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.

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.

Une weizenbock dunkler de 7,3 % abv, pour 16,7°plato, en format 50 cl. Malts d'orge pale et grillé, et malt de blé. Mon exemplaire était à 7 mois avant sa date. Couleur marron foncé, à l'opacité forte. Mousse beige, crémeuse, stable à 4 mm. Superbe. Arômes de malt grillé, réglisse, caramel, pointe de caféine, prune. 1ère bouche structurée, à la très belle entame malt/levure/fruits juste à point. Arrière-bouche très fine, sur un malt grillé 1ère classe. 2ème belle bouche très équilibrée, délicate. Arrière-bouche longue, très harmonieuse. 3ème à la grande ligne harmonique. Arrière-bouche très équilibrée, longue, fine. La longueur est presque une épure, dépourvue de complexité, mais stylée. Jambes fines, longues. Levure d'une belle ligne. Alcool correct, il ne fait pas vraiment son niveau, mais travaille très efficacement la longueur. Finale pure. CONCLUSION : bière tout à fait contraire à son nom, elle n'est pas du tout "piquante", mais plutôt d'une simplicité biblique, totalement dépourvue de complexité. Comme disent les jeunes, elle "assure", mais dans un sens ici d'une ligne harmonique limpide, strictement exceptionnelle. Le genre de bière qui ne peut recevoir de critique tant elle est "clean". Et je suis certain que l'on peut en boire "jusqu'au bout de la nuit" comme disait une pub pour de l'eau colorée ...

Potente cerveza de trigo. Apariencia bonita, de color muy oscuro parecido al café, con espuma tostada y abundante. Aroma a trigo y cereal tostado principalmente. En principio entra dulce, recuerda al plátano. Carbonatacion bastante alta, con muchas burbujas, en boca también se nota. De fondo se pueden apreciar toques tostados como el del café con un punto alcohólico.

Where Purchased: 500ml bottle from the LCBO part of the Erdinger Winter mixer pack. Consumed: from an Erdinger wheat glass (poured the correct way) Aroma: Smells slightly fruity and sweet with a hint of flowers. Appearance : unfiltered medium to dark brown with thick sticky head that lasts to the end. Very sticky lacing. Some yeast floating around. Taste: very well balanced. Just a bit too sweet and no sign of hops. Palate : medium body. Malty sweet aftertaste. Great carbonation. Overall: Such a well balanced and easy drinking beer. Not as carbonated as Erdinger Blonde or Brown, but still very good. Would never guess it was so high in ABV other then when you get up. This was about perfect. I was glad to try and will definatley buy again. MB. The Beer "Bear"on.

Raistlin (495) - London, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 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. Flavour 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 surprising considering the style. Hides alcohol very well.

YantarCoast (1624) - Moscow, RUSSIA - DEC 2, 2017
500ml bottle from RusBeerShop. Pours dark brown with a large off-white head. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, raisins. Taste is sweet, brown sugar, caramel, bananas. Creamy mouthfeel. It’s decent, but I prefer my Weizenbocks a little lighter in colour.

kraddel (9336) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - NOV 28, 2017
Pours very unclear, darker brown. Small layer of white foam. Smell is a bit spiced, bit darker malts. Mild milkchocolate aromas. Some phenols. very low levels of esthers. Taste is full, creamy, sweet, mild esthers (banana ) , not overruling the whole. Nice body, rather low carbo. Relatively high phenols. Very decent.
