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.

Pours a dark, cloudy brown color with a big, off-white, lingering head. The aroma is malty and slightly fruity with some yeast and sour notes. Full bodied with medium carbonation, the flavor is malty sweet with touches of banana and a spicy, yeasty finish. The alcohol is well hidden. Very smooth, this is quite a nice weizen bock with just the right amount of carbonation and sweet flavors.

Pours deep brown with off-white head that doesn't stick around for very long. Smells floral and spicy. Nice spices in the flavor that lead into some citrus and grass; and then malt, caramel and chocolate. Somewhat sour, malty finish.

Nice dark color with chocolate aroma, what a treat. Taste like ripe bananas and I love chocolate covered bananas.

beerguy101 (5277) - Newark, California, USA - FEB 25, 2003
Dark brown color. Large foamy head. Aroma is roasted malts and chocolate. This is the darkest, most opaque Weizen Bocks I’ve seen. Full bodied. Malty, slightly nutty. Chocolate and caramel malts. Seems a little less complex than most Weizen bocks. Not very spicy. Very smooth flavor. Alcohol bite is fairly noticeable. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet, with a noticeable alcohol finish. Not their best effort.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 24, 2003
Brown with a hint of garnet color with a tall dense tan head. Malt and caramel nose. Malt flavors with decent hidden alcohol. Nothing complex, sweet malt and light hops.

chunkous murky brown. it seems that even a bad weizenbock isn't that bad. quite dry and low in flavour except for vague grain

If you can get past the murky appearance it's not a bad beer.

Nice, thick head.... really... Almost too sweet for my taste.

3fourths (7858) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 16, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2007 [rerate needed] Nice malty aroma. First taste is hoppy and malty, very full. As you swallow a gulp, however, Pikantus begins to taste like an iced tea in which you’ve added entirely too much sweetener. I can’t shake the "sugar water" taste.

beerstop (173) - Roanoke, Virginia, USA - JAN 16, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2003 Night malty aroma. Dark brown pour. Malty, sweet, fruity, slight yeast and clove flavors. Nicely carbonated with medium feel on the palate. Very drinkable, almost as good as Aventinus.
