Poured into weizen glass. Lovely pale yellow. Thin white head that gives to a ring.

Coriander nose w/ light peppercorn spice as it warms up.

Taste is mostly classic wit, but the orange is extra creamy. Spice is in the finish.

Smooth mouth. Sooooo drinkable.

Not too different from your average Belgian white, but also more complicated than it initially seems. Refreshing, serviceable witbier from the Heads of Dogfish.

Pours a very pale and hazy yellow. Nice white frothy head that dissipates to a thin line. Good lacing. Sweet citrusy smell. Spicy upon arrival with a lemony and orange zesty citrus flavor. Nice malt background and mildly hopped. Mouthfeel is on the thin side. This is a decent summer time beer that will quench your thirst. Nothing outstanding, but better than your average AAL.

Poured from a bottle into a glass.

Refreshing. A little hazy. Tawny. Low on bitterness and unpleasant twang. High on coriander and lemongrass. A subtle citrus hint. An overall sweet note akin to honeysuckle. A great wit.

Pours a hazy pale gold with a tight white bubbly head.

smells of musty yeast, orange, and an earthy, floral bouquet.

Taste of orange, yeasty bread and bright citrus floral hops. A very lively mouthfeel.

Slightly hazy straw color, white head, not so great retention but excellent lace. Not that I drink a ton of wits, but this is probably the clearest I've had
Fresh citrus and coriander aroma, with a bit of raw wheat background
Super refreshing! Orange and coriander come through, as well as the wheat
Full without being heavy, spritzy carbonation
Pretty dang good beer for hot, humid days

Had this on tap. Straw and apple on the nose, kind of like a pilsner in that sense. Less yeasty or sweet than a Hoegaarden with heavier coriander and pepper than most witbiers. Wouldn't mind having this in winter as well to be honest.

I really like this beer. Allagsh is currently my favorite Witbeer, but Namaste is very unique and just a hair behind if at all. You should definitely not hesitate to buy and enjoy it.
