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.

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.

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.

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!

First beer I can think of that has a definite toffee aroma over the top of anything else. Dark brown with a quick forming quick dying white head, no lacing. Lots of malt, lots of brown sugar, quite a bit of alcohol. Palate has that grain feel otherwise quite smooth. I have a touch of a soft spot for almost anything dark and smooth so I will almost certainly buy this again for one off drinking (but then Aventinus isn't readily available...)

Alotta sweet here. Commercial description says no but I definatly got alotta sweet. As a matter of fact I didn't get any of the weizen and all the bock. Dark brown color with very little head. Sweet maly and caramel aroma with a taste to match. Lingers too long on the tongue.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - FEB 25, 2004
Hazy dark brown body and a giant frothy head. There was som much foam that it couldnt come out of the bottle. Aroma is sweetness, grassy bite. Flavor is malt, molasses and some grassy notes. Nice warm feel, you can feel it in your cheeks. Surely a fine winter treat.

Fully opaque dark-brown; fixed cream-coloured dense head. Nose with fresh bread, grassy, like freshly mown lawn. Molasses; bready taste, touch of wheat, dark sugar, even some Maillard. Woody palate. Apart from the alcohol, quite a bit of sugar(s) to! My lips are sticking together. great, filling German beer. But in its style, I still prefer the Aventinus.

Christian (11722) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2004
Muddy dark brown body and big bubbly off-white head. Weak aroma of caramel with some metallic notes. Flavour is interesting, brown sugar, pepper, malt and a hint of alcohol. Doesn't last long though.

Two words, dessert beer. while not a sweet as other bock, this is not something you can just pour back. ie. an 8 oz glass is enough.

(draught, the wildeman) A frothy very dark, murky body (dark brown)smell/taste brown sugar, molasses, hoppy. 1st sweet later a bit acid. a chalky finish. Very promising at the 1st nip, later a bit disappointing!
