UPDATED: SEP 10, 2007 (Bottle) Pours a clear golden body with heavy protein particles and a small off-white head. Aroma of fruitiness, florals, and candish. Flavor of fruit (somewhat funky), light dustiness, and candish with a dry finish.

hopscotch (10522) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2006
Bottle... Murky golden ale with a small, frothy, white head. Tons of floaters tooling around within the brew. Good retention. Very fruity, breadsy nose with lots of fruitcake wafting from the glass. The flavor delivers tons of aged, brown apple and dark honey. Medium-bodied with an astringent mouthfeel and pillow-soft carbonation. Fruity, bone-dry finish.

What a great drop of suds this was. The drinkability of this beer is incredible!! If there is anything close to a Belgium session then this would be it. Nice aroma of bananna, bubblegum, sugar and lemon. Simply beautiful to look at. A huge white head with a cloudy yellow hue with a zillion bubbles zipping around like a cousin to champagne. A lively dance on the tongue gives way to a VERY refreshing beer with a taste profile to match the aroma. I couldn’t find any defects with this and recommend buying if you ever come across.

A bit hazy golden appearance with a big white head. As most of Malheurs beers I can pick up this raw, leafy hop aroma but not much else. Some caramely sweetnes, covered in honey in a thin body. The leafy charcter is there again in the finish but the beer is overall quite bland.

(Bottle 25 cl) Only 4,5% in my version. Golden ale with a pretty, white head and loads of floating impurities of the kind, that never really settle. Very light-bodied and dry beer with a medium bitterness and a perfect quenching effect. 140299

Hazy golden colour. Big white head, long lasting. Has alot of citrus in the aroma, also hints of hops and yeast. Has a slighty sweet taste and also a spicey taste, hints of yeast too- The aftertaste is a little dry and slightly bitter. Not a bad beer, but not my favourite.

skortila (5094) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2005
Aroma of citrus, hops and yeast. Hazy, yellow coloured with a lasting, perfectly white head. Taste is sweet, yeasty, citrus. Moderate bitter finish. Pleasant finish and aftertaste. Typical blond ale.

caesar (6295) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 31, 2005
Slightly cloudy golden color, medium white head. Aroma of hops, some caramel malt, bit spicy, some orange and mandarine. Slightly sweet and bitter taste with fruity notes, like a blonde ale. Quite tasteful, especially for such a low-alcohol beer.

bierkoning (11862) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2004
Orange aroma with a hint of mustard. Somewhat bitter flavor with some caramel and orange. Dusty with just a bit of tartness. Not the best Malheur beer.

Pours golden yellow. Big billowing head which quickly dissipates. Slightly bitter with somewhat musty nose. Light and spicy. A simple beer. Not very complex flavors happening here.
