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.

Tap, snifter. Yellow with slight head. Slight fruity/candi sugar aroma. Malty with a big full round flavor. Nothing special, but drinkable.

Poured a hazy orange with a white head. Aroma was of citrus, fruits, and spices. Medium bodied mouthfeel. Peaches, lemon zest, orange peel, and spice on the tongue. For the style this was a nice beer, although it reminded me of a white beer.

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - FEB 28, 2004
WooHooo, finally a chance to use my new Orval glass I got from Liquid Solutions. Pours a very cloudy amber with a rather disappointing head and no lacing. Smells spicy and fruity. Tastes is a very complex mixture of cloves, bananas, apricots, and a few other spices and fruits. Very nice indeed. Mouthfeel is heavy for a Belgian but plenty of carbonation. Drinkability is good. Great price ($1.70) for a fine Belgian style beer.

Bottle at the Flying Saucer in Nashville. No head, foggy amber color. Nice citrusy aroma full of apricots and grapefruit. A little hops and some malt. Fairly smooth, somewhat bitter. Overall a decent Belgian Ale.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 26, 2004
12 oz capped bottle: dense fizzy off-white head above an opaque orange wheat coloured body. Fleshy apricot aroma with notes of warm sourdough, orange coriander, banana peel, vanilla beans, cinnamon, and light alcohol burn. Peppery palate, with moist orange slices, bubble gum, bananas, and fine yeast carried across the tongue with soft carbonation. Esters are evident thru-out along with a chewy, doughy finish, nice.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2004 ReRate-5/6/04-The previously hazy bottles I had cleared and the beer seemed to improve-still not my favorite belgian style rendition, but enjoyable still. Interesting aromatics and nice malty base.

UNCCTF (512) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - FEB 18, 2004
This beer had very little aroma, nor did it have much in the way of appearance. But the flavor was very complex - a malty flavor with some sour characteristics. The aftertaste was warm and very smooth. Good ale.

Very nice! Belgian spiciness and beautiful texture, nicely fruity taste and professionally hopped as well. Lovely color and head.

Pleasant banana/orange aroma. Dark yellow and orange color. Small head with no lacing. Bananas and citrus is all I can taste. Nothing I would want to write home about. At all.
