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.

Bottle. Beautiful purple/brown body with a frothy beige two finger head. Flavor notes are cherry, chocolate, and malt. Mouthfeel is very full and solid. Finishes sweet. Very nice beer.

JonMoore (1957) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2004
Poured a deep, murky brown with an off white head that looked like it had settled in for the night (it did last throughout the beer). Some lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel with some alcohol. Flavour is strongly malty and caramel. You can hardly tell it’s 7.3%, as the alcohol is barely noticable in the taste. Very smooth with some carbonation, great mouthfeel. Short aftertaste. Very drinkable, easy to have a beer accident, I like this alot.

ToolHead (266) - København, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2004
50 cl bottle. Served in weissbier glass. Murky reddish-brown. Moderate head. Warm, slightly alcoholic aroma with a darkly spicy character. Full, solid, and malty taste. Smooth wheat presence. Soft, deliciously full mouthfeel.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - JUL 9, 2004
(on bottle)What can you say when a beer just lives up to the decription and nothing more. A very nice nose with dades, chocolate and later in the poor, some tamarind. Extremly "brown" and totally non-transperant. The alcohol can be tasted ALOT and ruins the end, but before that you get a nice full weat and a lash of the alcohol.

AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUN 29, 2004
Bottle. Normally I can dig a good weizen bock, but something about this one is a little bit off for me. It’s almost a bit sour toward the finish, which kills the flavor. Dark brown, big head, decent bockish aroma. Doesn’t taste like 7.3% ABV.

dreamboat (186) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 28, 2004
Very dark brown, almost black with a tight brown head. hint of plum/raisin with some maltiness, and an elusive dry almost minty smell. Full body but still drying, tart and a little fruity also.

Padron4KM (611) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2004
Pours a murky brown with a solid beige/light brown head. no lacing. aoma is malt, cooked bannana and not much else. Metalic quality in the flavor. There was a little clove, bannana, caramel, but I couldn’t get past the tinfoil-on-the-fillings taste... weird. The freshness date on the bottle was 01/05 so I don’t think it was old.. I will try again another time and re-rate

While I don’y always enjoy such a hefty, malty flavor - I was really ready for this and thus it was enjoyed thouroughly. My son even asked for a second sip (which is rare as I usually am drinking excessively hopped beers). Much more tame in the flavour spectrum than Aventinus. Not exactly lighter, though suppose in ABV it is slightly. I catch much more of the bock than the weiss flavors, but if I can get another for the price I paid for this it’ll get many more chances to cement the opinion.
