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.

Very strong flavour. Excellent for a cold day. 500cc is a great measure. I will buy it again

This weizenbock is traditionally Deutsch. No discernible hop character but definitely imperial in Bavarian bock malt. Every molecule is imparted with distinct flavors of the Bavarian weizen yeast strains. I have always held these high Gravity weizens sacred. Similar in some ways to Belgian ales due to the characteristic nature of the weizen ale yeast strains, these ale style have flavors reminiscent of each other. However, this bier has a tremendous dark malt character. Ther is nothing in the wild ester flavor department characterized by warm fermentation temperatures. A true German bock weizen brewed with ample Bavarian malts to a rather intoxicating gravity and ethanol content. Heavenly.

A masterpiece! This beer has not been rated highly enough to date! Strongly malty (bready?) aroma with a faint toffee character. Moderately high carbonation and a creamy full body. Sweet caramel Vienna malt lingers and is contrasted with spicy alcohol and persistent hop bitterness. Strongly subdued esters are barely noticeable. Did I just imagine banana? Figgy aftertaste is really pleasant. Do yourself a favor: This beer is the epitome of the style. I dare you to honestly find a better one.

A masterpiece! I must concur with tallmatt67. This beer has not been rated highly enough to date! The Erdinger line is as close as I have found to the beer on tap in Germany.

Bottle 500ml. Really "picante" (spicy hot in Spanish). Aroma of dark fruit, nuts, chocolate, and some alcohol. Taste has sweet and bitter notes; it’s long-lasting with a warmly alcoholic finish. Palate is silky, full-bodied, and it has a spicy mouth feel. Almost black in colour, with a thin and frothy white head.

Great rounded flavor, nice beer to sit around with, the epitome of a great weiss bock, rivals aventinus in my opinion. Definately worth a try.

500ml bottle. An astoundingly good beer. It is like a mixture of weizen, dunkel and stout in style. The initial carbonation is strong, giving it a powerful presence. This fades into a luscious, velvety and rich finish, with strong hints of chocolate and coffee. A remarkably enjoyable drink from start to finish.
