Crafted by North Coast Brewing Co., Pranqster is a Belgian style Golden Ale.

The smell of Belgian yeast and pear is noted. Floral scents are noticed as well. The malty body gravitates the golden ale characteristic.

The flavor of the Belgian yeast dominates the beer. Pear is a nice compliment to the yeast. Green apple is light, and waters and sweetens the drink. Banana gives the beverage some weight and complexion to the body.

Clove provides a pleasing spice to the beer. A faint bitterness is felt in the finish. Each giving the yeast a different experience every time you drink.

Pranqster is an incredible Belgian style Golden Ale. The pear and green apple draws out the golden Ale flavor. The yeast is rich and creamy. North Coast Brewing Co. outdid themselves. Stylized so well to the exemplary Belgian standard, the beer speaks for itself.

Cheers. Prost. Drink for the love of beer.

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.

I poured this beer out of a 12 ounce bottle into a conical mug

The beer is straw yellow with a beautiful white perfectly foamy head

Floral and herbal scents Some grass

Vanilla tropical fruit and even some angel food cake flavors

Light and well carbonated

This is an excellent beer. Is highly drinkable and very pillow soft of a mouth feel
Absolutely delicious I would drink this again
