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.

yngwie (14910) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2011 Bottle. Unclear, golden body, and an off-white head. Spices, pale malt, some sugar and grass in the aroma. Nice, but a bit boring. Grass, pale malt, spicyness and some hops in the flavor, finishing dry and spicy. Medium body. A nice beer, but the Malheur 4-10 are growing a bit boring on me. Rating: 6-4-6-3-13-3.2. 070928

Bottle. It pours a hazy, golden body and a minimal-sized off-white head. Belgo-style fruity aroma with sugar and a hint of cellar. Slightly citrusy flavor, some pale malts and a faint hint of cellar. Medium body, citrusy, malty finish. It drinks easy, but is almost as boring as an industrial pilsner. 110107

rederic (3203) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2007
Slight hazy honey gold hue, with a frothy white head, yeasty, fruity nose of faint citrusy and ripe apples, with a mild honeyed pale malt note, with a shy flowery hop in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, fruity character of grapefruit and lemon, with a subtle vanilla spiciness, some honeyed palt malt accents, with a note of wet hay, leading towards a flowery hop dryness finish.

DruncanVeasey (7439) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2007
Misty spritz with a creamy head of froth. Sourish, citric nose with some of the skunky hops/metal of a cheap bottled Belgian Pils. Some piney hop notes sneaking out as it warms. Sugared, but developing a respectable hop bitterness. Smooth, lacy, fruity. Certainly a trace of the apple/grape-like house fruitness. Delicious bready afters. Hoppy, malty, fruity, complex....confusingly good beer.

bu11zeye (12112) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 9, 2007
(Bottle, BB 9/11/07) Pours a hazy golden body with a small white head. Aroma of apricot, apple, light citrus, and pizza crust dough. Flavor of mild citrusy hops, apple, and caramel with a nice refreshing carbonation that makes for a nice thirst-quencher for the summer heat.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5332) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a slightly cloudy yellow color with a medium sized yellow-white head. The aroma was lightly sweet with a hints of lemon. There were light spicy and citrusy undertones. There was a light hint of honey. The alcohol was mildly noticeable.

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