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.

A: Hazy muted orange, swarms of loose carbonation support the dense, loud, gold-tinted head. Lacing almost looks like it'll be sticky, but then disappears. Looks like a little bit of sediment at the end. Artwork isn't flashy, but is old-time cool.

S: Orange is clear, with some kinds of tropical fruits like pineapple and peach muddled in there. Reminds me of hop aromatics. Those grains of paradise really propel the fruit aromas to new heights, giving them a nearly sweet sensation. The spices are muted, but linger in the back, almost peppery.

T: Orange juice and zest, lemon, semi-tart. Baseline of mild grain. Spices have really stepped up but are less harsh than on the nose. Coriander mostly, complicated by, but not very obvious by themselves, clove and cinnamon. Mildly sweet, but bitter on the finish. Quite a bit of character for a witbier.

M: For all that apparent carbonation, on the tongue it is subdued; only a little prickly. The tart flavor offsets the surprising mild astringency.

O: I'm glad it's back! Surprised that I enjoyed it so much back before I'd had much beer experience; this has a distinguishable bitterness. The fruit notes are much more obvious, as well as an inoffensive grain note. The tartness is another good step away from faceless witbiers. All in all, everything could mesh together a little better, but still a wonderful beer.

Odor: Pepper and citrus

Appearance: Smoke poured out when the cork was popped. Served in a challis glass, The beer poured out a milky light orange Fast dissipating lace on glass

Taste: Strong taste of lemon and orange peel with a heavy coriander spice. High carbonation just short of a champagne like feel. Slightly creamy but more acidic than Blue Moon.

Good Beer. I was taken back by how citrusy the beer tasted but as I drank became very accustomed to the taste. Very light. Would be a great summer beer.

Reviewed Nov 2011

In my Duvel Tulip. Pours a cloudy golden with two to three fingers of white head. Very pretty looking beer.

Aroma is bananas, cloves, gum, sweet and citrus fruits. Wheat and sugar, very inviting and complex.

The taste is an entirely different thing than the aroma. It’s sweet and sour, all the citrus comes out in it.

Palate is great! Good carbonation and rolls smoothly along the tongue. There isn’t much of an after taste to speak of.

Overall a very interesting brew. I’ve never encountered a beer that accomplishes what this does, giving off an aroma that isn’t anywhere close to the actual taste. Beautiful.

A-Cloudy bright orange, not much carbonation, one finger fluffy head.

S-Wheat, grass, orange, lemon, mild funk, grass-like spices as well.

T-Good deal of orange and lemon, slight wheat. Mild tartness. Not much in the way of spices.

M-Light and not much carbonation. Lack of carbonation, makes it seem a tad syrupy.

O-Yeah the bottle was older as it has been discontinued. Fresh maybe it will be better. Drink it now if you have any lying.
