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.

3.48/5  rDev -7.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours hazy, almost turbid, pale yellow with a scant white head and no lacing.

The aroma is very subtle and would be undistinguishable unless in a neutral environment. There is light clove and coriander, even some honey, but all is just barely detectable.

The flavor is grainy with light coriander and a little muddy. Again, the flavors are all quite muted. The finish is rather messy.

Namaste has a medium to light body and is a bit chalky with no alcohol.

Easily consumable and thirst quenching. This is a fine beer for a muggy day.

Namaste - 2011 1083 from notes

A- Slight hazy golden straw pour, tiny chunks floating around in suspension. Three finger fluffy white head recedes to thin cap quickly. Lacing is awesome.

S- Lemon and oranges, yeast and typical wheat beers.

T- Lemon and oranges, earthy grass notes. Typical wit taste.

M- Medium to thin bodied, lively carbonation.

O- Nothing special, nothing wowing, just an alright beer, strange for dfh not adding their own flair to this.

4.15/5  rDev +10.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours clouded lemon-drop yellow with a large white, foamy head.

The smell is of pepper, coriander, sugar-coated oranges and lemongrass. Spicy and tangy.

The taste is bright - orange tang with a coriander spicing.

The carbonation is lively, sprizty, and crisp.

A nice, fresh, witbier with an orange flavor (no need for an orange wedge - though that's not my thing anyway). A very nice example of the style, though pricey for what it is.
