PranQster pours a nice, deep, hazy straw yellow with a light, frothy white head that stands at about two fingers and dissipates quickly.
Lots of spicy fruit on the nose. Sweet and almost tropical on the top but supported well by the classic "Belgian spice".Banana also lying underneath the tropical fruit scent. There’s a yeasty bready smell here lingering around too. Very crisp and refreshing on the olfactory
Very crisp Belgian spice taste with some remarkable earthy flavors. Sweet on the center but not as tropical as on the nose. I get some bread and yeast but only on the back of the tongue. Definitely dominated by the Belgian yeast.
Crisp and carbonated as a Belgian should be.
Really tasty Belgian style for a reasonable price. I’ve yet to be let down by North Coast and this is just another easy drinker Belgian that proves their worth.

Bottle in the Marketplace Ale House, Doncaster. Pours golden with a thin white head. Fruity peach aroma. The taste is lightly spicy booze with a little peach. Caramel, tea and orange peel too. OK.

Draft. It pours a hazy pale yellow/orange color with a white head. The aroma is lightly spicy with some ginger, coriander and orange. The flavor is a bit sweeter with banana, ginger, coriander orange and tangerine. A little peppery spice in the finish, which is a bit on the sweet side. Not bad.

A little bit of banana and yeasty funkiness but still very light body. You can smell this one from quite a ways off. I drank it, and now it is in my belly.

Eigentlich nichts Ungewöhnliches. Und in Belgien würden sie hier nicht mal mit der Wimper für zucken. Fluffig und hopfig mit einem guten Schuss Hefe und ein bisschen Frucht nebst Getreide. Kann man trinken, bietet jedoch nicht wirklich viel außer etwas Süße und einem milden Abschluss.

PranQster? I only just met her! Sorry. Unlike that joke, a pale Belgian-style ale never gets old. This gold-colored beer looks lovely in a tulip glass with its effervescent body and fluffy head. Aroma gives off yeast esters that are fruity, earthy, bread-like, and a bit spicy. The flavor is a balanced mix of banana, crisp clove, and rich malt. Does it taste like something that comes from Belgium? Sure. Is it one of the best Belgian-style brews to be made stateside. I think so, yes. Was the 4-pack a good idea? Definitely. Why the hell am I asking so many rhetorical questions? This has to be better than the -er jokes, right? Damn, that’s another rhetorical question.

Lekker fris Amerikaans blond bier, een van mijn favoriete in Californië denk ik.

Great mouthfeel, very creamy and carbonated, reminiscent of a hefeweissen but instead of bananas it tastes like lemon pith or white wine grapes. Very well balanced. Great session beer.

A really really nice golden ale. Best after warming a bit in the glass and opening up a bit. Very smooth, nice citrus notes.
