Odd how I dislike most Alesmith beers yet enjoyed this one, while apparently the rest of the world sees things the other way around. Theres no other way to explain this: theres something wrong with the perceptions of the rest of the world.
I particularly enjoyed the smell of Horny Devil, which captures a pleasing barnyard essence offset by a slight whiff of ginger ale. Very classy. The body is clear autumn yellow with a few flocs, casual carbonation, and minimal head. The taste is golden rustic and traditional with very little evidence of the 11% ABV. A late surge of coriander compliments the finish though something in the end does manage to fall flat, perhaps as a result of poor cellaring. I would definitely seek this again.

This was deceptively strong.
It pours a clear golden color. There’s a light aroma with a bit of an estery aroma to it. I found it sweetly flavored with an orange blossom characteristic shining through. I had enjoyed it thoroughly, felt it afterwards!

On tap at the Blind Lady Alehouse on the 4th of July in San Diego.
Appearance: Excellent clarity in the amber body. Small but semi-durable white head. Head leaves some sticky streaks and spots on the glass.
Aroma: Sweet biscuits, yeast and faint tropical notes.
Flavor: Fruity, slightly tart, mildly bitter. Banana and clove evident, as is the higher ABV. Seemed to have a narrow tempeature range for optimal flavor and balance. Moderate complexity. Relatively good finish and aftertaste.
Feel: Light-medium body with medium+ carbonation. ABV mostly evident.
O: true Belgian style and quality.
Serving type: on-tap
