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.

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.

A-Cloudy bright orange, not much carbonation, one finger fluffy head.

S-Wheat, grass, orange, lemon, mild funk, grass-like spices as well.

T-Good deal of orange and lemon, slight wheat. Mild tartness. Not much in the way of spices.

M-Light and not much carbonation. Lack of carbonation, makes it seem a tad syrupy.

O-Yeah the bottle was older as it has been discontinued. Fresh maybe it will be better. Drink it now if you have any lying.

Bottle: Hyvee in Council Bluffs, IA
Date: Batch "12010 04/2011"
Glass: New Belgium globe glass

Overall, this is a good, tasty beer, but I'm not sure if it's suitable for 750ml bottles: it would be much more enjoyable to have a glass of this to mark the end of the night, rather than worry about finishing off an entire 750ml. This was a good, solid beer, but I'm not sure if I would get it again due to the bottle size.

Pours a generous >2cm head of slightly off-white foam, composed of small bubbles and quite dense, creating a nearly meringue-like image. Head retention is above average, it very gradually fades to a 0.5cm cap atop the beer. The head leaves some lacing along the sides, a few small lines and dots, about average. Body is a hazy, light copper brown, with light bringing out brighter shades of yellow and orange. Carbonation is visible, streaming from the center of the glass.

Aroma of nutmeg, cardamom, cinnamon, coriander, and some orange peel. In general, the scents are light, fresh, and spicy, reminiscent of a freshly baked sweet potato pie

The overall flavor profile is of distinct spices with a background of fairly substantial wheat and barley malt and a touch of ethanol. Tasting opens with mixed-malt sweetness tethered to flavorful pie spices including nutmeg, cinnamon, cardamom, and coriander. The orange peel from the aroma may be present, but the suggestion may induce the tasting. Mid-palate is sweet, with continued, substantial spices and the first showing of ethanol, all amidst a background of sweet malts. Back of palate picks up ethanol sharpness, with heavy malt sweetness and residual pie spices. Aftertaste is mildly sweet, with cardomom and vague nutmeg being the spices I'd use to most closely approximate it.

Body is medium to medium-heavy, with mid-level carbonation. The beer foams up across the palate, resulting in a generally smooth mouthfeel. Still, the ethanol presence is easily felt, giving a subtle burning sensation across the tongue and into the nostrils. Finish is semi-dry.
