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.

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 (4436) - 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 (3052) - 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.

Yes, thedm, this beer went very, very well with our steak supper. Good choice! This was a very drinkable and enjoyable beer that was much to my liking. It poured a large sized frothy tan head with fine-small sized bubbles that was mostly diminishing. The body was opaque and carbonated with a dark brown hue. The nose was malty and sweet with a caramel and brown flavor that lasted from start to finish. It had a very, very smooth mouthfeel and it was light bodied. There was very sparse lacing with this beer.

thedm (4927) - Fort Wayne, USA - OCT 13, 2003
This brew poured a very large envigorated head of light brown colored mostly diminishing foamy finely sized bubbles that left behind a fair lacing and a hazy dark brown colored carbonated body. The aroma was mild with a sweet caramel malt overtone and the mouthfeel was very smooth from start to its mildly tart finish. The flavor had a slight well hidden alcohol content to it with some "Brown" flavor along with its dark malt taste. This was a very good beer that went very will withour steak dinner.

MaBeer1972 (1269) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 5, 2003
Very dark cloudy brown color with some sediment in suspension. The texture is quite heavy. Flavor is very "Earthy", but doesn't quite do it for me.

RichardGretton (4229) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2003
Dark thick and chimney black beer, with a sweet wheat beer aroma, and a nice mild dunkel flavour. A very good dunkel, it is so much better when it is served in the right glass.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 23, 2003
Pretty disappointing really. Not much aroma, just a touch of alcohol and toasty malt, but lacking any of the characteristic clove/banana/phenolic smells. Appearance was very good, very flocculent yeast (very clear in glass), with massive head. Flavour also uninspiring. Thin, bubbly, alcoholic and slightly sweet. It was quite drinkable, but very boring.
