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.

500ml bottle. The luxurious version of erdinger dunkel. It is well made but i think the original dunkel is better. Darker color and fewer foam. It tastes just fine but I think the added alcohol ruines it a little. Some of you may like it more, that’s just MY opinion.

One of the best Bock beers I have tried. I bought one bottle on a whim and was immediately pleased after the first taste. Pleasant, inviting aroma and a taste to match. Easy to drink with a clean finish. The 7.3% doesn’t hurt either. Anyone who is a fan of dark brown ales and Belgians will not be disappointed with this one.

veceo (243) - CROATIA - APR 14, 2014
Brown color, average sized tan head. Full body, average to high carbonation. Aroma is very interesting and intense. At first there’s a feeling of a Belgian Dubbel with malts, dark fruits (maybe raspberries) and yeast and underneath that there’s a familiar wheat and banana aroma. Taste is pleasantly sweet. Very interesting beer.

HammerTroll (205) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 6, 2014
Color is hazy dark brown, with big tan head. Banana and bubble gum nose. Aroma is banana, caramel and raisins. Very creamy, thick texture, flat carbonation. Long sweet finish. Maybe a little bit to sweet, but without a doubt, the best Erdinger so far. (Vrutak 0,5l bottle)

LorenSommelier (6) - Oaxaca, MEXICO - APR 5, 2014 does not count
Cabeza de muy corta duración, color marrón oscuro. Aroma a caramelo, miel, plátano, malta, pan tostado (centeno) y un poco de mineral. Lijera, dulzona y burbujeante en boca. Postgusto medio, un poco astringente. Bonito balance entre amargor y dulzor, pero poco complejo.

jerd16 (132) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2014
Pours rusty brown with large retreating beige head. Aroma is subdued but offers under-ripe banana, raisins and yeast. Similar to a Belgian-quad, the qualities combine to produce marzipan or a stollen slice. Medium body with lively carbonation. Taste is sweet on the bonnet with raisin, dark fruit. Some malt and warming alcohol precede a very light bitter tail. Enjoyable and not too bulky like many bocks or quads can be.
