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.

Holmen1 (2397) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2014
Stavanger Řllags Erdingertreff pĺ Cardinal: denne ble servert ferdig oppskjenket i flotte stetteglass som aperitif, og det viste seg ĺ vćre en god idé, den er en stemningsskapende řl. Tett, insisterende beige skum. Uklar mřrkebrun farge. Aroma av banan og nybakt brřd pluss karamellsřdme. Noen gode munnfuller av denne og man blir vennlig innstilt mot omgivelsene, inkludert Erdingers salgsrepresentant. Rund og fin med litt sjokolade og syre (třrket aprikos?). Behagelig og lett for sin voltstyrke. Kort ettersmak. Flott balansert men ikke akkurat kompleks.

Alengrin (1330) - BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2014
Typical Weizenbock with beige, thick, compact foam and mahogany brown colour with reddish hue, equally misty. Dark malts in the nose, caramel, faint chocolate, wheat, banana, cloves, sweet paprika, ginger. Soft sweetish taste, caramel, light wheat sourishness, weak roasted, bit coffee-like bitterness in the end with warming alcohol; strong, even a bit harsh carbonation. Combines the full, caramelly sweetness and warming alcohol of a Doppelbock with the wheat sourish freshness of a Weissbier, as expected in this style.

A coffee brown, well carbonated, dark weizenbock. Yest sediment. Too Old taste, not much aroma. Don't like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A beer with not much aroma. First impression was of too much alcohol. But after a few sips alcohol disappear from mouth. Pleasant taste, but not to drink much, one bottle it's enough to make you feel full. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

superspak (2568) - Michigan, USA - JUL 27, 2014
500 ml bottle into weizen glass, best before 9/2013. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy deep reddish brown color with a 1-2 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, plum, banana, caramel, toast, brown sugar, molasses, brown bread, wheat, clove, light chocolate, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, dark/bready malt, and light earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of big raisin, plum, banana, caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, light chocolate, wheat, clove, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, plum, banana, caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, light chocolate, wheat, clove, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, dark/bready malt, and light earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice weizenbock. All around good complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, dark/bready malt, and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Bottle, 500ml. An opaque brown beer with a creamy head. Aroma is of roasted malt, nuts, alcohol and maybe some caramel. Taste is bitter with medium carbonatation and astringency, It also has a strong finish. Overall a good beer, Rich and robust, yet very drinkable.

adster (262) - HUNGARY - JUL 20, 2014
Fekete teához hasonló színnel fogadja várományosát, óvatos, de annál többet ígérő, kissé télies illattal: mályvacukorral, alkoholban ázó gyümölcsökkel, vásári nyalánkságokkal, jellegzetes fűszeres, befőtt- és paradicsomlé-szerű aromákkal. Íze legalább ennyire vibráló: az édeskés zamatok, az alkohol kissé metsző éle, a malátás testesség, a különféle töltött édességek jelenléte egy erőteljes, leginkább hidegebb éjszakákhoz dukáló ízélményt produkálnak, mely azonban korántsem válik kárára egyetlen nyári estének sem.
