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.

mtlasley (39) - Anna, Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2012
PranQster pours a nice, deep, hazy straw yellow with a light, frothy white head that stands at about two fingers and dissipates quickly. Lots of spicy fruit on the nose. Sweet and almost tropical on the top but supported well by the classic "Belgian spice".Banana also lying underneath the tropical fruit scent. Theres a yeasty bready smell here lingering around too. Very crisp and refreshing on the olfactory Very crisp Belgian spice taste with some remarkable earthy flavors. Sweet on the center but not as tropical as on the nose. I get some bread and yeast but only on the back of the tongue. Definitely dominated by the Belgian yeast. Crisp and carbonated as a Belgian should be. Really tasty Belgian style for a reasonable price. Ive yet to be let down by North Coast and this is just another easy drinker Belgian that proves their worth.

Originally rated on 2/13/09. A nice hazy golden yellow body with plenty of carbonation that left nice thick lace. Aroma of yeast,a little fruit, with a touch of spice. Flavor was similar to the aroma but there was a slight metallic hint to it so i couldnt rate it higher in that category. Mouthfeel was decent, and it had a nice finish. Overall it was a pretty good beer, give it a try belgian ale fans.

migwell (357) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - APR 5, 2017
Had this right after a disappointing Ommegang Witte. Immediate reaction...relief. This one hits the spot as a flavorful, easy drinking brew. Bottle into a big Sam Smith nonic. Not much foam, but a persisting thin white film.The ale is a cloudy yellow/orange with quite visible tiny and active bubbles quickly floating upward. Aroma of bread, spice, yeast. Good full flavor same as the aroma... light on the banana, thank the lords. Crisp, well balanced, dry, very pleasant. A good take on this style and with a bang for your buck as well.

oobawa (1193) - Tennessee, USA - APR 2, 2017
Tasty pseudo-Belgian, big bright clove-laced sweetness mixing with grass and banana, a mild yeasty tartness adding a nice background. Gains fruity esters as it warms, then dries up somewhat for the sparkly finish. Easy to drink, easy to drink more.

imdownthepub (14313) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2017
Bottled, 355ml from Favourite Beers of Cheltenham, Gloucs. Gold with white head. Remarkably thin beer for the ABV and style, strained, boiled vegetable notes in a weak malt then a perfumed, slightly oily hopped note. No off notes, some fruitiness. A bit of a disappointment.

willisread (3246) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - MAR 21, 2017
1 year old bottle from Discount. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a small white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Faint lemon, grain, mustiness and estery pear on the nose. Active carbonation, with a light mouthfeel for the abv. Pear, apple, musty hay, some faint yeast all come alive as it warms. Pink peppercorn and a hint of ginger leaves on the finish. Very nice.

beer-yum (1614) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 10, 2017
Alluring floral aroma in a golden pour. Laid back balance with complex, yet subtle, hints of spice, bread, and dried fruit. Clean finish leaves one wanting another (and what more do you want)?

RexTalionis (3713) - FINLAND - JAN 14, 2017
Bottle. Hazy orange in color with a whitish head. Garden fruityness, some floral summer meadow and bit of yeasty vibes in aroma, light spicyness too. Bready malts, some coriander spciness and sweet tropical fruitynes in taste. Interesting. Light bitterness and lemon in the end. Refreshing brew.
