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.

davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - JUL 16, 2008
Appearance: pale yellow color. Medium head, white, rocky and not very lasting. Aroma: enough hoppy, with herbal and some mentholated and semi-citric. To malts, yeast and bubble-gun. Light hints of chamomile, lemon skin and papaya reminiscences. Flavor: malty start, quickly progress of yeast with earthy and bubble-gum hints. Medium and lasting dry-hoppy, some astringent, with grassy and peel lemon touches. Very slight metallic note. Palate: light to medium body and high carbonation. Remark: mediocre Belgian blond, some light in body. Only the hoppiness is some highlighted.

First beer at a drinking and eating session at Den Tatoverede Enke, Copenhagen. 250ml bottle. Hazy, blond body over a lasting, white tophead. Nice spicy aroma with hints of fresh fruits. Light spicy flavour supported by clementines and nettly hops. Touch of yeast to the end. Moderate sweetness (30.05.2008).

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 29, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2008 Bottle, courtesy Papsoe. Pours a light murky caramel color, with a fizzy half-inch of white head, and drippy wet lacing. Clove aroma, banana, raisin, cream, some oats and grain. Belgian yeast prominent in the flavor, coriander, some zest, hoppy bitterness, and a distinct chalkiness. Body is clean and refreshing overall. Quite drinkable.

thanks to auderale for this one. It pours very pale yellow with a large foamy white head that quickly dies. The flavor is lemony/orangey and it’s quite the thirst quencher on a hot day (96F/35F)
