Hello,

Wine was giving me headaches so I wanted to like beer but it was not happening until... a friend introduced me to Pranqster. Wow, this beer is awesome. Then I had a friend who barely drinks try it and she ordered her own, which is very unusual for her. Great job.

A strong fruit and wheat start. But the favors only get more complex as you drink more. Don't settle on a taste, get a pint.

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.
