look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
A - Orange\yellow pour with a lively white foam that stays for a while. Laces rings on a tulip glass and has visible carbonation moving about.
S - Nice smell of berries and and fresh cut flowers. Has a little of the bubblegum smell common with belgian yeast.
T - Really enjoayable beer. Has plenty of sweet flavors and tastes of syrupy fruit cocktail, light grains, and fruit juices. Over time I found it to bring out more flavors of fresh bread.
M - This was extremely friendly to the palate, went great with food, and was light enough to have more then one. Masks the modest ABV very well.
O - wierd I never got around to this unitl now. Can hold its own with the more popular Belgian imports of this style. And its better on the price by me.

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.
