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.

Medium sourness, lightly bitter, light sweetness, grass, citrus, light body, lively, long finish, pale, hazy, frothy. I think it’s a bit too sour for the style and that lingers a bit too long. The aroma is really striking, complex, yummy.

750 cc from Capone’s. Pours hazy golden with fizzy white head. Nose was limey citrus, hops, coriander. Tasted lightly yeasty, champagney, with heavy carbonation, notes of lime, citrus hops, and pale malt, and a crisp finish.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2014 Pours a dark bronze color with a quick fading white head with no lacing to be seen. Aroma of citrus, funk, and banana. Taste is forward with a tart sour fruit followed by a nice sweetness that finishes clean and leaves a certain effervescence on the palate. Really enjoy this one

The double wit seemed a little too sour for my palate. If you like a sour beer this will make you happy.
