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 from notes:

P: Big head with great white lacing and retention. A cloudy golden yellow color with streaming bubbles.

S: Herbs, orange and lavender, spices very evident.

T: Tart orange with mild malt flavoring. Great bubbles and a wonderful mix of herbs and spices. The flavors compliment each other nicely. Champagne like and very refreshing.

O: 1st witbier and will not be my last. Very impressed with this brew and will enjoy more in the future.

Currently, this is the #6 ranked Witbier here on BA.

I poured this into a FFF pint glass.

A: cloudy overall, but it still had a transparent-around-the-edges disposition. The soft head was irrelevant.

S: This was NOT a coriander bomb. As a matter of fact, it"s tough to place this one in any particular spice class, but I'll try: Orange peel, cardamom, and milk.

T: Great Witbier-esque qualities. Citrus, spices (same as the nose), along with Boulevard's signature fresh, filtered water taste profile.

M: Spritzy enough on the carbonation side, and not too sweet or spicey. The lacing was non-existent.

O: The price was right, and so was the taste. Great stuff!

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.

A good looking American rendition of a Belgian white. A golden shade of orange, dense, but not so much hazy or cloudy, sitting under a very white, moderate-sized head.

The spices are there, but it lacks the funky Belgian yeast scents. Coriander and orange peel are the most prevalent notes.

It's got some strange flavors. Nothing bad, but it's weird. Lavender is noticeable, and I don't know what grains of paradise taste like, but I think I picked it up too. (Just looked up grains of paradise and it's a peppery flavor...that's pretty easy to pick up).

It's kind of sweet and kind of spicy, but only slightly bitter and definitely dry and tart. More of a puckering kind of tart, rather than a cleansing kind of tart.

Certainly not a bad beer, just something I haven't quite developed a taste for. Too many competing flavors and sensations. I guess you could say it's complex.
