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.

A bit of a dark fruit aroma, dark malt. Sour note in the aroma. Looks dark and very cloudy like a dark whet beer. Head thin and dissaptes quickly. Not a pretty looking beer. Taste is similar to a belgian dark upfront, getting some date/plum notes. Leads to a clean short finish with a bit of alcohol. Medium bodied, average carbonation.

Cerveja de cor castanho e turva com boa estabilidade da espuma. Salgado e amargor bem leves e textura muito adstringente. No retrogosto fica marcante o aquecimento por conta da presença marcante do alcool.

Ich finde, dass Bier schmeckt angenehm würzig, mild und cremig. Die Schaumkrone hält nicht lang. Schmeckt sehr gut. Sollte gut gekühlt getrunken werden.

patricks110 (2016) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 19, 2015
Beautiful dark, muddy burgundy pour with a thick, beige head. Effervescent carbonation. Nose is grainy, toffee, nutty, light citrus, herbal notes. A bit grainy and biscuity. Sweet, malty, toffee notes. A light herbal floral hop. a bit metallic. Spruce and piney a bit too. A bit of an oddball. Sweet and easy to sip on despite the boozy finish.

huineman (395) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 16, 2015
Pours dark brown with amber shades. Head disappears in the blink of an eye. Aroma is ripe banana, molasses, liqueur, honey, breakfast cereal. Fizzy, full-bodied, sweetish. Long and refreshing. Very nice.

mikeyo1 (394) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUN 10, 2015
Bottle @ home. pours a copper colored slightly cloudy liquid with a large and lasting tan head. Sweet, malty and grainy aroma with ripe banana, wheat, some dark fruits, some clove. Smooth texture with a big sweet mouth feel. Flavor of clove, malt, wheat, dark fruits, syrup, herbs. Lingering sweet ripe banana and caramel. Balancing dry bitterness.

thirstyrabbit (1410) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 5, 2015
Bottle. Hazy dark brown body, medium head. Aroma has yeast, caramelly wheat malt and some sweet caramel. Caramelly and wheaty taste with some banana and dried fruit. Pretty nice, as is their Dunkelweizen. Alcohol is fully integrated. Great beer, although I don’t really understant what exactly is supposed to be piquant about this and why is "retaining" this considered to be a remarkable feat by the person who wrote the commercial description.

500ml bottle. Murky dark brown color. Huge size, thick dark beige head, stays. Looks nice. Caramel, sweetish, wheat, faint chocolate notes in aroma. Caramel, bready, sweet, faint plums, chocolate in taste. Soft carbonation. Caramelly bread in aftertaste. Distant hops in palate. Pleasant sliky smooth mouthfeel. Well done brew!
