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.

33 cL bottle. Pours slight hazy orange with a huge white and collapsing head. Faint grassy aroma, mild yeasty note and a light citrus fruity note too. Flavour is light citrus fruity with a mild malty base towards a light pilsner grassy flavour. Holds a smooth and light belgian yeast note. Very light compared to the bigger brothers of this brew. Ends with a mild lingering yeasty spice note. Refreshing.

Straw color yellow beer with a huge rocky white head. Light spicey nose. Sweet beer with some orange and yeast. It is a lighter beer, with the flavors more subtle than most Belgian ales, which makes it very quaffable.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a thick, frothy, white head. Interesting aroma and flavor of pilsner malt and noble hops with a bitter finish. This feels like a belgian pilsner but I prefer the bohemian pilseners. The body is light and creamy and the carbonation is moderate.

thewolf (11378) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2007
Bottle, bought @ Magasin, Aarhus. Pours a hazy orange with a big frothy, bubble white head. Aroma is malty with light sweetness and fruity zestiness - some clemtines and oranges. Relatively light mouthfeel, rather high carbonation. Flavour is sweeter than expected, with yeast at the back and lots of sweet orange peel. A touch thin perhaps, but avoids (perhaps intentionally) the fruity tartness of many other blondes.

Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2007
Golden with a huge, white head and good lace. The aroma has light citrussy notes, mostly tangerine. The mouthfeel is very prickly. The flavour is slightly sweet and has a strong note of orange peel. I would like more body in this one..

MaltOMeal (1092) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2007
330 ml bottle from trade with Papsoe. Pours a cloudy golden color with nice, finger-size fluffy white head. Head lingered throughout the drink. Aroma is sweet, yeasty with some citrus fruit - lemon maybe? Taste sure is Belgian - yeast, citrus, some spice - but not distinct. Kinda weak in the Belgian flavor. Medium-to-thin mouthfeel with some carbonation.

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - NOV 8, 2007
Pale sleightly hazy golden with a bubbling white head. Aroma is citrus flower with a good amount of dusty hobs and minor fruity esters. Flavor is quite sweet but mainly sour citrus fruits. Not that special for a belgian brew

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 3, 2007
Light clear golden with a small fluffy white head. Soft, sweet aroma... peach, wildflowers, caramel and vanilla, sounds great but it really isn’t that special for some reason. Smooth, light, balanced mouthful... flavours of peach, maybe a touch of tartness, some bready malt and table sugar too. Longish lightly bitter/sweet finish. Ticks all the boxes and is pretty enjoyable to drink.
