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.

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.
