4.03/5  rDev 0%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pranqster presents a beautiful golden color, but is seriously lacking in the carbonation department. No head, and little in the way of lacing.

S: Honey and tropical fruit meld together to form an intriguing bouquet.

T: As promised by the nose, this brew is full of honey, melon, and spice. The esters aren't overbearing, and it is perfectly attenuated, something other brewers (I'm talking to you Ommegang) could learn from.

M: Light body, and slightly sticky, but no carbonation to wash it away.

D: This is a good attempt to recreate a Belgian classic. While it falls short of the real thing in a few places, it is still a superb beer that deserves mention.
