COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian Ales represent the height of the brewers’ art. Sophisticated brewing techniques, yeast blends and unique flavoring elements have elevated the beers of Belgium to the status enjoyed by wine in other countries.

PranQster follows in this tradition using a mixed culture of antique yeast strains that results in a floral nose, a full fruity flavor and a clean finish.

One of the better Belgian clones out there. Many artisan fruity flavor elements are present such as clove-spice and a bit of citrus. This brew also has traits of a less sophisticated wheat beer, especially in the aroma. Pranqster lacks the champagne-like dynamic carbonation and thick headiness of an authentic Belgian ale. Yet there are enough flavor positives that it’s definitely worth a try.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - JAN 21, 2005
Very well hidden alcohol flavor. Golden color, with an average head, flavor was good, you wouldn’t think this was brewed in Cali, they did well with it!

Braudog (6197) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JAN 14, 2005
Bright orange like Tony the Tiger with thin white toupee. Yeasty orange aroma. Fruity and yeasty flavor, not too different than a funky orange soda.

SpringsLicker (3382) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 4, 2005
Hazy burnished gold color, almost white head of modest size which is quite proper for the style. Excellent lacing. Robust musty, spicy aroma. Full flavor, sweet and fruity, good finish. Surprisingly good Belgian, even more so that it’s brewed on the West Coast. I have passed over this in the store for a long time and someone had to give me one to get me to try it.

Tejas (973) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 29, 2004
lots of aroma. zero head which is disappointing. yeasty is the first thing that comes to mind. flavor is decent at first but then gives away to a strange dry aftertaste. on a positive note the alcohol % is hidden extrememly well. considering this is in the belgian ale category, it’s average

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2004
Golden coloured. Nothing special. Reminds me of an ordinary Belgian Ale. Not much power in it in spite of the decent alcohol percentage.

Light blonde in color. Little to 0 head, bananna taste with a smooth finish.

spkldhenlvr24 (517) - Newburgh/Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 22, 2004
Good Belgian. Orange/golden cloudy appearance with a small, dissappearing white foamy head. Decent yeasty, citrus(orange), spicy aroma. Good flavor of fruity malts. Spice aftertaste on the tongue. Maybe a little too yeasty. Good amount of sediment on the bottom of the bottle and glass. Otherwise an enjoyable Belgian Ale.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 20, 2004
Pours a hazy golden hue, bordering on orange, with a thick full crackling head. Nose is fresh, sea-foamy, perfumey, gracious and elegantly aromatic. Some spie, delicate fruit, orange, citrus, apricot, nectarine...sublime! Same beautiful and vibrant impact on the tongue as the best Belgians. Nice, but too brief, finish and, ultimately, a touch too sugary-sweet

biermonk (265) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 17, 2004
POured a clear golden color with a small white head...Aroma of wheat, vanilla and corriander...Flavor pretty much follows suit...Some light tones of peach maybe...Brewed well to style...just not my favorite
