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.

Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle corked and capped poured into a weizen glass. Pours light orange with medium white head. Aroma is cardamom, medium body, well carbonated, and some big bubble lacing. Taste is dominated by spice: cardamom, grains of paradise, and lavender. Too much spice for me, I like richer wits with orange dominant taste.

crossovert (7410) - Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Draft. HaEd honey colored pour. Smell is astringent toward galangal, lavender, and lemongrass, tartness as well. Flavor is tart, not quire sour, heavy urinal cake lavender, wheat, and ginger. Would have gone well with some Brett but a little too much spice and tartneas battling in this one.

BierMeHoos (101) - Maryland, USA - AUG 11, 2014
750 ml bottle. Hazy yellow with huge head. Aroma is clove, various other spices. Taste has a huge lemony-sweet quality. Spices in the background as well as banana. Creamy, slick mouth feel. Overall the aroma and taste are both a little disappointing, but this is a good beer for those who like a little sour. Interesting, to say the least.

Shared 750 ml. bottle, poured to snifters showing a cloudy orange color, with a white, frothy head that rapidly reduced to a ring & film, and left some waves & spray as lacing. The nose was expressive orange and coriander, maybe some "potpourri" spices as ginger & rosemary?, but not much Belgian yeast character. Light bodied, with spritzy carbonation that propelled the lightly sweetened, juicy, but tart flavor nicely. Well disguised alcohol. Refreshing.
