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.

Dark brown with a tall frothy head. Sweet malty aroma with caramel and a little raisin touch. Taste is medium sweetness with some banana and some chocolaty malt. Palate is a little thin and fizzy.

Ritzn (72) - 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 (79) - 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 (111) - 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.

NORSAND (62) - - APR 1, 2016
Coffe brown colour with lasting, beige head. Nose: Malt, dark caramel, butter caramel and some yeast. Taste: Quite creamy with rich carbonation. Malt and coffee. Despite a slight touch of sweetness it’s quite dry. Is it lacking a bit in personality or am I just unfairly comparing this industrially produced wheat bock to more expensive and complex craft beers...?

Kommt dunkelbraun aus der Flasche. Mit weißbrauner Blume. Im Geruch zurückhaltend malzig. Im ersten Antrunk zuviel unangenehme Lakritze. Später dann milder Spekulatius.

Teran (254) - Belgrade, SERBIA - MAR 21, 2016
Dark and hazy caramel colour with the enormous and stable light beige top. Full body, creamy strong malt flavor and caramelized almonds. Some dried fruits also, spicy. Sweet, but not to much. Very nice aroma. Slightly phenolic. Medium-high carbonation, powerful and special drink. Well hidden alcohol. Delicious.
