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.

Unfiltered amber/orange appearance. Spicy, yeasty aroma. Head started strong, faded fairly quickly. Citrus fruit taste with some tartness, balanced with a nice wheat/malt finish that imparted a sour apple flavor.

(11May2003--12oz.bottle) Excell effort. Anything labeled "golden ale" is easy to screw up, and this one comes through with no major faults. Active, inviting head; straw-colored with light lace, and very persistent carbonation. Pours deep golden, medium haze. Aromas of coriander, and a refreshing floral hint, with a note of fruity esters. Very clean. Crisp on the palate, but appropriately sour, good malt presence. Finishes with peach notes. A bit limp, but the fantastic carbonation redeems this fault. Little to no overt alcohol presence, but the increasing warming that you experience confirms alcohol's presence.

Bottle. A nice hazy orange color with a foamy white head. Corriander, orange, banana, spice and citrus in the aroma. A crisp bite on the palate with a strong flavor.

NIIICE!!! Sort of a like a belgian witbier. The alcohol is so concealed you'd think you were sipping a 3.2% beer from Utah. Light and refreshing, with tons of wheat and citrus notes.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - APR 29, 2003
This was the 3rd or 4th from North Coast that I've tried and the first one that actually impressed me. Nice Wheaty malt flavor. Slight citrus notes but not as pronounced as others I've had in the same style. White tight head that stood well on it's own. A little on the crisp side for this style but very refreshing anyway. I'll most likely buy again

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - APR 27, 2003
Pours the color of apricot with a medium rocky white head. Nose is peach and spice. Flavor is yeasty, fruity and spice. Aftertaste is dry, orange peel.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 19, 2003
Poured a true golden color color with lots of yeast in suspension. A frothy medium sized head. A floral, banana aroma with hints of orange peel and spices. A nice fruity taste with spices and a nice acidity. A slightly dry finish. Smooth and full palate.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - APR 17, 2003
Very nice golden color, with white sediment floating and then falling, thin head dissipates quickly. Malty sweet fruit/yeast aroma. Begins on the sweet side, the citrus presence, has enough body and a good full mouthfeel, and finishes with some spice. Overall very well balanced and a worthy experience. Enjoyed this very much.

(bottle) It's a cloudy, orangy color. My first impression was it was nicely sweet. Its got a nice fruity flavor which was quite pleasent.

A most welcome belgian beauty after a sea of malt liquor in the chatroom tasting...mercy i cried..mercy!!! This one pours an orange and yellow mixture with a small but noticable yeast sediment layer at the bottom of my chimay chalice. The head was small and pearl white, but lasted for a bit. The carbonation was active, yet medium on the palate. The aroma seeps of yeast, citrusy lemon, orange and peaches and peppery spices. The taste is a syrupy citrus tang. Definite lemon and orange presences..perhaps peach..a little spicing to add vigor. Very nice round mouthfeel...really perked my tongue up and im mightily pleased...
