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.

Big disappointment for me. Tastes more like a schwarzbier than a weissebock. Coming from Erdinger this was a big let down, for me.

Roasted malt nose, yeast, raisins. Dark brown color, low fizzy beige head. Full malt body with caramel and chocolate, some yeast, syrup and nuts too. Later toffee and then a hint of coffee bitterness. Chewy, fat body. Big beer and great balance. Well done.

500ml bottle from Pitfield Beer shop. Black beer, thin beige head. Nice dark wheat beer with good malts, choc and liquorice. More liquorice in mouth with a mild oily feel. Molasses on end. Bit over carbonated. Choc nose is quite intense.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2005
Erdinger has a weizenbock. Who knew. I quite enjoyed this. Huge brown head on top of a brown-nearly-ruby body. Big aroma, wheat, dough, banana, nut, clove, yeast, cola, nuts. Drinks a little milder than Aventinus, not quite so sweet, a little drier and spicier, with a mild, softly carbonated, lingering sweet finish. No trace of sourness.

yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - OCT 15, 2005
500ml bottle, best before end date 06-2005. Dark mahogany beer with a big tan head that soon dissipates. Aroma of sweet dark fruits and dark malts. Flavor is less sweet than the aroma. Starts out mildly sweet, and dries out at the finish of each sip. Spicy and complex with a full range of dark fruits and malts, and just a hint of tartness. Alcohol is noticeable but well covered by the flavors, and not boozy or distracting. Thick, full body. This is no Aventinus, but nonetheless an excellent weizen bock. $3.29 at Broudys, Orange Park FL.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2005
50 cl bottle. Yeast in bottom. Brown colour with a great white head. Complex aroma of yeast, roasted barley, sweetness and wheat. Great complex taste, that ends up with a warm feeling. A great wiezen bock.

haukur (1531) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - SEP 23, 2005
interesting complex aroma, walnuts, malt, wheat and a little bit of yeast. Very much like an ale. There is quite much lacking, flat palate and a wierd finish. Interesting to sample, but nothing I would buy again
