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.

Review from 12/2010 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a clear orange amber with nice carbonation. Thick white head leaves lots of lacing. Somewhat sour, citrus and light fruit start. Coriander, citrus and light hop finish with a hint of wild yeast. Nicely made, but a bit too sour and coriander forward for me.

Poured into a shaker from the bottle. Pours a hazy burnt orange with globs of yeast that settles to the bottom. Big frothy head, minimal lacing. The nose is slightly phenolic, but lots of sweet citrus, banana, and robust wheat. The taste is huge banana and clove, very sweet and very tart. The tart does help balance out the sweet fruit flavors so they are not cloying. The mouthfeel is creamy with the tart dominating the finish. Overall a good wheat beer. I think the tartness was unexpected, but really helped balance the beer.

Poured from a bomber into a Hennepin tulip glass.

A - Hazy light orange with a very large white head that takes a while to recede, leaving a nice white layer on top, with great lacing.

S - Getting sweet orange, some lemon,almost bubblegum scents, some slight biscuity malts.

T - Starts out with candied orange and almost a sour lemon, finishes a bit dry which is nice, good malty backbone, alcohol is hidden well.

M - Medium bodied, mild carbonation.

O - Excellent wit, lots going on.

Poured from a bottle into a Chimay goblet.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy orangish amber with a finger of fluffy white head. The head sticks around pretty well.

Smell: Chalked full of Belgian spice and sweet malt. I'm getting some mild ginger and candied fruit. Quite nice.

Taste: The spice from the smell is there. I'm reminded of ginger and candied pineapple. Fairly crisp given the abv. Sweet and spicy in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with fluffy carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: This beer grew on me as I drank it. The spice was quite nice and the malt backed it up perfectly. I would have another.

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.

Smokestack Glass
A ~ Pours slightly hazed peach. Head is silken and lacing is spotty & scattered.

S ~ Floral notes & bready pale malts jump out of the glass. Note of nectarine, orange peel, & garden greens. Coriander smells very fresh & green. Very glad that oversaturated (artificial) orange peel is not shining here. I expected this to be an Orange bomb hearing double wit.

T ~ Coriander, blood orange, & lime zest...Bitter orange peel & firm peaches on the finish. Herbal notes of grass & mint with a slight rosemary hint. Twinge of lemongrass.

M ~ Peppery & not too clingy. Very herbal...Boulevard has the most unique way of expressing coriander in their Belgians. Off-dry finish.

D ~ Really great wit. So much attention to detail. Not much else to say, the Smokestack series has not disappointed me yet. Their Belgians especially!

Best by 12/2011

A - Pours a somewhat hazy golden brown with three fingers of white head. Head has excellent retention and leaves some lacing, but less than I would have thought.

S - Wheat, lemon, faint coriander and cardamom, some slight yeast funk, a bit of green apple.

T - More tart up front than I was expecting, but it is really enjoyable. Lemon and lactic tartness, followed by a nice wheat body complemented with subtle spicing and a bit of earthy yeast funk.

M- Medium mouthfeel. A bit heavier than most witbiers, which works really well on a cold winter night. Bright carbonation, finishing with a dry earthiness.

O - This is a perfect witbier for winter. A bit on the heavy side for the style, light but noticeable spicing, and a very pleasant tartness. I'd love to have this again.
