COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

No. 8 in the Boulevard Smokestack Series. "Double Witbier"

Conventional wisdom holds that there are two sides to every story. Though our new Two Jokers Double-Wit is hardly conventional, there are in fact two distinct pieces to its personality. On the one hand, it’s a revival of the classic Belgian “wit,” or “white” beer, a style dating back to the late 1800s. The use of lactic fermentation and ingredients like coriander and orange peel are hallmarks of the style, as are the cloudiness and the pale color that give the beer its name. On the other hand, it’s a modern, uniquely American specialty brew; big, flavorful, and spiced with cardamom, lavender, and grains of paradise. Two Jokers has a refreshing tartness, nicely balanced by a well rounded malt bill graced by notes of caramel. Belgian yeast brings floral aromas with hints of banana and clove, and a citrusy zing to the tongue. Two Jokers Double-Wit pairs well with the lighter fare of spring and summer, such as grilled fish or chicken, feta cheese, fresh garden salads, and fruit compotes.

I love Zon and was very excited at the thought of something with twice the pleasantness that brew has to offer. This beer started off nicely- some wheat, spice, a bit of bitterness....but then suddenly finishes with almost a ginger ending. The intense fruity ending really threw off the taste for me and was too much for a witbier...disappointing.

snoworsummer (2034) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Draft. Pours hazy gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like sweet honey, herbs, lemon. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like honey, herbs, lemon.

TXBadger (1334) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Pours a cloudy light golden color with white head. Raw wheat, caramel malt, coriander, other spice, some yeast, citrus, and tartness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with just a hint of tartness, sweetness, but dry.

EtTuCthulhu (1022) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - AUG 13, 2014
The beer is an opaque golden color with a large white head that fades slowly. The aroma blends Belgian yeast with spicy esters, wheat, and some low levels of citrus, and the taste is mildly sweet and slightly sour with the spiciness coming through slightly. The palate fuses a medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation, and a finish that is an extension of the flavor long after the beer is swallowed.

weihenweizen (1676) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle corked and capped poured into a weizen glass. Pours light orange with medium white head. Aroma is cardamom, medium body, well carbonated, and some big bubble lacing. Taste is dominated by spice: cardamom, grains of paradise, and lavender. Too much spice for me, I like richer wits with orange dominant taste.

ryanscourt (737) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Very good. Zippy. Sweet orange like flavor with coriander. Nice carbonated bite on the tongue.

crossovert (7200) - Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Draft. HaEd honey colored pour. Smell is astringent toward galangal, lavender, and lemongrass, tartness as well. Flavor is tart, not quire sour, heavy urinal cake lavender, wheat, and ginger. Would have gone well with some Brett but a little too much spice and tartneas battling in this one.

BierMeHoos (83) - Maryland, USA - AUG 11, 2014
750 ml bottle. Hazy yellow with huge head. Aroma is clove, various other spices. Taste has a huge lemony-sweet quality. Spices in the background as well as banana. Creamy, slick mouth feel. Overall the aroma and taste are both a little disappointing, but this is a good beer for those who like a little sour. Interesting, to say the least.

SSSteve (3751) - - AUG 10, 2014
bottle. cloudy light gold with a loud, fizzy white head. citrus, ginger, white pepper aromas. flavor is surprisingly tart. lots of white grapefruit and a twist of lemon acidity. lighter notes of GOP, vanilla, clove and green banana. thank goodness the lavender doesn’t show up...i hate that crap.

ljthiessen (354) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle. Sweet and spicy aroma, some lemon and coriander. Flavour is sweeter and fuller bodied than expected. Nice combination of citrus, tropical fruits and spices.
