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.

berkshirejohn (4813) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2015
50cl bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. Deep chestnut brown with a billowing tan head that falls back quite quickly; the aroma has burnt sugar and earthy malts; smooth with a rich malty caramel taste, and a trace of grassy bitterness before a dry finish. Very drinkable, with no sign of the alcohol.

wozap (100) - Węgorzewo, POLAND - FEB 22, 2015
Trochę inny weizen, oprócz aromatów typowych są nuty palone, korzenne. Delikatna goryczka, kwaskowatość.

jaszymku (45) - POLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Brunatnobrązowe, niesamowita piana, gęsta, drobne pęcherzyki, długo się utrzymuje. Aromat dosyć weizenowy (głównie banan bez goździka) ale jest jakaś kwaśny drożdżyk w tle. W smaku podobnie, dosyć słodkie, w ogóle nie wyczuwalny alkohol. Niezłe.

ruigo (1373) - PORTUGAL - FEB 19, 2015
Brown colour with a medium off-white head. Medium body and average carbonation. Taste is more on the sweet side with some bitter notes. Caramel, malts, banana and clove in the aroma. Overall, a tasty beer.

lello4ever (102) - ITALY - FEB 13, 2015
E’ una weizenbock, si presenta marrone scuro con vene rosse e con un ampio cappello di schiuma beige di buona persistenza ma poco compatta. Aroma di malto e sentori tipici delle birre di frumento, banana su tutto. Elevato perlage, infatti è piuttosto frizzantina. Al palato si gusta una buona mescolanza dello stile bock e weizen, con prevalenza dolce e fruttata di banana, e l’alcool a riscaldare. Composta, ben fatta, godibile e rinfrescante nonostante il grado alcolico di 7%.

BadAprilia1000 (310) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 6, 2015
Pours a very hazy dark brown color with a good heavy head made of larger bubbles. Aroma is sweet, malt, molasses, plum, fig, brown sugar, dough, yeast, caramel, raisin, bread. Taste is brown sugar, bread, grain, wheat, then fades into sweet and tangy raisin and plum, fig, a thick caramel and dough note. Great beer, plenty of flavor to cover up the typical thick sweetness of the style, very drinkable.

fajry (865) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 26, 2015
Fľaša. Tmavo hnedá farba, pena skoro žiadna, resp. okamžite padla. Vôňa sladká, ovocná, jemne kávová a karamelová. Chuť plná, na začiatku sladká, neskôr jemne karamel a prezreté slivky, pozadie čokoláda a lkohol. Piteľné pivo.
