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.

A pretty straight forward attempt at a Belgie. This beer definitely went through some changes over the few weeks it took for the 4 pack to disapear. It got much smoother. It seemed to age quite quickly compared to others of the style I have seen.

Bottle. Hazed orange-amber with a small thinly laced white head. Nose is sweet and floral with lots of yeasty notes and ripe fruity esters. Taste is much the same but is a really nice surprise as this is much better than anticipated. Flowers in full bloom, ripened fruits, sweet malts, candy sugar, and yeast all battle for dominance. Body has some carbonation sharpness and is otherwise medium. Light lingering yeasty bitterness. Finish is more flowers, big yeast notes, light grass or hay, ripened bananas, some grains of paradise, and light bitterness. Nice beer!

12oz bottle, no BBD. Pours a golden, with a nice head. Very fruity nose, big floral aromatics...drinks medium dry, finishing in the same way...not bitter or sweet...the yeast signature is the most impressive part of this beer, it throws off a good amount of fruit and flowers...light body and very easy to drink. A nice American version of a golden ale.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - MAR 15, 2005
Yeasty and spicy aroma, citrus notes, kind of dryish. Lovely hazy golden body with a medium fluffy head. Dryish flavor and mouthfeel, the alcohol is well pronounced, some yast and spicyness.

Bottle: Pours golden with some floaters, complex bouqet fruit, mold and citrus. Goes down smooth, and finishes the same. One of the best belgians had to date.

Had at the brewery tap. Lovely nose, drawing on in to drink it. Higher alcohols create a drying, puckering mouthfeel that needed more malt in the grain bill to balance. Nice head, good beer, and one that managed to really re-start my evening for me, but seemed a bit like a one-ff - surprised to see so many reviews of it.

biz82 (1327) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2005
Golden and hazy with little head and some floaters. Funky aroma of mold, bread yeast, some rotten fruit, banana, a little candi sugar. Interesting flavors that seem to fight each other. Some bread, some spice, a little sweetness. Some fruit and citrus also. A bit of a muddled finish.

wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2005
Tasted at library alehouse in santa monica. Draft 16 ounce. Little or no aroma, appearance is golden yellow, slightly cloudy. Very thin white head. Flavour is sweet, slight honey taste, but overall one dimensional and uninteresting

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2005
Bubblegummy citrus/coriander and bananas emanates from the glass rapidly among a blast of sweet yeastiness. . Golden to light amber appearance. Generous white head. Slight notes of white wine, apple and bitter orange. Very mellow hops, dissimulated among the yeast flavors. It feels belgian enough, though a bit too sweet ultimately. If youre not gonna throw the ingredients to dry your triple out, you need to have a decadent multi-layered desserty maltiness and a complex estery profile (see tripel karmeliet) to score big with me.

Cloudy golden orange with a medium white head. Clove, coriander, yeast and banana in the nose. Pretty sweet, spicy and malty with the same notes as the aroma plus fruity esters, orange peel, lemon and floral hops. Alcohol content very well hidden. Not much bitterness detected. Medium body with subtle carbonation. No lacing, not much head retention. Overall, nice beer.
