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.

12oz bottle: Pours a mostly transparent dark mahogany with copper hues and a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a dry toasted nutty nose with some doughy yeasty notes. Starts with pretty good fullness and dark wheat sweetness balanced with a touch of clove spice before a drier bittersweet finish. True to style and drinkable.

From tap at Taphouse Grill. Pours hazy dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is dark roasted malty and light caramelish. Sweet caramelish, dark roasted and mild fruity. Lingering dark roasted malty, vague bitterness and lingering dark malty finish.

Cybercat (4085) - Georgia, USA - MAR 8, 2012
Malty aroma has a subtle fruity underpinning and a hint of cloves. It pours a dark, rather hazy mahogany with a decent, fine-bubbled, light tan head that leaves some good lacing. Flavor has a malty core and fruity, caramel and nutty notes. Smooth Texture has average body but a good amount of fizz.

Less aromatic than many German Dunkelweizens the label writes a rustic cheque the nose can’t cash. The beer still does have classic Dunkelweizen character. Sweet malt notes of caramel, mocha, and chocolate. The malted wheat shines through with notes of orange creamsicle, lemon curd, and a blossoming wet earth. Mild alcohol, a fair mousse with a slightly soapy feel, and a sweet yet bitter and salty finish make this beer, if not memorable, easily enjoyable.

Bottle. Clear maroon color, thick beige head with good retention, solid lacing. Aroma of milk chocolate and burnt caramel. Taste is bittersweet chocolate. Not bad.

JFGrind (1918) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2012
Mahogany medium bodied wheat and caramel bready Dunkelweizen. If you told me it was brewed by an old German brewery I’d believe it. Very drinkable session beer.

hopscotch (10130) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2012
Bottle… Pours mostly clear and brown with a small, creamy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. The bouquet is biscuity and nutty with undertones of caramel and chocolate – this all adds up to a French toast-like quality. Medium-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor is malty and rich. Not overly sweet. Toasty, caramely and lightly chocolaty. Finishes malty and hearty with a kiss of toffee. Doesn’t really resemble a dunkelweizen. Probably why I like it so much.
