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.

dolemike1 (1288) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2006
Cloudy, dark brown, big tan head, great looking beer, wheat, yeast, banana, dough, and light citrus aroma, flavor is malty, rich, lots of banana, wheat, yeast. Slightly astringent mouthfeel, but not overly unpleasant. Nice beer.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2006
Dark, muddy brown with hints of olive grey: visually one of the least attractive beers I’ve seen. Hence an unprecedented ’1’ for appearance. Sweet, malty aroma with banana - really rather nice. Very fizzy. Almost unpleasantly so. Taste has liquorice and lots of alcohol. Bitterness in the finish seems overwhelmed by everything else. Odd beer. Curiously appealing.

screigh (625) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 4, 2006
Poured the color of Pepsi with a large-bubbled head. That head quickly went away and had no lacing. Aroma is slightly malty and slightly alcoholy with some wheat in the background. Hint of darkrum/fruit followed by wheat. Crisp and light feeling but not really my style.

bb (8314) - Alamo, California, USA - NOV 29, 2006
Bottle. Hazy brown beer with a big beige head. Clove, banana, caramel, and wheat aroma. Yeasty, wheat, slight toffee flavor. Richer bodied. Lingering caramel and spice fading to wheat.

Fukito (1016) - Santiago, CHILE - NOV 18, 2006
Bottle- November 2006. Thanks to ghawener for sharing. Pours an opaque brown color with a huge and creamy beige head. Aroma is of ripe bananas, humidity, earthy, some bread. Taste is caramelly-ripe bananas, caramel, some rum, rich. Mouthfeel is medium to thick. Leaves a pleasant lingering aftertaste.

PeterA (340) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - NOV 18, 2006
Bottle. Strong strawberry aroma. The color was a swampy green brown with a big off-white head. The flavor had lots of licorice. You could feel the alcohol, this beer wasn’t as balanced as it could be. It even had a little bit of a metallic aftertaste. Despite all that I still liked it.

(Bottle) Pours a dark brown body with a large off-white head. Aroma of sweet malt, licorice, and toffee. Flavor of malt and plum.

Stefano (1952) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2006
Dark, murky appearance with a large, fluffy almost white head. Aroma is richly malty with fruit, banana-like esters, spice and some background alcohol. The flavour is sweet and malty with apparent alcohol and some fruit. This is quite drinkable:)

Jabswitch (278) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 29, 2006
Dark mahogany in color. Thick brownish head. True to the brewer’s description, it is not too sweet like some bocks. I guess I prefer a hoppier beer. I could drink one of these occasionally. I am sure that bock lovers would feel this is a very good beer. But to my own taste buds - ehhhh, so-so.
