COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In a country with beers named after the Devil, or called "Sudden Death", one called "Misfortune" (Malheur, in French) is just another wry jest. The beer itself is no joke. On the contrary, it is an inspired beer. Malheur is made in a new, revivalist, brewery.

De minste van de Malheur-bieren voor mij persoonlijk, niet zoveel smaak aan deze.

Bière qui est une blonde de base de 6 % abv refermentée en bouteille. Ceci n’offre aucun inconvénient, mais le format en 25 cl m’horripile au plus haut point... Certes il s’agit de la Malheur la moins forte (encore qu’on m’a parlé d’une 4!!!) , mais de là à n’en proposer que 25 cl, on a l’impression d’une bière pour enfant au berceau … Voilà, c’est dit !! Couleur doré moyen brillant. Clarté nette. Bulles très fines en colonnes bien vives, et même torsadées au début. Superbe. Mousse épaisse à flocons moyens, crémeuse en haut, qui tient longtemps à 15 mm. Arômes de blé, orge, mie de pain, pointe de figue. 1ère bouche soyeuse avec une prise plutôt sur des épices douces. Arrière-bouche maltée, très sympa. 2ème avec malt et houblon, mais les nuances sont moins fines. 3ème qui montre un équilibre malt/houblon, mais sur un niveau moyen. Arrière-bouche assez courte. La longueur entame sur un calibre moyen, et donne un peu dans le même registre. La levure est un peu salée, et un peu faible. L’alcool curieusement est assez correct (??) La finale ne peut dépasser le niveau, mais la bière est agréable. CONCLUSION : format ridicule en 25 cl, surtout pour une bière à 6 % abv, qui dévalorise un peu d’entrée de jeu cette bière... Parfois, je ne comprends pas du tout les idées marketing de gens qui sont supposés avoir étudié le marché ... Pour le reste, on a un breuvage correct sans autre considération.

Vanmiddag gedronken op terras bij de roestelberg vanaf de tap. Fris blond bier, wat het goed doet in het zonnetje. Mist wel wat kracht.

Una classica belgian ale, piacevolmente fruttata e arricchita da note dolci, di lieviti e una leggera punta mielata.

A cloudy, yellow beer with a medium and white head. The nose is fruitfull with lemon, oranges, spices, some herbs and honey, fresh. Taste is fruitfull, strongly spicy, some sourness, quite dry and herbal end. Medium bodied, strong carbonation, fresh. Nice blond, quite complex and tastefull.

Chudwick (2094) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - APR 9, 2014
25cl bottle into wrong glass - nose is metallic yeast. Wet bread meets hay. Fairly light for 6% ABV. Slight peppery finish. Did not meet expectations.

Moolesen (191) - NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2014
Bottle 25cl. Cloudy Golden with a huge white head. Some hops in the aroma. Taste also reveils some pinetree. Quite a rich beer with high carbonization.

StueyD (1145) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2014
A pale golden yellow coloured beer with a frothy and thick white head. A light, dusty malt smell, biscuity, then a tropical fruit hop aroma with a hint of spice. Medium-dry mouthfeel. A dry, biscuity malt taste to start, but this is only brief, it is soon taken over by a tangy tropical fruit hop flavour, with pineapple, banana and citrusy grapefruit and lemon. There is a hint of clove and cinnamon spice, reminiscent of a wheat beer. The finish is long, tangy fruit along with the spices.
