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.

Pailhead (5675) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - MAY 25, 2004
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.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - MAY 13, 2004
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.

Lunkie (1565) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2004
Malty aroma with dark brown clear colour with no lacing. Short heavy malt flavour with fizzy flat palate.

ghawener (1522) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - MAY 5, 2004
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.

BBB63 (6449) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 28, 2004
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.

OD40oz (774) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - APR 14, 2004
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.

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

winkle (477) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 11, 2004
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!
