3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Aroma is malty, sweet, caramel, spicey, and slight alcohol. Pours a very dark reddish-brown with a big tan head with okay retention. Virtually no lacing. Flavor is very malty with a very strong caramel taste. Alcohol is covered up rather well. Not much aftertaste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clowded deep brown color with a significant creamy head. Aroma smells like roasted malt with a wheat back, reminds me of pasta for some reason. Flavor is a pleasing maltyness blended with bananna. Palate is crisp, but not harsh enough to intrude over the flavor.

Bottle: Copper colour pours a heavy and foamy head. Sweet, caramel and fruity aroma and taste, slightly bitter. Acohol is very well hidden, overall great balance. Erdingers are some of my favourite beers.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep copper hue with nice creamy off-white head and excellent lace. The aroma hints of fruits, spice, caramel, floral hops, and a earthy yeast ester. The taste is very much a hybrid, some bock character (sweet malts and a touch of alcohol) with the banana, lemon and clove of the hefeweizen. The finish is a bit shorter than I would want but okay. The monuthfeel is strangely soft and a bit chewy. Overall a good brew but middle of the road for the genre. Worthy of a bottle.

I was thoroughly impressed with this beer. Dark with a half-ass creamy head. It had a unique aftertaste. I would consider buying this again if I was feeling saucy enough.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a good weizen bock. I thought it tasted a little funny at first, but the after taste it leaves is wonderful. Nice brown coloring with perfect white head

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer suffer since it will always be compaired to Aventinus. Even the price is the same. . Poured a deep brown with a off-white head. Palate is slightly thin and flavours aren't as complex as Aventinus. Smooth and fruity and a reasonable option if the big A isn't available.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Great rounded flavor, nice beer to sit around with, the epitome of a great weiss bock, rivals aventinus in my opinion. Definately worth a try.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is the ultimate High when it comes to Erdinger. The Pikantus would not let my senses rest. I enjoyed every moment it touched my palate, however it was a little high in alcohol but that I could deal with. Enjoyed!
