I really like this beer. One of my favorites in the summer. People compare it to Blue Moon. Not as much orange taste and more spices. You get the citrus up front, but then the aftertaste is lemongrass and spice. Clearer than Blue Moon. A bit expensive for what it is. For the same price you can get the 60min IPA. But then again Blue Moon is almost as expensive. I think both the Namaste and Blue Moon are way better than Allagash White, which is also twice as expensive.

A decent witbier from DFH. I would have preferred a little more spice/coriander character, but if you want a refreshing, sessionable, non-offensive ale, this is great.
