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.

500 mL. Pours a dark cola color with a thick brown head and lots of lacing. Dessert like on the nose, chocolate cream and coffee, yeast, cherry and banana. Fairly sweet; no hops here but a souring finish. Smooth with medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

An excellent Dunkler Weizenbock, the sweeter malt flavors are nicely tempered by a ripe banana character from the yeast, a bit of spices, and a surprisingly light body. Very underrated beer.
