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.

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.

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 !

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2004
Aroma of sweet cherry dragged through molasses. Definitely sweet, but also quite earthy and even minerally. Caramel and bark, loads of bock-y sugars. Great feel in the mouth - veers close to too sticky, but thankfully doesn’t quite get there. Such an interesting beer style...

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2004
Bottled. Dark foggy brown served in its correct glass with a large frothy, speckled brown head. Sweet, malty aroma. Flavour was sweet and the palate dense.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2004
A very dark brown coloured beer with a nice white long lasting head. There is little aroma except an underlying musty roastiness. The taste is roasty, toasty and smoky and is enjoyable. Not a patch on Avenitus though.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - AUG 10, 2004
Pours a very dark red/brown with a tall tan head. Very sweet malty aroma with caramel and toffee. Taste starts very sweet with a nice malty smoothness, lots of caramel taste in the malt with a nice spice near the end. Cheap brew for 7.3 percent.

Hazy brown color, malty caramel aroma and taste, medium body, spicy bitter finish.
