taste is quite nice, as the beer has a certain thirst quenching impact, in that it hits the tongue and quickly washes to the sides of the mouth and down the throat almost too fast. Musky wheat malt holds up the structure of the beer from the onset, before its washed away by a cavalcade of spice and citrus. Yeast lends a slightly tart, almost sour note in a supporting role. The after finish is pleasant lemon pith. The beer finishes dry, with a hint of spicy carbonation, which leaves you wanting to go back to it and drink some more. Wits can often be heavy handed in the spice department, though that is not the case with Namaste, which arrives at a nearly perfect balance between the signature spices and the wheat and hops behind them. Kudos to the brewer, though the lengthy cellaring time may have had something to do with it as well. Despite the somewhat awkward appearance at the beginning, the beer is actually quite good, and certainly hits the spot on a warm spring day.

Citrus-o-rama. A great thirst quencher. Light and refreshing yet still has plenty of flavor. Reviewed - A Brew With You, Ep. 70

Draft at the Hilton in Delaware. Aroma is the expected clove, banana, bubble gum, spice, yeasty esters. Creamy smooth palate, lightly hopped, bit of white pepper dryness on the finish.

Bottle. A- Pinto beans, plastic. A- Yellow color, cloudy liquid, white head. T- Ham and bean soup, subtle lemongrass, mild white pepper. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish. O- Really good but really odd. Dont get hardly any of the ingredients listed like peppercorns, coriander, lemongrass, or orange. It reminds me a ton of pinto bean and ham soup I ate growing up. So odd but tasty.

Pretty white head, golden body, with a pleasant aroma. To me tastes nearly identical to Allagash White. Has a spicy aftertaste, and overall a bit too spicy for my tastes. Could not taste the orange. Not fruity and not the type of beer I would consider thirst quenching.

bookman10 (1097) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - MAY 2, 2017
Pours a clear, light golden-yellow, with minimal head. Sort of an odd aroma--some grass, some fruit, and a weird, sour chemical touch. Flavor is marked by lemon and coriander and a touch of sourness.

Translucent Light yellow with thin white head. Aroma of wheat and light citrus. Taste of wheat, coriander, and a little lemon. Very light and watery. Would be a decent refreshing beer on a hot summer day.

Pours a clear gold with light white head and carbonation. A faint grain and lemon aroma. A sweet citrus taste heavy with grains, wheat, yeast and spices. A lingering dry grain aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
