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.

Nice dark chocolate color. Huge head on the pour but disapears fairly soon. A bit thinner than expected. Good flavors in there though. Not too sweet and not too much alcohol taste.

This beer was unexpected, and in the case, that was a good thing. The blend of wheat and bock turned out just right, not too sweet. Very impressed with the alcohol content too.

This beer was a pleasant surprise, I was expecting something more wheaty, but got this perfect blend of wheat and bock. This bowl was like a smooth bowl of sweet cream of wheat....great flavor, smooth finish.

Watch out when opening one of these! I barely had the crown off and the beer came pouring out of the bottle! Needless to say, it keeps a great head. This is a very complex beer, however, you can distinctly make out the hops and barleys. This is definately one of those beers that wants to be enjoyed over a period of time (it tends to fill you up very fast). I would suggest this beer to anyone who is looking for something different. It has a great taste, and would be a great desert beer. Another must in my book, you can bet I’ll keep a bottle of this ready for when I get a craving for a heavy, rich malt beverage! ;-)

Big head in the pour that last well. Slightly sweet, kicks a bit bigger kick from the alcohol then expected, but the flavor is milder then expected. Good, but a bit on the thin side, the flavors are not stong at all. Would work well with a nice selection of hor deurves for starters.

Gigundus head. dark, dark brown - like rootbeer. thick and malty, but not overly sweet, warming alcohol; a quietly lingering sweetness finishes it off. a few big bottle conditioned chunks floating about.

Dark brown with fluffy head, sweet wheat flavour. I think having the correct glass make allthe difference to the apperance.

Nice dark body and solid head retention. A bit sweet for my taste, but the rich malt flavoring helps to hide the higher than average alcohol content. A decent Weizenbock.

Sweet liquorice-flavour, dominating alcohol-flavour.

Tizz sweet. Yes! Tizz a bit thin... hmmm just a little. Quite a bit fluff in its aspiration... Yeah Yeah Wank Wank... It fizzy, sweet, has a embossed palette that lingers a little... gentle memories of real Belgian bier. Not a real darkie but I would go another for sure…
