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.

kramer (5770) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy brown body with a one finger frothy beige head that left some nice lacing. The nose is a nice mix of earthy dark wheat and yeast with some light roast and coffee. The flavor is pretty solid as well, a heavy dark wheat with the right amount of yeastiness that fades to a coffee laced and lightly roasty finish. There’s not a ton of yeast in here, but it definitely comes through nicely. Medium bodied with a softness lent by the yeast and a gentle fizzy carbonation level. Pretty nice Dunkleweizen, better than their Hefe.

mansquito (5109) - Nueva York, New York, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Total Wine, Fairfax twelve ounce: Pours dark brown with a greyish head. Aroma is light chocolate, yeast, some roast, and slight fruitiness. It is not a bad dunkeweizen... Pretty light. Not bad.

Hanuta06 (440) - Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Serving: from tap at Fish Tale Brew Pub. Aroma: light malt. Appearance: no head with no lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, cola-brown body. Taste: lightly sour initial flavor and lightly sour, roasty finish with short duration. Palate: light bodied with watery texture and lively carbonation. Overall: nothing special.

this was a random pickup in Seattle when the mood for a dark wheat hit, but it was average in just about every possible way. the only thing that stood out a little was the slight tobacco aspect in the flavor, which was cool. a little too light and simple otherwise."

Draught at the brewpub in Everett
Muddy brown color. Also the aroma and flavor are muddy, the wheat is not well defined, and there is a distinct character of stale water; very light banana aroma, mild spicy flavor; ordinary bitterness.

Rated from notes taken 7 Aug 2011 -- A marginal Dunkel, flavor was there, but watery. Would much prefer a more assertive profile.

Fatehunter (2152) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Pours a half finger of head on a dark brown, almost black body. The aroma has some chocolate malt, and some burnt malt. The taste starts with burnt malt, and dies out with some chocolate and mild sweet note. Short but good profile. The texture is crisper with soft edges. It tastes more like a black lager than a dunkelweizen. Either way it’s not bad.

Prufrockstar (1901) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Draft at Olympia brewpub. Pours dark brown with ruby highlights and white head. Cherry, caramel, chocolate. Wheat. No cloves or banana. Taste: moderately sweet, malt-forward. Not a lo of depth, but nice. Roasty, pleasant, with medium body and a slick oily texture.

weihenweizen (3030) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours opaque dark brown with medium brown highlights with small beige head. Aroma is chocolate, medium body, medium carbonation, and some medium bubble lacing. Taste is chocolate and herbal hops. Hop forward for a dunkleweizen, not my thing.
