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.

motelpogo (7705) - 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 (144) - 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 (643) - 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.

kumite56 (473) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - AUG 13, 2004
This beer poors a nice golden color witha cloudy appearance. Armma is malty,yeasty and with floral hops and some fruit. Falvor is sl sweet but I downgraded this beer with the significant sour finish. Bitter I understand but the sour appeard to me to be a deduction. Not bad but for my money there are lots better for purchase.

HopsformyHips (113) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - AUG 13, 2004
Very true to its kind....with its yeasty and very floral nose. This was a golden cluoudy pour with a quickly diminishing white head. A creamy, fresh fruity (more citrusy) slightly sweet flavor. I prefered the inital taste to the more mild yet hoppy finish. Refreshingly nice.

Quetzalcoatl (153) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 11, 2004
Scores points for aroma and appearance, this is a pretty beer. Has a slightly murky light golden color and a fair white head. And although it tastes good, it leaves me wanting more. It’s a bit thin, and a little sweet, but certainly masks the 7.6%.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2004
The peachy color with light head and fruity aroma told me that this was going to be good. There’s a sweetness without being cloying and a frutiness without being overbearing of the malts. I wouldn’t have believed it was a 7.6 if I hadn’t read the label.

mjg74 (2950) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 8, 2004
Pours the color of some sort of orange colored nectar, very hazy. Little head. I really like the taste of this stuff. Tastes sweet and fruity, almost pearlike. Also has a spicy taste to it. You can taste the alcohol a little which gives it a nice finish.
