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 beerís delicate malt. Horny Devil finishes with a lively carbonation and a refreshingly dry finish.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 24, 2005
Deep orange-gold color with a light head. Aroma of fruit and spice with orange, banana, coriander, and pepper. Well-balanced Belgian yeast characteristics and a bit of sweetness donít overwhelm the complex flavors. Thick mouthfeel with strong, warm alcohol notes and a smooth, dry finish is remarkable. Quite a different sort of Belgian strong ale.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2005
Deep banana color body with ultra-fine particles and a lacy, soft cottony head. Nice spicy nose of pepper and mild lime plus light bubble gum. Nutty malt character in the flavor with pleasant esters, light clove-like phenols, and medium sweetness. Good balance. Delicate, pleasant, and good overall.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - SEP 21, 2005
Bottle, pre-Rita festivies. Pours a blurry, watery orange. Aroma is apple and a dash of coriander. Flavor is apple, orange, coriander, raisin, and a dash of bread. Lots of flavors swirling around, but they all come together in the finish. Palate is slippery and enticing. Great beer; another winner from AleSmith.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - SEP 12, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2005 750ml - bought from brewery 05/05 - Aroma is sticky yeast, coriander, alcohol, and candi sugar. Pours a cloudy orange with cascading bubbles, a small head, and great lacing. Flavor is a bit off but still good. Sweet and bitter, coriander, candi sugar, alcohol, and a bit more malt and citrus than the aroma. Palate is dry and crisp. Nice.

Pours a cloudy orange color with a thin head and decent amount of lacing. The aroma is rich with spices, fruits and a slight candy like sweetness. The flavor is definitely a tongue twister as it takes on many different flavors through-out the beer, including sugary and malty with some spice (maybe clove or corriander) and then ending nice and dry. Yet another reason I love living in San Diego

It danced as it poured into the glass. Golden clear color, great lacing. Taste like almond syrup, lovely...

Pailhead (5747) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2005
Bottle: Courtesy of aofoxxy. Aroma is sweet and fruity with orange, peach, and some light caramel. Pours a hazy dull orange with a white head. Lots of orange from start to finish with a touch of orange peel. Some candy sugar sweetness and some hints of peach. Light spiciness in the finish. Light bitterness in the finish. Very nice, but Iím not a peach fan, so that slightly detracts from the beer.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2005
Quality control problems? Or is my bottle too young? Pours cloudy gold with no head, not even lace. Dead in the mouth. Simple flavor of alcohol, butterscotch, the the cloying bubblegum of a barleywine. Iíve been waiting to find this for a long time, and when I did I ended up pouring it out. Nothing about it reminded me of a Belgian. I could not find the coriander under the sweetness and the alcohol. My bottle says 11%, not the 10% shown on the ratebeer website, and i would have believed 12%; without more hops and more carbonation this tastes like a sweet drink for college kids, like a hard lemonade. I would have called it a bad barleywine in a blind tasting. I have another several bottles of different Ale Smith bbers; I hope their not as disappointing!

(750ml bottle) Pours a moderately hazy orange body with a small white head. Aroma of apple, alcohol, and butterscotch. Flavor of spicy yeast, corriander, and sugar. Had somewhat similar qualities of a Bush Presitige, but not quite the quality.
