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.

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.

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.

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!

Kevin (2192) - 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 (9999) - 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...
