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.

Excessive packaging for an average beer. Came in a cardboard magnetic sommelier case with two glasses and a Latin-German looking woman and Erdinger advertising all over the box. I can’t figure out whether they think people will keep the box or not. It has a magnet in it. But it’s cardboard. Anyway, dark brown bandy, off-white head, soapy lacing, looks fairly attractive, like the box...but when you inspect closely it’s good, but not as fancy as you might be expecting...just like the box. Sweet grain, dried fruit aroma, a bit of yeastiness, lactose. Taste is semi-sweet, and I see in the deScription that it’s not going to be "too sweet, as is the case with so many bock beers." I would argue they played it a bit too safe on this one. The taste is not as flavourful as I would have hoped. Pleasant sweet grains. Over all, decent.

peponi (1228) - Mainz, GERMANY - OCT 19, 2015
Aroma: roasted dark malts, banana, cloves. Appearance: hazy brown color and nice beige head. Taste: low bitterness, roasted dark malts, cloves, banana, warming alcohol, quite zesty, dry. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, roasted finish. Overall: Good weizenbock, maybe alcohol should be better covered.

UXO (1252) - CANADA - AUG 29, 2015
Appearance: hazy brown with two fingers of fluffy light tan head, good retention and patchy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: banana, dark fruit, toffee, vinous. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, very mild bitter. (7/10) Palate: full body, moderate to low carbonation, lingering warming finish. (4/5) Pretty in-spec example of the style. Mild and smooth, perhaps a bit too much so: the utter absence of hop character is normal, but a little more intensity across the board would be nice. Still, easy-drinking and good. (15/20)
