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.

MoritzF (9423) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - APR 26, 2009
(33cl bottle) Hazy, golden colour with a big and dense foamy white head. Yeasty and sweei pale malty aroma with light notes of citrus, a tinge of honey and spicy herbal hops. Bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Pale malt-character with restrained fruity notes; almost dry and a bit astringent hop bitter finish with herbal spice. Good, hoppy stuff (26.IV.09).

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 6, 2008
330ml bottle (Poirotti, Helsinki)
Pale cloudy orange, healthy tight head. Big tomatoes and then honey aroma. A touch perfumey. Very simply sweet plain light malty body. Quite dull, actually. Nothing actually wrong with it, but no guts, no highlights, no bite. I want more of a crisp hop component to my blondes.

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2008
A little hazy yellow colored beer, with a big white foamy head. The aroma of sweet malts, fruits like orange and citrus and some hop in the back. The taste is fruity fresh, citrus, a little thin but a nice mouth feeling. The aftertaste is lite bitter.

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.
