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.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 19, 2010

Source:500 mL bottle from Liquor Barn.
Glass:Pilsener Urquell glass.
Appearance:To describe this beer as muddy looking doesn’t do mud very much justice. This is the ruddiest looking brown color I’ve ever seen...I LIKE IT.
Aroma:Dark fruits, cloves and some earthy hops dominate the nose.
Flavor:Flavor is a little mellow. Some dark fruits, caramel and chocolate are all present, but in muted amounts.
Palate:Medium bodied with solid carbonation.
Overall:Very good beer, but it doesn’t quite hang with Aventinus and the likes in depth of flavor, and overall amount of flavor. Still, very well done.

ghostbeer (91) - Nebraska, USA - OCT 18, 2016
I got this in a sampler with 5 different Erdinger products and a glass. Of the 5, this was the best one. It had a bit of sweetness and strength that reminded me of a doppelbock. Being a wheat beer, it certainly had a thick and foamy head and took a bit of patience to pour. I was well rewarded for this patience with a slightly complex and delicious beer.

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.

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 (972) - 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 (1001) - 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.
