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.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2012 Bottle. Light chocolate malt aroma. Cloudy dark brown color with moderate head. Light chocolate malt flavor. Lightly bitter/ashy aftertaste. This tastes more like a regular dunkel - minimal Weizen characteristics. Not a bad beer but a huge disappointment when expecting a Weizen.

650ml bottle pours dark brown in color with some red highlights and has a finger of off-white head that settles to leave some thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel with mild chocolate and light fruits with hints of yeast. Taste is caramel and light chocolate malt sweetness with some hints of fruit and a surprisingly citrusy hop bitterness in the finish. A bit bitter for the style, but that makes it even more enjoyable for my tastes, as I sometimes find these styles too sweet.

I was hopeful on this one, I really like a good dunkel....unfortunately it was lacking intensity, and really lacking the wheat and hefe component, no vanilla or banana. It will get you by, but I just wasn’t that impressed and see it as an average dunkel.

Pours a soft ruby copper with one finger of crackling off white head. Nose is not so hot, acidic grain and soy sauce. Estery with some notes of cacao and grain. Slightly saline flavor and grainy notes followed by some caramel and chocolate Light body.

Bottle. Dark and opaque, with a head that gives up pretty quickly. This drinks with a chocolate sweetness, and a smoky edge on top. There’s nary a hint of any yeast or wheaty grist in this. In a blind test, I’d peg this a smoked porter perhaps. Enjoyable, but a little off of the dunkelweizen label. (#4595, 5/13/2012)

Pours out a dark opaque brown with light amber notes and a thick two finger yellow head and a few lacing rings. The nose is a very cereal and grainy with nice chocolate notes and a mild hop. This is an odd nose for a Dunkel. The taste has a delicious, chewy malt with good chocolate notes and nutty,woody notes. This is a tasty brew overall.
