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.

Served in a tulip at the Union Brewhouse in Weymouth.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a slightly hazy pale yellow color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Vanilla, bready wheat, spice bomb, yeasty esters, orange peel, apple, banana, and clove.

Taste: Love all the spices that went into the beer. Especially goes well with this style. So smooth and balanced too.

Mouthfeel: Refreshing, chewy, tart, medium to full bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Awesome double wit. Love the twist between old and new. It works for me.

I grabbed this up at the Fort Leavenworth Post Exchange on my way off post. They had a bunch of bottles just sitting around, along with Love Child #4. I bought several. Side poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

Appearance - Pours a nice hazy golden color with a thick, foamy head of about two fingers and some change. Head retention is good, about halfway through the beer, leaves little lacing.

Smell - Very similar to what is described on the side of the bottle. Lots of tartness, bananas, fruits, and spices. Very complex nose, smells very interesting.

Taste - While similar to the nose, it is a little better than expected. Sourness, bananas, funk, wheat, coriander, spices, more spices! Pretty excellent beer, very complex on the palate but not too much at once. I now know why KC Beer Blog was so wound up about Boulevard bringing this beer back into production.

Mouthfeel - Thick, chewy, refreshing. Big on carbonation, goes down smooth.

Overall - This is a very good beer. Not having much experience with this style, I did not know what to expect and had to actually read about the style before I wrote the review. I am quite impressed with this offering from Boulevard's Smokestack Series. Condor recommended, Condor approved.

Poured into a tall tulip at TapWerks in OKC. Cheers.

Hazy gold with a dusting of white bubbles. Big clove and ginger in the nose. Palate, on the other hand, is slick and sour, a lacto and wheat one-two (fruit) punch: Concord grape, mandarin orange, peach. Towards the end, it fills out, falling over the tongue with a blanket of creamy sugars. Finishes in that vein, a rich and fruity wheat that you forgot was even sour.

Great tasting beer, especially for the style. A craft-beer-lover's Blue Moon: sweet, wheaty, and easy-to-drink. There's a lot going on in this glass.

25.4 oz bomber, tulip glass

A – Gold to deep gold. Huge frothy white head with a ton of persistence. Excellent wheat haze. (4.00)

S – Sour, tart, a lot of lactobacillus. Lemon and orange. Very refreshing. (4.50)

T – Sourness is the first sensation on the tongue and the last on the finish and aftertaste. Lots of citrus, maybe some guava or some other “spicy” fruit. Very sweet, not cloying while the beer is cold but starts to become a bit much as the beer warms. A lot of similarities to a Berliner Weisse. More maltiness as well as the beer warms. (3.50)

M – Again, sweet, increasingly so as the beer warms. The tart and a touch of bitterness offset it, but not entirely. Light bodied. Decent carbonation, what I would consider standard for a wit. (3.25)

O – A lot more sour than I expected from a witbier. Feel like it is a bit of a hybrid of styles. Tastes great and refreshing but the sweetness became a little overwhelming. In the second tier of Boulevard’s Belgian-style beers. (3.75)
