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.

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.

Evster64 (107) - Kempner, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2004
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.

shrubber85 (9021) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 30, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2006 Bottle. Nice malty banana/bubble gum aroma. Dark, dark opaque brown with small head. Has both weizen and bock flavors - light banana with typical estery bock flavor. Has a nice bock taste with typical Weizen characteristics.

mdi (573) - Nebraska, USA - DEC 24, 2004
500ml bottle BB OG-2005. Pours like chocolate milk. Big, thick, creamy head. Hearty lace. Malt, cloves, bananas in the nose, but not very highlyu aromatic. Some slight chocolate in the flavor, dark fruits, wheaty/sharp/crisp finish is what I DON’T like about, contrary to the what the Commercial Description here tries to convince me of, I don’t like that finish. It makes me think of cardboard, but I don’t think its oxidized...its just the yeast. Good body, OK, just not my style. it’s probably a pretty decent Weizenbock, I’m just not into German Wheat beers.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - DEC 23, 2004
12.22.04 .5l bottle completely poured into Aventinus glass, the brew is a muddy root beer brown with a thick, brainy head of glistening, soapy bubbles. Noble hop aromas; wheaties with fresh banana. Lots of banana flavor and honey and nuts. Light body retains nice sparkly eff throughout. This beer is no Aventinus, but it fills the bill and doesn’t disappoint. A brew new to the locals.

thehipone (197) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 16, 2004
Pours to a deep brown color in the glass with a lasting off-white head. Has a very faint sweet aroma that belies a rich malty blend of chocolate/caramel and dark fruit flavors. The alcohol is perceptible, but doesn’t overpower the finish. A bit of wheat tartness complements the light bitter finish very well. A good, if slightly understated, bock.

meathookjones (245) - Sterling, Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2004
This poured out a brown with a reddish highlights and a tall growing beige foam head. The head recedes fairly quickly to a cap of bubbles and doesn’t leave any lace stuck to the glass only a trail of head after each sip. Fruity sweet malt is the strongest smell in the aroma. Fruity malts hit the palette first with a nice sweetness that is not over done. Caramel flavors are also quite apparent, as is a dry spicy finish. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with good carbonation. I could definitely put a few of these away they are tasty with a fairly complex taste and its not too heavy on you. This is a pretty good example of the style that I would gladly have again.

YK23 (465) - Haifa, ISRAEL - DEC 3, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2006 Quite amazing beer, i’m not a big fan of wheat beers in general but this one is something else... It’s very full flavored, very rich, full bodied, yeasty, bitter-sweet, loads of dried dark fruits in the flavor, some faint roasty-choclatey notes. Can’t wait to drink this again.
