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.

Light yeasty nose, a bit of funk, not unpleasant but not outstanding. Hazy golden pour. Taste is light, fruity, and wet. Slight dry note on the back end of the sip but overall not dry, quite enjoyable. Similar to a tripel but the alcohol is not very apparent. Fruity with notes of citrus and peach - mostly peach if I would have to say. Moderately complex for something lighter. If the finish were not muddled I would rate it higher.

Light for a Belgian ale. Malty with a little fruity sweetness and a spice on the back of the tongue.

Very impressive Belgian style from a United States brewery. I will give this a 3.5.

EtTuCthulhu (1295) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - APR 23, 2015
The beer pours an opaque golden color with a small white head that fades quickly. The aroma blends Belgian yeast, stone fruit, and bready malts. The taste is mildly sweet and a touch sour with Belgian yeast notes in the initial taste and through the finish. The palate fuses a thick texture, medium body, and a soft yet biting carbonation.

Orange pour with no head at rural society. Orange and vanilla notes. Creamy fruity happiness. Weird style. I like

demannu (126) - New Jersey, USA - APR 2, 2015
Floral and citrus aroma. Light golden color. No lacing. Flavor is heavy yeast and wheat with some fruity notes and herbal presence. Soft body, quite refreshing palate with a clean finish. While classified as a Belgian strong ale, i relate it more to a wheat beer. And this doesn’t quite compete with the top wheats. Decent beer, just not good enough to earn space in my basement.

On tap at CBB Bud. Pranqster a cloudy light gold with a nice funky belgian nose. Wonderfully soft body that caresses your tastebuds. A solid straight up belgian ale.

Creamy buttery aroma with citrus lemon and pepper. Bready. Taste is same wheat like zest, citrus, tang in finish, some creaminess. Foamy and citrusy overall mainly wheat beer like with more body. Some yeast funkiness. For NC I was expecting this to be a bit more likable.
