4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a bright orange-gold, like glowing embers. Ephemeral white fluffy head, which dissipates to an archipelago of lively suds reacting with the yeast. Aroma of spicy yeast, coriander, golden raisins, mild clove and nectarines. Flavor is assertive, peppery Belgian yeast. Notes of banana bread, crisp perfume floral hops, pleasantly phenolic, plum-like fruit quality. A really nice take on a classic style. If the pepper notes were dimmed down a bit, this would be an absolute pace setter for American Belgian-style beers.

Small dense white head, pale light gold body, nice Belgian ale, something different among the bottle selection at a pub yesterday, I enjoyed a few and grabbed a 4 pack on the way home. I’m enjoying one at this moment. Research and stuff. Will buy again.
