3xB: Dogfish Head Namaste
This Week’s Big Bottle: Dogfish Head Namaste
The Dogfish Head Namaste is listed as a beer brewed with coriander, orange and lemongrass. This beer sounded like a perfect refreshing summer beer. I was not disappointed.
The beer was a pale yellow and quite cloudy…typical wheat beer.
The aroma was a bit subtle but mostly dominated by some wheat and coriander.
The flavor was crisp with a strong wheat and coriander start and finished with a slightly bitter citrus flavor. I couldn’t really correlate the normal citrus flavor to the lemon grass, but I could definitely taste some of the orange in the finish.
Overall this was a perfect summer beer with its smooth refreshing flavors or as the bottle says, “A refreshing summer thing, Namaste.” I’d give it a 7.5; keep up the great work Dogfish Head!
