BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Boulevard Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States

Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Summer

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.

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.

On tap at Bier Station in Kansas City. Arrived in a tulip glass.

A: Arrived a cloudy orange-gold, with a decent pale head that left some appreciable lacing.

S: I was sitting right next to an open kitchen, so my sense of smell was a little muddled. However, citrus notes leap out of the glass with this beer, primarily orange, like walking through an orange grove a bit past harvest time. Some spice and herb notes are also present, though well below the citrus.

T: See the description of the smell. This beer packs a serious orange-citrus punch, alongside a pronounced spicey-herbal presence. Orange juice and peel tastes abound, mixed with heavy coriander, lavender, and hints of white pepper. As the beer goes along, a slight touch of lactic sourness makes itself known around the edges of the citrus blast.

M: Lively and sparkling, this has the right amount of carbonation sharpness to it.

O: A very enjoyable experience, and the first Boulevard offering I've liked out of what I've tried. Had I been able to find a case of this, it would have come home with me.

The beer has a great look, is is a little hazy, kinda orange, with a decent head and carbonation. The smell jumps out at you, very spicy, I liked it very much and was very intrigued. The taste followed the smell. But the orange takes the lead instead of the spice, you really pick up the citrus, mostly orange. There is some spice but it is perfectly subdued and also just a touch of sour. After noticing the sour I then began to notice it in the smell. The beer is very smooth and clean, extremely easy to drink and there is no notice of the 8% ABV. Overall I was shocked how much I like this beer. I will have to get another one of these.

Too many spices in this one. Could have been better.
