PilsnerSensei38 (4) - Mallorca, SPAIN - FEB 27, 2017 does not count
Padova-Venice trip by train. This beer has got an incredible sweet malty and fruity taste, orange peel is there with some more spices. Alchool warm in the aftertaste.

10/XII/16 - 33cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent), shared with Erwin @ home - BB: n/a (2016-1460)

Slow gusher alert!
Little cloudy deep amber beer, small creamy yellowish head, pretty stable, non adhesive. Aroma: soft acidity, bit oxidized, dried fruits, banana, ripe fruits. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: very sweet start, sugary, some alcohol, pretty oxidized. Aftertaste: little bitter, honey, sugary, slightly sourish, bit spicy, alcohol, orange peel. This one has aged beautifully!

DuffMan (10048) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 30, 2017
Bottle, beer advent calendar. Hazy bright orange, thick white head. Orange and spices, quite sweet, but with a dry finish. ABV is well hidden. Pretty drinkable for what it is. Huh.

fiulijn (20218) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 8, 2017
Mooch tasting at Matts
Hazy golden color. Aroma of vegetables, sweet blond malt flavor, but no depth, it has a strong sugary flavor, even sugar floss, candies, high octane feeling.
Had some beer like this in the past, from van Steenberge and company, never liked them either.

AgentAle (1658) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 28, 2016
Aroma is plum, raisins, honey, and candy sugar. Taste is clove, tart, honey, citrus, caramel and butterscotch. Very similar to a barleywine. Appearance is a hazy orange with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

fiery_1 (787) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 27, 2016
330ml bottle @ Matts. Pours a slightly haze amber colour with no head. Nose hints of orange peel and coriander. Flavour is an upfront punch of hot. There is some slight orange character but mostly alcohol.

Ferris (14358) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 27, 2016
Bottle - Orange blossom and slick Perfumy notes. Clear orange with a small white head. Sweet orange syrup and candy like. Big and sweet.

mcberko (16597) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 27, 2016
330mL bottle, pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is very hot, with floral hops, orange peel and a hint of coriander. Flavour is pretty hot, with lots of floral hops, perfume, medium orange, and alcohol. Warming, but not too hot. Not overly cohesive by any means, but its certainly a fun beer.

Oakes (16949) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 27, 2016
Slight haze, amber. The aroma has a touch of orange but with the phenolic plasticy stuff that comes from a strong ale. Very sweet, very much with alcohol and phenols. These characteristics dominate - this was fermented too warm, and too long, so it comes out dry but without nuance. Banging in some orange peel and coriander at the end gives it orange peel and coriander character, but that is not a substitute for genuine character and complexity. And yet, it ends up not that awful; its a small bottle and I probably could finish it.
