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.

Good beer for a hot day. Complex but not over the top. Enough alcohol to satisfy and enjoy many bottles

At Cambrinus in Halle. Unfiltered pale ale. On the lighter side for a Belgium beer but refreshing.

BBB63 (6037) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 14, 2007
Had at the PP 12 hour fest: Golden hue with large frothy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of pineapple, apple and pear fruity esters, light spice of coriander and pepper, biscuity malts, hint of Belgian crystal sugar, and aromatic hops. The taste is mostly a straight forward combination of fruity flavors and pale malts. The finish is lightly spiced and a hint of butterscotch on the aftertaste. The mouth feel is spritzy and refreshing but has a bready finish. A solid offering but far from the bigger beers under the Malheur label.
