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.

750ml corked and caged courtesy of theisti – thanks Tim! Pours a cloudy orange with a 3 finger off-white head that leaves thick, but slick lacing. The nose is spicy yeast, coriander and orange zest. The taste is malt, spicy yeast, citrus and white pepper with a crisp light fruity/banana finish. Medium prickly mouthfeel. Very refreshing on this hot 106 degree day. Good Wit – thanks again Tim!

Bottle from mar, thanks my friend!! Pours a hazy yellowish color with a fluffy whtie head. I liked this. Aroma is full of wheat, coriander, lemon, banana and lots of yeast. Flavor is tart and lemony with lots of yeast, wheat, spices and some funky notes as well. A nice beer.

CanIHave4Beers (3487) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUL 2, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2009 Pours a hazy orange with a loose but big head that diminishes and tightens up a bit. The aroma is complex and a little wild with spicy clove, bubblegum, ginger, orange banana, pineapple and some yeast. The flavor has a great sweet on dry balance. Flavors include but are not limited to spicy ginger, orange, cognac, a menagerie of spices, some booze but not too harsh. I know this would not hold up well to ageing, without the spices I’m afraid this would be a boozy mess, but as it sits right now it is very tasty.

beernbourbon (1357) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUN 27, 2009
Bottle. Pour is cloudy yellow with large white head. Aroma is sour wheat, faint sweetness, green olives, and grass. Flavor is strong wheat, mild green olive, a touch of barnyard funk and hay. It’s solid, but not quite cohesive with a bit of alcohol in the finish.

tjthresh (1866) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - JUN 26, 2009
750 ml bottle served in my old school Boulevard Smokestack glass. Pours cloudy ornage-yellow with scan white head. The nose is dominated with lavender and reminds me of Avery Twelve. Very perfumy. It appears that I enjoyed the Avery, but I’m not feeling this. Lots of flowers in the flavor as well, with a little bit more of a peppery and citrus note. Doughy body with sprite carbonation. A little bit of extra heat on the finish. Not much of a fan.

bhensonb (11901) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 25, 2009
Bottle from Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa. Pours hazy orange gold with a 4 finger white head. Aromas of coriander and likely orange zest. Spice. Medium plus body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is wheat, orange zest, banana?, and clove. Sure it’s banana. Finishes rather clove. Not a light beer. Really pretty good stuff. Peppery bits started popping up. Yum.
