Boulevard Two Jokers Double-Wit

This 8.0% ABV beer is part of the Smokestack Series from Boulevard Brewing of Kansas City, Missouri. It is a wheat beer using cardamom, coriander, orange peel, lavender and grains of paradise, along with lactic fermentation for tartness.

The beer pours a hazy honey golden in color, tints of orange and dried apricots. There is an inch of white foamy head, alternately bubbly and somewhat creamy. The aroma is huge spices, loads of coriander, lemon, tartness, peppery, toasted wheat. The taste follows the aromas, the main foils being tartness and the loads of spices, it’s like Indian food meets Berliner weisse. It finishes dry and tart, with a tight, tingling and refreshing fine bottle-conditioned carbonation.
