BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Erdinger Weissbräu
Germany
erdinger.de

Style: German Weizenbock

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.30%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
ERDINGER Pikantus is already a legend during the “strong beer season”. But with its complex symphony of aromas, it also stimulates the taste buds – making it a perfect aperitif.

With an ABV of 7.3% and an original wort of 16.7°P, this bock beer is ERDINGER Weissbräu’s strongest contender.

For a true Bavarian aperitif, divide a bottle of ERDINGER Pikantus between two connoisseur glasses – with its dark color and smooth creamy head, Pikantus is already a feast for the eyes. The flavor that develops on the palate is well-rounded and malty with a hint of nutmeg and fine nougat. The sparkling nature of ERDINGER Pikantus harmonizes perfectly with its slightly sweet character, as well as its soft and delicate finish.

Generous foamy parchment coloured head over a roddy brown slightly cloudy body. Aromas of toffe, dark bread, faint banana. Better than the regular Dunkelweiss

Carmel taste that is smooth, has a body to it. Sneaks up on you, at the end.

Taste rating in words: A warm jackets on a cool breezy night.

Poured from a half-liter bottle into a weizen glass. Woody reddish-brown color, with a voluminous eggshell-colored head that left a bit of nice lacing. Aromas and flavors of dark bread, caramel, dried fruit, with a slight floral undertone. Lots of sweetness on the palate. Medium bodied, with some lingering fruity sweetness on the finish. There is some alcohol warmth that becomes a bit more prominent as the beer warms. I paired this with a bison burger and it was heaven. Delicious and very drinkable on its own.

Pretty tasty weizenbock. Sort of one dimensional with the sweetness. It could use some more banana notes. I would suggest that they add some more wheat to it. I am not too crazy about it the Pikantus but it is decent. If you like dark & malty wheat beers then you should try this one out. Cheers! B-

Pours opaque, dark brown in color with 1/4 inch head. Taste is dark wheat, clove, raisin, and chocolate. Medium bodied and carbonation, sweet. Several other weizenbocks I prefer. Above average but will not get again. Too sweet.

Lovely, rich, cloudy mahogany body. Khaki 2 finger head with lots of fizz and big bubbles vanishes rather quickly leaving a faint ring around the glass.
The aroma is malty and sweet with caramel, some banana and clove and a bit of medicinal hops.
The taste follows the nose with a bit more sweetness. Finishes spicy with some pepper.
The mouth feel is a bit heavy and clumsy but it does have good carbonation which adds to the finish.

O:
Due to Erdinger's neutral House yeast, this is much more similar to a Doppelbock than a Weizenbock.
A damn good Beer though.

From the bottle, it pours a darker brown with a huge, weissbier-appropriate, tan head. Nose is a bit of banana, clove and caramel. The gets the same - yum!
