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.

Used to get this in a Party Pig from the Leavenworth Brewery. Have not had in while, but to this day it remains my favorite. Beautiful creamy head with a zesty start and a smooth finish. Great anytime!

Perhaps this beer has declined in quality over the past few years, but when I first tried it in 2000 or so I was bowled over. Grayish/brownish body with a lighter, heavy, tall head. Smooth, unfiltered flavor with some yeast but much more flavorful and roasty than a hefeweizen (of course).

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.

Anthony’s - Bellingham, WA Wow, creamy and sweet like a hef but ful of robust chocolate, roasted malt, caramel flavors. Very filling like an oatmeal stout but easy to drink.

On tap at the Alehouse in U.P. When actually brewed in Leavenworth, this was one of my least favorites of the lineup, but the Fish crew has steadily improved this brew, and it’s now among my favorites. Muddy chocolate color, roasty malts and the banana/clove wheat notes combine to make this a wonderful session beer. However, keep your gear clean for this one, publicans --it doesn’t tolerate mishandling well.

On tap at brewpub. This dunkel pours a medium brown color. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is malt and grain, with some roasty malts and chocolate. A medium to light bodied dunkel. Malts are fruity and sweet, a touch roasty with a hint of chocolate. Some grain and grass. Hop are slightly spicy and a touch floral. Nice balance. Light and refreshing, with just the right amount of chocolate malt flavors. Crisp and clean. An excellent session beer. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly sweet with some chocolate.
