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!

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, 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
