COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

750ml poured into a tulip. Pours dark golden, very little white head that disappears. Smells of sweetness, dried tropical fruit, hint of spice and a weeny bit of typical Belgian funk. Tastes very sweet like candy but has that malt throughout, tastes more like a spice or orange peel than cilantro! Hides the 11% alcohol better than any beer I’ve tasted. At $16, if you want to buy a great bottle of Belgian for a celebration - try this one. Excellent.

Vignale (2064) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2014
Flaska från Brill. Drucken med ölföreningen. Ljus ale typ belgisk quad. Tvålig, kryddig och fruktig. Aprikoser (marmelad), äpplen, koriander, melon och syrentvålig. Väl dold alkohol. Annorlunda, välgjord, kompromisslös, elegant men lite svår att bli vän med.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Thanks for sharing, bro! Pours a cloudy straw color with a medium pillowy head. Aroma is Belgian yeast, funk, coriander, and light citrus hops. Taste is much the same. Very balanced and drinkable.

Stuedmaster (213) - Vista, California, USA - MAR 29, 2014
750 ml. bottle. Pours golden orange with a small white head that quickly clears and leaves no lacing. Nice aroma of sweet malt, citrus, slight banana, and spice. Flavor is very rich, medium sweet, medium sour, and pretty light bitterness. This is very easy to drink for 10% abv. Has a slight tart, acidic mouthfeel from the Belgian yeast. Medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation, and sweet/sour finish. This is very drinkable and smooth, I like it.

androman (397) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2014
75cl bottle @ home shared with Balazs and Sanyi. Hazy orange copper color, average white head. Aroma sour wineish smell, sweetish dry wine and gummy candy flavor. Taste medium sweetness, lightly bitter, medium sourness which is not bad. Full body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, sweetish finish. Too wineish for me.

Douberd (2299) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2014
750 ml bottle at home, into a tulip glass. ABV 11% Light gusher, overall score lowered. Deep orange colour on the body, with a big, fizzy and slight off-white head, that disappears immediately, leaving no trace that there was ever one on top of the beer. The body is mostly clear, with average activity in it. Aroma has lots of malts and booze, candy sugar, apricots, a touch of citrus appearing after a swirl of the glass. Taste is sweet, again lots of malts and sugar, little bit of yeast, apricots, honey, again a touch of citrus breaking just a tiny bit the overall sweetness, lots of alcohol. Medium body, fizzy carbonation, on the high side. Overall good, and despite its notable alcohol, very refreshing.
