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 (3485) - - 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.

badhack (499) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Dark brown. Taste of dark and roasted malt and toasted wheat, sweetness is balanced, a bit of dark fruit and a pretty low hop finish but tasted herbal and spicy. Not a particularly heavy beer, moderate I’d say.

AtronSeige (1221) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - AUG 18, 2016
Aroma: Light banana, toasted banana bread. Very light clove. Appearance: Hazy, brown body. Medium, light-brown head, fair retention. Flavour: Medium-light banana, toasted banana bread. Light clove. Medium-dry finish with lingering banana bread. Mouthfeel: Light body. Medium-high carbonation. Overall: Head retention is low for this style of beer, and it is missing the smoothness associated with the style. Aroma and flavours are both very light. 500 ml bottle, roused, poured. 10B. Dunkles Weissbier

SarkyNorthener (3966) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2016
Bottle from bier huis, Ossett. Dark brown beer with medium head. Aroma of dark toffee and malts. Taste is dark malts, some spice, treacle and some roasted malts. A little sticky on the palate. The carbonation is amazing, small prickly bubbles on the tongue. Superb mouthful. Very good.

Dark brown, stable head. Dry toast, dried fig, wood. Taste is more expressive, foamy mouth feel, nice bitterness underlying the toast and a little bit of heat. (50cl bottle from from Saveur Bière)

albmoro (108) - BRAZIL - JUL 20, 2016
Bem aromática e com sabor encorpado característico do estilo Bock. O problema das Erdinger é o excesso de carbonatação. Já é o 2º estilo que tomo dessa marca e aparentemente essa característica está presente em todas, infelizmente.
