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.

The sole reason I bought this beer when i saw it is that it was ’born in’ Kansas City, just like I was. Pours a beautiful hazy blonde with a lovely coriander-orange-lavender nose. On the tongue, delicate feathers of malt hit the palate with a nice balance between the malt, sour, spice, and floral components. I’m glad i saved this one for autumn; the ’double’ strength of this beer pushes it firmly from summer into autumn. A beautiful beer, i hope to get to have it in the future.

Rated based on notes taken 4 Nov 2012 -- Drank at the Alamo Theater, San Antonio. Dang good Wit. Interesting choice to turn into a double-version. Turned out pretty good though.

A: Lime, lemon peel, pomegranat, blood orange, green apple T: cardamom, fresh figs, lime, raisins, coriander, lavender O: Quite tart for a wit, heavy on nose but more simpel on taste. Nice one with similarity to a saison.

Drake (11500) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2015
750 mL bottle from Ommegang. Hazy golden, large foamy off-white head, good retention. Aroma of strong lemon, lemongrass, wheat, coriander. The taste is wheat, tropical fruits, lime, citrus, lemongrass, candied lemon, spicy finish. Medium bodied, bright, high carbonation, quite drinkable.

NordicV (1821) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2015
Dimmig orange öl med vitt skum. Mycket örtig och parfymerad doft med vissa citrustoner. I smaken så kommer även traditionell wit-jästighet. Förvånansvärt nog känns den lite tunn i kroppen.

Pours an amber body with a medium head. Really nice aroma with flowery tones and a little funkiness. Fresh taste with tones of summer and flowers. All topped off with a nice carboration. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Peter_L (1226) - SWEDEN - APR 5, 2015
Rate från baklogg. Flaska från SB. Orangefärgad vätska med bitar av apelsinskal. Doftar som en blandning av kryddad julöl, tysk weissen och belgisk saison. Inte lätt att förstå bryggarens intention. Nu blir det lite av varje och ett tydlig bevis att delarna tillsammans inte bygger en större helhet.
