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.

sinte (475) - Udine, ITALY - FEB 28, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2006 Bottle 0.5l. Brown hazy colour with large and lasting off-brown head; sufficient lacing. Complex malt aroma with notes of prune, banana, cloves; alcohol is distinguishable. Flavour is initially sweet with acidic notes, then turns to a moderately bitter finish; peppery alcohol notes are also present in the finish together with toasted coffee notes and a moderate harshness. Medium-round body with an oily texture; lively carbonation. Very good beer.

onystrom (1333) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2006
Muddy brown color with great head. Malty flavor with a bitterness not so common in weizen bock.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 21, 2006
Deep, semi-hazy and dark ruby brown in color with an icy white head branching off to a thick, off-white rung. Beautiful aromatic symphony of brown sugar, spicy toffee, golden raisins, figs, prunes and an encore of banana brand muffins. Some suggestions of tree trunks lacquered with brandy. Flavor ignites with apple butter, cinnamon, nutmeg and brown bread. Sweet dough composure truncated by peppery phenols. Walnut shells and hazelnut sheafs. Distant unrefined cocoa powder and chocolatey toffee chews meld well with tobacco and cola syrup. Poignant carbonation stings early on, but a warming, boldly uplifting presence perseveres. Effervescence is mostly refreshing. Light molasses surfaces in the finish along with honey-drizzled, brown-sugared bran flakes and dried, peppered bananas. Quite an unexpected surprise.

winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - FEB 14, 2006
Sort of disappointed with this one. Doesn’t seem to represent the style well. Watery with an alcohol taste and and an unbalanced bitterness shining through the malt flavors.

Brownish colour with a medium fully lasting light brown head. Powerful aroma and taste. Good palate.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - FEB 9, 2006
Bottled. pours a mahogany color with an ivory head. Malt aroma. Taste is malty with a bit of cinnamon and cookies. Also a bit fruity.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - FEB 9, 2006
Nothing really exceptional here with this, although it is a decent brew. Very bready in the taste and aroma with a clean finish. A bit of molasses and spice on the palate as well but, again, nothing I haven’t had before. Too bad.

yngwie (16227) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2006
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.

can be compared to a nut brown in terms of depth. a yummy beer, this is. very fizzy and full flavored but not overwhelming.
