Belgian Style Golden Ale

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 produce a floral nose, a full fruity flavor and a clean finish.

Available in 12oz 4 packs and 750 ml traditionally corked and wired bottles.

BEER LOVER’S REVIEWS: Poured into a westmalle goblet, not much head, but that tends to be the case with goblets. Small amounts of lacing on the glass, but disappears pretty quickly. It’s a bright golden color that is just hazy enough to keep you from seeing through the glass. I really dig the appearance..you can tell it is well carbonated.
Smells like lemon, spices and a little bit of alcohol. I get a little bit of tart apple smell too, which I quite like. Taste is cloves, a little bit of banana and a slight alcohol burn too, but not enough to be unpleasant. I’m not detecting any of the apple that I got in the nose…it’s very dry and the mouthfeel is well carbonated. Very easy to drink and very smooth.

This is a really excellent American made Belgian Pale. Very affordable, lots of taste, fairly complex. It’s not blowing me away or anything, but this is just solid all around…really no complaints at all.
