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.

Nice brew from Boulevard. I wish it would sell a little better at my store. It’s really the perfect summer brew. Crisp coriander, orange and lemon flavors. Fantastic pairing with pork or salmon. Very clean flavors.

ilovedarkbeer (2374) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 6, 2009
In honor of the first boulevard of the season. Pours a hazy golden color with a massive white head that persists for quite a while. Nose is honey, grains of paradise, orange zest and banana. Taste is slightly catty (cat litter too), spicy, sweaty, honey/caramel, and you definitely get that lavender. Good but not great.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 5, 2009
Bottle. Poured a hazy medium orange color with a lasting white head. Smelled of honey, orange, coriander, and pastry. Medium bodied and slightly sweet with some delicate acidity and a splash of alcohol. Carbonation was on the high end of the spectrum. I tasted clove, perfume, lemon, champagne, and coriander.

notalush (5124) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 4, 2009
Hazy gold, sudsy lace - refreshing, summery aroma of melon rind, peaches, spices, light yeast phenols, a touch of tartness - prickly mouthfeel - quite tart, lactic, nearly sour at times - this is balanced by a marmalade sweetness that arrives late - some coriander and wildflower character - clove and peppery spiciness on the back end - some apple and peach - quite refreshing despite its strength.

Hazy orange color with a frothy off white head. Big sourdough, orange coriander spicy aromas. medium body. Spicy coriander flavor with sharp orange peel, other spices on a hefty wheat malt base.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Pours a hazy dark golden orange color with slight darker golden yellow hues when held to a light source. Massive frothy 2.5 finger white head that slowly fades into a lasting ring. Very spicy aroma with hints of peppery lemon zest and coriander. Lots of bready yeast and citrus fruit notes, mostly lemon and orange peel. Medium body that is surprisingly tart and lactic with a huge spicy presence and citrus fruit notes all accompanied by a yeasty/bread presence. Crisp and refreshing with an almost unnoticeable alcohol presence. ABV is extremely well masked. Slight dry finish. Very spicy up front with hints of cloves, coriander, cardamon, pepper and lemon zest and a yeasty/bread body with banana and citrus notes: lemon, orange peel, grapefruit and a subtle hop presence. Crisp and refreshing with a slight dry finish.

Beautiful light orange pour with a citrus and spice filled nose. Flavor was clean and refreshing with a nice white head. Felt very nice on the palate and had a very nice balance. (not too sweet, sour, bitter, etc). a great witbier.

The Dan Journal #266. Tasted 6/22/09. 750ml cork and cage. Slightly hazy with a golden yellow hue. Layer of whhite head. Banana aroams with a lot of citrus fruit and a subtle berry ester. Mildly peppery. Full bodied with a huge effervescence. Which I found to be a attribute. Chalky, perfumy and citrusy. Tingling tart and sour flavor. Nice bitterness. Very nice palate roll. Lively and complex with a great bright character. Well done!

beerdad (397) - Kansas, USA - AUG 28, 2009
Bottled. The smokestack series from Blvd is a pretty decent set overall. Pours cloudy golden, with medium off white head. Aromas contain alcoholic hints, coriander, clove, and citrus rind. Flavors are of corander, clove, and orange. While this is not my favorite type of beer it is decent and if you like witbeir you may think it is worth the money.

bleeng (1552) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - AUG 21, 2009
750 bottle. Hazy gold with a diminishing head. Nose is strangely silent, with only hints of spices, alcohol, yeast and hops. Taste is another matter, as this beer attacks the taste buds with carbonation, orange peel, alcohol, perfume, spices, sweetness, a bit of funk/skunk. Very easy to drink but still very challenging to palate. I like.
