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.

Full disclosure: I’m nuts about the Smokestack Series and a pretty big fan of Boulevard in general. That said, I never labelled Two Jokers as a beer I absolutely wanted to try. Don’t know why, it just never intrigued me. That was then. As of now, I vow to have this beer again. Two Jokers is something special. The smell is impossibly good. Perhaps the best-smelling beer I’ve ever encountered, including some of the incredible tropical aromas I’ve inhaled from my favorite Double IPA’s. Two Jokers smells like someone combined Belgian yeast, an Indian spice cabinet, fresh lavender, and orange juice. Just... it’s insanely good. I’m struggling to describe how awesome it is. Flavor is phenomenal, too. Sweet, juicy orange, light tartness, lemon, savory spices, and mild funk. Beautiful beer, too. Lovely pale yellow and even more lovely head. Basically, jokes on me for not wanting to try this. Yes, I did just make a terrible pun. Not even sorry.

On draught. pours a hazy yellow, with a fluffy white head that slowly fades, leaving good lacing. Nose is Belgian yeast, cloves, bananas, etc. Taste is delicious--tart but not astringent, with a very nice balance of tartness and fruit. Outstanding.

A- Strong spices, cloves, coriander, pepper, lavender, orange peel, citrus, wheat.
A- Golden orange color, hazy liquid, white head.
T- Lots of spices, cloves, coriander, caradmom, lavender, pepper, orange, lemon, citrus, wheat,
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, spiced finish.
O- Belgian Wits were my original favorites in craft beer when I started, then I gradually got more into Stouts and Porters. Well I am here to say this beer just reconfirmed why my love for Belgian Whites will never fade. A ton of spice and nice orange flavors make this beer the best thing I have drank in some time. Split a bomber with a friend and was prepared to take his life to get the rest back. Okay, maybe not that aggressive, but when faced with my friendship or this beer, the decision would be tough. If you don’t get the picture from that you won’t appreciate how great this is. I need more. That’s all I can say about that.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
750 ml bottle Batch 1. Consumed in a BLVD Smokestack Series glass. Color was somewhat yellow orange that was sort of hazy. Poured with a nice head that partially dissipated. Lots of carbonation that lasted the entire time the beverage was consumed. The first thing noticeable was the tartness of the beer. However, in no way does that take away from this gem. Coriander is noticeable and there are hints of citrus and wheat. Medium light body. Once again, the Smokestack Series does not disappoint. This beer is incredibly enjoyable. Not like other wit beers that I have had, but I would choose this over Allagash White or Hoegaarden any day.

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.

I love how the 2011 version wasn’t as sweet, it balanced it out a bit more.

Beautiful light orange pour with a citrus and spice filled nose. Flavor was clean and refreshing with a nice white head. Felt very nice on the palate and had a very nice balance. (not too sweet, sour, bitter, etc). a great witbier.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2011 Bottle @ home. Slightly hazy appearance but not as hazy as some Witbiers. The appearance is also pale yellow with a big yellowish white head. Nose is a light Belgian wheat smell with notes of lemon zestiness, black pepper, corriander, cardamom, and cloves. Lemon citrusy flavor to begin following through with a light and not too yeasty of a white beer body. Spicy flavor again with hints of cardamom, corriander, and black pepper. Somewhat sour lemon-y finish. Even though this is 8.0% ABV, the alcohol is undetectable. It’s a very spicy Belgian Witbier and makes for a very interesting and complex beer. What a marvelous beer!
