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.

Hazy yellow pour with a one-finger white head. Very nice citrus, lemon and yeast aroma. Excellent lemony tart flavor upfront with a nice tropical fruit edge. Light body has a strong spice presence with flavors of coriander and clove standing out. Also, has very light hints of grain and yeast. Finishes tart, juicy and refreshing.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance:
Bright but cloudy orange body. Thick, fluffy white head. Plenty of carbonation. Little to no lacing and retention is a bit lacking. Nice legs, however.

Aroma:
Incredibly tart,sweet, and jam-packed full of coriander! Lavender and pepper add a very unique overtone to this brew. Light malt and citrus character.

Taste:
Tart right up front. Plenty of spicing (mostly coriander, lavender, and pepper) pack a tasty punch while you're thirst is quenched by sweet, tropical citrus fruit. Where's the alcohol - this one has less bite than a Miller Lite. Ginger shines through as it warms.

Mouthfeel:
Bubbly and incredibly light. Smooth and tart. Sweet, clean finish.

Overall:
Simply awesome. This ranks up there with Tank 7 as my favorite beer from my favorite brewery from Missouri. If you see it, grab it, and you'll be blown away!

nothing quite like this one on the market, a jazzed up wit with all kinds of fragrant character and depth. blonde and hazy, looks the part, bubbles are huge and plentiful, nice for hot weather. the nose is where it gets interesting. cardamom is there, and the lavender they claim is right up front, short of perfumy, but getting there. the spices seem to clash a little with the classic orange and coriander. while congruent in the nose, they seem disjointed and at odds in the taste, especially the finish, where the blooming lavender is too much. i super dig the tartness to this though, the yeast is so much more than the average wit style yeast, there is a funk here, almost saison-esque as it wraps up. wheat malt base is much larger than most, but it never gets heavy and it never gets sweet. in fact, the feel is fantastic. lively carbonation and a smoothness to it. refreshing save the high alcohol content, which is more distracting than helpful in this particular beer, but the smokestack series continues to be incredible and distinct. one of my favorite lines in commercial american brewing. worth a try for its originality.
