COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian Ales represent the height of the brewersí 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.

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 itís 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 (969) - 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, itís 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.

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

As soon as I had one of these that I bought on the way home after work, I was thinking it was worth a good rating. I read other ratings and wasnít surprised that this one has fairly unanimously favorable opinions. I noticed in the ratings those typical words associated with this type of ale, such as banana, spice, etc, and I agreed with them. I sum it up by saying that its rich without being overwhelming. Its balanced but not boring. You can drink it fast or slow, and enjoy it either way. I like to take a few big guzzles, then settle down and sip it slowly, and savoring it. This one really delivers the flavor and the punch. It kicks a little with the above average alcohol level without being too imposing. Itís a very well made ale. I had it a few months ago and it didnít taste quite this good. Itís very smooth, and slightly sweet, yet I can taste some zingy hops in it. This is the type of ale that comes as close or maybe closer to my idea of the perfect ale as any other ale does.

Ungstrup (32965) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2004
A hazy orange beer with no head. The aroma is sweet with notes of peach and spices. The flavor is sweet with notes of peach and alcohol, that prickles the tongue.

Sammy (10572) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2004
Aggressive yeast, in terms of aroma and taste for a Belgium, but otherwise true to its style. Coriander, vanilla, nutmeg. Quite quafable. Sweet-spicy. Medium-full mouthfeel.
