Notes/Commercial Description:
They say there are two sides to every story, and that’s certainly true of Two Jokers Double-Wit. On the one hand, it’s a revival of the classic Belgian “wit,” or “white” ale, with lactic fermentation providing a refreshing tartness. On the other hand, it’s a modern, uniquely American brew; big, flavorful, and spiced with cardamom, coriander, orange peel, lavender, and grains of paradise.

Pours hazy golden (but is more clear as it reaches the bottom) with a tiny bit of pale orange as well. Effervescent bubbles keep a thin film on the surface and a nice amount of foam on the edges. A sniff brings a little tartness (seems like Brett to me, although the description doesn't mention it). Lemon and orange, as well as some earthy spice that I assume us the cardamom, and a bit of the lilac comes through. Overall, however, the smell seems a bit dull for all it has going on.

The initial taste is the citrus from the smell combined with a hint of banana. The tangy taste from the souring agent brings the full taste to remind me of lemon yogurt. The taste is mellowed with a nice earthy back that takes its time to remove the tangy initial tastes.

As a wit it's a bit tart; as a sour, it's a bit weak; as a combination, it seems just a bit confused. That said, there's really nothing wrong, but it didn't really work for me.

Two Jokers pours a hazy golden color with a very small head. There is a very big bold aroma, lots of sweet Belgian candy notes, hints of orange. The taste has big notes of orange, various spices, Belgian candies, and finishes with first a tartness, then a creamy wheat flavor. A little flat, but big flavors. Overall its very flavorful, nice fruit flavors, not overly sweet. Good stuff.

I was intrigued by the idea of “double” wit. Double as in Imperial, à la DIPA? Nope, this benefits from some souring (which I have yet to experience to such a degree in a witbier) and spice additions.

Pours an effervescent dull gold.
Smells strongly of lactic acid, wheat, and orange zest.
The taste on the forefront is an interesting juxtaposition of sweet and tart with notes of lemon citrus with a big wheat kick on the end. The wheat also adds slickness to the mouthfeel.
Very refreshing.
