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.

Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - FEB 22, 2005
Bottle: Aroma is very sweet and malty. Apple, banana, citrus, and a little spice. Pours a hazy orangish-yellow with small white head that struggles to get going and quickly becomes a ring around the glass. Sweet up front with some apple. Finishes citrusy with a moderate sourness and lots of spice.

ChrisPants (317) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 19, 2005
Bottle. Poured liquid gold, zero head. Aroma of candi sugar and lavender, touch of standard Belgian yeast. Flavor same. Mouthfeel rich and a bit sticky, carbonated just right. Better than most beers, but lower in the Belgian category than others Ive tried. My rating may be skewed down in how it compares to these others within the same style

Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - FEB 16, 2005
A nice enough Belgian. A little bit orangish in flavor and aroma. Golden color with a thin white head. Had much less taste than I expected from it.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2005
On tap, pours out a cloudy orange with a medium lasting head. Very fruity (citrusy) and yeasty aroma. The flavor is more subtle with noticeable yeast and spices with accents of malt. Nice fruity clean finish.

BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 27, 2005
One of the better Belgian clones out there. Many artisan fruity flavor elements are present such as clove-spice and a bit of citrus. This brew also has traits of a less sophisticated wheat beer, especially in the aroma. Pranqster lacks the champagne-like dynamic carbonation and thick headiness of an authentic Belgian ale. Yet there are enough flavor positives that its definitely worth a try.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - JAN 21, 2005
Very well hidden alcohol flavor. Golden color, with an average head, flavor was good, you wouldnt think this was brewed in Cali, they did well with it!

Braudog (6630) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JAN 14, 2005
Bright orange like Tony the Tiger with thin white toupee. Yeasty orange aroma. Fruity and yeasty flavor, not too different than a funky orange soda.

SpringsLicker (3606) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 4, 2005
Hazy burnished gold color, almost white head of modest size which is quite proper for the style. Excellent lacing. Robust musty, spicy aroma. Full flavor, sweet and fruity, good finish. Surprisingly good Belgian, even more so that its brewed on the West Coast. I have passed over this in the store for a long time and someone had to give me one to get me to try it.
