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.

"A white beer brewed with orange slices, lemongrass coriander & peppercorns." Brewed in the style of a Belgian Witbier. Previously a rotating 750 ml. release, this beer has been promoted to a year round release and made available in 12 oz. 6 packs and draft.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a Dogfish Head Signature glass. Served above 48 degrees Fahrenheit.

Pours a crisp frothy head of an ecru white tone over a honey amber body with plentiful active carbonation. Retention is good, lacing is moderate and patchy. The aroma generates notes of sweetened wheat, coriander, bitter orange peel and a light grassy hop bouquet with a mild bitterness for an altogether potent and pleasant aroma. The flavor of the beer is a slightly less sweet wheat and pale malt blend with an effervescent coriander and orange rind zest on the finish, altogether slightly lighter bodied than the aroma predicted. The texture of Namaste is lightly chewy, thin, slightly dry. Carbonation is full and aggressive generating a crisp, busy mouthfeel. The body is medium for the style, light/medium overall. Balance is slightly effervescent and tart over sweet. Alcohol presence is very light and off characters are minimal to none. This highly drinkable Witbier takes the characters of orange peel and coriander to the next level, while keeping fairly light bodied and light on sweetness. As it stands, it's a very enjoyable take on the style, flavorful and bright. And with prices of six packs undercutting what a single 750 ml bottle once went for, there's never been a better time to give Namaste a try.

Pours a light almost clear gold with a mostly short-lasting white head. Very slight lacing. The aroma is also mild, but has nice fruit and grain notes. The taste is very similar with additional notes from the spices and herbs. The body is nicely weighted and holds the flavor well. A really good white ale.
