BEER NUMBER 4: after this, 95 BEERS LEFT BEFORE COLLEGE FOOTBALL SEASON...
Namaste White is a "Belgian style White Ale brewed with dried organic orange flesh and peel, fresh-cut lemongrass, a bit of coriander, peppercorns and a healthy dose of good karma." It has 4.8% alcohol by volume and I think it's about 20 IBU according to one source.
This beer has a lot going on, it's light, has some bitterness, some spiciness and a bit of citrus flavor. It's getting good reviews on sources such as beeradvocate.com and such. I am no professional reviewer, I don't pretend to be one, I'm just doing this for kicks... and personally, this beer is not my cup of tea. I'm thinking it's the peppercorns that I don't care for, and I generally peppercorn flavor (in anything but beer it seems). I can understand that it would have appeal to certain tastes, but for me 5 ounces was enough, I'll see what my wife thinks about the rest... well, she had some, thought it was a bit "smokey and interesting", it's certainly different from what we've had generally.
