COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Complexité aromatique n’est pas gage de grande bière.Tel est l’enseignement de cette Pikantus dont l’alliance d’aromes fruités (banane et pruneau notamment), épicés (paprika et réglisse notamment), de caramel et même légèrement caféine manque de classe et de grâce. Cette Weizen Bock a tout de même de beaux atouts dans son jeu, avec un bon équilibre, une bonne corpulence et une bonne intensité pour une bière qui a du caractère (malgré sa rondeur et sa douceur). D’un brun opaque (EBC au alentours de 46), la Pikantus possède une effervescence marquée permettant à une mousse beige claire et crémeuse de la surmonter. La complexité aromatique est déjà marquée au nez : pruneau, chocolat, banane, pointe de réglisse et mélasse. Savant mélange qui ne s’assemble cependant pas parfaitement. L’attaque est souple et douce sur la banane, la réglisse, le caramel et légèrement épicée. La deuxième bouche est linéaire avec une arrière bouche davantage tournée sur l’amertume (restant modérée), fruitée et épicée. La troisième bouche se positionne sur le fruit, principalement sur le pruneau avec de petites touches de café. Le final d’un bonne longueur présente alors un alcool chaleureux avec pourtant un titrage modéré à 7,3 % Abv, des notes épicés prégnantes et des aromes fruités tournés en priorité sur le pruneau. L’ensemble est doux avec un sucre relativement présent mais sans être surdosé. En définitive, difficile de s’extasier pour cette Pikantus qui manque de finesse. Histoire de goût peut être.

GoddamnNoise (141) - Pontevedra, SPAIN - MAY 20, 2017
50 cl. bottle @ Home. Aroma: quite intense aromas of malts, toasted malts, caramel, bread crust, nuts, ripe banana, clove, with floral and spicy nuances. Appearance: brown color with very high head thickness. Super creamy foam made of tiny to medium sized bubbles. Beige to light brown foam color. Very dark but it seems hazy. Very high retention. Very low Brussels’ lacing. Taste: medium sweetness, low bitterness, no sourness. Flavors following the aromas, with malts, toasted malts, some caramel, bread crust, biscuit, nuts, toasted cereals, maybe dark dried fruits. Hints of flowers and spices. Alcohol’s high level is not very noticeable and is well hidden under layers of malt sweetness. The balance is toward the sweet side. Palate: medium body, oily texture, low carbonation, very long sweet finish of malt sweetness, caramel, malts, toasted malts, bread crust with spicy and floral overtones. Overall: very pleasant aromas of toasted malts, caramel, bread crust, with floral and spicy overtones. Very good appearance with very high retention. Nice and pleasant flavors hiding the high alcohol level. Very tasty. Good beer.

Bottle. Pours a very cloudy dark brown with small tan head and lively carbonation. Sweet caramel malt aroma. Somewhat sweet with a touch of bitterness to balance. Medium-to-full bodied with lingering sweetness on the palate. Very tasty.

Acaro (174) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 29, 2017
Aroma: Toasted cereals and roasty nuts. Appearance: Black/dark brown color with hazy liquid and light tan head. Taste: Medium sweetness with light bitter notes. Palate: Medium body with oily liquid and fizzy carbonation. Short astringent caramel finish. Overall: Not too sweet but too much carbonation, because of that the alcohol is very well hidden. Easy to drink but slowly.
