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.

500 mL bottle: dark plum, alcohol/toffish aroma. Thin palate, but a decent malt bill. I was expecting far more complexity, but the slight roasted flavours and strong alcohol were at least interesting.

SpringsLicker (3156) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 18, 2004
A decent, frothy, Mocha colored head forms over this murky brown beer when it is poured. The aroma is malty caramel with some chocolate. Sweet malt flavor with a bit of alcohol. Nice spicy wheat bite in the finish.

JonMoore (1875) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2004
Poured a deep, murky brown with an off white head that looked like it had settled in for the night (it did last throughout the beer). Some lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel with some alcohol. Flavour is strongly malty and caramel. You can hardly tell it’s 7.3%, as the alcohol is barely noticable in the taste. Very smooth with some carbonation, great mouthfeel. Short aftertaste. Very drinkable, easy to have a beer accident, I like this alot.

Cloudy brownish red with great head and lacing. Some roast in the nose. Smooth chocolate and slightly spicy character. Creamy finish.

ToolHead (266) - København, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2004
50 cl bottle. Served in weissbier glass. Murky reddish-brown. Moderate head. Warm, slightly alcoholic aroma with a darkly spicy character. Full, solid, and malty taste. Smooth wheat presence. Soft, deliciously full mouthfeel.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - JUL 9, 2004
(on bottle)What can you say when a beer just lives up to the decription and nothing more. A very nice nose with dades, chocolate and later in the poor, some tamarind. Extremly "brown" and totally non-transperant. The alcohol can be tasted ALOT and ruins the end, but before that you get a nice full weat and a lash of the alcohol.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUN 29, 2004
Bottle. Normally I can dig a good weizen bock, but something about this one is a little bit off for me. It’s almost a bit sour toward the finish, which kills the flavor. Dark brown, big head, decent bockish aroma. Doesn’t taste like 7.3% ABV.
