Two Jokers Double-WitTwo Jokers Double-Wit
Notes: 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.

A great ale. Palish color with small white head. Taste kinda citrisy but more so of a nice white wine of a good mascoto. Easy and smooth drinking. Great for a summer day

Appearance is light golden, cloudy, with a thick white foam cap. Aroma is an amazing combination of citrus, coriander, and grass, with clove yeast phenols and a slight lactic funk. Taste is multi-layered starting with a rich malt sweetness, giving way to citrus flavors of lemon and grapefruit. There’s a slight hint of coriander and clove, and it finishes with a moderate lactic acidity and tartness that perfectly balances the malt sweetness. Mouthfeel is might to moderate with a bit of creaminess and a moderate carbonation. Finishes fairly dry with a nice acidic tartness that balances the malt. A lot going on here, and a great beer

Listed in the "1001". But I bit too hoppy for me, unless I shared it the next time.

This is on the tart side, but also very sweet. This just tastes like too much orange peel and too much sweet spice. The lavender in particular is not a flavor that does well in beer, I think, after tasting this. Color is orange amber with a modest foam in the Kasteel chalice. Quite spritzy on the tongue, accentuated by the acidity.

Clean and well made, just hard to take. If only it was less intense it would be a tolerable sipping brew. But the aftertaste stays with you, that sugary fruitcake with the sharp edge. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Special Brews in Lynnwood, Wash.

Appearance: Deep golden orange in color, verging on brown, with a small white head, which retains well, lots of fine, glass-coating lacing, and moderate carbonation.

Aroma: Sweet orange rind dominates the aroma, with some grapefruit rind, prominent coriander and cardamon as well. The high ABV (8%) is absent from the aroma. The aroma has a slightly tart note.

Taste: Opens with tart wheat, soon followed by coriander and cardamon. Sweet orange rind and bitter lemon rind present as well. As the taste progresses, the tartness intensifies, although without ever becoming intense. The alcohol is largely absent, offering only a warming note, surprising, in light of the relatively high ABV of eight percent. A little white pepper appear late in the taste. Finishes with a sweet-and-sour wheat and some mild herbal hops.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, very full, quite pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: Really excellent, pushes a wonderful style to a higher level, well worth the effort.

Presentation: Packaged in a 750 ml brown glass Belgian bomber with a cork and cage, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice. Batch Number TJ14127-1, Best By Date: 02-2015. Recently purchased at a local grocer at a deep discount, presumably because it was long past its "Best By" date.

Usually not a big fan of witbiers, but this one is stellar. Pours a dark gold with a thin white head, with a slight amount of lacing to boot. The smell is spectacular, spices jump out front, followed by a cavalcade of citrus such as orange and lemon, with a nice bit of malt rounding out the end. The taste follows the nose in reverse, with a bit of malt and a lot of orange dominating the front, then fades into the spices with coriander being most prominent, the finish is a has a nice sourness to it as well. Mouthfeel is a bit sticky, and its a medium bodied brew as well. Overall I bought this thinking it was actually a saison, but it turned out to be a "Double-wit", either way Boulevard smashed this out of the park; its refreshing, crisp, and delicious, and the 8% ABV give this witbier a little "umph" to really get it going.

From backlog. January 2015.

Pours amber/orange with a puffy, off-white head. Oranges and spices (coriander?), a little peppery, some cracker-like malts. Tasty, and surprisingly refreshing, especially for the abv.

L: It pours hazy gold with peach highlights under a stiff column of white, finely bubbled foam that grips the glass.
S: Citrus, spice, coriander, orange
T: Starts with a lemony citrusy tartness and then a short bread bischit in the background forms a platform for a rich spiciness.
F: Creamy juicy tart with just below medium body and a medium carbonation with a very fine, soft bead.
O: A very pleasant lemony citrusy summer drink that combines satiating heft with refreshment.
