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.

tmoreau (2465) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2014
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.

Very nice. Lots of orange peel zest with coriander. Pours pale golden with OK head and lacing. Light sour finish and lots of tang. Tap at meridian pint.

This is delicious. I can taste the cardamon and lavender. It has a hazy golden color and a spicy citrus aroma. A lightly sour refreshing beer.

Pours clear gold into a tulip. Bright white head with good retention recedes to skim surface leaving spider lacing. Banana, yeast and caramel aromas. Soft with sweet hay and summer fruit upfront turning strangely to tart citrus before the lasting lemon poppy bread finish.

Draft at Frisco Taphouse & Brewery, Columbia, MD. Showed up at the table a hazy copper color with a smallish beige head. The pungent aroma featured lots of coriander, freshly squeezed oranges & zesty rinds, caramel, bananas, cloves, and plenty of spice. Went down relatively full-bodied for the style. The taste started with a fair amount of chewy caramel. Juicy oranges, bananas, cloves, and coriander brought up the rear. Things were quite herbal, wheaty, tart, and spicy throughout. Incredibly tasty and very nicely done.
