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.

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.

scottw86 (1127) - Maryland, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Poured a hazy dark brown color with almost no head. Aroma has lots of milk chocolate and toffee. Taste has a good amount of roasted flavors with sweet chocolate. Some slightly fruity notes as well. A tiny bit of wheat flavors, but not a lot. A bit nutty and creamy with vanilla in the finish. Overall very nice.

strongpieman (1542) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - DEC 15, 2011
Bottle. Deep brown, cloudy, pours with a thick head that disappeared pretty quickly. Caramel, chocolate malt aroma, smooth with carbonation appearing more in the finish. Overall a pretty decent beer in this style.

AirForceHops (3530) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 4, 2011
12 oz. bottle from Table and Vine, West Springfield, MA. Lightly hazy Brown in color. Label has best before Aug, notch. A tab past prime… Small, light white head. Nose is toasted malt. Flavor has a weak wheat character, along with some apple sweetness and ripe fruit. Some caramel rounds out the flavors. Bit thin on the palate. My overall impression is; it’s a drinkable brew but on the lower end of the style. Not bad and doesn’t have any major flaws…. I’m going to have to find a fresher bottle. Wheat beers need to be fresh, this bottle was a bit past its prime.

TheEpeeist (3401) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2011
12 oz bottle. Deep crimson brown with a coating and a few bubbles. Nose is dark toffee, dates and subtle smoke. Medium body with a scratchy buzz; a bit syrupy. Taste is barely sweet apple, burnt grass and green banana. Not too bad but strange for the style.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Bottle:   Dark caramel, very dirty, some reddish hues, sediment, moderate sudsy off-white head falls quickly, sparce lacing.   Wheaty nose, sweet, mild roasted malts and grassiness.   Pale wheatiness on the tongue, very light.   A little bready, very minor fig/date/raisin.   Hmmm, not very heavy, or should I say full bodied.   Better than the other few Leavenworth brews I have had, but not quite up to par with German examples.   Okay beer, average, and not as fake as I would have expected.   Not a ringing endorsement, but its okay.

gpekar (470) - Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2011
Poured a lightly hazy dark chestnut brown, along the lines of a strong iced tea. There was a good foamy tan head full of large bubbles. The head became more creamy as it settled to about 1/2". The was some light floral aroma, as well as some citrus and mild caramel. The beer had a nice caramel flavor initiallly along with some earthiness. There was just a hint of hops in the middle and some chocolate there too. All the flavors blend and mellow out to just an average finish

boxofrane (2259) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Bottle. Pours deep brown with little head. Smells bready with some sweet tones. A good beer for autumn days but won’t warm you up enough in the winter.
