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.

bgiamatei (317) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - JAN 18, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2007 Cerveja de trigo, alta fermentação, escura, com coloração caramelo escuro. Sabor complexo, forte, ligeiramente adocicado, amarga, deixando um pequeno formigamento na língua, uma cerveja encorpada. O aroma é de cerveja escura, bastante presente porém não rouba a cena. A espuma, sempre presente, é ambar. A graduação é alta, deve-se pegar leve. Não agadou de início, porém no final estava muito boa, talves num dia frio.////. Strong beer, very dark orange color, acetc taste, amber head. Good, but not so good.

Tejas (928) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Brownish burgundy color. Good bubbly tan head. Little malty aroma. Tingly palate. I don’t detect much wheat flavor in this one. In fact I thought this one lacked flavor as a whole. I think I need to sample again to see if I’m missing something.

KnutAlbert (6377) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2007
Purs with a large, but rapidly collapsing, head. A dunkel hefe is by definition murky rown, perhaps not the most beautuful colour. Sweetis, with some toens of brown toast. Deceivingly easy-drinking, but tere is a warming afterglow.

skoisirius (1845) - Earth, Washington, USA - JAN 8, 2007
16.9 oz bottle. Pours a deep murky brown with a big foamy beigeish head. The aroma brings an surprisingly berryish and bananay with deep sweet malts intertwined. The flavor is quite excellent starting with a wheaty malted flavor that moves into a burnt bananay and spiced body with a kick to it. Clove comes to mind. Again, deep (even toffeeish) malts are very present, but extremely balanced. Full flavored and mediumy bodied, this is an excellent beer. A small alcohol singe ends this one with a great lingering aftertaste of many of the flavors throughout. Great brew!

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 7, 2007
Bottle. Dark muddy brown with a big light brown head. Good lacing. Nice fruity malt aroma. Scents of yeast, chocolate and caramel. Taste is toasted sweet dark malts, mild spices and alcohol. Well rounded and balanced. Full-bodied. Smooth mouthfeel. Warming and slight bitter and fruity/sweet finish. Enjoyable.

Lilith (242) - Santiago, CHILE - JAN 4, 2007
Murky, muddy water appeareance. Medium off-white head with a great lacing. Cerealish aroma, sugar, coffee, some tartness and slightly alcoholic. Flavor is bitter, somewhat fruity. Juicy texture, softly carbonated.

Panzerfaust (613) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - JAN 2, 2007
Pours a deep, murky brown color. Head is huge creamy beige. It diminishes really slowly and leaves a thin film and a nice lacing. Aroma is very malty with clear notes of caramel, some herbs, wheat, cognac or maybe rum and plums. Everything ornamented with hints of cinnamon, raisins and red grapes. Low hop presence. I’m seduced. Flavor is rich, sweet with high malty presence and very fruity. It has notes of liquor, plums, blueberries, figs and touches of port wine. Body is big with the texture of a fruit nectar. Low carbonation. Finish is long, strong and alcoholic. It leaves a lingering aftertaste. A very pleasant beer of a new style for me.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 24, 2006
500 ml bottle from Beers of the World in Rochester, NY (October 2006) consumed from a Ramstein weizen glass at cellar temperature, November 2006. Musty dark walnut in color, impossibly immense and lasting fluffy light tan-brown bubbly head, huge chunky tufts of lacing, magnificent....chocolaty notes, a bit of wine and raisins in the nose, spices rather faint, faint fruity esters, pleasant enough but without real depth or power....much nice on the tongue, cocoa both milky and bittersweet, lightly sour and bready, thick nicely unfiltered mouthfeel, vanilla and a bit of mushy cooked banana in the middle changing to darker, charred/burnt malts at the finish....strong but supple, fluffy carbonation. Very, very nice on the whole.
