Lovers of strong beer need not worry that ERDINGER Weissbier Pikantus 'dark bock beer' is going to be too sweet, as is the case with so many bock beers. Despite the higher alcohol content, the Erding brew masters have succeeded in retaining the special Pikantus taste.

glennmastrange (2241) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle. Moderate roasted and cereal for the malt, light herbs for the hops and dough for the yeast, with over ripe banana, cinnamon, clove and cola. Head is large, frothy, light tan with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is hazy brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and faintly bitter, then finishes lightly sweet anf faintly bitter. Palate is medium, watery with a lively carbonation and a lightly alcoholic finish. A tasy mid-morning weizen Bock.

RaduLuchian (39) - München, GERMANY - JUL 4, 2014
Poured from 500ml bottle with very opaque dark brown color, murky body with very tall light brown head that lasted fairly little, settling at about 5mm until the end. Smell of dark chocolate and carameled sugar. Slight bittery taste of roasted malt, some fruit and traces of wheat. A fairly complex and interesting beer.

Bottle from old backlog notes 07. Pours a hazy brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have dark fruits, caramel, wheat malts, some toasted character, earth, not bad, the body is on the lighter side.

Bottle. Cloudy dark brown, no head. Sweet dark malts which are very noticeable in the nose and aftertaste and includes a very small roasted flavour. A touch sticky.
