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.

Hazy golden orange, with a quickly disapating white head. Fruity yeasty aroma. Flavors of yeast,pear and apples. Alcohol is slightly noticeable. Not bad.

Beautiful tangerine color - although the head's a bit thin. There's quite a bit of yeast chillin' in the bottle, so much in fact that I accidentally poured some in and there's still a good inch of beer left there. Without surprise this is quite yeasty, generally bubblegummy - the traditional generic Belgian yeast. So many American brewers do this when using the Belgian yeast...I'm beginning to lose faith.

I wasn't too impressed with this beer. It didn't smell very good and it tasted kind like woody flavor. It kind of grows on you though. It wasn't bad, but not great.

Hmmm...I think this one is decent. A slightly bitter, hoppy, orange-nosed brew, with some hints of sweetness that balance it all out. Yeasty and cakey aroma, spicy finish.

Yeasty, fruity nose - cloudy golden, tiny white lacing - flavor is a bit thin, but has decent combination of yeastiness, grainy flavors, floral hops, slight sweetness - finish is a bit watery - a decent effort, but falls short.

This Ale radiates a beautiful foggy golden orange body and a bulky yet somehow compact head. Nose of coriander, orange pulp, and yeasty bread like similarities. Very delicate oily mouth feel. The flavor reminds me of angel food cake, notes of honey, and melons, Yes; that’s it, Honeydew. I will end it with that a ripe golden honeydew melon, so ripe its oozing, so sweet your lips are sticky, ok, somehow this rating took a turn to the sexual side so I’m out.

First off let me preface this rating with the fact that I am new to Belgian style ales (I have only had about 5 different ones). I don't understand why some don't like this one. Very peach to citrus aroma with lime tones. Poured very orange and cloudy. A bit sweet for my taste but compared to the other Belgian ale's I have had this one compares quite well with this style. Palate was a little too rich and somewhat unbalanced but not bad.

Bought in the 12 oz brown stubbie with a marvelous 17th century drinkinf scene on the label. In appearance the beer is a lovelly deep golden colour with an everlasting pure white head, great swirls of carbonation. Oh my what a fine aroma this beer has, wonderfully fruity with banana predominating..coriander present..very fresh smelling. A lovely fizzy sweet fruitiness in taste, banan and coriander( slightly over ripe banana)..sweet sherbet great stuff. Wonderfully creamy but with a fizzy kick. A very drinkable Belgian style..I loved this beer..will by many many more.

A very drinkable and enjoyable Belgian Ale indeed!I liked this one from the moment I tasted it and I definitely would enjoy having this one again and again!It poured a small sized white head with fine-small sized bubbles that fully dissipated.The body was carbonated, clear with floaties and it had a golden hue.The nose was malty and fruity with a sweet and fruity flavor from start to finish.The palate was smooth, somewhat thin and light bodied.There was a fair amount of lacing with this beer.
