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.

PorterPounder (5659) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2004
Picked up at Whole Foods in Austin, Tx. Dark purple to jet black pour with a thin and quickly dissipating off white head. Winey, woody, aroma with some cherry and pipe tobacco notes. Flavor has some of the same notes with some alcohol notes wandering around in the background. Detect a little bit of licorice as well. Clean mouthfeel. Although you can sense the alcohol, it is hidden quite well and not distracting.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - OCT 30, 2004
0.5 l bottle. Dark brown and cloudy with a nice tan head. Wheaty carmel malty aroma. Thick malty flavor. Carmel, wheat, banana, clove. has that German maltiness that is not found in most American counterparts. Decent, but there are better examples.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 28, 2004
Hazy mahogney color with a large light tan head. Aroma of plum and figs, with some light notes of clove and nutmeg, and cocoa. Malty with some dark fruit notes. Light spice (clove) and wheat . Sharp carbonation feel on the tounge. Not bad.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2004
Unclear dark brown beer with a thick light tan head. Strong fruity aroma with toffee and alcohol tones. Heavy flavor. Sweet caramel and way too much alcohol. Some fruit also but where is the wheat? Too alcoholic and cloying and definately not my kind of beer.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 5, 2004
Appearance: murky, nearly opaque brownish color, more visible at foot’s bottom, with a largely, puffy light tannish head. Aroma: soft& creamy, some rustic tinges, a hint of earthiness and spices, whiffs of fruit, subtle, sophisticated. Taste: full greeting on the tongue and lips, a solid, malty presence. Large-bodied, not lacking a thing in texture, most mouth-filling. Dazzling, tantalizing, tingly, nicely hopped, fresh flavor remains distinct throughout...nutty, spicy, slightly fruity, though that aspect is none-too pronounced. After some underwhelmed encounters with their other weizens, I was happy to be more satisfied with this Erdinger brew. A very nice dunkel, and an even better weizenbock! Drinkability is quite good, as I thirsted for more, when the bottle was drained!

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - SEP 29, 2004
Clear dark brown with a towering tan head that collapses on the edges leaving a pile of dense foam int the middle. Sweet wheat caramel and alcohol aroma. The flavor is rather one-dimensional, caramel sweetness. Some alcohol towards the end. Where is the complexity that is the hallmark of this style? Body is medium with an alcohol bite at the end. Not so good.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5045) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2011 An excellent weizenbock that seems to fall off of my radar too much. +++ Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy dark brown-red color with a huge fluffy brown head. The aroma was sour malt and sweet fruit. The flavor was sour malt, a hint of fruit and a mild wheaty undertone. The sour malt and a hint of spice linger on the aftertaste. This really is a nice beer and already my top weizenbock. Pretty much everything I could ask for in this style.

jmm1 (129) - Andorra la Vella, ANDORRA - SEP 6, 2004
Dark brown and cloudy body with a thick foamy and lasting beige head. Malty nose, with smoked tones not especially strong. Tastes like burned caramel with some spicy bitterness at the end. Excessive carbonation. The beer is unbalanced between the subtility of the taste and the fizzyness of the body which waters it down finally. Could have been better !

15 July 2004 - Sweet caramel malt aroma. Cloudy dark brown with an white cream head. Sweet hop malt flavour. some bitterness, fizzy, with a nice mouthfeel.
