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.

Good Belgian. Orange/golden cloudy appearance with a small, dissappearing white foamy head. Decent yeasty, citrus(orange), spicy aroma. Good flavor of fruity malts. Spice aftertaste on the tongue. Maybe a little too yeasty. Good amount of sediment on the bottom of the bottle and glass. Otherwise an enjoyable Belgian Ale.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 20, 2004
Pours a hazy golden hue, bordering on orange, with a thick full crackling head. Nose is fresh, sea-foamy, perfumey, gracious and elegantly aromatic. Some spie, delicate fruit, orange, citrus, apricot, nectarine...sublime! Same beautiful and vibrant impact on the tongue as the best Belgians. Nice, but too brief, finish and, ultimately, a touch too sugary-sweet

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

As soon as I had one of these that I bought on the way home after work, I was thinking it was worth a good rating. I read other ratings and wasnt surprised that this one has fairly unanimously favorable opinions. I noticed in the ratings those typical words associated with this type of ale, such as banana, spice, etc, and I agreed with them. I sum it up by saying that its rich without being overwhelming. Its balanced but not boring. You can drink it fast or slow, and enjoy it either way. I like to take a few big guzzles, then settle down and sip it slowly, and savoring it. This one really delivers the flavor and the punch. It kicks a little with the above average alcohol level without being too imposing. Its a very well made ale. I had it a few months ago and it didnt taste quite this good. Its very smooth, and slightly sweet, yet I can taste some zingy hops in it. This is the type of ale that comes as close or maybe closer to my idea of the perfect ale as any other ale does.

A hazy orange beer with no head. The aroma is sweet with notes of peach and spices. The flavor is sweet with notes of peach and alcohol, that prickles the tongue.

Sammy (11849) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2004
Aggressive yeast, in terms of aroma and taste for a Belgium, but otherwise true to its style. Coriander, vanilla, nutmeg. Quite quafable. Sweet-spicy. Medium-full mouthfeel.

Thanks to my neighbor for this one. Though I am not a big fan of Belgian ales this one was pretty good. Quite warming and easy to drink.

flemdawg (561) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2004
Hazy golden color with yeast sediment at the bottom and an off white head. Banana, belgium yeasts, and cloves in the aroma. Some faint candy sweetness too. A bit of floral in the taste, but more yeasts and sugary sweetness. Tasty, and recommended.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2005 This is one of the coolest bottle labels I have ever seen. Something about the jovial guys drinking in a nice lil pub makes me happy. This beer adds to that happiness, with its light fruit flavors and tangy citrus bite. Would like to see this one offered as a corked bottle.
