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 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.

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.

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.

Kinz (3661) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2004
Murky dark brown, luscious head. Slightly sour bready aroma. Not too sweet, to my pleasant surprise, as this is a quality that in general turns me away from trying this style. Slight sour flavor that fades as it warms. In the end, there is in fact a light milk chocolate flavor. Better than I was expecting.

bottle. deep chocolate brown which poured a very nice head. nicely balanced malty flavor with nodes of bread and yeast. not as carbonated as Aventinus, which suits me just fine. One of my favorite Weizenbocks.

Dark brown beer with a giant head and malty aroma. Good flavor and leaves a clean palate.

krisbierjaeger (844) - dolores, Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2004
not a huge W-bock, but tasty. looks like a vienna roast coffee with a bit of pale ochre-yellow dijon mustard stirred in. i spied a bit of yeast chunk in the bottle that i was looking forward to chewing on, but like a mirage it dissolved as i got closer to the bottom. the head fluffed like a coifed poodle, but for just a minute. i looked away for a second to take a few notes, looked back, and it was gone. kinda suspicious, really. i almost suspected foul play. strong bready malt aroma, coffee and plum spread on a schwarzwald rye loaf; plus pencil shavings, whipped cream with a squeeze of orange juice, american cigarette tobacco. flavor is sweet, with jazzy carbonation. alas, it’s a bit thin; the alcohol has a nice cameo, but the feel remains watery. with it’s cream soda sweetness, it’s mild tinture of rootbeer earthiness, it’s minimal bitterness-- it would go well with a festive meal, but enjoyed alone, it comes across as pleasant, but rather sedate company.

Pours dark brown in color with a big beige head. Aroma is malty and a little bready. Flavor is rich and spicy with a soft wheat character in the the background. Alcohol is slightly noticable.
