COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

BadAprilia1000 (327) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 6, 2015
Pours a very hazy dark brown color with a good heavy head made of larger bubbles. Aroma is sweet, malt, molasses, plum, fig, brown sugar, dough, yeast, caramel, raisin, bread. Taste is brown sugar, bread, grain, wheat, then fades into sweet and tangy raisin and plum, fig, a thick caramel and dough note. Great beer, plenty of flavor to cover up the typical thick sweetness of the style, very drinkable.

fajry (906) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 26, 2015
Fľaša. Tmavo hnedá farba, pena skoro žiadna, resp. okamžite padla. Vôňa sladká, ovocná, jemne kávová a karamelová. Chuť plná, na začiatku sladká, neskôr jemne karamel a prezreté slivky, pozadie čokoláda a lkohol. Piteľné pivo.

Moebbels (412) - FINLAND - JAN 21, 2015
A hazy brown body with a rather quickly fading head. Nose has mild aromas of ripe bananas, peppery spices, yeast and cloves. Taste is very mildly sweet with a mildly bitter, peppery finish. Carbonatio is high with large bubbles and palate feels quite rich. A nice weizenbock but Weihenstephaner Vitus and Schnider Aventinus are both better.

JFGrind (1881) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Murky brown full bodied Weizen Bock with bread, banana, and caramel flavors. All comes together to build a primo beer. Only setback poured with a nonexistent head.

Cerveja com coloraçăo marrom clara. Sabor complexo e extremamente harmônico que trás ao paladar os mais diferentes sabores na proporçăo correta. Uma das melhores que bebi.

Shark_Pants (351) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2015
Murky brown with decent off white head. Smells of mild banana bread, cheesy vegemite and dates. The taste is not as sweet as some bocks but is definitely there. Good maltiness, some banana but not a lot else. Medium bodied. Good but not great bock.
