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.

fiulijn (19872) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 29, 2014
Draught at the brewpub in Everett
Muddy brown color. Also the aroma and flavor are muddy, the wheat is not well defined, and there is a distinct character of stale water; very light banana aroma, mild spicy flavor; ordinary bitterness.
Messy.
