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.

Dark brown with a decent brown head, Aroma of cocoa and nuts. Wheaty, malty with almond, spice and dark dried fruit. A very festive, warming, bubbly brew. Perfect for a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.

LazyPyro (913) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2017
0.5L bottle. Pours a cloudy dark brown with creamy beige head. Aroma is malty, dried fruits, caramel, banana, yeast. Taste also very malt forward, sweet, lots of dried fruits, caramel, some yeast, spices, not really much wheat to speak of though, light boozy note under all that. Medium body, fairly high carbonation. Not bad.

Heidelbeer (25) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 30, 2017
Beige big not long lasting almost creamy head. Murky dark brown beer. Smell of sweet malt, dried fruits, ripe banana, alcohol, yeast, cinnamon and chocolate. Its quite complex. Flavor is first malty sweet, ripe banana and something i can not tell. Medium bitter and a average long lasting finish. Carbonation is very present and a tad to much for me. Pikantus is definetly not a bad beer. Its worth a try. Just for my personal preference its a little bit to sweet with a too high carbonation.
