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.

Bottle. Poured golden orange with a small white head that disappeared quickly. Aroma is nice, yeasty, fruity - apricots and a hint of pineapple - with coriander and clove. Flavor sweet and fruity, also noticible pepper, and a lingering bitter hop bite. Mouthfeel is smooth, medium body and slight carbonation.

Hazy golden orange color, white head, plenty of lace. Aroma was fruity, yeasty, a bit spicy and a touch of wheat. Flavor was slightly citrusy, with a bit of wheat, malt, and coriander. Medium body fit well. Nice balance, quite nice.

Clear golden, decent head and lace. Nose of light malt, banana, corriander and a hint of wheat. Medium bodied, sweet, citrusy, nice wheat and yeast notes, some bitterness. Very well balanced and rounded. Good brew.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2003 I'm rather disappointed in this. I didn't find it very Belgian in flavor. It really tasted EXACTLY like a batch of homebrew I did, when I got the idea of brewing a hefeweizen but with more malt. That's all it really was to me, just a stronger hefeweizen. For what it is, it is good. But I don't consider this a Belgian and it's slightly overpriced. All the characteristics of a hefeweizen on steroids. Good for what it is. North Coast seems to be hit-and-miss and this is one of their misses. Not worth the money, and it only came in a 4-pack. I regret buying this.

Hazy golden orange, with a quickly disapating white head. Fruity yeasty aroma. Flavors of yeast,pear and apples. Alcohol is slightly noticeable. Not bad.

Beautiful tangerine color - although the head's a bit thin. There's quite a bit of yeast chillin' in the bottle, so much in fact that I accidentally poured some in and there's still a good inch of beer left there. Without surprise this is quite yeasty, generally bubblegummy - the traditional generic Belgian yeast. So many American brewers do this when using the Belgian yeast...I'm beginning to lose faith.

I wasn't too impressed with this beer. It didn't smell very good and it tasted kind like woody flavor. It kind of grows on you though. It wasn't bad, but not great.

Hmmm...I think this one is decent. A slightly bitter, hoppy, orange-nosed brew, with some hints of sweetness that balance it all out. Yeasty and cakey aroma, spicy finish.

Yeasty, fruity nose - cloudy golden, tiny white lacing - flavor is a bit thin, but has decent combination of yeastiness, grainy flavors, floral hops, slight sweetness - finish is a bit watery - a decent effort, but falls short.
