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.

No. 8 in the Boulevard Smokestack Series
Batch Number has been left blank.

a: Cloudy peach body with an ample head.

s: The aroma hit me as soon as I pulled the cork. Spice is the dominant component here, its quite balanced with orange peel being perhaps the most obvious specific spice. Coriander, cardamom, lavender, and grains of paradise are all detectable and I find that with alternating sniffs one or the other will comes to the forefront.

t: A bright bouquet of pleasing spice notes. As in the nose, all of the spices used to produce this beer can be detected, though orange peel is the strongest. The spices are there, they are the central focus of the beer, but they do not overwhelm either. Soft tart notes come through as well.

m: Full bodied by wit standards and creamy by any standard. My first thought when I took my first sip was how excellent the mouthfeel was.

d: When I heard Boulevard was doing a Double wit, I was actually disappointing. Does the world really need another wit? Couldn't Boulevard do something more exciting? Yes and no in that order. Wow, I mean...wow. Just when you think the style has nothing left to offer, Two Jokers comes around. This is a tremendous wit and this is coming from someone who isn't even much of a wit fan. I think this has Southampton, Allagash, St. Bernardus, Hitachino, and La Grande Blanche all beat. In my book, this is the new champion of the witbier category.

poured into a EKU pokel. Cloudy yellowish orange with a three finger head. Yeasty floaties.

Smells of grapes and an array of spices. Orange peel, Lemon peel, Coriander and cloves. Malty backbone and a twinge of grassy hops.

Suprisingly sweet and spicy at the same time. Great balance and really gathers all of the spices well. Hides the alcohol well underneath the spices.

Mouth is moderate and perfectly carbonated with a lingering sweetness in the aftertaste. Drinks easy and wonderfully on a hot night. Really liking the new Boulevard offerings Kepp em coming!

Poured into a Snifter

Cloudy copper/off orange with a nice 1 finger head that fades quickly but leaves a full film over the top of the beer

Smell is all over the board rich spices, corriander, clove and others. Also very citrus notes lemon/orange peel and even a grape note

Smooth and extremly complex spices are ver full and stay throughout the beer with a nice level of alcohol and good spicy finish

Very smooth and complex carbonation is near perfect. Medium near a heavy body very full

Easy to drink and I'll be happy everytime it comes around
