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.

Taste is lightly malty, with fruit and Pours cloudy and head dissipated quickly. Smells moderately fruity, which extends into the taste. The taste is lightly malty with fruit lingering on the palate. Light mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Overall pretty good!

Palme (3935) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2016
0.355l bottle from Whole Foods Market Tribeca. This is a light cloudy honey-golden one with a small quickly islandy just off-white top. I get some Belgian yeasty thing on the nose next to ripe banana, flour, wheat and lots of red sweet apples. Yeah, the Belgian yeast stick in the taste also. It’s light sweet actually, nit much bitterness here. Soft oily on the mouthfeel and the carbonation is a little bit higher than average. Quite tasty i have to say. Malty sweet with that Belgian yeast running the show. Ripe zest and a little bit if banana in the taste also. Hints of the alcohol, but that could just be the Belgian yeast. Quite a pleasant one to nip to here right about now. 20.06.2013

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.
