look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured a nice golden color with a one finger, fluffy white head. Quite nice. Scents of fruit, apricot and peach mostly, with some slight citrus and pear alongside candi sugar and faint hints of Belgian yeast. Very appealing, a good Belgian golden aroma, though not the most complex. Flavor begins with apricot and peach, moves into spicy Belgian yeast and finishes with yeasts spiciness and some graininess. Aftertaste is grainy. Faint, fruity tang as it warms. Again, a good, basic Belgian ale flavor, but not as complex as some. Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium-high carbonation and a watery feel. Quite easy to drink, but very light compared to most Belgian Golden Ales. Overall a good, easy drinking, light take on a Belgian. It's not as rich, complex or deep as some, but it is a good warmer weather Belgian style beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

12 ounce draft pour into a tulip. 5.5% ABV.
Appearance: Shiny golden amber. Brilliant, with a thin cap of foam (4.5/5).
Aroma: Clean, fresh, noble hop aroma, along with sweet apples (4/5).
Taste: This is a beautiful, delicate, beer. The hops are the predominate flavor, but it’s certainly not bitter. I also get a bit of pilsner malt and spiced cider (4.25/5).
Mouthfeel: Medium body, medium carbonation (4.25/5).
Overall: This beer is a wonderful example of the style; fresh, bright, and alive. I respect AleSmith for leaving this draft-only, because it would quickly die in a bottle (4.25/5).

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

on tap at whole foods. 4$ happy hour. poured into a nb 0.47L glass.

appearance: bright orange with not much head or retention.

smell: zested orange and slight grapefruit. with a nice yeast undertone.

taste: follows the nose well with a good taste of watery oranges picked from your own tree. and again a smidge of yeast underlying

mouthfeel: a bit wet but nice carbonation inviting me to take another drink.
with a refreshing dry finish, superb.

overall: would love this by the pool or mowing the lawn, very refreshing.
I haven't had its bigger brother horny devil yet but plan on it. lil devil was described to me as half of horny devil.

on tap only as far as I know. so worth a try if you come across it.
