North Coast Pranqster - 7.6% ABV Belgian Strong Pale Ale - Consumed October 31, 2014.
A: Golden amber hue with one finger of bright white froth and active carbonation in the body. Very clear appearance with some strands of lacing on the tulip glass. Head subsides to a thin ring about halfway through. Solid looking beer.
S: Bartlett pear, white grape, fruity yeast esters, light phenols, ripe banana, alcohol, red plum, champagne-like notes, and floral hops. A clean, complex and inviting nose.
T: Pear, yeast, wheat malt, alcohol, white grape, honey, candied banana, hint of peach with a spicy, off-dry finish and some warmth going down. Tasty stuff.
M: Fuller than medium-bodied, smooth and creamy middle, spicy-prickly hop bite transitions to a quick and mildly drying finish with some heat in the throat. A very good palate.
O: A lovely BSPA that hits most of the right notes. Floral, semi-sweet and fruity; this one's worth a try.

Easy drinking, not bad, almost sour but refreshing, strong feel it after a few drinks
