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.

RexTalionis (3306) - - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle 50 cl. Dark brown in color, with a thick creamy tanned head. Sweet fruity, ripe banana, bready malty and some spices in aroma. Later on also some roasted and burnt woody notes appears. Lots of wheat in taste with some hints of banana. As it seems this isn’t that sweet as I expected, which is actually quite nice as it makes it more drinkable and enjoyable at the same time. Some yeast also in aftertaste with the before mentioned wheat and banana fruity flavors. Nice one and also the best that I’ve tasteed of Erdinger so far.

Bottle from Cork & Cask. Hazy brown body with a thin beige head. No lacing. Aroma of wood, Dr Pepper and earth. Flavour of roasted malt, spices, raisins and caramel. Medium body with a frothy texture. Light fizz. Rich and complex. This feels a bit like Luckie Ales beer.

MartR (220) - Aespa, ESTONIA - JAN 16, 2016
Dark brown in appearance with a light brown head. Taste of caramel malts with some fruitiness to it. Feels strong, but the alcohol doesn’t come in at all. Wheat character adds some spiciness. Medium bodied and moderately sweet. Good strong beer that goes down easily.

ANZUShophunter (206) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 27, 2015
From bottle in weizen. Pours with two finger head, yeast on the nose and lively, consistent CO2 release. Looks like a cola and tastes a bit like one too. Rich, sweet malt profile with an initial spicy bite that fades. Delish.
