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.

I thought this was a porter. But it's not according to the can. It's a dark wheat ale. It reminds me of kona brewing co. Pipeline porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lots of chocolate malt. Some weizen qualities. Served with a fine thick creamy head & a little lace. Doesn’t resemble a traditional Dunkelweizen too much.

Bottle to shaker glass. Pours deep reddish black, fast vanishing head, no lace, no retention. Aroma of dark chocolate. Taste is mainly sweet with a nice bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, silky mouth feel. Finishes malty sweet. Tasting notes of banana, chocolate, smoked wheat malt, caramel, dates and coffee. This is my first dunkel, mainly because I don’t care for wheat beers but this is a surprise! I actually like this beer!

kramer (6908) - 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 (6971) - 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.
