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.

Glouglouburp (5929) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2008 In short: A light refreshing fluffy Belgian Blonde Ale. Good beer
How: Bottle 330ml, about 3 months old
The look: Partly cloudy blonde body with lots of small particles and a huge long-lasting white head
In long: Nose and taste of of citrus, coriander and peppery spices. Fluffy meringue mouthfeel too. Dry grainy honeyed cereals. Fresh bananas, some peaches and lemon skin. Lactic/whip-cream sensation. Very yeasty but the body is rather thin and lacks malt density. Some dry grassy hops providing a light dryness an a mild bitterness. . Could almost pass as a witbier. When I’m in the mood for a light thirst-quencher this is one is a (Landt)sheer pleasure.

mds (2167) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 26, 2006
Bottle. Foggy golden-yellow with a small, white, creamy head. Aroma has soap, spices, and cookies. Slightly watery soft texture. Cookies and yeast flavour dominate but there is a sure lack of complexity. Finishes quickly with green leafy hop bitterness.
