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.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2007 Bottled. A beautiful brown beer with dark orange notes and a large, dense beige head. Nice carbonation too. Sweet, malty, toffe aroma. The flavor is much the same, with bitterness added, and quite long-lasting. Fizzy mouthfeel and full body. I was a bit disappointed over this one, expected more from a beer of this style, but it is definately not a bad beer. (060206)

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 29, 2006
Tasted 28/01/2006. 500ml bottle-conditioned ale from Rumble’s, Wellington. Odd murky-brown appearance, reminiscent of muddy water. Collapsing light-tan head that ends up as an oily film. Mild, but complex, nose gives off chocolate, banana cake batter, dough, yoghurt, caramel dairy food, cloves. Sweet and yeasty -like a partially fermented wort. Quite sweet up front, in the mouth, with a chocolatey, winey, warming, alcoholic middle. The finish is woody spices - cloves and cinammon - and lingers for quite some time. Prickly carbonation, light-medium weight, great drinking. Sip this instead of taking desert; 500ml can easily be shared.

BeerBlockaid (683) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JAN 14, 2006
Dark coca cola pour with a mocha head. Well laced. Nose is sweet malts, brown sugar and some licorice. Taste falls in over mild spices like clove and licorice, malts, and caramel-o-sugar. Aftertaste brings up uncomplex, yet well suited dark fruits like raison and plum. Didnt get any chocolate in this like i wanted, but overall, it was rather satisfying. There was even a bit of a smokey atmosphere here and there.

A little disspaointing too, but the colour is great, looks like chocolate, the name reminds me something spicy, although I guess is nothing like that the meaning.

A really nice Weiss bock kind of thing, a little less picant than Schneider-Weiss Aventinus, and a little tastier and more drinkable. Really impressive beer brought to me once again, by Roger F from High Point/Rammstein.

ALLOVATE (2652) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 5, 2006
Tasted this one on New year’s eve, about a dozen or so, and thankfully no hang over the next morning. God bless the Purity Law. I must say the last bottle went down with the same degree of ease as the first, if my memory serves me correctly! Poured into it’s own tall weissbier glass, cool and not cold (...when I took notes. The rest were chilled). Honestly looks like mud, but in a good way. Opaque, syrupy, reddish chestnut brown with an exorbitant amount of bubbles releasing to atmosphere and raising up and enormous, bubbly thick beige head that would not budge for the length making tasting it a bit of a chore. Not overly generous in the nose, but pleasant enough; doughy, biscuity sweet with rich notes of toffee, cocoa, bready yeast and lightly spicy dried fruits. Yum! Similarly malty in the mouth with Erdinger’s trademark gassy carbonation waning quickly making it smooth and well rounded for the length. Biscuity, dryish wheat and barley malts, burnt sugar and a little burnt wood, and cocoa flavours fill the mouth. An underlying note of toffee strengthens, with a little caramel and zesty fruits, as I held it in the mouth and the finish leaves notes of pudding desserts to linger long afterwards. Alcohol is seamlessly integrated and offers only a light prickle and a dry feel before the swallow. Quite a tasty number. One I am certain to try again. Cheers!! (50cL, Morley Liquor Merchants, BBE 08/06)

Radek Kliber (6691) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 3, 2006
Dark brown with some ruby light, pours huge creamy, rocky head. Aroma, wheat, yeast and malt all blended in one junction. Clean hoppy aroma on top . Full malts, cherry fruit, yeast and spice. Bubblegum, fruity roundness. Complex.
