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.

Berna (16) - Buenos aires, ARGENTINA - SEP 5, 2016
Color marron oscuro turbio. Espuma abundante y amarronada aunque con poca retencion. Aroma predominante a clavo de olor, luego frutal a naranja y algo a banana. Sabor maltoso, trigo, pan, tostado, caramelo, nueces, banana, frutos oscuros. Buen cuerpo, suave para tomar, carbonatación media alta con final seco. Esconde muy bien sus 7,3% de alc.

midovark (548) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - SEP 2, 2016
0.5 l bottle served in a weizen glass. Pours deep brown with thick foamy beige head. Sweet and roasted malts, grains, cereal and fruity notes in aroma and taste. Short sweet finish, medium to heavy body and lively carbonation. Complex, heavy brew, very pleasant.

JaKeAFC (954) - ITALY - AUG 31, 2016
Ceramic mug at Prien an Chiemsee. Sweet malty weizen taste, malty aroma with fruity notes. Taste is sweetish but rather balanced, it has a sharp dry edge, light bitter, supposedly neatly hopped. Full bodied, thick texture, carbonated. A bit difficult at first bug goes down pretty well, not my favorite in the style but solid.

tightslice (950) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 30, 2016
Bottle from Willows Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is molasses, wet dark breads. Taste is bready, malty...not picking up much of the banana. Seemed a little subdued in flavor, will try again.

Bottle. Hazy, dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma: Malt nuts, bread, light banana. Very light clove. Flavour: Medium-light banana, toasted banana bread. Light clove. Medium-dry finish with lingering banana bread. Mouthfeel: Light body. Medium-high carbonation. Overall: Head retention is low for this style of beer. Aroma and flavours are both very light.

badhack (507) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Dark brown. Taste of dark and roasted malt and toasted wheat, sweetness is balanced, a bit of dark fruit and a pretty low hop finish but tasted herbal and spicy. Not a particularly heavy beer, moderate I’d say.
