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.

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.

Poured from a 750 ml corked bottle into a Duvel tulip glass. Batch # TJ14128-1-02-2015.

Appearance: Pours a bright and hazy golden orange with a lot of bubbles. About two fingers of white head which settle into a thin patchy layer.

Smell: A very spicy and fruity wheat forward aroma with a big mix of spices and fruit esters. Belgian yeast with a big mix of spices including lavender, coriander, clove, cardamom, peppers, and grains of paradise. Wheat and pale malt with hints of grains, straw, cracker, and oats. Good fruit hints of orange peel and lemon along with some green apple, banana, and pear. Also some hints of candied sugar. Hops are very light. A pretty nice aroma.

Taste: Like the smell suggests, a spicy and fruity Belgian wheat taste with a mix of spices and fruit esters. Belgian yeast with big upfront spice notes of lavender, coriander, peppercorn, clove, cardamom, and grains of paradise. Wheat and pale malt with bready notes of straw, grains, oats, and cracker. Big fruit taste with notes of orange peel, lemon zest, green apple, banana, and pear. Light notes of sugar and some very subtle hops. A very nice and interesting taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a fairly high level of carbonation. Crisp, juicy, and fairly spritzy. Finishes fairly dry. Alcohol heat is masked well.

Overall: A pretty good twist on a Belgian style Wheat Beer. Good mix of spices that are big but don’t overwhelm the fruit flavors. A nicely unique and tasty Wit.
