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 - Pours a clear golden-yellow with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down fairly slowly leaving behind some good lace.

S - Aroma is full of citrus, orange, and lemon, with some lemongrass, wheat, coriander and other spices, and some wheat.

T - Starts off with some light tart lemon zest, alongside some orange and other citrus flavors and some lemongrass. Through the middle, some wheat comes through alongside some Belgian yeast, coriander, and other spices. The finish is a mix of orange, lemongrass, coriander, and wheat.

M - Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry, lightly tart and spicy finish.

D - Very drinkable. Very crisp and refreshing as well. Good mix of being light but full of flavor. Really like the lemongrass and orange flavor.

Dogfish Head Namaste is a cloudy, pale yellow beer with small particles in it. It's topped with a fluffy, bubbly head that has great retention and lacing. It has an overpowering lemongrass aroma. There's a little trace of orange peel and a hint of something beer-like-- maybe wheat. It's light bodied and velvety smooth with a clean, dry finish. It's lightly flavored. It's sort of like lemongrass tea meets a Wit. There's not really any bitterness to speak of. It's perhaps a touch sweet. There isn't much aftertaste. I feel like I would enjoy this much more if I was sipping it outside in some hot weather. It's really mellow and incredibly inoffensive.

Pours a five+ finger white head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Hazy straw color. Strong carbonation and light-medium bodied. Orange and lemon grass nose and flavor is orange, lemon grass some tartness. Good Summer drink. $10.99 for a 750ml bottle from Julio's Liquors Westborough, Ma.

Poured a hazy orange-gold with a finger of bright white head. Light aroma of lemon, wheat, orange peel, and maybe a hint of lemongrass.

Highish carbonation and a creamy, light mouthfeel. Wheat and gentle lemon up front followed by a hint of pepper and a burst of slightly sweet orange on the tail end.

Balanced, dry, and refreshing and still packs a good deal of flavor.
