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.

Drinking from a Boulevard pint glass, poured from the Boulevard bomber.

This looks to be a pretty imposing wheat-wheat from the outset - almost thick looking because it's such a dark color for a wheat - orange-brown, with a huge 1 inch head, with a volcano-like crater from the pour, dying out to become a thin layer of white "invite."

Definitely wheaty on the nose, but in a big way, with additions of spices and citrus, finely complementing the wheat aromas.

Big bitter wheat, and coriander-like spices and hints of grapefruit and other citrus extending to the edges of the tongue, making you forget that you've ever had another beer before. It's seriously that enjoyable.

Heavy in the mouth, popping and cracking with each taste, becoming a bit syrupy and at the end, but by that point, your tongue is so worn out that it just doesn't care anymore.

Nothing left to write - smiling too much.

Kept a bottle of this stashed in the fridge for a stupidly long time. I dunno. I do that, sometimes, without meaning to. And sometimes the accidental aging does wonders for the beer...

Pours thick and gold with a firm, foamy white head. Smells of intense banana and lots and lots of spice. The pepper and alcohol nodes have been muted by age, and replaced with gigantic bursts of chamomile, coriander, lavender, and lemongrass. The sweet spices carry throughout the beer, and are balanced nicely by a very light wheatmalt and pepper nodes on the far back end.

It reminds me of a hyper-evolved version of Cisco's wonderful Grey Lady--a super spicy, lightly sweet wit that tastes like a combination of wonderful potpourri and a handful of strange, Victorian-era candies.

Reviewing Boulevard's re-released version of this beer in 2014, which as far as I know, did not involve any kind of recipe change. Enjoyed on tap at Bier Station. Poured into a large Belgian tulip glass with a flared rim.

Appearance - Pours a murky amber yellow with just a bit of variance on hue around the edges of the glass where the liquid isn't as dense and allows light to pass through. Otherwise, fairly consistent color throughout. Atop the body sits a single finger of frothy bone white head that takes only a minute or two to recede to a healthy bubbly ringlet around the edge of the glass with some additional thickness at places along the circumference. A mix of larger and smaller bubbles. As I start to drink, it leaves just tracings of lace along the glass that disappear after awhile.

Smell - From the glass emanates a wonderful bouquet of floral and fruity aromas paired with that distinctive spiciness that comes from a Belgian wit. However, in this case, it's different. The spiciness seems to have more depth than a standard witbier. The lavender and cardamom give this one a distinctly floral quality that is usually absent. The coriander is still there, but as a complement, rather than a feature. There is also a nice citrus zest component that brings to mind orange and some lemon.

Taste - The aroma turns out to be a wonderful prelude to the refreshing yet complex taste of this beer. Sometimes, those two things can be a bit mutually exclusive--a lot of different flavors can kill the refreshing aspects of a beer. It's a bit different than I remember, but the last time I had this beer was at least 5 years ago. At play, there is nice soft citrus from the orange peel and coriander and just the faintest twinge of tartness, which is actually a characteristic I really like about some of the most authentic witbiers. The floral elements are at play again, more with the lavender and just a faint bit of the impression of sweetness from the cardamom, both imparting an impression of sweetness, like you get from smelling baking spices.

Mouthfeel - Medium-to-light bodied, with a low to moderate level of carbonation and just the tiniest twinge of sourness on the tongue.

Overall, this beer may be better than I remember it, but my palate has come a long way since I first had it many years ago. This was one of the earliest examples of Boulevard's new Smokestack Series offerings I ever had, and having it was a gateway into Boulevard coming into its own when it comes to Belgian styles. The reprise of this fan favorite is a welcome addition to (hopefully) their regular lineup.

Poured from 750 mL bottle into snifter. Batch # 2-2009.
A: Pours a beautiful yellow-orange with slight cloud and hint of yeast sediment. 2+ inch thick bubbly white head. Like admiring a wondrous sunrise.
S: Fresh belgian spice, yeast, coriander, citrus (orange) zest, and grain. Very nice!
T: Bright orange and spice up front. Settles into citrus hops, yeast, and hint of malt. Wonderful for style.
M: Initially bright, light, and crisp. Then slightly bitter and acidic. Finishes smooth and dry.
D: Very drinkable and a wonderful brew. Refreshing and interesting. You can tell this is still a wit...but more. I highly recommend this one and I continue to enjoy Boulevard's experimentation with this series!

Served from a 750ml bottle, 2011 vintage but not sure of which batch, I’m going to guess 02. Thanks Jim (RatedZ) for this beauty, was very enjoyable.

A – Pours a light hazy yellow color, really similar to straw, nice white billowy head that left not very much lacing on the glass.

S – Good amount of citrus and lemon in the nose, there is some funk also, but really rides shotgun to the citrus/lemon notes. A little spice mixes into the aroma, really welcoming.

T – This beer really shines in the taste, a whole lot of citrus and lemon hit you at first and some orange peel layered into the this already super complex brew. And then there is the tart finish, this beer shines from the front of the tongue to the back of the tongue. There is a little spice flavor added, that just makes it that much more complex and this has to be the most complex Witber I have ever had.

M – Carbonation on this beer is perfect, it’s a little more on the light side but that comes from the addition of the yeast.

O – Has to be the best Witber I have ever had, maybe because of the addition of the funk yeast that adds the extra level. The 25/75 is perfect, anything more and it would be a little too much!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Strong pop from the cork, and wispy gunsmoke wafts from the crater at the bottle's neck. Got a whiff of banana in the air as it was opened, wheaty like a good hefe. Up close it's all coriander. Racing carbonation feeds a monstrous and pillowy head of foam. Uneven and rugged surface, sudsy with some larger bubbles here and there making their way upward. Murky glowing orange. Made sure to swirl the yeast dregs and add them in.

First sip is very orangey with a substantial wheat body. Sturdy with a nice orange/cantaloupe rind aftertaste, and lingering banana. Not too spicy, leaning towards some fruity sweet-tartness. The orange/banana combo is especially nice, like a smoothie almost. The wheat takes a backseat, but lends plenty of smoothness in the feel. The lacto added gives it the perfect zesty bite. Perfect for warm weather, this is the true essence of a quality Wit, turned up to eleven.

It certainly fits the bill of an Imperial Wit, not wimpy like Zon. Also it's nice to try a fresh one instead of one imported after who knows how long (Jan De Lichte, St. B). On my short list of top 5 Witbiers.

Bought a 750 mL bottle of this from the Bridge Wine House & Tap Bar in St. Louis, MO for $15. Poured from the optical illusion looking bottle into a Snifter glass and has Batch Number 2-2009 on the back.

Aroma- Very sweet and has a nice citrus/orange aroma. Wheats are here also and then also maybe a bit of spice. Very moderate aroma overall.

Appearance- Pours a 3 finger head that has good retention! A light golden body is present with a bit of haziness. Leaves great lacing on the snifter.

Flavor- Very nice citrus start and a double orange peel is here. Not as much wheat as in the aroma but still involved in the drink. Hops are evident and have a light bitterness at the end. Very sweet and great for the style!

Mouthfeel- Medium Bodied, High Carbonation, Effervescent, and leaves a nice acidity on the end of the drink, back of the tongue. Great!

Overall Impression- Perfectly refreshing, has nice body and punch to it and nice fruit flavors added. I've enjoyed this now on-tap and bottle. Both were phenomenal and don't remember much difference between these two. Get your hands on if you can!

Poured into a shaker from the bottle. Pours a hazy burnt orange with globs of yeast that settles to the bottom. Big frothy head, minimal lacing. The nose is slightly phenolic, but lots of sweet citrus, banana, and robust wheat. The taste is huge banana and clove, very sweet and very tart. The tart does help balance out the sweet fruit flavors so they are not cloying. The mouthfeel is creamy with the tart dominating the finish. Overall a good wheat beer. I think the tartness was unexpected, but really helped balance the beer.

Pours a hazy orange color with a large one inch slightly yellowed head on top. There is decent head retention, but no lacing.

The aroma is pretty decent. I get a nice dose of orange, with a slight bit of booze, and then is quickly followed by a good deal of spicing. The corriander seems to shine the most.

The taste is actually really nice. I get a really nice dose of citrus with a slightly tart orange peel and a bit of light grain. There's definitely a nice bit of spicing going on here as well. I'm really impressed actually, and I find this to be one of the better double wits I've encountered.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and really nicely carbonated with a light but robust bubble.

Drinkability is rather high. The 8% ABV is moderate, but well incorporated into the beer. The flavor profile for me is fantastic and incredibly drinkable. I'm really diggin it.

Pored from a 750ml bottle w/ cork & cage & a batch number of 2011-1 w/ a best by date of 12-2011. The cork pops off w/ ease! Extremely carbonated & pours w/ 2-3 fingers white head easily. Not much in thew way of lacing though. Pours a hazy golden straw color. Just wonderful.

The nose is of orange, floral, peppercorn, & yeast. Citrus hop presence on the nose as well. Bready nose after a refill, some peppercorn following & finishing w/ the orange/floral/lavender mix.

Taste is BAM!! Right up front in your face w/ taste! Has the orange peel upfront w/ the floral/citrus hops to follow. Quite a tart finish. A little sour throughout the taste. A complex interplay of spices & some coriander. Lavender is pretty prominent w/ this take on the style. Has a quick finish as well. Quite sweet. Much more than any others I've had.

Mouthfeel is light to medium. A pretty light body overall though. No doubt helped by the huge amount of carbonation. Very refreshing & a unique beer. A fantastic summer beer & very drinkable! Prosit!!

Poured this brew into a goblet. Hazy golden color with impressive head which recedes quickly with no lacing of course. Predominant scent is spicy clove. Highly carbonated mouthfeel - I enjoy it quite a bit. More spicy clove in the taste; also present is a very slight tartness reminiscent of a very mild sour. Alcohol isn't too noticeable. The third double wit I've ever had and definitely the best.

Poured from a 750ml bottle - thanks to JediMatt for this

A: Golden amber in color with a large fluffy head that gives GREAT lacing

S: Yeast upfront, with spices and banana following nicely

T: Tastes very spicy - corriander, cardamon, maybe a bit of clove? Also tastes a bit yeasty, true to style. Very tasty brew.

M: Medium-thin (a bit thinner than I'd like), with high carbonation.

O: With a high ABV that is well hidden, I would drink this more often if it was available locally, and more often still if it was in a smaller format, which takes it down a bit in the overall score for me.

Poured from a 750ml corked and caged bottle into a snifter. Good label. Batch 1-2009 but not sure the date. It was a hazy golden yellow with massive carb streams throughout. It had a very large white head that settled into a thin foam cap and good collar. Slight lacing.

The aroma was excellent and chock full of spices. Heavy on lavender and grains of paradise plus cardamom and the standard wit base of coriander and orange peel. A real good sniffer but you have to be careful or the lavender starts to overwhelm. The taste follows the aroma. Again, led by the lavender and grains of paradise atop a buried wit base. I really like the taste on this one but it's hard to find the wit in it unless you know to look for it since some many non-wit spices taking center stage. Not a complaint - just that it could be any lighter style. The 8% ABV never comes into play - couldn't smell it or taste it. Mouthfeel was crisp with a lot (almost too much) of carbonation. A definite gas inducer.

Overall, an excellent beer and the best double wit that I've had. I'd been putting this one off as, while I love wits, I find most double wits to be too dominated by alcohol taste and not very good. Glad that I finally tried it. Highly recommend. Rotation - avail here in TX. Part of the Smokestack series so not sure how long it will be available so need to grab a few more while fresh. If stays in rotation will get a few a year.

Picked up a bottle at Princeton Liquors in Maple Grove, MN for $9 or $10 and was not disappointed. This is another great addition to the Smokestack Series, I wish the regular line of Boulevard beers were this delicious. Now it's a heavily spiced beer and hits the threshold of non-beer flavors, but doesn't cross the line. The flavor, upfront, is a gentle mix of coriander (strongest flavor) followed by the grains of paradise (with a black pepper edge) and lavender. Of course in the background the yeast character comes through with mild vanilla and peppercorn, and a bit of bready wheat also pipes in to remind you of the malt bill. Certainly my favorite doube-wit to date. Very subtle, very deliicous.

Got this one in trade from CosmoHopHead. Loved the bnottle we shared with our tasting group. Looking forward to a bigger pour here.

A-Pours a very cloudy pale apricot with a fluffy white head that settles into a nice bubbly skin and nice lacing.

S-Yeast, banana and ginger. Very appealing.

T-The best double wit I have had this summer, and it seems like everyone is making them this year. There is a bright orange/tangerine flavor in the front, mixing with the crisp clove flavors and a nice bit of banana at the end. A nice biscuit malt underneath along with some nice fresh ginger and other spices.

M-Medium bodied with a nice light creaminess.

D-A really excellent summer beer. Great flavors, great body.

A - Pours a nice hazy strong golden color with some nice orange hues and a .5 inch white head with tight bubbles and not os much head retention.

S - Slight funk and some slight tartness. There are nice bread notes. The aroma is quite mild though.

T & M - Delicious slight tartness. Some lemon peel hints and some wheat notes and slight yeast funk. Very delicious. There is some nice yeast notes and great bready notes. There is also some nice coriander and pepper notes and some awesome slight clove. Nice and fluffy mouthfeel and great body. The beer is easy to drink and goes down smooth for an 8% beer. The slight lemon notes go well with the nice bread and grassy notes and the awesome spice.

D - Extremely drinkable and enjoyable brew. The beer is very refreshing and flavorful and has a nice strong and delicious spice character. The ABV is high but not too crazy.

Poured into a Chimay goblet after a mighty struggle to remove the cork...

Pours a very hazy light golden color with a quickly forming and long lasting foamy head... Very cloudy and hazy...

The nose on this is terrific... The Belgian yeast and various spices like clove and coriander and lots of orange peel are powerful and enticing... Everything blends very well here and the aromas are not only pungent but persistent... Lots of different things going on here... Spicy and yeasty like a good bread...
Loads of flavor with this one...the spices are the first thing that's evident bringing along the cloves and orange and all of the things apparent in the nose. There's a kiss of hops that mingle in and usher in the tartness that the finish brings in... This one could almost be a hybrid between a Belgian Pale and a Witbier to me...it has the spiciness and tartness of a good Wit with the yeast and sweetness and flavor of a Strong Pale Ale. Its delicious... Starts out prickly in the mouth but smooths out quickly... Very drinkable...

I liked this one quite a bit. My first Double Wit and I really enjoyed this one...
