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.

yespr (29684) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2007
50 cL bottle. Pours hazy and dark brown with a dense off-white head. Mild malty aroma. Flavour starts mild sweet to medium dry, not much of the classic wheat notes here apart from the classic wheat mellow texture. Finish holds a soft malt flavour, some alcohol presence and a mild bitterness.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2002
A brown to deep red unclear beer with a fantastic head. It has a nice fruity aroma and the flavor of hoppy bitterness combined with a pikant spicyness

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Cloudy, deep dark and opaque. Extremely full-bodied and potent with some sweetness underneath. Notes of oak, port, dates - you name it, all good stuff. Bears some resemblance to strong, Belgian ales - even the abbey styles. An excellent beer. 081000

Bottled. Pours a very darkbrowinish/black colour, sparkling head, which disappears immedeately. Aroma is sweet toffee along with slight alcohol and wheat Flavour is raisins, alcohol and toffee. Some balancing up stuff. Pleasant.

omhper (18951) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 3, 2002
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2004 Beautiful nut brown and hazy. Toffee aroma, rather malty, rather sweet, but it lacks character. A pale shadow to other weizenbock, missing all the complexity, and all the flavours that make the style interesting.

saxo (13455) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2006
Bottle. Man.. This is a great beer. It has many of the qualities and spicyness of a "Belgian brune". And at the same time it is still a weissbeer. Nice big lasting head. Great taste. Best weissbeer i ever had.

Dedollewaitor (13390) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2010
50cl bottle @ Flensburg. Pours dark amber brown with a creamy lasting white head and lacings. Nose & taste is vague banana and wheat - not overpowering , and then it has a pleasant roasted caramel note with alcohol in the background. Smooth and it has a nice balance. Not as sweet as feared. Nice.
