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.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2007
Impenetrable deep brown pour with heaped cappuccino suds. Rich, chocolate raisiny snout with a sniff of yeast. Creamy burnt chocolate maltiness with hints of banana, dark fruit, booze and Erdinger’s characteristic note of woodsy dryness. Quite a dry finish followed by some mellow wheatiness after the swallow. An excellent balance of malty sweetness and roasty bitterness.

500ml bottle - Pours dark brown with a medium head and no lacing. The aroma is malts, bananas, and yeast. The flavor has a hint of banana as well and the wheat comes through well. It has a medium body and lively carbonation, and finishes a little dry.

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - FEB 17, 2007
This has 08 2006 on the back, so it may be past it’s prime. Let’s find out. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with some red highlights when held up towards a light. The beige colored head peaks at two fingers, and fades slowly to a soapy cap that leaves behind a thick sheeting of lace. Smell; the aroma is a bit tame here, but there are some hints of wheat with a little bit of lemon. Some sweet caramel malts and a touch of a spiciness are present along with a touch of chocolate. But as I said it’s all very mild in the aroma department. Taste; mm...much better. The wheat is much more present in the flavor, with a nice spiciness that mixes very nicely with the caramel and chocolate malts. After a few sips the lemon shows itself with a bit of herbal hops. Mouthfeel/Drinkability; Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with a nice creamy feel to it, and has a really good drinkability.

Bottle from the cooler in Irma. Dark brown hazy colour with a big creamy long lasting brown head. Sweet fruity aroma with caramel, malts and some alcohol. Flavour of sweet caramel, medium roasted malts, and alcohol, bit siruppy. Hoppy bit dry sweet finish. Warms up your belly!

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2007 I’m not a big fan of wheat beers, but after I had a small affair with Aventinus, I decided to pick this one up too. It’s not Aventinus, but it’s damn good. For someone who doesn’t enjoy the sweet and bananalike flavours, it’s THE weissbeer. Small honey melon tones with absolutely wonderful mouthfeel. I don’t know if it’s bottle conditioned, but it sure feels like it. Kind of a bitter and dry after taste. One of the best looking beers, it’s totally dark brownish black with a nice lasting head.

Bottle (from Bitter Virtue). Toffee and sweet malty aromas. Sweet and fruity without much else happening in the mouth. I didnt particularly enjoy this.

IrishBoy (4110) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JAN 23, 2007
Bottle; Nose is caramelly malt, with some wheat, and lots of bananas; hazy brown with a big, glass-lacing straw-colored head; flavor is semi-sweet caramel and banana, with a tingly mouthfeel, and a mild hop note in the finish. Seems like a good session beer to me!

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.
