Belgian-style wit brewed with orange flesh, orange peel, lemongrass, coriander, and peppercorns. Poured from a bottle into a New Belgium snifter. The pour is hazy and very light orange in color with very thin head that has poor retention. The nose is husky and herbal with notes of lemon, thyme, hay, and dry crackers.

Light body with a thin feel. Up front I get fresh bread, lemon candy, and herbal tea. Very low bitterness. Towards the back of the palate, the lemon continues to build along with the sweetness. Finishes sweet and fruity with a lingering lemon and honey flavor. I think a wit should be more tart and not as sweet as this one. Nevertheless, this would make a nice introductory beer for someone who is new to craft and not used to having so much flavor in their beer.

Namaste White has a thick, white head, a mostly clear, yellow-gold appearance, which presents a descending yellow-gray cloud, following the "swish & pour", and fairly pronounced glass lacing. Aroma is of faintly peppery & spicy white wheat bread, and the flavor is of those elements, with the coriander, bubble gum, and tap water. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Namaste finishes dry and somewhat inferior to Blue Moon, which should be an indication of my regard for it.

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!
