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.

beeriodic (61) - Longmont, Colorado, USA - OCT 6, 2007
pours straw golden with a small white head. Sweet, fruity nose, with citrus and coriander notes. Spices and fruit flavors mask the alcohol very nicely. Feels nice and big on the tongue. And the aftertaste is a bit more sweet than dry, lingering a long time. Nice!

721Lance (60) - Oceanside Ca, California, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Spicy aroma of coriander. Real Belgian like with some citrus and lemon rind. The caramel candidate like character balances this one out greatly. Big carbonation and great spicy finish!

teorn88 (3489) - 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.

Melker (231) - Varberg, SWEDEN - FEB 24, 2015
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 (1217) - 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 (1863) - 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.
