(on bottle)Hate the label, but what a great example of strong ale. Humble, but right-on champagne and barn sent. A very alcoholic mouthfeel, along with great yeast esters. Somewhat stick, sugarish finish, and finally the malts kicks in. Very straight product.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A big, noise orangey brew with great head and excellent aromatic qualities. Incredibly light-bodied considering its powerful 10% abv punch. Certainly a smooth, tasty beer, but I’m not too crazy about the final finish -- do I sense a bit of pilsner in there? Fraid so, but you can’t take the craftsmanship out of this one no matter what. 12 is still my favorite Malheur, though.

Bottle from MJ’s Belgian beer of the month club, 2002. Pours a hazy pale orange with a massive, fluffy, meringue-like head. Aroma was great...rich complex orangey hops and apricots. Taste was sweet, but strikingly hoppy, peppery, and yeasty. The lingering bitter finish was typical of the Malheur ales I’ve had. I really like the ales this brewery puts out.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. A hazy blonde sedimented beer with barely any head. The aroma has spices wheaty lemon and yeasty alcohol. The taste has a bit more of the same. However the overriding feeling is one of disappointment as the taste is a bit flat and just dominated by the alcohol. It’s a bit like a strong tripel but without the balance of spiciness and alcohol.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
25 cl bottle, bbe 12th Oct 06. Light amber, moderately hazy (with the sediment poured in), somewhat sparkling, a small and not quite stable head. Sharp hoppy/herbal aroma with some metal and hints of yeast and perfume. Flavour of overbaked bread, alcohol and hops, with some rather peculiar sweetness. Wonderfully develops as it flows over the tongue, hitting its every part, yet in a gentle manner.
