COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian Ales represent the height of the brewersí 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.

Not bad. Good head, pretty color. The alcohol is a bit too assertive, but what can you do? Vaguely tropical tasting. Just a hint though.

Pours cloudy deep golden color, decent frothy white clingy head. Hoppy floral-citrusy aroma, fruity spicy balanced flavors and nice yeasty flavors, nice crisp finish. Full bodied and mouthfeel, pretty good overall for the style.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JAN 7, 2003
A nice golden color,aroma was wheaty with some yeast and citrus to it.Flavor was wheaty with some citrus very lite in itís feel,the finish was citrus with a very slight alcohol after taste hard to describe but it has i reminisce feel of some kind of cough syrup in the after taste as well not that,thats bad because in this case itís not.Aha the citrus flavor is that of lemon,i just got it.Still canít figure out that finish it escapes wordís for me.Robutussin,or 44D just a hint mind you but itís there.oh well itís still well worth another one .Overall itís a very good beer.

Good quality with an authentic belgian taste. Yeasty, and not much on hops, but all flavor and aroma are derived from the yeast. Slightly citrousy and has a sour finish. Cloudy appearance. Little bit of spice in the initial taste.

Deep glowing golden color, head disappeared quickly. Spicy nose of clove-coriander(?) crisp on the tongue. Semi-sweet finish, almost honeylke.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - DEC 20, 2002
I would say this beer was on par with my expectations of a Belgian ale. Hazy gold color, poor head retention (I may have poured it too gently). Yeasty, estery aroma, typical for a Belgian, nothing extravagant. Same goes for the flavor, not as sweet as some Belgians. Interesting finish, tough to describe, not really bitter, sweet, or dry.

GermanBrews76 (678) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 17, 2002
Loaded with sediment. Lots of neat, erratic belgian lace. Soft buttery & kind of sweet. Lots of yeast, reminds me of a nice wheat!! =) Surprisingly bitter taste, full of zest and body. A strons somewhat satly finish, wierd.

color is a very hazy golden with lots and lots of suspended floaties. head is short-lived though. aroma is quite fruity with a bit of pronounced clove. flavor is heavy on the spice with some fruit..but finish is strong on clove.
