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.

Surprisingly refreshing variant flavors throughout ... a smooth crisp taste, with a brisk blast of belgian amber flavor. Maybe it has been a long day, but I am really enjoying this beer right now!

i am starting to really like this style. golden with some reddish hue. beautiful. some yeast in the aroma. a little harsh as first(pretty cold out of the fridge) but got better and better as it warmed. light fruitness and spicy. well done north coast.

A bit different, yes. Why isn’t this listed under Belgian Strong? Anyway, Orangey color reminiscent of I2PA, with a similar head and sticky lace. I like the smell and look of this and on taste it is quite complex, with sweet fruits as well as citruses coming through. Rather clean finish for a belgian with some hops and big malts right there behind the spice and fruit. A very nice beer.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 [12 oz. bottle] Cloudy orange color with a small white head. Spicy aroma with hints of citrus fruits, coriander and honey. Sweet and peppery taste, almost like bubble gum, that quickly fades to a smooth hoppy finish and leaves a sweet and peppery aftertaste.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - SEP 20, 2004
Pours a slightly hazy orange with a small white head. Very fruity spice aroma with orange and coriander. Taste is very citrusy fruity sweet at first then fades to a nice balance. Good spice in the finish. Overall a delicious belgian brew that is easily drinkable although not as complex as some of the style.

Hab40oz (242) - Grants Pass, Oregon, USA - SEP 20, 2004
Interesting redition of a Belgian Style ale, very dark for a "golden" ale and very rich and malty. sweet honey along with a hoppy bitterness makes this very tasty and satisfying, North Coast is an amazing brewery, fantastic!

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - SEP 20, 2004
bottled: deep golden yellow haze with whitey on top that whiffs away quickly. nose of yeast and bubblegum. mouth follows with some yeast , banana, crushed pepper. watermelon seed and a bit of old jack frost. not too bad. better then i thought it would be.
