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.

Batch number TJ14126-2. Best by date: 02-2015.

Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy orange-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of wheat, grain, earth, spice, and herb aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour wheat, grain, spice, and herb flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness and acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty with a nice slight tart flavor that makes this one easy to drink despite its higher ABV for the style.

Serving type: bottle.

Bottle: Poured a hazy dirty beige color ale with a huge white foamy head with super good retention and some very good lacing. Aroma of cardamom and coriander is incredibly well balance with some dry wheat malt notes and light fruity ester. Taste is also dominated by loads of fruity ester with well balanced spicing with clear notes cardamom and coriander. Wheat malt is solid without being too sweet which is often the case with double wit. Another beautiful beer form Boulevard which keep surprising me with the quality of their offering.

Appearance - Hazy orange / amber color that is moderately opaque with light carbonation. Head is about one half finger after the pour and dissipates quickly leaving very little lacing.

Smell - Lots of citrus notes here, some traces of malt and perfume but the dominating characteristic is vitamin C.

Taste - Oranges, herbal notes, tartness, and an aftertaste of damp wheat. Much more flavorful than a typical wit beer and comes off closer to a saison in flavor due to the funkiness and sour notes. The flavor is powerful up front and at the finish but the wheat flavor is what lingers most

Mouthfeel - Drinks very easily and smoothly although is a bit chewier than most of the style. Very light on the carbonation letting it go down easily.

Overall - An unique take on the style and thoroughly enjoyable throughout. The balance is a bit off with the citrus not making way for some of the spice characteristics, but if you enjoy saisons or sours this may be one that you'd want to seek out. I would drink it again, but one glass in a sitting is all that would retain my interest.

Not a bad beer, just not a lot of what I would expect in a Witbier. Pours a cloudy apricot color with an average size white head. Average retention and a little lacing on the glass. The aroma and taste are both malty and lemony with the spices prominently featured, coriander and lavender are particularly pronounced. The wheat bitterness is almost lacking.

Mouthfeel is fairly rich and the alcohol is well masked. Not a bad beer but not quite the "Witbier on steroids" that I was expecting.
