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.

BeerandBlues2 (10386) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2009
Bottle. Pours hazy and lightly cloudy dark yellow with an average, frothy white head, mostly lasting with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, straw, hay), average hop (flowers, perfume), heavy yeast (horse blanket, barnyard) with notes of clove, dates, pepper, nutmeg, coriander, cardamom, and lavender. Medium bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and an astringent finish. Long duration, light sweetness and bitterness, moderate acidity.

jrob21 (2749) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 14, 2009
Bottle from Soonah. Pours a cloudy dark orange color with a one finger size white head. Spice and clove like aroma. Nice body but not as big as some others I have had here recently. The wheat is quite muted but working in the background. Flavor is a lot of fruit upfront that finishes slightly spicy and with a faint hop bitterness. Fruit is mostly apple with some orange and a little lemon. Nice complexity here. I keep trying to decipher the full flavor profile. All of it is quite entertaining for a beer.

coyotehunter (681) - , Michigan, USA - AUG 1, 2009
750 ml Bottle with a big thanks to Soonah. Pours a wonderful murky orange with a head that seems to build forever, but eventually tapers off into a big fluffy cap on the beer. Strong aromas of clove, some banana, orange, and maybe a touch of Mentholatum. Taste is however, not as good as it appears. A little heavy on the sweetness, with a lot of citrus, some bread, and a bunch of ginger. Palate is smooth and creamy. Not terrible.
