3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light orange-golden coloured beer with a goog head. Could holds a bit longer maybe, but sticky to the glass. Yeast and hops at the smell, also at the taste, but there comes some sweet-dryness trough then. The smell is a bit better outbalanced then the taste, but drinkeable I think.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
I’ll be honest, this is one of the worst beers I’ve had in a long long time. I’ve had cheap supermarket beers that were Westvleterens compared to this. Smeer means grease and I get why they chose that name. The first part of the sip is sort of ok with some spices but the weird sweetness leaves an overwhelming amount of sorrow. Bottle at Glimburger in Maastricht.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium, quite dense off-white head, fed by lively carbonated copper-golden beer. Roasted, smoked bacon rind, even hot metalslags, nearly chemical upon opening; going over in spicy vegetable esteraromas. Very toasted flavour, quite sharp; with again this fried bacon streak. Different enough from Bink blond, IMO. Sharpish MF, spritzy carbonation, medium bodied at best. Special enough, and original. Just a bit aggressively toasted.
