Although named "Pranqster" this brew isn't joking around. One of the best Belgian's I've had.

A very smooth taste with a sweet/sour finish. A great beer to start the night off with. An ABV of 7.6% two of these will have your ready for any occasion.

Very light fruity taste that still delivers a punch. Smell of apricot, grape and lemon. It has a fair amount of carbonation and many floral attributes.

North Coast does it again!

7.6 % abv...taste some bitter hopps at the very front of the mouth at first taste..it then becomes very smooth in the middle and leaves a sweet taste of Belgian yeast at the back of the mouth ...not overly hoppy so it is a good way to get untrained taste buds to start getting acclimated
