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.

Kevin (2159) - New Mexico, USA - SEP 18, 2004
bottle. golden pour with minimal string of a head around the glass. earthy banana aroma. flavor banana and swet candy, with bitter soice notes that are overall a bit bland. finish is about the same as the initial taste, there is not much change in flavors. leaves an oily mouthfeel however that is not pleasant.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - SEP 17, 2004
Bottle. Hazy deep gold with a quickly fading head. Nose is sour and a little floral. Has some taste of yeast, bread, black pepper, anise, grapefruit, white grape, and wheat. Finishes dry and clean. There is a slight alcohol twinge on the finish that is nice as well.

DocLock (8798) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2004
Pours turbid dark gold. Aroma of malt, intense fruit, hops, candi sugar. Tastes malty, fruity, with candi sugar at mid-palate. Finishes semi-dry and fruity, with well hidden alcohol and a nice complexity.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2004
Poured hazy yellow orange with a thick off white head with big bubbles...smells yeasty, sweet, floral, and a hit of citrus...tasted a little spicy and yeasty at first, then sweet and a touch bitter...crisp finish with a slightly sweet aftertaste...not a waste of money, but I only bought two bottles...

(Bottle) Pours a lightly cloudy golden orange with a average-sized white head. Aroma of musty hay. Flavor of yeast, spices, and dried fruits. This one grew on me as it came to room temperature.

motelpogo (7701) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 18, 2004
certainly one of the better american attempts at a belgian ale. honeyed yeasty aroma, some peach and golden syrup flavour and pleasant yeast bite in the finish if perhaps still a tad too sweet

frankR (145) - Davis, California, USA - AUG 17, 2004
Aroma: Faint banana esters, grain, CO2, slight C2H5OH odor, yeast spice. Apperance: Translusent Golden brass, white filmy head, some specks. Flavor: spicy yeast, CO2, dried fruit, warm alcohol. Palate: slightly chewey, warm watery finish. Not bad, certainly better belgium ales out there to put it lightly.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - AUG 17, 2004
Fine head, muddy orange body. Quite heavy in the aroma, yeast, straw, fruit and spices. Mostly fruity flavor with some sour citrusy. Quite sharp and rather harsh towards the end. Special and interesting.

Grandpa (327) - Verona, New York, USA - AUG 17, 2004
A nice golden color, with a foamy short lasting head. A cloudy beer, typical of its type. A good malty flavor, a tad too sweet for my liking.

Metalhead (641) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2004
This bottle was about 6 mos old served at 50 degrees F. Apricot orangey in color. Carbonated but little head.Aroma was of subtle fruit and hints of flowers, It was crisp and slightly fruity with a moderately fizzy mouthfeel. Not stellar but pretty good. I may add to the review with one near room temp.
