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.

chickenflea (332) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2010
12-oz bottle. I agree with "Nate" and have used some of the words in his description: "Great tripel aroma, sweet honey and citrus oil, candi sugar, Belgian yeast and bit of funk. Golden amber cloudy, with thin off-white head. Medium bodied with medium-heavy carbonation. Starts with grainy sweetness, candi sugar, funky yeasty chalk and light honey. Mild fruity hops and rind bitter in the finish. Sweet tripel aftertase. Nice alcohol warming." This beer is surprisingly refreshing for a tripel. The high carbonation and light texture make if very drinkable.

pjames317 (69) - Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2014
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.
