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.

Bottle. Aroma is initially quite sweet and chocolatey...this fades into a more vinous pineapple/banana aroma. Reminiscent of the Unibroue yeast aroma’s. A slight smokiness also comes through. Pours a hazy dark amber color with a big light tan head that has lots of small bubbles. Carbonated, sweet sugary flavors to start. Turns malty and slightly roasted. Thin, metallic finish with hints of roasted coffee coming through very very late. The finish of this beer leaves a poor impression. This is quite drinkable, but I wish it had a little more ooomph in the finish.

chriso (7475) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2005
Very deep red colour, with a rapidly dwindling beige head. Powerful fruity malt aroma. Lots of chocolate malt in evidence, but very little obvious wheat character. Sweet malt flavour with chocolate, caramel, molasses and plummy fruit. Slightly medicinal. Again, not much wheat. Rich and heavy body. Quite sweet and syrupy, which detracts from the appeal a little. I see that some luminaries haven’t rated this beer highly, but I must admit I rather liked it. Granted I’m not a connoisseur of the style but it seemed to hits the spot for me. 500ml bottle from beersofeurope.co.uk.

Very nice appearance, with a brown color that has a hint of red to it and a huge foamy head that retains very well. Nice banana-fruity smell. Flavor is big on malts, with some "dark fruitiness" present, and some alcohol flavor is detectable too. Pretty good Weizenbock from Erdinger.

TheBeerGod (5457) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JAN 9, 2005
Bottle purchased at the Bier Garden in Portsmouth, VA on 1-8-05. Dark brown body with splashes of ruby. Medium foamy tan head. Nose is malty with light chocolate notes and fruit. Taste is very malty and fruity with light sugary notes and candy. Light bubblegum notes as well. Body is medium and very carbonated but has some creamy notes. Finishes with light chocolate, more fruit, and bubblegum. Nice beer!

HoppyBunny (88) - Temptation, Michigan, USA - JAN 5, 2005
Deep brown cloudy in color. pours with a huge head that does dissolve after a bit. Aroma is sweet but yet light malt smells. Upon drinking it is full bodied with a bitter aftertaste.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 5, 2005
A nice malty brew with some hints of raisens, plums, wheat, malt and light grass. The alcohol is in there, as you can tell as it warms up. Pretty damn good. Pours with a huge head that bubbeled out to total flatness.

Aroma: bready/sweet Appearance: Dark amber with lasting head. Flavor: Dry, toasted grains and malt throughout. Palate: Again, leaves a toasted grain flavor upon departure. Overall impression: Good but not great. Would drink again, but I won’t go out of my way to look for it.
