3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rustlike color with a cloudy/yeasty appearance and a good deal of lace. A very quiet nose with some bready notes. No real hop nose. Spicy feel witha subtle hint of hop bitterness that cleans itself up by the end of the sip. Somewhat citrusy orange flavor with a hint of raisins and maple sugar.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Another world class contribution from Unibroue. Reddish amber color, thick beige head of foam, tornado of carbonation. Apple-plum in the nose, pepper spice, coconut and faint mustiness. Slightly spritzy palate, grips at first then just slides its way through with ease. A sweet red apple fruitiness is the first note in the flavor blanaced by a mild spice mid-palate. Suggestions of pineapple juice and candy sugar arrive as the beer warms.

Looks like swamp mud.
Kind of fruity sweetness like Amarilo. Another medical experiment. Reasonably speedy drinker...if you donít wanna wait for the taste. Smooth Transitional Honest Palate. The AB (AfterBelch) stinks.

I started drinking this when North Coast stopped making Pranqster for a while. It was a decent alternative but Iím glad to see the Pranq back.

Enjoyed the aroma more than the taste. The spiciness of it prevented me from enjoying this one more.Overall though...not bad.

Nice mild amber color and cloudy. Nice to see it true to style. A little hint of lime and banana at the end. One of the better Belgians I have had.
