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.

caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 7, 2012
Pours cloudy golden with a touch of sediment and a light white head. Nose if fairly bland and typical of the style, with candied sugar, oranges, coriander, and a touch of floral hops. Flavor is very bready and reminds me of a german hefe; bread and light hops quickly move to a generic sweet fruit, spice, and a little alcohol before fading fast on the backside. Finish is weak. Decent ale but nothing to brag about.

ffbot (87) - Oakland, California, USA - SEP 30, 2015
Got this on tap @ Starry Plough Oakland. Aroma was floral, citrus. Nice lively sparkling yellow gold with no head. Taste followed the smell: orange, lemon, floral and herbs. Well balanced. No heavy aftertaste, dissipated quickly. I liked it

MaBeer1972 (1512) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 28, 2015
Single bottle from W&M Mansfield. Poured into a tulip. A deep golden amber with a frothy off-white head that settles to a thick lace. Classic Belgian yeast profile. Bready backbone with earthy-citrus flavors. Well-balanced bitterness and candy sweetness.

zoucrew102 (949) - - SEP 13, 2015
Bottle. Banana aroma with clove and wheat malt notes. Pours cloudy golden colored with a thin white head with decent retention and some lacing. Starts with sweet banana and wheat malt flavors. Finishes smooth with spicy clove flavors coming through with the other flavors. Nice Belgian.

bartlebier (2760) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - SEP 12, 2015
12oz Rudat via Derer Imp. ("MHD 10/2015", but what about the original BB date?). - Odd starchy pollen nose, green banana peel, mild honey, thin clove. Tastes transported on a thin and almost too clean mouthfeel for a Belgian ale (although I do welcome the lack of Liquid candi sugar-powered Belgian slick-oiliness on the palate here): honeyed malts, banana peel, sweet grapejuice, an odd tinny hop bitterness. Feels deliberately "composed" instead of grown into an organic whole, but is actually quite drinkable and very dry, without those style-defining fuming phenols.

60minuteman (1090) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2015
Bottle. Pour a light reddish-orange. Sediment abound. A confusing ale. Smells of starch and grapefruit. Wheat and malt and citrus and spice. Feels holiday-like. Unpleasant like one too.

Sdaniel90 (573) - Mexico City, MEXICO - SEP 5, 2015
3oz sampe at Cerveza Mexico 2015. Clear light golden with a minimal head. Sweet citrus and sour tart and barnyard aromas. Sweet and sour as expected, with a strong Belgian malt character and a fruity and stinging bitter finish.

MoritzF (8860) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - AUG 30, 2015
(bottle, 35.5cl) Slightly hazy, golden colour with a blond medium-sized foamy head. Yeasty, delicately sugary malty aroma with spicy and subtle fruity notes. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium to full bodied with a soft carbonation. Slightly biscuity and sugary malty base with yeasty spice, delicately fruity notes and a whiff of caramel; sweet malty and moderately bitter, spicy and slightly alcoholic finish. Not a must. 04.V.15
