Straight from Erding, Germany, Erdinger is now one of the biggest Germany weissbiers on the market. It is exported across the globe and they produce several high quality beers. One of them just happens to be this one you’re reading about right now. Out on its own as one of the best weissbiers around, Erdinger uses only the finest raw ingredients to guarantee its unmistakable taste. It uses a fine yeast and is bottle fermented for three to four weeks after adhering to the Bavarian purity laws.
Erdinger Pikantus has an unusually high ABV at 7.3% and it is a weissebeer doppelbock, making it a strong and dark wheat beer, highly complex and desirable. You can describe the aroma as a symphony with the dark malts seeping honey, caramel and cloves. It has a dark colour and creamy head with hints of nutmeg and fine nougat on the palate with the intense flavours being followed by a soft and delicate finish. This full bodied beverage make it ideal to accompany any meal and if you’re feeling adventurous can even be used as a base for BBQ sauces and marinades. Or just consume on its own as an aperitif for those who like their beer outside of sauces.
