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.

Peter_L (1242) - SWEDEN - APR 5, 2015
Rate från baklogg. Flaska från SB. Orangefärgad vätska med bitar av apelsinskal. Doftar som en blandning av kryddad julöl, tysk weissen och belgisk saison. Inte lätt att förstå bryggarens intention. Nu blir det lite av varje och ett tydlig bevis att delarna tillsammans inte bygger en större helhet.

Vignale (3210) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2015
Flaska från SB. Ibland blir inte dubbelt så mycket dubbelt så bra. Större kropp, högre sötma, mer kryddor. Får lite stor uppsötad belgisk blond men lite mer vetesyrlighet. Blir mycket blommig och fruktig parfym med apelsinskal, lavendel, koriander, blomstervatten. Lätt kvalmig men vetesyrligheten räddar upp det lite. Roligt men lite väl mycket tant.

Stuedmaster (345) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 9, 2015
This is a really nice strong witbier. Pours orange gold with a nice white head that leaves lacing. Aroma of orange peel, banana, bread, funky Belgian yeast. Very refreshing with the right amount of tartness. Nice sweet/sour flavor, very drinkable for the 8% abv. Would repeat.
