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.

biermonk (265) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 17, 2004
POured a clear golden color with a small white head...Aroma of wheat, vanilla and corriander...Flavor pretty much follows suit...Some light tones of peach maybe...Brewed well to style...just not my favorite

reggiedunlop (3337) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Pours a hazy golden with a thin white head. Aroma has some candy sugar and tropical fruits...touch of apple. Flavor is much more earthy/pithy and bitter...still some fruitiness and a bit of yeasty spice...touch of wheat or rye? Mouthfeel is full and slightly syrupy with a dry bitter clovey/peppery finish that lingers to a minerally flavor.

odinstyr (570) - Howell, New Jersey, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Pours golden with a moderate white head. Smell is traditional Belgian yeast funk into fruit. Tasted sweet lightly bitter and lightly tart. Taste more like a farmhouse ale then a Belgian Strong ale

The first thing you notice is the honey aroma of the beer. There is very little head and there is a watery mouth feel. This Belgian style beer has a nice citrus flavor with a hint of coriander.

dlihcsnatas (388) - Texas, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Golden brew with decent head that falls fast. Smells of spice and grains. Taste is sweet grains with some hop bite. Not really getting a fruit flavor like others have pointed out but there is a definite sweetness to it. Good brew but for the cost on the four pack, this is a one time buy.

SamP01 (601) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 10, 2015
A hazy golden yellow on the pour with a medium white head. Aroma is of sweet spices, ripe fruit some notes of citrus. Taste is sweet spices, ripe fruit, Belgian yeast with a mild bitterness. Medium body with a mild crispness on the palate. Finish is sweet spices, fruity, yeast with a mild bitterness, a slight dry ending with a lingering mild bitterness. Overall a solid very good Belgian style ale.

Hud (14) - Kentucky, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Served with a nice frothy head in a half pint snifter. Smelled delicious. Had a fruity sour taste nice lingering on the palate. I forgot how good of Belgian beer can be. I loved it.

ChewyBeer (99) - SOUTH AFRICA - JAN 27, 2015
Poured from tap, cloudy golden colour with medium head. Not strong nose with a bit of sulphur. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation. Banana coming through on the flavour

UXO (534) - CANADA - JAN 25, 2015
Pours cloudy medium gold with a short, short-lived white head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, patchy lacing. (3/5) Nose is bready malt, ripe fruit, banana and faint cloves. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitterness. (6/10) Medium body, low carbonation, creamy and spicy finish. (3/5) An acceptable - if not stellar - Belg-ish pale. A shade too sweet for my preference, and lacking the crispness and dryness I associate with BSPAs. A decent American interpretation of this Belgian style, especially for the price. (14/20)

Jared_Clifton (26) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Pours very light and cloudy with a one finger head. Very light body. Very light belgian taste with floral and fruity flavors and finishes very smooth. Very easily drinkable.
