Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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.

15 IBU

Reviewed Nov 2011

In my Duvel Tulip. Pours a cloudy golden with two to three fingers of white head. Very pretty looking beer.

Aroma is bananas, cloves, gum, sweet and citrus fruits. Wheat and sugar, very inviting and complex.

The taste is an entirely different thing than the aroma. It’s sweet and sour, all the citrus comes out in it.

Palate is great! Good carbonation and rolls smoothly along the tongue. There isn’t much of an after taste to speak of.

Overall a very interesting brew. I’ve never encountered a beer that accomplishes what this does, giving off an aroma that isn’t anywhere close to the actual taste. Beautiful.

This is the first double wit I've ever had. Split four ways between me, my brother-in-law, my dad and my sister's boyfriend. Pours a hazy orange color with a bubbly head. Wheaty, citrusy in the nose. Taste is very light and refreshing for a double wit. Like the nose, it's wheaty and citrusy. A little bubbly in the mouth, but not overwhelming. Very tasty beer. Enjoying the smokestack immensely.

Kinda scared, couple of friends had this and said it sucked.

Pours a hazy orange with a three finger head that is gone in seconds. Hmmm, not a good start for a wheat based ale.

Aroma is almost herbal with a small amount of citrus and quite a bit of corriander. The fruityness from the yeast is very evident.

Flavors of citrus and grains of paradise hit right up front. Sharp zesty fruit and a very complex spice follow through. Carbonation is med-high and makes this very refreshing. You would never guess the 8% ABV if you did not know before hand.

Overall a fairly pleasing brew. Not sure what my buddies were expecting but it is a pretty well crafted beer. If anyone has had Boulevard ZON, don"t worry, this is actually good.

The Double Witbier style has always been a bit of a struggle for me because the jest of a Witbier is its drinkability. When we imperialize it, the drinkability is greatly diminished. Let's see about this one.

Right off the bat, I can tell that Two Jokers has retained it's golden-straw color and not been over caramelized in the boil; giving the impression of a more gentle and finess beverage. Light haze harks to the 'wit' part of the beer while the creamy, yet dainty, stark-white head retains well but has trouble in the lacing department.

Aromas ride the fence between a Witbier and a Belgian Tripel. Very fruity and spicy with phenolic hints of plastic and medicine. Still and sweet pilsner malt flavor finds inviting notes of confection sugars, orange zest, lemons, corriander, and cilantro.

Flavors portray the same characteristics both in intensity and balance as those in the nose. Fruits and phenols are very well balanced not to let either dominate. A nectar-honey like sweetness proceeds any graininess from the malts. Only a herbal hop earthiness deviates to the bitter or hoppy side. White pepper, acidity, and alcohol flavor adds complexity.

Sweet up front with the malts and residual sweetness, but slowly fades into dry, alcoholic warmth moments later. Spicy to the palate throughout and light prickling gives a lot of play to the surfaces of the mouth. Still, the beer fails to capture that ultimate powdery softness that classic Hoegaardens and Witkerke's exhibit.

Though it is a really nice beer it becomes an inigma that loosely connects to many Belgian varieties including Tripels, Saisons, Belgian Pales, and Witbiers. Good beer but I'm still not convinced that there is such thing as a good Double Witbier.

Thanks BlueOkie!

Pours a hazy dark golden orange color with slight darker golden yellow hues when held to a light source. Massive frothy 2.5 finger white head that slowly fades into a lasting ring.

Very spicy aroma with hints of peppery lemon zest and coriander. Lots of bready yeast and citrus fruit notes, mostly lemon and orange peel.

Medium body that is surprisingly tart and lactic with a huge spicy presence and citrus fruit notes all accompanied by a yeasty/bread presence. Crisp and refreshing with an almost unnoticeable alcohol presence. ABV is extremely well masked. Slight dry finish.

Very spicy up front with hints of cloves, coriander, cardamon, pepper and lemon zest and a yeasty/bread body with banana and citrus notes: lemon, orange peel, grapefruit and a subtle hop presence. Crisp and refreshing with a slight dry finish.

Received in trade from JosephLondon (thanks!) - poured from a 750mL (751mL actually) bottle into my Troubadour tulip glass. This is batch #2 from 2009, and #8 in the Smokestack Series.

Liquid is a bright, hazy mix of pumpkin and burnt orange with orange-peel highlights. A heavy muscular hill of off-white foam unfurls several fingers of merengue-like froth. Thick sudsy lacing is slowy dragged back down into the glass by the dense legs after the furious effervescence relinquishes its countervailing up-thrust. Looks a little more like a saison than a witbier.

Aroma is lightly sweet, honey-like, with a floral note. Rose-water, orange blossom. Very subdued.

Tart (lactic acid) and silky on the palate with an a cavalcade of flavors arriving one after the other - orange zest dominates initially followed by lemon, honey, wheat bread, then all the additives indicated on the label: coriander, cardamom, (grains of paradise?) and a hint of lavender in the finish (not too much, some brewers go overboard with this ingredient and the ale ends up bringing to mind fabric softener). Some phenolics from the yeast bring things to a conclusion, though the tartness and orange flavors are present throughout.

Mouthfeel is quite thick for a witbier, but not heavy. Creamy, somewhat warming, and highly carbonated. Very nice.

While I enjoy the powerful flavors in this, it seems to detract somewhat from the purity (and refreshing nature) of the style. Can't fault experimentation though, and overall this is a success.

Best by 2011. Fun. Beer is dark yellow with a slight haze. Big head and lots of carbonation. Head is medium and medium bubbles. Head leaves some lacing on the glass.

Aroma is strong with spice and a tea like aroma.

It's medium bodied. Spicy and dry. Strong coriander. Carbonation is nice in the mouth. It's drinkability is good, mouthfeel is ok.

A - Color is rich gold and cloudy; two fingers of frothy head with pretty good retention and some splotchy lacing.

S - Sweet, spicy, crisp and refreshing. Orange, cardamom, honey, clove and mild banana notes.

T - Follows the nose rather well. Upfront mostly just sweet and crisp. As it mellows on the palate a whirlwind of flavors come out; clove, banana, orange, cardamom and peppery notes are all there.

M - Crisp and light, but over carbonated for sure as once I actually got the cork out the beer came spewing out the top like it was a bottle on Champange or something...

D - Once again, crisp, light and refreshing. A very enjoyable brew, but nothing to jump up and down about.

Served from 750mL Smokestack champagne bottle to a Smokestack tulip. Batch 2011-2, best by 01-2012.

A: White, fluffy head that dies down quickly but sticks around. Straw in color with plenty of unfiltered particulate.

S: Doughy yeast, wheat, orange peel, coriander, slight banana.

T: Wheat forward with a very strong, very tart burst of apple and tangerine. Coriander, cardamom, and lavender spice the finish and cleanse the tartness. A peppery kick in the aftertaste as the brew warms.

M: Refreshing and light-medium bodied, this is a great summer brew, yet has enough body to be a nice beer any time of year. Active carbonation adds a nice zing to the finish along with the spices, but doesn't dry the mouth out at all. No hint that this is 8.0% as you enjoy it. Well done.

O: A very good witbier. I personally do not prefer the tartness of the citrus in the taste, but many likely will. Still a very nice wit that I will enjoy next summer!

Tried the Two Jokers at a beer tasting last night. I think this beer should be called a ginger beer…it has a huge ginger ale taste and smell with punch of lemon/lime big carbonation white foamy head not much lace. The beer is cloudy/hazed straw yellow color with massive carbonation. The high ABV is well hidden. The mouthfeelis medium to big body. Overall I would say this is a sipping beer.

Big thanks to JeepCop for this bottle...

A: Pours out a wonderfully bright translucent yellow two fingers of pure white head. The foam taste awhile to settle and there is a good amount of lacing left on the glass. Decent lacing as it drinks.

S: The nose smells of belgian yeast, wheat, lemons, oranges, and a touch of booze. There is a bit of earthiness to this beer, mainly grass, that I like.

T: It starts out sweet and fluffy on the palate. But as the beer makes it way towards the back of the mouth, the sour and tartness starts to come alive. It's big on the lemony citrus notes without being too overdone. I have to say that it was a nice tang to it. The finishes is that familiar belgian yeast taste. Part bubblegum, part candy cigarette, part funk.

M: Medium bodied beer. Don't be fooled by it's color, this beer has a bit of heft to it. The carbonation is spot on, and the flavors mingle nicely on the palate.

O: I think this is a really solid beer. It's smooth and creamy to start, but finishes tart and dry. I like it. I don't think I could drink this on the regular, but if I were in the mood for it, I'd seek it out. Another impressive offering from Boulevard.

750ml bottle $8.49. Vibrant, bright orange color. looks like a nectar, not much head when poured into a wine glass. Smells like citrus and tastes like biting into a powerful orange or nectarine, good stuff all around. This was the second American craft witbier I had today and they both deviated from the norm in a very good way.

Poured into Smokestack glass

Pours 1 finger of slight off white head. Decent retention, but no lace at all. Color is a very hazed orange mango. A very nice looking beer.

Aroma: Nice and yeasty with a lot of spices. Coriander, orange peel, and grains of paradise I guess. Very fresh.

Taste: Wow, this beer is a huge wit. Tons of wheat flavors and spices. Pretty much the same as the aroma, but with some alcohol mixed in.

Mouthfeel: Very spiced and crisp, refreshingly smooth. Medium bodied with a lot of carbonation. Ends with a dry spiced aftertaste.

Overall, this beer is big. I am glad I got a buddy to split it with because I would have a hard time with it by myself (just so many spice notes). But, for the abv, fairly drinkable I'd say.

S: Coriander, orange peel apparent, spicy, esters

A: Hazy golden yellow. Decent head and lacing

T: Citrus, multiple spices. Dry tart finish w/a little alcohol heat.

M/D: Smooth and silky. Smoothness I think related to wheat. Dry tartness but a little over-carbonated. This category could potentially be a 5 if this was corrected.

Overall: looking back I gave it 4's all around. Which means good. But the least fav of the Blvd smokestack beers I've had.

Acquired from davey, courtesy of the Local Goods 3 BIF so a big "Thank You" goes out to him. Poured from a 750ml bottle into an imperial pint glass.

A: The beer is a bright gold color, with a large white head that fades quickly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is of Belgian yeast, esters, wheat, citrus and some spices.

T: The taste starts out spicy with flavors of cloves and pepper. Then some fruity flavors of lemon & orange come in followed by mild breadiness from Belgian yeast and a hearty but not too heavy malt character, which provide a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly spicy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

D: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a good beer to drink for a while.

750ml into a tulip.

A: Deep murky orange, gold highlights, and a nice two finger frothy white head. Quite nice.

S: Like a bouquet of flowers. Lavender, and spice. Maybe some light breadiness.

T: Strong lavender. Spiciness of coriander and orange peel. Bread and notes of clove, a light sweetness.

M: Heavier than any other Wit i've had, but for 8% it's quite fluffy in the body. A small level of crispness takes over on the finish.

D: Very very nice big witbier. Boulevard continues to impress and surprise with this smokestack series, and this lavender and spice is no exception.

Good Good Good Good Good.

That's really all I have to say about this particular beer. Boulevard are able to churn out these beers like a beaver can churn out a suitable dam log. It's all good and useful and quite well appreciated but there aren't many dam logs you look at and say, "Man, that log is really something else!"

So yea, the appearance is good. Yellow haze with an orange tint that has some head and lacing. An aroma of pungent citrus, coriander, hops and grass. Very nice, a little off balance but still good. THe coriander and grass take over the taste. It's very off balance but still tastes pretty good. I'm beginning to think that Boulevard have a coriander fetish with its strong taste being the detriment to more than a couple beers by the boys in KC. Feels light and carbonated, almost too carbonated. Very drinkable and relaxing.

Now I'm done. Drink it for a pleasant evening when the beer shouldn't be the main attraction.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy peach nectar color with golden highlights; the head is impressive and leaves a nice clumpage of lace

Smell: Lemon, banana and lavendar elements dominate, with undertones of cardamom and coriander

Taste: Citrusy and tart, up front, with lemon, orange peel, pineapple and a growing banana element that challenges the citrus by mid-palate, when the spicy coriander, lavendar and grains of paradise arrive; although the tartness flourishes throughout, the finish brings an interesting bananas flambee sweetness

Mouthfeel: Medium body with lively carbonation and acidity

Drinkability: A fine example of the style, but I would not have thought it was a double wit; the alcohol is well disguised

Thanks, iasanlee, for the opportunity

750 mL corked and caged bottle courtesy of RedHaze - thanks!! Poured in to a cervoise.

Appearance: Pours a hazy, nearly opaque goldenrod, a honey mustard gamboge capped by one finger of fine eggshell head. The hue is dirty, muddy, a huge suggestive perhaps of its flavors and aromatics, appropriate but not necessarily that sort crisp, bright, beauty you want from a witbier. The head, however, is fantastic. Dense but fluffy, rocky but ethereal, the crown of mother-of-pearl cream has great retention, consistently replenished by slow carbonation that's barely visible through the morass that is this beer's interior. The lacing is one part glittery runs and one part clingy stick, and the end result is probably above average for this style and this this abv%.

Aroma: Freshly juiced oranges, pulpy and slightly sweet. A really earthy spice undertone, with definite tingly and aromatic hints of grains of paradise and stronger cardamom tweak and pull at the olfactory senses. All faintly sweet but largely dry, the dryness enhanced by the spicy earthiness.

Taste: Huge cardamom and cloves are my first impression, wrapped in a honey orange kiss. First, the malt base is obviously simple, and obviously on the sweet side, but it's actually not nearly as sweet (on the whole) as many doublewits and even wits are. There are plenty of well attenuated sugars here, like dry honey, graham cracker-esque, complemented by the spices. So, let's talk about the spices. I get tons of cardamom and cloves, faint cinnamon-esque notes, and though I know I should be getting grains of paradise, they seem to get lost in the muddle here than they did in the nose. The citrus notes - the curacao orange peel in particular, though also some faint lemon, passion fruit - are prevalent, mixing with the tartness (not sourness) of the fermentation to give a nice citrus kick with just a faint amount of acidity. Pretty solid, if a little busy.

Mouthfeel: Not sticky or cloying at all, largely by virtue of its dryness relative to many of its double wit cousins. There's definite effervescence, almost too much for a beer this dry, as there's no natural "thickness" beyond the necessary volume of this much attenuated sugar to contain the crispness, but it's not really too terrible distracting.

Drinkability: 8.0%. Yep. I'm feelin' it. But it's not too noticeable or in your face, despite the lack of sweetness to cover up (maybe it's hidden in the spice). This one's a step above most of the double wits I've had - most tend to be sickly sweet, or overly spiced, or spiced in an inauthentic way. This one keeps the yeast notes at bay, and augment them with authentic earthy spices and overtones, and has a dry enough malt backbone that nothing's cloying or overpowering. Indeed, it's one of the better examples of the style I've had the pleasure of drinking. Recommended, and an exemplary standout if BA ever gives the "doublewit" it's own style.

A tasty extra thrown in completely unexpectedly by a truly generous BA, mymrnngjckt. Kevin, you sir are truly a douche!

Appearance: With a pop of the cork, it's sound and trajectory scaring awake my slumbering canine, I pour the brew into my DFH chalice. The beer is a cloudy, bronze-ish golden color (much more vibrant than I expected) with a foamy, frothy, half inch worth of bubbly white head. Retention isn't the greatest, and the lacing is soapy and runny.

Smell: Sweet, much sweeter than I expected, with a mild variety of spices and overripe bananas. Refreshing.

Taste: Wife tested, BA approved. Shocking considering that the wife rarely likes a beer that I do. I had to wrestle it from her. Fortunately, it was worth the missing tooth and black eye to get it back. Bananas and clove, with a nice blend of spice to give it some variety. Definitely on the sweeter side, not really picking up any sort of bitterness from the hops.

Mouthfeel: Slightly over-carbonated, but not really enough to worry about. Nice light to medium body.

Drinkability: I gotta give this brew some good marks here. It's light, crisp and refreshing, and easy to drink...but most importantly it's pretty tasty too. I would definitely recommend this brew to anybody. Thanks again, Kevin!

750 ml poured into my duck rabbit snifter (~10 oz)-remaining contents shared on Christmas with the family. This has been in the cellar for awhie.

A- Body is a very foggy straw yellow hue with a dynamic fogginess. Pours with a hefty 3 finger+ white foamy head. This eventually fades to about 1/2 finger and little lacing is left behind in the glass.

S- Coriander, dry floral hops, soap, faint lemon, peppery spice, slightly bready-overall impression is dry and spicy.

T- Flavor is spicy upfront with lemongrass and a slight funk beneath. Mild floral hops and spices come through for the finish which is quite dry otherwise.

M- Feel is slightly dry and light weight, with a medium to high spritzy carbonation-quite champagne like.

D- This is a very good brew overall. ABV is well hidden. This reminds me more of a saison than an imperial witbier (which is interesting since there are several saisons in the smokestack series)- but it definatelt falls into the pale Belgian category well. Another great brew by Boulevard.
