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.

This pours a cloudy lake of golden straw with a slightly grainy sweet smell. It has a citrus twang to it, but not like a burning lemon, more like a mellow lime-like overtone. A yeasty theme adds to a spicy body, making for an interesting taste. A clove dominating finish rounds it out nicely.

Loads of spice in the nose. The brew is pleasantly acidic. The palate features a refined fruitiness with a nice sweetness. Overall this brew reminds me of a Triple Light.

Too spciy for my tastes. Tasted like alcohol and cloves more than beer. This beer kind of ruined my meal. Hopefully I just had a bad bottle.

solar golden warmth in a glass: a real goldfinch hue. a thin head like a half inch kansas snowfall on sunlit wheat. particulate matter is nearly microbial but dense as soup stock. bridal gown lacy and perfumy, i get the yeasty notes first, like a ream of fresh paper, then pear/spicy apple sauce and golden raisin with gossamer alcohol shading. smooth as milk, demure but winning sweetness. i only have one bottle but already iím pining for a second date...

Quite decent and affordable for Belgian-style. Iíd put it on par with a Leffe.

Good, but not great. The coolest thing about this brew is the old guys getting hammered on the label. There was a bit of a fog present with the consistancy of the beer.

Okay, this beer poured out a golden color. White head that didnít hold. The beer was cloudy with evident sediment floating in it. A citrus and spice smell with some elements which are probably yeast. The taste of it definately had some citrus elements. The overall taste is pretty good. For a strong ale style, it hid itís alcohol well.
