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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Vignale (4118) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2015
Flaska från SB. Ibland blir inte dubbelt så mycket dubbelt så bra. Större kropp, högre sötma, mer kryddor. Får lite stor uppsötad belgisk blond men lite mer vetesyrlighet. Blir mycket blommig och fruktig parfym med apelsinskal, lavendel, koriander, blomstervatten. Lätt kvalmig men vetesyrligheten räddar upp det lite. Roligt men lite väl mycket tant.
