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.

[Sampled in 2003.] Boring look but great taste. Didn’t gave these notes in 2003 but a sample on tap raised them to a higher level, despite its challenging flavor it gains within time to a masterpiece for the style!

troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2007
(Bottle) Pours a shade of brown with a toffee colored head. Sweet aroma of wheat, caramel, and spice. Spicy taste, with clove and nutmeg (especially as it warms). Biscuits and sweet dry malty notes as well. High carbonation, and slight alcoholic hints as well. A decent brew.

3.2
tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of caramel malt, toffee and some fading sweet wheat characteristics. Pours dark brown with a quickly disappearing white head. Flavor is a nice balance of wheat and bock: biscuit and toasty malt some caramel with some dough and wheat notes. Medium bodied with a dry hoppy finish.

heavy (2890) - Split, CROATIA - OCT 29, 2007
26/10 0.5 l bottle at Tolkiens House. It pours murky brown body with big fluffy head, going down relatively fast. Quite nice aroma, some wheat, fruity, other spices but also bock character, with caramel and coffee. Flavor was quite strange to me as this is my first Weizenbock, but interesting and surely not bad. Caramel but not sweet, some coffee. Still it happen to be quite watery and too carbonated, which is specially felt in the lack of some special finish. Fine beer although not that good.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 19, 2007
This came as part of a gift pack that included a glass and the oktoberfest. Nice packaging and price. Enough on that. Now to the beer. Pours mahogany and slightly hazy with a nice off white rocky head. Smells of caramel, toffee, dark fruit, hints of earth and spice. Tastes of caramel, sweet malt, some touches of biscuits, lots of dough, some clove. Well rounded and another good one from this brewery.

Cryotek (206) - Pawtucket, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 7, 2007
redish nut brown hazzy color. Slight caramel, and a little grainy. Nothing special, nothing extremely bad. It helps if you’ve had a hefeweizen and a doppel bock, so you can see a mix of styles.

fro2218 (471) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 2, 2007
Brown with large tan head. Caramel in nose. Banana and spice also. Banana and wheat in flavor with sweet caramel notes.

Ty5592 (1018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2007
Bottle. Caramel nose with big fluffy tan head. Yeasty notes throughout. Light banana and wheat mixed with caramel. A basic beer for the syle nothing special.

3.7
gripweed57 (2738) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - SEP 22, 2007
Cloudy reddish brown appearance. A huge, bubbly tan head. Yeasty toasted malt aroma hints at something special. There is a sweet, wheat malt flavor upfront with hints of caramel and spice. Very smooth and flavorful. Not as strong as other German weizenbocks like Aventinus or Hacker - Pschorr. Good, none the less.

3.6
sunevdj (4100) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2007
Pours a hazy brown with a tanned head. Sweet and quite malty with tiny hints of milk chocolate. Medium to high carbonation. Also some nuts. Sweet dry finish.
