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.

Very easily drinkable, almost too easy. Very nice ale, with beautiful aroma and very clean taste.

While this has considerable, even tripel-level strength, I found this rather easy drinking and balanced. Perhaps a bit of sourness, but generally not bad at all.

TheTsunami (162) - Arizona, USA - NOV 20, 2002
Nice amber color, Good head. Very yeasty aroma, perhaps due to the "floaties" that came out upon pouring. Spicy flavor.

Allseeingeye (223) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 13, 2002
Golden orange hue. Very small head. Oafish looking group of sots on the label. Small halo of bubbles leaves a microfine mesh of lace. Yeasty bread and floral smell accompanied by malt and spice aromas. Wafts of alcohol and citrus notes emanating from underneath. Fruity flavored with a certain vanilla dryness. Smooth clean finish.

mikenodak (150) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - NOV 4, 2002
spicy, sprucy, fruity, malty taste followed by grapefruit. This is a good example of the Belgian blonde style.

Golden light color. Cotton candy nose with hints of apple. Good amounts of carbination. Finishes with a dry, burn caramel taste.

JMerritt (1767) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2002
Pours a light orange color with a small head. Tons of tiny particles are suspended throughout. I found the aroma of this brew to be too alcoholic and noxious. Flavor, however, is very full and hides the alcohol rather well. Somewhat sweet initial flavor that turns citric and then hoppy. Outside of the aroma, very nice!

Very good. Orange/golden color, decent head. Slightly wheaty. A very good American style Belgian. Nice work, North Coast.
