COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Horny Devil is our interpretation of a Belgian-style Golden Ale. Brewed with authentic Belgian ingredients including candi sugar and a Trappist yeast strain, its fruity and spicy aromas include notes of orange, banana, and peppercorns. Coriander seeds add refreshing citrus notes which meld seamlessly with the beer’s delicate malt. Horny Devil finishes with a lively carbonation and a refreshingly dry finish.

This is the AleSmith incarnation of a Belgian Strong Ale. Horny Devil is an authentic Belgian Style ale, from the Belgian candi sugar right down to the yeast, a Belgian strain from a Trappist monastery in Belgium. In addition to the malts, candi sugar and fresh hops, there is also a little added twist from coriander seeds, which impart a refreshing citrus flavor to an outstanding ale. Belgian ale lovers around the world have raved about Horny Devil, and you will too.

teorn88 (3551) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2015
Keg at BD Shoreditch, London. It pours a slightly unclear golden color with a large white head that sticks around. Aroma is sweet and estery, with bug banana and biscuit notes, some caramel and toffee. Taste is medium sweet and lightly crispy and citrusy in the finish. Light booze. Notes of honey, apples, banana, bread and bubble-gum. Medium to full bodied with good carbonation. Overall, ok Belgian ale

Tap at brewery. Pours extremely clear yellow with creamy white head. Aroma is cereal malts, alcohol spice, belgian yeast notes, citrus, and some floral notes. Flavor is rich and malty with tons of yeast esters, spice, and smooth hop character with a boozy finish. Medium/full body and medium carbonation.

Very easy to drink. Refreshing and sweet. Not my style at all but I liked it a lot, not that much banana and peppers that I find in pale belgian beers.

angel77 (1256) - oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 1, 2015
Botella de 75 cl en el momento en el lúpulo el 24-01-2015. color amarillento pajizo con poca espuma blanca. Aromas en frío ligeramente afrutados melocotón y piña en almíbar, dulces y maltosos con toques herbáceos especiados. Sabores maltosos, dulces, algo tostados y afrutados con toques especiados suaves de coriandra. Cuerpo medio con 11 vol que le dan buena sensación alcohólica, sobretodo al coger temperatura. Bastante buena, para repetir.

JMerritt (1867) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2015
Bottled. Pours an effervescent tangerine yellow with a grand, frothy and staying white head. Belgian yeast is prevalent in the aroma, slight black pepper, cantaloupe, vanilla cookies, lemon peel. Malts and tropical fruits become much more pronounced as it warms. Moderately sweet flavor with a slightly sour undertone - overripe cantaloupe, dried straw, lightly toasted rye rounding it out. Rather dry finish with lingering yeastiness and a final banana sendoff. Very nice.

Keg at Brewdog Leeds. Pours clear pale gold, thin white head. Light bad and spice aromas, lagery. Taste is hot and boozy, more spice. Clean finish, light body. Not Belgian enough!

2012 Vintage (750ml) from Brewdog’s Online Shop:
Another brilliant beer from AleSmith, the quality really shows through with this one and it is remarkably easy to drink despite the fact it comes in at 11% abv. and is packed with flavour. It’s more fruity than I was expecting but the balance is great and the carbonation is perfect, helping the beer down far too easily for the strength of the beer. Simply put, this one is a must try for any beer fan and one that was well worth the very expensive price tag - definitely a beer that has aged well since I picked it up a couple of years ago.

Bottle at rickfifty’s. Banana, pineapple, spice, belgian yeast, vanilla, some pepper, ester nose. Quite sweet. Candi sugar, esters, banana, pineapple, dried coriander, some vanilla and pepper. A bit too sweet. Medium body. Medium and stingy carbonation. Very good.
