Formerly known as Blind Pig Dunkel Weizen

This is a medium-bodied, unfiltered dark wheat beer with a smooth, gently sweet character. The flavor has notes of chocolate and caramel combined with the cereal malt flavor contributed by malted wheat. Blind Pig is a very unique beer with few other examples of the German Dunkel Weizen style brewed in the Northwest, and certainly none as tasty.

(12oz bottle). Pours hazy cola color with khaki head. Aroma has caramel, spice and some fruit. Taste is sweet with some roast and maybe some smoke? Medium bodied with sticky texture. Smooth finish. Ok beer.

Chocolate and clove nose. Murky brown, medium yellow head. Nutty pecan, with bark accents. Some wheat bread in the finish, tangy throughout. Sessionable, yet rustic. Could pass for a brown ale.

Drake (11937) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 8, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Total Wine West Richmond, VA. Pours a brown color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma of wheat, grain, slight roasty notes. The taste is tart wheat notes, chocolate, tart finish. Thin bodied. Weird one. Bad bottle I hope.

The aroma leaves something to be desired it’s dirty and metallic with toasted malt, caramel, and chocolate. The appearance is medium brown with an average head. The taste is like the aroma but better. The palate is a tad bit thin. Overall a serviceable beer but not great.

Dark nut brown color, small beige head. Caramelly, lightly toasted aroma. Light to medium bodied. Caramelly with some estery notes and light toastyness. Quite sweet; caramel-malty dunkelweizen.

dark reddish brown, with a bit head made of big long lived bubbles. Nose is malts and bread. Taste is clean, malty, a bit of hops, a bit sweet.

Dark brown pour. Toffee, dates, caramel, multi grain bread aromas. Flavor is sweet, raisins, figs, dates, toffee. Damn good.

dwyerpg (5683) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 17, 2011
My main thought is that this is pretty hoppy for a dunkelweizen. A nice appearance. A creamy head with a kick. Flavor is really quite good. Creamy and hoppy and not really wheat. Quite surprised and impressed.

dchmela (3013) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Pours a deep reddish brown with a thick off white head. Nice roasted grain aroma with a hint of chocolate. Smooth malt body, hints of roasted grain, chocolate and wheat. While a good beer, I was looking a bit more from this, more yeast flavor would have been nice.

Great overall beer. Smooth pour with medium head. Was very surpassed at a 4.7 beer content. Loved it.
