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.

750 ml bottle, post TAP NY tasting. Coriander, lemon-lime and orange in the nose. No head, hazy light amber. Rather syrupy and overly sweet, simple, no carbonation. Perhaps better with aging, but at this price and difficulty in getting...I don't care.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2004
Co-rated with the guys at Tap NY. This is a rotten way to be introduced to Alesmith. The best part was the aroma, which was spicy and sweet. This had a candi and corriander flavor that just doesn't mesh well and it doesn't drink too well.

JPDIPSO (5045) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 25, 2004
Lightly hazed honey color with a small off white head. Fruity and funky aroma. Nose of oranges and coriander, along with bubblegum and alcohol. Smooth feel. Lot of overripe fruit in the flavor, everything from bananas to strawberries. Light alcohol and malt towards the end. Some floral hops in the finish and actually quite dry in the end. This does seem to warm a person up after a few ounces. A noticably warmer belly and throat, near burning. I noticed the bottle now states the alcohol at 11%. A decent winter warmer/book reading brew.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2005 Re-rate, Feb 18th ’05. Amber pour. Lots of tiny bubbles and a smallish head. Very spicy nose, some fruity tones, alcohol. At first, malt sweetness and alcohol dominate, then a big slap of spices and yeasty tones, dry astringent finish. Medium body, tingly feel on the tongue, nice warming from the 11% alcohol. Wow... this reads just like the commercial description. I’m a cheater. Booo meee!

zathrus13 (1735) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - APR 23, 2004
UPDATED: APR 24, 2004 Pours a mixture of yellow and peach, somewhat cloudy, and no head. Taste is fruity, somewhat sweet, salty, and finishes a little bitter. Light carbonation, would be better with more.

Ernest (6699) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2006 Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow, unfiltered. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a strong note of coriander, notes of lemon/lime, candy sugar, and alcohol. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, soft/lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Time again to re-rate Alesmith stuff to see if things are improving, but alas...this is about as clumsy and simple as it gets. Kind of like carbonated sugar water with a big dose of coriander.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2004
Pours a cloudy golden yellow with lots of floaties. Large frothy head and a sweet fruity, perfumey aroma. Flavour is complex, sweet, slightly bitter, spicy, alcohol and a bit salty. Finish is dry and spicy.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 26, 2004
This brew pours iwth a cloudy, light orange body topped by a thin white head with a good amount of lacing. The aroms is slightly sweet, buttery, slightly spicy with a citrus note. The flavor is sweet, sugary and malty with a slight note of spices and salt. Medium bodied, surprisingly smooth and warming.

Good... Hazy golden cloudy lots of sediment, thin persistant white head with slippery lacing. The nose is sweet with citrus and yeast. THe taste is salty kind of sweet but mostly salty, unique, sweet. The body is cool and crisp.

DCopperfields (146) - New York, USA - MAR 22, 2004
a cloudy, murky yellow liquid with ample white head. Funky, horsy aroma, reminiscent of the lambic styles of Belgium. Mouth was a bit thin, and while not as complex in the flavor as many competing Belgian styles, this was perhaps more drinkable. Interesting brew, give it a go, but don't plan on a session.
