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, itís a revival of the classic Belgian ďwit,Ē or ďwhiteĒ 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, itís 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.

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.

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.

Pours a hazy golden with white head. Aroma of citrus, coriander, bread, yeast, spices. Similar taste, medium finish. Solid beer.

I hate it when you pay 9 dollars for a bottle of beer and it tastes like this. Two jokers, who are they kidding, the jokeís on you fruitcake. It pours the color of a mixture of pale orange and apple juice with a 4 inch white head, the dissipates to under an inch before you can find a snack. It looks really appetizing in the glass though. The smell is like doughy, rough, fermenting bread, fruit peels, and spices. The flavor will shock you. Itís dominated by ginger, and well thatís pretty much it. It should be called a ginger beer. You know how a little bit of ginger goes a long way..., well, these guys forgot that. Thereís no hint of the alcohol. The feel of the beer is dry, spicy, and sharp. It does, however, go down rather smooth. The body is heavy and leaves you feeling weighted down, the opposite of what is supposed to happen with a seasonal summer, wit brew like this. I wouldnít call this a wit, even if it is made with belgian yeast. Itís more in the category of a vegetable/special herb beer. Itís one of those, where you kinda have to squeeze down every swallow if you know what i mean. Itís just not taming this 105 deg. Texas heat. ...which is really kind of funny, because after i rated it, i went back and read the other ratings, then made this comment. A lot of other raters donít seem to really care much for this beer either, yet theyíre all rating it in the mid 3ís overall... just going with the flow i guess.

BMan1113VR (7868) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 28, 2009
Batch 1, 2009 Bottle thanks to boomer0813 and ericandersnavy. Pours with a huge bone colored head over a hazy golden body. Aroma of ginger, coriander, bread, lemon and orange peel, and a ton of other spices including cardamon, grains of paradise and sage. Taste is very spiced with a bunch of citrus peel, jasmine, sage and bread malts. Very lively/effervescent mouthfeel.

Bottle many thanks to Andy. Beautiful label, and nice-looking hazy bright gold pour, but this beer was just not for me. So much spice. Coriander and grains of paradise and other spices predominant on the nose. Couldnít even really feel out any banana or yeast or citrus. Bummer.
