Bold, spicy, menacingly delicious HopDevil takes on an entirely new dimension when subjected to a wild yeast fermentation. A sharp, sourish edge has been added by this fermentations that plays into the caramel sweet malt deliciously and creates complex interplay with citrus accented hops.

The worst of the prior reviews about sums this up for me. Aroma reminded me of an unattended-to menís room. Iíve never quaffed a glass of urine, but the aroma gave me the impression I was doing just that. A huge disappointment since I love this breweryís Hop Devil. I paid $8 for a bomber and threw out most of it. The caveat is that this is the first Belgian I have tried in about 20 years, and perhaps this is what they are like and they just donít get along with me.

750ml bottle, shared by somebody after Jackie-Oís 8th Anniversary. Hazy orange-red color. Pours with a big, soft airy head. Couple dots of lace. Smooth, soft lighter carbonation. Nice dry finish. Moderate sweet taste. Light alcohol dryness. Dark fruit, raisin, chocolate, some fudge. Solid, big, rich lightly tart wild ale.

2009 vintage. Not good. Something has went seriously wrong here. No sourness at all. Wet cardboard, dirty hay, barnyard grossness. The only real flavors i get is old earthy hops and dirty wheat. Meh.

Bottle shared with friends. If this was a mistake then it was a brilliant mistake. Good sour tartness happening here. Slightly fruity and easily drinkable, even for a new sour head.

Atheist_Peace (884) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2013
750ml bottle. Dated April 22, 2009. Cloudy dark amber/orange with lots of head that takes a while to die down. Nose of burnt caramel, stale hops, a hint of wood, licorice, mint, faint acetic notes. Disjointed on the palate. Malty punch up front with a bit of sourness. Seriously lacking complexity. Some vegetal hop character with an astringent finish. Pass.

rbrazell (1452) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Draft at Proof. Slightly hazy, golden pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma of funky yeast, lemons, citrus hops, and hints of sweetness. Flavor of funk, yeast spice and hoppiness. Dry tart ending.

jbruner (1983) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2013
On tap at Proof. Pours a clear golden yellow with thin white head and light lacing. Aroma of funky Belgian yeast and fresh citrusy hops. Taste follows, a hint of peppery spice. Solid, one of the best things Iíve had from victory.

A decent ale but really over priced. Similar to a tripel. Wouldn't get it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Orange clear pour from a bomber. Tons of head. Spicy and tasty. This was under IIPA but definatly more tripel. Decent.

tricyclist (536) - Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2012
2008 bottle. Tulip pour of hazed amber yellow with two full finger head. Nose is malty, barely sour, quite spicy... Flavor is bleak, not sour... More like a lightly sour hefeweizen... Not pleasant. Bananas, clove, coriander... Not for me at all, not after I heard how sour it was
