Belgian witbier tasting notes 3

Tonight's entry in the Belgian witbier tasting series (part 1 and part 2) was the Brasserie du Bocq Blanche de Namur. It is bottle-conditioned, highly carbonated, has a rapidly diminishing head, and is brewed with licorice in addition to the orange rind and coriander. The licorice is a subtle but interesting and pleasant addition. It is very smooth and has an unusual dry mouthfeel. Good balance. It's low alcohol at 4.5% and quite quaffable. One of my favorites.
