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.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 14, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2004 Super-hazy, yeasty vivid orange. Quirky appearance, but forebodes a formidable yeasty goodness. Aroma is leathery, clove-like, slight grapefruit and orange, and slightly sour. Slight tarnish of bacon grease/ ham hock. Flavor is initially sour building into a pleasant tea-like sweetness. Metallic (tin) sidetracks. Musty, noble bitterness that builds throughout the swallow. Very smooth drinking and quite pleasant. Downsides are the meaty notes in the aroma and metallicness in flavor. Superb carbonation level laminates a creamily smooth body. A bargain @ $4.99/4 pack.

DYCSoccer17 (3481) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 13, 2004
Pours a VERY HAZY orange--too orange. Head is Less than expected, but white. Aroma is yeastly, with some sitrus and maybe some cloves in there. Start is yeastly, with some fruit in the middle. Bitter-Ethanol-Metallic ending. The ending is rather unpleasant, and I cant get away from this metallic taste. Somewhat of a disappointment to me.

Milky copper in the glass, nearly no head. Lemon, bananna, vanilla and wheat nose. Sweet tasting, wheet bananna and very right vanilla with a hint of spice.

snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - JAN 10, 2004
Nice gold color on the pour, white head. Aroma is sweet, yeasty and spicy. Flavor is much the same as the aroma, definite sweetness up front before the hop spicyness cuts it.
