Maybe I just don't like Belgians, is what I'm starting to think. But this beer had a weird yeasty, papery taste that just didn't taste very good to me a all.

Pours clear, color is light, looks like straw. Smooth citrus taste. Namaste is refreshing, and makes for a great summer/outdoor drink. The kind of beer I could fill a swimming pool with!

L — Pours a slightly hazed straw body with a solid white head that retains and laces beautifully. Good amount of visible effervescence
S — Pilsner malts, tomato, coriander, lemon, wheat, garden herbs
T — Pilsner malts, honey, clove, coriander, wheaty tartness, and a hint of coriander
F — Fluffy and easy drinking. Medium- mouthfeel, medium carb.
O — The mouthfeel is a lot nicer on tap than from the bottle. Definitely one of my favorite wits.

Pours an effervescent gold with a sliver of cream colored head that rapidly falls away. Stays effervescent, minimal head retention & lacing

S: Green banana peel & juicy fruit

T: Follows the nose, also a little rubber band & white pepper up front, a hint of orange peel as well. Slight dryness & more green banana peel as this warms. Finishes with juicy fruit & a little bit of wheatyness

MF: Light body, pretty firm carbonation

Drinkable, a pretty good take on the style

Straw colored and somewhat hazy with a quickly thinning white head from an aggressive pour. Standard Belgian yeasty scent with some sweetness to the nose. Tastes like a wit some twang and some sweetness and a bready and biscuit malt finish. Pretty well carbonated and almost a bit creamy on the feel. This beer is well put together and pretty tasty but I was hoping for a little more of something from the flavor.
