Pranqster has a smooth, subtly fruity taste that dissipates pretty quickly. It looks and feels like a nice Belgian ale should, and it isn't really lacking any one thing, but it doesn't hit you in the face with how good it is—it's a beer I'd drink more than once, but not one I'd gush over to friends.

This was a great tasting Belgian strong ale. It had everything you want in a Belgian plus amazing rich flavor and a super smooth finish.

Lacks the complexity of some Belgian Strong Pales. A delicious ale at a very reasonable price point.

I tried Sierra Nev Heff after seeing all the great reviews...hated it. Same with this. I was blown away with their Scrimshaw Pils and decided to try the brewery's highest rated...it tastes EXACTLY like the S.N. Heff!!! Is this the "Taste" everyone looks for??? Don't get it....
