Picked this up on a scorcher of day. Mira Mesa is fricken hot. Luckily the warehouse was a reprieve from the heat and there is beer!

A- Pours a clear golden yellow. Some brief appearance of a thin white head. I am not sure if this is typical or if it is because this was the last of it before it blew. Peter knocked off $5, that's cool.

S- Sweet candied sugar, light banana, slight yeasty phenol aroma.

T- Very sweet banana, and candied sugar. Light cloviness, with that hint of phenol again. There is some rich butteriness to itDefinetly get some heat on the end.

M- A little thick on the tongue, minimal carbonation. Definite etoh warmth.

D- I do enjoy this beer. I do not think that the end of the keg is the best representative. I will probably re-rate this down the road, but until then...

Rich deep golden color with fantastic clarity. A quarter inch thick white head rests on top with a bit of Brussels lacing. Fantastic aroma of coriander, pears, pale malt, and Belgian Strong Ale yeast greets my nose. The mouth is moderately carbonated and fairly dry. I get pale malt and Belgian Strong Ale yeast on the front of the palate and then an appropriate burst of coriander in the follow through. It's so easy to do overkill on the aroma and flavor of coriander, but they nailed it on this one.

In review is a 2011 Vintage.

A - Pours crystal clear medium bright gold color with tones of cascading bubbles and a one fingered creamy, white frothy head that sticks on top without dying down.

S - Very dry and musty, fruity lemon, spicy, crackery aroma.

T - Very, very tart on the first several sips until the palate starts to adjust and then starts to subside. Nice lemon and coriander spiciness, pears, white grapes, and crackery dry malt. There is alcohol effervescence on the back end but never to the point where it creates heat on the way down.

M - Heavy medium body and very gentle carbonation, very dry on the finish.

O - A very solid beer, would love to compare this one to a more recent bottling date.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a golden amber with a fair amount of fizzy white head. This dissipates quickly to just a ring around the glass, leaving reasonable lacing.

S: Honey, cloves, and spices, with a slight phenolic note.

T: Medium intensity mouth coating sweetness, with yeasty spicy grainy overtones. The yeast comes forward through the finish. The booze is hinted at, but hidden.

M: Medium body, but coats the mouth. Medium carbonation.

Overall, very very good. Nice balance, and while there are hints that this is as boozy as it is, they are well hidden; dangerously drinkable.

look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

eyes...
loud sizzle on this puppy, the head vaporizes in a flash, bright and golden glowing, lots of disorganized carbonation is running clumsily around the glass, a thin layer of foam sticks around due to the furious pace of carbonation, decent enough looking

nose...
dry and musty with very light hints of tropical fruit, kind of reminds me of chardonnay or something of that ilk, nothing over whelming and nothing off putting

taste etc...
alot of belgian style ales go a little much into the spice flavor for me, not here, really super smooth, and where o where are you hiding the ABV? I feel it but damn it is no where in the flavor, you get just a hint of the coriander in the finish which balances nicely with a slight bitterness and ever so slight candy sugar tone, in a way this is a very subdued beer... but I really like it for that. in terms of mouth feel it drinks super smooth, the carbonation is subtle (and from looks you might have been expecting a mess in that department)

verdict?
I don't often drink belgian style ales... but when I do...
but then again I am about the least interesting man...
this stuff is super solid, it drinks ultra slick and watch out for that ABV. a damn well rounded beer.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Fast gusher upon opening. Pours moderately cloudy golden amber color with a 2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass, with plenty of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, grape, coriander, clove, pepper, herbal, floral, grass, candi sugar, cracker, bread, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, spice, and malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, pear, apple, grape, orange peel, coriander, clove, pepper, herbal, floral, grass, candi sugar, cracker, bread, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, grape, orange peel, coriander, clove, pepper, herbal, floral, grass, candi sugar, cracker, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity and balance of yeast, spice, and malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a lightly slick, smooth, and moderately crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Belgian strong pale ale. All around great balance and complexity of yeast, spice, and malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

A - Light golden body with a thin cap of bone white film topping it off. Body is very clear, only a shade or two left of transparent.

S - Coriander is very forward and dominant, with Belgian yeast aromas in the background.

T - Coriander isn't as forward as it was in the aroma, but its there. Alcohol is noticeable but not in an off putting sense - Had I not known the ABV I would have guessed maybe something like 7-8%. Grassy and floral notes accompany some fruity esters on the finish

M - A bit dry, and not at all cloying in any sense which was a concern given the gravity.

O - I'm a fan of this one.

my bottle says 10% abv, but nevermind that. this has a shockingly pale look for what I am told is really a barleywine. its hazy blonde, with a short frothy white head and a nose of heavy coriander, both fresh and seed, as well as bright Belgian yeast above a wheat malt base accentuated by candy sugar. it tastes almost like a tripel, sweet and bright, floral and yeasty, just right. the booze is absurdly well hidden, the carbonation is awesome, and the overall experience of this beer is great. my take away is, "how the hell can this be so strong!" it taste so minimalist, but packs a big punch. a subtly complex beer, and a very enjoyable one. more summer than fall, but it ages well, and is drinking lovely at the moment. alesmith really has it all happening right now!

Clear gold with a one finger white head from a gentle pour. the head has nice retention and spotty lacing. Very sweet aroma with peaches, pears, coriander, and Belgian yeast.

Has a sweet flavor with peaches, pears, oranges, coriander, pale malts, and Belgian yeast. There is some bitterness for balance provided by the citrusy hops. A nice sweet flavor, which is not overly sweet.

Medium to full bodied with plenty of carbonation. The alcohol is very well hidden for an 11 % abv beer. Another outstanding AleSmith beer. UI will need to pick some more of this up when I am in Hudson.

A: Wow, this thing is pretty! Beautiful light and golden hue. Good amount of carbonation.

S: You get the spices for sure. Orange peel, coriander, etc. Maybe even some lemon grass?

T: Very clean and refreshing. Get the spices and maybe some light fruits. Very smooth finish. a pretty weak hop platform. Honestly, it's pretty sessionable It's amazing to think that this is 10% ABV.

M: Almost perfect!

O: I think this is the best beer I've had from AleSmith. It's a little on the pricey side, but it's well worth the money. If you're into Belgian-style ales, this is something you have to try.

750 ml bottle. Pours clear straw gold with a fizzy creamy white head that quickly goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is wheaty cereal malts with coriander and soapy, floral spices and some soft fruit and earthy belgian yeast.

The flavor is sweet wheaty malts and spice (coriander and chamomile), some earthiness and a medium bitter alcohol finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with creamy carbonation.

Overall, sweet with a lot of spice (coriander, floral, chamomile) and a bit of alcohol.

Served in a tumbler.

I would do the obvious and make some sort of horny joke, but I just don't feel like it tonight, guys. Sorry. Regardless, this stuff pours a clear golden-brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises mild white bread, plenty of Belgian yeast, clove, a pinch of black pepper,. and a tiny bit of cracked wheat. The taste brings in more of the same, but with a healthy dose of oaked chardonnay grapes. This bit o'ertakes much of the remainder, killing some of the Belgian-y exuberance, especially due to its clashing with the yeast and the bread. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and an airily drying finish. Overall, this stuff just didn't do it for me. The strong yeast just didn't jive with the strange chardonnay flavor, and there was just too much bread thropughout as well.

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

Few brewers are able to capture the traditional and authentic taste of Belgium like Alesmith does with Horny Devil. Its light, effervescent, powerful and chocked full of subtle complexities.

Upon the pour, the ale springs to life as large bubbles of froth race to the rim of the tulip and nearly overtakes it. As it continues to billow, it pulls away from the medium haze and golden straw body underneath. Incredibly strong retention and intricate lacing patterns reinforce the notion of Bruges right from the beginning.

Fruit and perfume waft about the nose and does so with a backbone of light wheat and champagne. Lightly earthy from hops and with a light pungent cork-like musty scent, the aromas are bold and graceful. Green apples, under-ripened oranges and a hint of spiced pear weave in and out of a dry white wine note just as coriander, white pepper and a hint of paradise seed tingles the nose, heading into that first sip.

Its taste springs to life with fruit and earth. As the dry taste of sparkling white wine bring about obvious white grape character, its also lightly cider, perry-like and decorated with dried orange peels. Lemon-like acidity fuels its dry fruit taste as the ale builds in a mild lemongrass hop character. Its buffer of light cookie dough, dry crackers and whole wheat lifts beautifully from the taste and allows the ale to close cleanly. Its spiciness of coriander and peppercorn play delicately on the late palate as one final champagne note trails in its finish.

Light on the palate, the ale is zesty as its carbonation springs from the tongue and as the acidity pangs on the mouth. It carries an arid feel that dries out beautifully in the finish with a crisp, minerally taste seemingly of plaster. Its dry warmth keeps the taste and texture returning to champagne.

Again, the ale is chocked full of understated complexity and finesse. Its balance and layering is easily overlooked, but are the details that give Horny Devil an authentic and genuine character.

750 ml capped bottle poured into a Bruery tulip
10% ABV, bottled 07/09/13 on neck

A - Shimmering with vibrant clarity, this bright golden beer forms an effervescent white head which slowly dissipates to a thin skim of tight bubbles below an arch of white lace.

S - AleSmith's addition of coriander to this beer explodes out with force, keeping balanced and complimentary with the beer's classic yeast esters of clay and white pepper. Sweetness lingers throughout but never becomes cloying as this dry, champagne-like beer draws one in with sinister deception.

T - Sweet crystal candi sugar and pilsner malts lay a smooth foundation for Belgian yeast esters that closely reflect the aroma; a dash of white pepper and earthy clay. The yeast includes delicate suggestions of white grape and banana, which make a brief appearance before the healthy addition of coriander finishes out.

M - Carbonation dances on the tongue with Champagne-like effervescence, carrying the medium-light bodied beer through a sweet and soft feel to a dry and dangerously drinkable finish.

O - While many American brewers struggle to replicate Belgian style beers without coming off as an American counterpart, AleSmith's Horny Devil passes as the real deal, nailing not only the style but the use of a classic, hard-to-master yeast.

Crystal clear golden colour. Small white head. Poor head retention.

Massive coriander. A little sweet. Interesting. I don't get a lot of fruit here. This is just spice and touches of sugar.

There is a fair bit of sweetness here followed up by a walloping dose of coriander seed. Light touches of alcohol and even a little tartness. Good.

Medium body with moderately-low carbonation. A bit more fizz would be nice.

A solid Belgian ale but it lacks a little fruitiness and dryness that would pep it up.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Duvel tulip glass. Bottled on 07/03/13.

Appearance: Pours a bright and clear straw golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About fingers of white head that slowly fade into a thin patchy layer. Leaves a good amount of lacing around the glass.

Smell: A yeasty and zesty fruit driven Belgian aroma. Belgian yeast upfront with hints of funk, clove, peppers, and some sweet candied sugar. Good hints of coriander spicing. Fruit esters of banana, pear, apple, and white grape along with citrus fruit hints of orange, pineapple, lemon zest, apricot, and slight mango. Pale malt with hints of grains, crackers, and biscuit. Slight honey like sweetness as well. Light hints of earthy and floral hops. A very good Belgian style aroma.

Taste: As zesty and good as the aroma, a big taste of fruit notes and spicy yeast. Upfront Belgian yeast with some funk and notes of clove, peppers, and a good dose of coriander spicing. Sweet Belgian candied sugar. Lots of fruit esters with notes of bananas, white grape, pear, apple, and citrus notes of orange, lemon zest, pineapple, mango, and apricot. Slight note of honey. Bready pale malt with notes of grains, biscuit, crackers, and slight caramel. Nicely earthy with some subtle hops in the background. A little taste of the alcohol. Very good.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a medium to high level of carbonation. Spicy, juicy, and fairly prickly. Pretty smooth and the alcohol heat is pretty mild.

Overall: A very good take on a Strong Belgian Pale Ale. Very good spice and fruit flavors. Pretty smooth for its size and ABV.

Poured from a 750 into a shaker pint, the beer is a pale, hazy, yellow-gold coloring with a slow, steady flow of carbonation and a thin, sparse coat of white head. Nose of tart and sweet tropical fruit, including pineapple, mango, and a citrus blend. Spices of coriander, nutmeg, and cinnamon blend nicely with all the fruity characteristics, with hints of Belgian funk and booze highlights. Flavors of booze forward, with a heavy dose of banana sweet and subtle spice blend to follow. Clove and coriander give the beer a touch of balance, and there is an overall warmth that builds as you drink from the ABV. This one's a heavy hitter. The aftertaste is tangy sweet from all the fruit character, with that warmth still kicking around your mouth. Smooth bodied, and kept light by the carbonation. The finish is smooth and clean, with a hint of spice linger. Very good, very heavy beer.

Pours a clear, pale straw with about a finger of eggshell head, which quickly disspates to some cirrus swirls and a collar of lacey foam.

The nose is dark and complex, with a blend of spices, coriander and dark fruit. There's a soft malt amidst a Chimay-like metallic tang and clove, fig, and musk.

The taste is surprisingly light and crisp, but otherwise as the nose suggests. There's a lingering heat in the taste and aftertaste. The heat is very stong, and almost fusel-like, but it's not overpowering or unpleasant. Candi sugar, toffee, clove, pennies, pears, plum, clove honey, and apricot are all present.

The flavor is sweet, tangy, and bitter, but spice dominates. It's very drinkable, especially considering the high ABV.

No date that I can see, couple months old.

A: Pours a clear golden amberish color. Large, very effervescent and fizzy offwhite head. Head fizzes away pretty quickly, leaving only moderate lacing behind. Good retention, however.

S: Very nice fruity aroma. Citrusy with banana and hints of melon. Some cloves and spices. Very sweet.

T: Lots of sweet citrus up front with grapes. Like a candied fruit flavor. Sharp cloves in the middle with some indistinct spices. A bit of sharp, fruity alcohol in the finish and in the lingering aftertaste.

M: Surprisingly not that heavy for 11%. Higher carbonation lightens it up I think.

O: Big, big sweet BSPA. Heavy on the sweet fruits. Belgian yeast character leaves a little to be desired, this is definitely a very "american" style BSPA. Which honestly, I typically prefer. If you're looking for something a little more authentic a Duvel is probably more your speed.

75 cl. bottle split with several people. The bottle most likely had quite some ago on it we couldn’t determine how old it was.
Age should not be an issue for a Belgian Strong Pale Ale.

Appearance: Hazy golden with a thick white head.

Smell: Huge old grapefruit, touch old BE yeast, touch blaster, vintage notes are showing clearly, revealing quite some age.

Taste: Old Belgian yeast, thick spices, cheese, light caramel, thick old plaster, some sugar, noticeable oxidation, light candy sugar and degraded malts.

Body: Ridiculously over-carbonated.

Overall: About as good as any mediocre Belgian beer that has been aged for far too long. This cannot have been possibly older than 2 years and probably that is already an overestimation. Below run-of-the-mill for a premium price makes this beer seem almost like a bad joke.

Serving Type - 25.4 oz bottle

Appearance - Light golden tan with a grape juice like green tint. Foamy 1 inch head and tons of lacing.

Smell - Floral, grapes, cherry, candy sugars, light floral hops, almost saision like pepper notes. Some orange and coriander, lemon and a herbal aroma at the finish.

Taste - At first sip, vey floral with loads of yeasty sugars, spices , oranges, lemon peel, and coriander. A hybrid of a wheat ale, a triple and strong ale. Loads of floral/saison notes. Hops are mild , and tropical, not bitter. Some banana mixed in with some malts comes out moreso near the finish. Alcohol is present but not overly present.

Mouthfeel - Sweet yeasts and spices coat the tongue. Palate gets more yeasts, along with some hops, malts and a little booze. The aftertaste is floral/herbal and orange flavored.

Overall - Really nice beer, lots of flavor and really smooth. This bottle might have a little age on it cause the alcohol is really mild and the hops are very light. Has great balance, easy to drink and enjoy.

750 mL pours a mostly clear, light gold color with an ample white head...somewhat fizzy and does not leave much lace.

Nose is tropical alcohol, fruit cocktail syrup and coriander. Interesting...almost a 'grand cru' type of aroma.

Taste is light and fruity, the yeast does some interesting stuff. Thats a good thing with the neutral malt and modest hops.

Coriander is interesting without the usual accompanying orange peel. ABV is pretty evident and the malt is so light. Yeast, fruit and alcohol driven. It is pretty smooth despite all that though and the grassy hops lend a deft touch of bitterness. Pretty good, gets better as it warms. Id drink this again fo sho.
