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.

ElDesmadre (3053) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAY 31, 2016
Bottle. Very fruity, wioth notes of apricot, banana and peach, only light phenolic in the aroma. The flavour is more spicy, complemented with a honey note. Sweetish, light tartish, dry in the finish, with notes of overripe fruit. Excellent.

blipp (7865) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 18, 2016
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Some fruity yeasty notes, a bit of banana, low residual sweetness, low bitterness, and some lingering spicy yeast and phenolic notes. Solid.

katrinaez (1114) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2016
On tap at beerfest. Cloudy yellow with medium foam. Very bready/yeasty. Strong taste but not quite strong enough.

jsporrer (466) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2016
Poured from a bottle. Pours a cloudy dirty yellow amber with a medium head of white foam. Medium carbonation with plenty of lacing. Aroma is tart and bready, with light spices. Crisp, clean, refreshing taste. Light bready yeast with a hint of tart citrus. Body feels a little thin and watery. Flavor is not bold enough. Enjoyable but just a tad too light.

Bright clear gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is light, dry and has decent fine carbonation. Dry malts. Spice. Banana esters. Bright dried fruits. More spice in the light dry finish. Spicy linger. Wants something else to hold it all together.

ebone1988 (1035) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - APR 27, 2016
Aroma is dusty, banana, malt, yeast, barnyard. Appearance is dark golden, hazy, white head. Taste is banana, clove, sharp, tropical fruit, pine. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, dusty barnyard and sharp banana aftertaste. Overall, on the low end of Belgian Ales for me.

NikkTwist (2469) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2016
UPDATED: APR 25, 2016 Draft at Bru Craft. Very hazy golden yellow pour with a a slim but lasting bit of off-white foam. Slightly tart. Slightly funky. Lots of lemony peachy herbal flavors going on. Slight spicy hop bite. Unexpectedly full body. Thinking the strong Belgium yeast works against this one. It is the only element that feels out of place.
