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.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into two generic goblets. Thanks to HeatherAnn for the assist!

Batch No 1-2009

A: Pours a hazy, pale-gold. Very cloudy with a pillowy and full three-fingers of foam perched on top. The head featured great retention and left a beautiful mess of lace stuck in the lace. Carbonation was quite active.

S: Very balanced nose of banana, clove, tangy citrus, toasted malt, grains, red apple, and fruity yeast.

T: Loads of fruity yeast, spices, toasy malt, and a slightly tart apple flavor in addition to sweet spiced pear and peach.

M: Creamy and full with a spritzy prickle on the tongue. Does an excellent job of coating and also not being to heavy.

D: Fantastic! Heather said it was a masterful combination of Wit and Saison. Awesome!

750ml bottle, purchased in Fayetteville, Arkansas while on a "road trip".

Appearance - Big frothy lush white head forms upon initial pour. Lots of lacing clinging to the glass as this ample head resolves. Lively carbonation and a slight haze to add to the yellow/slight amber colored offering

Smell - Big bold nose. Lots of yeasty, grassy aroma. Some spicy notes as well. Very grainy but exceedingly pleasing. You can't miss thi. Very appealing.

Taste - The spice notes make their appearance early and with affirmation. Loads of coriander and orange peel cover the ABV nicely, while adding to the overall strong malt backbone.

Mouthfeel - The first thing that hit me when I took the first sip was the density. This isn't a thin witbier. There is a big mouthfeel to this offering with a chewy body without feeling too heavy.

Drinkability - An 8% ABV witbier? Wow. An amazing easy-drinking summer offering with a big beer heft and body. I would never have considered a witbier to be a "sipper", but this is very close. Outstanding "bending the style" rules to show just what you can do with a wheat beer. Kudos to Boulevard for a great beer. Wish this was available locally.

Poured from 750 into pilsner glass. Marked batch 01-2009 on bottle.

A: Poured with huge pillowy head. Nice lacing and hazy golden coloring. Good looking brew.

S: Wow, tart tones coming from the nose. Spicy tones mixed with lemon as well. Just wonderful and quite unique as well.

T & M: First off this is one fine brew. High alcohol content but still very refreshing with tart mouthfeel. Quite light bodied as I would expect a wit to be. The tones from the smell come through on the taste as well. Spices are apparent as is the lemon, zesty tones as well.

D: For a double wit highly drinkable. This is one that I will definitely be seeking out again. The Smokestack Series continues to impress.
