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.

hangunder (305) - Ontario, - JAN 27, 2013
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.

Jolie bière couleur brune café clair. On est sur le caramel mais sans ce côté sirupeux que l’on peut parfois trouver. Pas écœurante. Manque peut être de corps pour être parfaite.

Cerveza estilo weizenbock color obscuro ligera carbonatacion, sabor dulce a maltas, ligero sabor frutal. Conclusión cerveza un poco dulce para una bock aunque no deja de ser agradable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

toscanoigor (40) - - MAY 7, 2016
Cerveja marrom, creme marrom de boa formação e média persistência. Boa carbonatação, corpo médio pra baixo. Aroma pouco marcante de ameixa, malte e notas das leveduras. Na boca, predomina o malte, cravo, com notas de ameixa e passas. Final seco, um pouco doce, pouco amargor. Seria melhor com mais corpo e mais personalidade no sabor.

Graham77 (384) - SCOTLAND - MAY 1, 2016
500ml bottle. Brown colour with a small latte colour head. Aroma is caramel, dried fruit, banana. Taste is very sweet, rich and lightly spiced. Too sweet for my tastes but a fairly complex and decent beer.

Ritzn (133) - Bavaria, GERMANY - APR 23, 2016
Very dark red brown fluid with medium beige head. Aroma is sweet dried figs and raisins and caramel, very complex might have missed some. Taste is a little thin. Not as much sweetness as predicted by the aroma and not so well rounded. Mouthfeel is very much carbonation, aggressive and rather unpleasant. Overall OK, I guess.

AdolfoCC (112) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - APR 18, 2016
Servido en un vaso Weizen. APARIENCIA: de color cobrizo con algunos destellos marrones a contraluz, se observa turbia y algo de actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma color marfil, de burbuja muy compacta, copiosa y de mediana retención. AROMA: complejo; notas de plátano que predominan, además de notas de pan, frutos oscuros, grano tostado y ligeramente se alcanza a percibir el alcohol. SABOR: notas de plátano que predominan, notas de pan, ligeramente especias, frutos oscuros maduros, ligero y discreto dulzor, además de sensación de alcohol igualmente ligera pero presente; el retrogusto queda un amargor ligero, no astringente y no llega a ser seco, pues queda un sensación dulce. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo medio ligero, carbonatación media. RESUMEN: excelente cerveza, más compleja de lo que podrías imaginar.

Demens (127) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 14, 2016
0,5l bottle. Very hazy chocolate brown colour with quickly disappearing tan head. Aroma: Caramel, chocolate, honey, nuts, fruits. Taste: Sweet malty start with a light bitterness. It’s like a light and watery barley wine. Lively carbonation with light/medium body. Very short sweet finish. Best from the brewey.
