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.

Yeasty, doughy, floral nose; creamy and sweet, with a lightly citrusy and fruity (banana, pear) flavor with hints of bubblegum and orange. Damn! This is SO good. Clean and well balanced, though not overly complex, this is a true joy; what a suprise!

This seems like a Tripel to me, and a good one at that. Nice yeasty aroma with a flavor of bubblegum and cloves with some fruitiness as well.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 10, 2004
Bottle. Bright peachy orange, smallish head. Delightful, strong fruity aroma: peaches, apricots, a hint of figs & bananas, yeast. Flavor disappointingly pedestrian, though: heavily yeasty and carbonated, with a spicy pepperiness and little fruity sweetness or malt character. Sour and mouth-puckering in the finish .. this seems way off to me, don't know if it's a bad bottle or I just don't like it.

Hazy orange color with small off-white head. Slight spicy-fruity nose. Medium body with fruity tast and watery finish. A little too much carbonation on this taste.
