Appearance is a cloudy light straw with a finger of head that quickly dissipated down to a thin film. The nose had the essence of wheat and a pinch of Belgian funk. The flavor is light and mild with the wheat upfront and a finish that is dry and slightly peppery.

750 ml bottle. Pours cloudy golden hue with a foamy, lasting white head. Aroma is of musty yeast, citrus fruit with hints of grass and spices. Full, creamy, slightly crisp body. Citrus fruit, spices, Belgium yeast and candy sugar combine on the palate. Medium, semi-sweet finish. I’m not a fan of wits, but this one I like.

Faintly hazed bright orange yellow glow. Creamy and craggy bright white head about 2 fingers high. Smells heavily of orange zest, lots of spicy yeast, a bit of clove, faint touch of banana.
Wow. Superb, cant wait to guzzle down sixers of these come summer. Creamy and birstly mouthfeel, Dry grainy husk flavor throughout, sharp wheat, some tart citrus flavors with a bit of grassyness and a super dry grainy finish with hearty wheat bread flavors lingering in the mouth. A touch of pucker, a lot of flavor, and intensely refreshing.

Poured into a pint glass at 40 degrees.
Appearance: A one finger head that is billowy, fluffy, and creamy. The head is white in color with fair retention. The color of beer a pale yellow with some really light yellow hues. The clarity of the beer is cloudy, probably from yeast.
Nose: The grain notes are pushing past the lemon, orange, and grass notes. Other aromas in the beer is honey, vanilla, coriander, herbal, pepper, and floral esters.
Taste: The beer grain note is lightly toasted, and grassy. The flavors in the beer is lemon, orange, honey, vanilla, coriander, herbal, peppers and floral esters. The lemon grass pops out at the very end, letting you know it is in the beer.
Mouth feel of the beer is carbonated, slightly astringent, and crisp.
Overall: The body of the beer is medium light and the finish is medium. This beer has lots of flavor, but to me, seems as if the beer is discombobulated in taste. Flavors are here and there, lacking uniformity. Solid beer nonetheless.

Namaste pours a beautiful, slightly cloudy straw yellow with ample carbonation that produces a soft white head full of tiny bubbles. The head stays around forever and leaves some goopy lace on the sides of the glass. The aroma is sweet with notes of honey, lemon zest, orange, wheat, bready yeast and a touch of white pepper. The flavor is very refined and very tasty with a very sweet, yet also slightly tart wheat malt background. It is lemony and spicy with hints of white pepper and coriander and is very refreshing. It is well balanced and all of the flavors play off of each other very well. For being a fairly sweet beer, it is impressive how thirst quenching it is. It has a fairly light and creamy mouthfeel that has a tart and refreshing finish. Very drinkable and a beer that I am glad came in a large bottle.

750 mL bottle, served straight from the fridge in my Duvel tulip.
Namaste pours a hazy tangerine, it seems a shade or two darker than most wits that I've had. The pristine white head rises up to about three fingers in height, and shows tremendous resilience. Lacing is a bit sparse though. The nose is very lemony, with coriander as the primary supporting aroma rather than orange. The flavor is quite crisp, yet dominated entirely by yeast/spice notes. Lemongrass's influence is still the star here, though the flavor seems a bit more citrusy than the nose. Coriander is still present as a background note again. The body is nice and light and the carbonation starts out incredibly lively but dies down by the back end of each sip and avoids being too fizzy. Lemongrass is a wonderful addition to the standard witbier flavors, and helps make this one of my absolute favorite warm weather beers. As much as I do like Festina Peche, I find myself wishing this was available in 12oz bottles all summer.
