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.

vyvvy (4625) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Pours deep orange / amber with a large light beige head. The aroma has rich wheat, lots of orange, lightly powdery, spices and quite a bit of yeast - nice. Medium / full body with some crispness and good amount of sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with rich wheat, lots of orange, lactic acid, power, but still a good bit of sweetness. The taste is fairly crisp considering the high alcohol. The finish has quite a bit of spice. Very nice beer from Boulevard.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Bottle, thanks to Eugene at the grand tasting. Thick blond pour. Strong banana and candy sugar aroma typical of belgian triples. So, i think a double white is like a belgian triple. Pretty sweet and tasty, syrupy a little in the mouthfeel.

Bottle. Beautiful hazy orangeish brown pour, with a one finger foamy off white head. Aroma of pleasant fruitiness, including, oranges, cherries, spices such as pepper, coriander and clove. Flavor has some tartness and bitterness, and some orange, lemon peel, and bread/yeast.

RSRIZZO (1898) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 13, 2009
Color is a yellow gold with a slight haze. Carbonation is very good with a big rocky white head. Aroma is spicy with scents of coriander and pepper. Taste is peppery and metallic. Starting with a lighter medium body it goes down with a crisp feel. Finish is spicy with flavors of coriander pepper and a hint of orange this is followed by a mild bitterness. After taste is metallic with a little more bitterness hanging on. I was excepting more from this brew, its not bad by any means but also not one of the better Whites I have had. The metallic fades as you drink it and that was the only downfall to it.

marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - JUL 12, 2009
Creamed wheat, orange, and floral yeasty aromas. Rich golden orange color with an off white bubbly head and good lacing. Flavor is bright and fruity. Initial puch of juicy fruit, continues with a spiciness and a light cheese flavor in the finish. Lemon like overtones through the middle. Tartness comes through. Palate is rich enough, sweet and some bitter sourness on the finish. Alcohol is lightly noticable. Nice lingering flavors on the finish. Dry enough but a nice litttle bit of sweetness.

thirdeye11 (5776) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 12, 2009
Pours nice head pale in color. Nose is bready yeast, lemon zest, corander and spices, taste is the same. Overcarbonated, but the body is nice. The lingering sour on the palette is enjoyable as well, but this beer is slightly unbalanced in my opinion.

swanmann (662) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 11, 2009
It poured hazy golden-orange with plenty of sticky off white foam, settling rather quickly. I smell plenty of spices and fruits; cardamom, clove, oranges and alcohol. It tastes slightly tart with nice sweetness from the Belgian yeast. Tremendously drinkable. It’s delicious.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 8, 2009
Batch 1 of 2009. Pours an almost murky, bronze color with vigorous effervescence giving the head a full, very fizzy, white which settles after a minute to a lasting, small to medium, dense head which leaves minimal lace rings. Nose is pretty typical for the style and filled with notes from the adjuncts; coriander is prominent, lots of doughy yeast, banana yeast esters, and undertones of lemon peel, faint orange peel, fresh laverder, light honey, and some toasted grains. Flavor is similar but sweeter and more citrusy; mlat notes of caramel, honey, and whole grain bread, yeast notes of bread dough and some banana esters, more floral or lavender notes than expected, and a definate wit tartness of lemon zest with some orange in there too. Palate is fair with a prickly, lively carbonation, a light to medium body, and a silky but drying mouthfeel; tartness is mildly refreshing and the ABV is very well hidden. Finishes with the bready malt and yeast notes lingering with some coriander and lemon zest left on the tongue. A very solid imperial wit with the palate as the only area lacking. Nice tartness, nice yeast complements, and certainly a flavorful beer. My biggest complaint would be that with the addition of so many adjuncts, it is hard to notice the base beer’s attributes. Either way the adjuncts were not overbearing but were more than complementary. I am looking forward to trying more from this brewery.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 7, 2009
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!
