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

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.

Watch out when opening one of these! I barely had the crown off and the beer came pouring out of the bottle! Needless to say, it keeps a great head. This is a very complex beer, however, you can distinctly make out the hops and barleys. This is definately one of those beers that wants to be enjoyed over a period of time (it tends to fill you up very fast). I would suggest this beer to anyone who is looking for something different. It has a great taste, and would be a great desert beer. Another must in my book, you can bet I’ll keep a bottle of this ready for when I get a craving for a heavy, rich malt beverage! ;-)
