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.

Acidic, spicy (cinamon)aoma. Semi-sweet with a sour finish. Full flavored with a moderate body.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - AUG 17, 2003
Golden amber hue. Orange, bubble gum aroma. A fairly full bodied flavor, expected a little more taste. Floral in the aftertaste, maybe a little honey. Alcohol is well hidden. Nice beer.

A nice sweet aroma greets you. pleasant flavors, belgian yeasts creating a fruit and banana top note.

A very typical take on a style that they could have largely improved on. I expected more, but do not get me wrong, there were some good complexities here in the flavor, but nothing unique that makes it stand up above the rest.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2003 Very yeasty aroma and flavor. Pranqster only costs a $1.19 at World Market in Seattle and is a bargain. Should be able to match up to any true Belgian Ale. High alcohol is easily masked by complex maltiness. Worth trying!

12 oz. brown bottle. Decanted off the yeast so I can make a starter for homebrew. Anyway, it poured out a dark golden yellow color, with a slight head that lasted to the end. Thick yeast sediment in the bottle. Aromas of Belgian yeast, malts, candi sugar, and bananas. Slight phenols in the background. Faint hops aroma, nothing spectacular. Average taste & mouthfeel. Nothing to write home about, however.

BtownBrewer (91) - Belchertown, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 6, 2003
Thin frothy white head and a pungent aroma. There's just too many flavors here, and they come together in just the right way to keep me from liking the end product.

jgb9348 (4961) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 5, 2003
Nice golden colour with a soft white head. The smell was pretty sweet, consisting of caramel and ripe fruit. The taste was pretty sweet as well, but unfortunately that was about it. Slightly hoppy near the ending, but not overpowering in the slightest. A good belgie style, but not great. I actually expected more from this beeer, but I didn't get it.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 4, 2003
Rich aroma of carmel, clove and earth. Hazy orange unfiltered color with a well developed offwhite head. Flavor was slightly sweet and tasted of a belgian ale, but there weren't many complexities. This beer finished a little musky and dry, but overall it was an average belgian offering.

haha wow, this is a great beer. it has a very good taste, a good looking pour, and an all around very good beer. typical of the north coast brewing company, one of my favorites.
