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.

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. Interesting, to say the least.

Sampled @ omhper, thanks. Big aroma that is both a tiny lactic but also typical wheat. The taste is very nice and complex.

JPDIPSO (5647) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 11, 2016
Lightly hazed amber liquid with a taller light beige head. The aroma of bitters, with coriander, allspice, mace and bitter orange peel all in the mix. Lightly sweet and doughy in the front. Mild spice mix in the middle. Not an overpowering of any spice, but more like a pumpkin pie spice mix. I might think this was a pumpkin ale if given to me blind. Lavender does certainly show up at times. Seem more like a spicy ale, than a brew based on a wit. I like the spices though. I’d like it more if it did have more malt depth, but that wouldn’t fit the style. 7/10

Bomber. Color is a dark orange with slight head. Taste is pleasantly slightly sour. This is a great wit.

Bomber - deep orange color with practically no head. Floral and fruity aroma. A taste of apple juice and some peach, lemon and coriander. Medium body and a wet, fruity finish.

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.

Medium gold pour, decent head leaves quickly. Nose is pixie sticks and wheat. Sweet and sour. Middle is sweet orange and coriander blended with sweet malt and kiwis. Finish sweet malt and spice.

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 (11781) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 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 (1943) - 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
