A Beer That Bows To You?

Dogfish Head Brewery has quite a variety of (and reputation for) unusual brews. One of those is called Namaste, which is also the Hindi greeting among individuals when meeting or parting, mostly on the Indian Subcontinent. The literal translation (according to Wikipedia) is "I bow to you."
How Dogfish came to produce this beer is best left to them to explain, which they do here.

Dogfish's website describes the beer as
     "A witbier bursting with good karma. Made with dried organic orange slices, fresh-cut lemongrass and a bit of coriander, this Belgian-style white beer is a great thirst quencher."
Since Dogfish can be hard to come by here on the left coast, even in Sonoma County, the beer haven of the Bay Area, I have not had the opportunity to sample Namaste, but I will put it on my list of beers to try and as soon as I do, I will report back.
