Golden yellow with a fizzy head, very carbonated.
The smell and taste are hazed in this musky, semi-bitter, semi-spicy cloud that makes it odd... especially on the exhale.
It seems a little too young? Maybe this would be a good beer to cellar for a year or two, let those flavors meld up a bit. Right now I'm not getting any real cohesion from the drink.
While I'm not sure if I'd get it again, I'm glad to have tried it.

This was a hazy pale golden color, it came with a nice frothy head. Nice nose consisting of soft fruits like pears and apricots plus light spice and bubblegum.
Sweet tasting overall, more fruity than sugary. Mild clove and some other spice at the finish. This has a nice feel. Good stuff.

12oz bottle poured into an Allagash tulip. Yeast roused and poured.
A: Golden-orange color. Very hazy with some yeasty silt in suspension. Fine-bubbled white head holds on at a half inch in height. A thin sheet of delicate lacing eventually slides down the glass, forming rings in its wake.
S: Very floral. Esters of star fruit and pithy orange. Chalky yeast, slightly musty. Light minerality. Browned biscuits and wheat. Zesty little wheat snap. Faint alcohol and medicinal phenol.
T: Pithy orange and lemon, star fruit. Floral hops. Chalky and musty yeast. Toasted biscuit and some creamy wheat. Coriander? Very faint alcohol. Medicinal phenols are tame. Dry finish of yeast, biscuit, faint phenol and pithy hop bitterness.
M: Medium bodied with a sense of weight. Wheat adds a frothy and creamy feel. Lightly scrubbing carbonation still allows the beer to press down on the tongue.
O: The curveball here is all the wheat character. It's not expected, as when you're drinking a Belgian Golden, you tend to look to Duvel for comparison. It really works though. While Duvel is all about clean pilsner malt character and great balance, Pranqster achieves a similar balance, albeit with a wheaty approach and perhaps a bit more complexity because of it. Yeast, malt (and wheat adjunct), and hops all work very harmoniously together, and this ends up being far too easy to finish.
