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.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2006 This beer pour a very dark brown, had a minimal head,and a very caramel smell. there was a heaviness to the beer much like the belgian strong ales (though not as much sweetness) and had a very strong alcohol flavor which I tend to dislike. but all in all this was a very good wiezen bock.

very alcoholic-tasting weizzenbock. all kinds of dark fruit and yeast in the nose. taste: full flavoured, but a bit too much alcohol(sweetness) in it. finishes with lots of banana, sourrish and just a bit bitter, very nice. looks great too!

(Bottle 50 cl) Cloudy, deep dark and opaque. Extremely full-bodied and potent with some sweetness underneath. Notes of oak, port, dates - you name it, all good stuff. Bears some resemblance to strong, Belgian ales - even the abbey styles. An excellent beer. 081000

Some kind of brown, tranquil and deep with a murky glow, almost black really. Medium sized compact foam of dark ivory sits comfortably snug on the top. Slips down slowly to keep a steady thick skimming of creamy tanned foam. Lacing is fast dripping and unsticking. Mild dark aroma of cocoa dusted figs and pale raisin. Has a light molasses and wheat tang to it. Taste is mild and darkly set within a small venue of wheat fixed tang and sweetness. Starts bold and quick with that part mixed with understated tender molasses then tappers off into light flavors of fig fruits, dark cherry, a bit of raisin, and some dryish husk and bread tones keeping at the center. Light tannin touches emerge around the edges with a very light chalky dryness parched with some of the fruits and their skins as it finishes. Fades off well. Everything about it is pretty nice with a good balance, subtleness, and texture but lacks some length and complexity. Feel is good with a soild medium body and texture of wheat malt. The sweetness is quite subdued and delicately balanced with a soft yielding dryness. Easy to drink and swift to the palate. A tad underwhelming for the style, but plenty good and satisfying enough to recommend a try.

Big head upon pouring which soon dissapeared.For its strength it was quite a delicate dryish taste. It left no lacing whatsover. Quite pleasant although I am not a great fan of this style.

(Bottled) Very dark brown color with a small, lemonadey head. Slightly sour, burned-malty and alcoholic aroma. Roasted-malty, caramely and slightly alcoholic flavor. Medium-bodied, slightly watery palate with quit high and a bit hard carbonation. A decently roasted-malty, but quite alcoholic and slightly watery weizenbock.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2009 Rerate 11/6/09: Another old flame that hasn’t stood the test of time. Seems much thinner, sweeter and simpler these days. Downgraded from a 3.9 to 3.3. Original rating: I’m a sucker for sweet, strong ales, and this is right up my street. Sampled at room temperature. Poured a teak colour, with a 1.5cm-thick mat of foam. Good head retention. Fantastic aroma, thick and treacley, with grapes, bubblegum, Christmas spices and a splash of shiraz. At room temperature, this has a full, creamy mouthfeel. Arguably a tad over-carbonated. Lots of sweet Scotch ale-type dark malt up-front, some winter spice, raisins and a late burn from the 7.3% alcohol. Loved this. (500ml bottle, best before 11/05)

Reminiscent of the doppelbocks I been having lately. The head is just fantastic. The wheatyness is only a little bit distracting; otherwise an excellent brew.

Drank at a great little pub called Tolkien’s in Zagreb, from an Erdinger glass. Extremely overrated, like most Erdinger weissbiers. Pours a dark brown, with a medium tan thick head. Unfiltered I guess. Dark malts and raisins in the nose........where’s the taste ? Lemon. I could get only lemon, a bit malt/liquorice maybe, but lemon owns what little taste there is. There’s a faint roasty aftertaste. Refreshing, but this little taste in a weizenbock ?

Wonderfull surprice, a very good beer, mostly lasting creamy head, nice dark brown colour, average to long finish, touch of chokolate, but not sweet as promised. This had ex. date Jan 2005!!!!!
