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.

SimonLarsen (210) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 11, 2004
First beer I can think of that has a definite toffee aroma over the top of anything else. Dark brown with a quick forming quick dying white head, no lacing. Lots of malt, lots of brown sugar, quite a bit of alcohol. Palate has that grain feel otherwise quite smooth. I have a touch of a soft spot for almost anything dark and smooth so I will almost certainly buy this again for one off drinking (but then Aventinus isn't readily available...)

Alotta sweet here. Commercial description says no but I definatly got alotta sweet. As a matter of fact I didn't get any of the weizen and all the bock. Dark brown color with very little head. Sweet maly and caramel aroma with a taste to match. Lingers too long on the tongue.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - FEB 25, 2004
Hazy dark brown body and a giant frothy head. There was som much foam that it couldnt come out of the bottle. Aroma is sweetness, grassy bite. Flavor is malt, molasses and some grassy notes. Nice warm feel, you can feel it in your cheeks. Surely a fine winter treat.

JorisPPattyn (7889) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 18, 2004
Fully opaque dark-brown; fixed cream-coloured dense head. Nose with fresh bread, grassy, like freshly mown lawn. Molasses; bready taste, touch of wheat, dark sugar, even some Maillard. Woody palate. Apart from the alcohol, quite a bit of sugar(s) to! My lips are sticking together. great, filling German beer. But in its style, I still prefer the Aventinus.

Christian (11058) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2004
Muddy dark brown body and big bubbly off-white head. Weak aroma of caramel with some metallic notes. Flavour is interesting, brown sugar, pepper, malt and a hint of alcohol. Doesn't last long though.

Two words, dessert beer. while not a sweet as other bock, this is not something you can just pour back. ie. an 8 oz glass is enough.

midejo (19) - amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2004
(draught, the wildeman) A frothy very dark, murky body (dark brown)smell/taste brown sugar, molasses, hoppy. 1st sweet later a bit acid. a chalky finish. Very promising at the 1st nip, later a bit disappointing!

skortila (4484) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2003
Very weak aroma. It's hard to say what's in it. Malts certainly, bit sweet. Cloudy, brown coloured, off-white head. Nice, doesn't really last however. Taste is okay. Sweet and roasted malty; banana's. Bit yeasty and spicy. Fresh palate. Decent brew.

bluevegie (3053) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 23, 2003
Dark brown colour with a generous light brown coloured lasting head. Aroma of malt, slight banana and caramel.Taste of pepper and ice coffee and malt.This is easier to drink than the Aventinus as the alcohol is not as noticeable but it is not as complex.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2004 Dark black/brown. Nice, slightly foamy, dimishing off-white head. Caramalty aroma. The first zip reveals the stronger doppelbock character. In contrast to Aventinus, which hides the double malt behind a wheat character. Malty sweetness combined with a yeasty, wheaty taste. Spicy. A great beer, not as good as Aventinus, but certainly better than the average rating suggests. Re-rate: After drinking this for a couple of times more, I found that it is simply lacking in complexity for a Weizenbock. RE-rerate: After finishing my case (20 bottles) I think it´s even less great than before.
