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.

Pours a cloudy, maize/golden color. One and one half inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of yeast, citrus (banana/orange), hop, sweet malt, and tart malt. Fits the style of a Witbier. Mouth feel is tart, crisp, and slightly thick. There is a high carbonation level. Tastes of cinnamon, yeast, citrus (banana), sweet malt, tart malt, and slight hop. Overall, a good blend, body, and great looking brew.

Review from 12/2010 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a clear orange amber with nice carbonation. Thick white head leaves lots of lacing. Somewhat sour, citrus and light fruit start. Coriander, citrus and light hop finish with a hint of wild yeast. Nicely made, but a bit too sour and coriander forward for me.

Thanks goes out to stephens101 for this brew.

750ml Bottle
Caged/Corked
Batch: 1-2009

Poured into a chalice a very nice cloudy deep orange color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice huge three-finger creamy white head, with lots of thick/creamy sticky lacing. The nose is malty, with some yeast, corinder, bananna. The taste is slightly sweet, malty/yeasty, very nice touch of spices and banannas. Medium body. Very drinkable, an awesome brew, thanks Lane.

Best by 2011. Fun. Beer is dark yellow with a slight haze. Big head and lots of carbonation. Head is medium and medium bubbles. Head leaves some lacing on the glass.

Aroma is strong with spice and a tea like aroma.

It's medium bodied. Spicy and dry. Strong coriander. Carbonation is nice in the mouth. It's drinkability is good, mouthfeel is ok.

Picked up a bottle at Princeton Liquors in Maple Grove, MN for $9 or $10 and was not disappointed. This is another great addition to the Smokestack Series, I wish the regular line of Boulevard beers were this delicious. Now it's a heavily spiced beer and hits the threshold of non-beer flavors, but doesn't cross the line. The flavor, upfront, is a gentle mix of coriander (strongest flavor) followed by the grains of paradise (with a black pepper edge) and lavender. Of course in the background the yeast character comes through with mild vanilla and peppercorn, and a bit of bready wheat also pipes in to remind you of the malt bill. Certainly my favorite doube-wit to date. Very subtle, very deliicous.

The beer pours a hazy yellow-orange color with a white head. The aroma is loads of orange peel and coriander. The flavor is lemons, oranges, spicy hops and a lot of coriander. Some alcohol is present in the flavor as well. Very soft, medium mouthfeel and medium-high carbonation.

Hazy yellow pour with a one-finger white head. Very nice citrus, lemon and yeast aroma. Excellent lemony tart flavor upfront with a nice tropical fruit edge. Light body has a strong spice presence with flavors of coriander and clove standing out. Also, has very light hints of grain and yeast. Finishes tart, juicy and refreshing.

Pours an orange body with one finger fizzy head that dies quick and leaves no lace patches.
Aroma is floral and spicy with lavender and clove hitting me.
The yeast/wheat twang gives off fuller body, smoothness and some sweetness and aids in a citric hop bitterness and sharpness to the beer.
Balance is met with some tropical fruit like sweetness as well and finishes with a slightly sour kick.

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.
