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.

petermadsen (390) - Vesterbronxxx, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2005
This is a dark brown malty thing with a nice burnt note in the back of the palate. It has a slightly sweet taste that is balanced well by the bitterness. The flavours are heavy without being overpowering, and the alcohol is wellhidden. A good and drinkable companion!

SDalkoholic (2219) - Linda Vista, California, USA - APR 28, 2005
A dark leather brown beer in a dimpled mug while keeping a stubborn foam above it. Aroma has traces of malt,chocolate,caramel and perhaps apple or another fruit of some sort. The same is to be said about the flavor: strong malt backbone with hint of chocolate and caramel and also including a wood like taste. Fruit of pear or red apple and a split reminder or raisin too. By far the best weizen bock i’ve drank to date.

aracauna (3205) - Georgia, USA - APR 19, 2005
The color is that of swamp water with the sediments from the bottom kicked up. The head is large and noisy, but fades quickly and ultimately ends up completely dissipated. This aroma carries overripe bananas and chocolate. The flavor seems to be pretending to be a true weizenbock, but really lacks the complexity and character to compete with most of the others that I’ve had.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2005
This pours a rich, dark brown color with little carbonation and a light brown head that doesn’t last for long. It smells of caramel and brown sugar and raisins and prunes. The flavor is caramel with dark chocolate, and some hot spices. It’s got a sticky but dry, warm finish. The ABV shows itself after being swallowed.

hawkshadow (107) - Rural Retreat, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2005
Aroma is of dark dried fruits, leather and caramel. Pours very dark brown, with foamy carbonated head, mostly diminishing. Carbonation from the bottom. Starts bittersweet caramel, spicy. Finishes alcohol warm, dark bitter, lasting aftertaste. Palate is creamy and carbonated at the same time.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 12, 2005
An aroma of ma just roiling up some bread dough to bake in the oven. Black body with tan head the thinned out to cover top of beer. At first drink the chocolate flavor was apparent. Little sweetness on the palate good beer

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 4, 2005
Draught @ Brouwer’s Cafe pours burnt caramel, large offf-white foamy head, fantastic lacing, with strong carbonation.   Looks wonderful, and very lively.   Light fruity aroma, malty, sweet, a bit of caramel.   Not much wheaty/clove/banana tho.   Unfortunately the flavor on the tongue is rather subdued.   A bit more appleskin and fig/date tho.   Where is the weizen part?   Slightly wheaty/thick mouthfeel, with an somewhat big body.   Finishes slightly bready with the aformentioned fig/date.   Not bad, but not as wheat like or spicy as I prefer.   My vote still goes to Aventinus, but Pikantus is good otherwise.
