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.

benpickens (385) - Camarillo, California, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Spicy saaz type hop aromas; creamy mouth texture with a dry palate. Reminds of Duvel but suprisingly, I give this one the edge over the latter.

daje (1858) - NORWAY - APR 7, 2014
Bottle shared with edvard, january 25th 2014. Unclear golden body, big white head. Aroma of fruity hops, belgian yeast, black pepper. Taste is yeasty with fruit, caramel and a light sourness, with a pleasant apricot finish. Doesn’t quite live up to my expectations of this one, but still a good beer.

floydian1 (825) - FNQ, Australia, - APR 7, 2014
750ml bottle. A bright golden beer with fluffy short lasting white head. Aroma has notes of malt grains, peppery spices, alcohol, candy sugar, fresh grass/leaves and faint traces of liquorice and coriander seeds. Flavour is bittersweet with a spicy/grassy dry hop finish and alcoholic burn. Palate is sticky and fullish bodied with a lively carbonation. A nice spiced Belgian-style ale. Hides the ABV well.

DougHnut70 (58) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 5, 2014
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 (1796) - 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 (902) - 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 (160) - 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.

Appearance: Clear amber with finger thick white head. Aroma: Floral, candy, dried fruit, bread/biscuit, musty, earthy, subtle marzipan and a hint of bubblegum. Taste: Medium sweet and sour with low/medium bitterness. Palate: Thick smooth texture, light/medium body, average carbonation, lingering dry, malty, peppery, spicy, fruity, marzipan finish with alcohol warmth. Comments: Very good and glass lace.

Balazs (750) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2014
Poured hazy, with an orange color and an off-white head. Coriander, orange peel in the nose. Aroma of fruits like apple, pear, bread, bubblegum, hints of spices. Good.
