COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Caramel malt aroma. Fairly dark brown, more than I would expect. Flavors are very roasted, more so than I would want for this style. Not like a traditional dunkelweizen, and the estery clove, banana flavors are not noticeable at all. I would call this more an american dark wheat ale. Not bad nonetheless and has good malt presence.

Poured a cloudy brownish amber with an offwhite head and some floaties in it. Aroma is caramel, nuts, cereal, toast, and very faint coffee. Taste is caramel, sour, coffee, with a sweet and sour finish.

Not do bad. Quite weizen alike but not much flavour, just sweet aroma and some clove hints.

VAYankee (327) - Virginia, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Deep brown coloring with a frothy head. Aroma is mild; includes malt, wheat, caramel, a little yeast. Thin, light bodied palate. Flavor is slightly grassy, mildly malty, and a little sour. Finishes with a slight but lingering bitterness. Overall not a great representative of the style.

12 ounce bottle. Pours brown with a nice off-white head. Aroma of malt, yeast, caramel, and a bit of hops. Taste is wheat, citrus, yeast, caramel, and chocolate. Pretty tasty.

Syzzer (590) - Oregon, USA - JAN 1, 2013
The nose is a nice marbled rye, a real bready malt. The flavor is somewhat similar yet is somewhat inhibited. It is a clear dark brown color, light carbonation with a weak head. A sweet character with light hops. Definite chocolatey wheat after taste. 8.75 BD

I do not feel that this beer meets the styles. Also had some tasting defects like a papery taste.

superspak (2565) - Michigan, USA - OCT 31, 2012
12 ounce bottle into weizen glass, no bottle dating. Pours hazy reddish brown color with a nice 1-2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Some nice soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of ripe banana, caramel, biscuit, nuttiness, chocolate, molasses, toast, clove, roasted malt, earth, and light yeast spiciness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance. Taste of chocolate, banana, toast, caramel, biscuit, nuttiness, roasted malt, toffee, pepper, earth, and light yeast spiciness. Lingering notes of chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, banana, toast, nuttiness, and clove on the finish for a bit. Nice balance of flavors with decent complexity; though it does feel a bit on the watery side; no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a nice and interesting take on a dunkelweizen. Nice roasted flavors with decent balance of fruitiness; very smooth and easy to drink. Definitely enjoyed this.
