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.

BBB63 (6346) - 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.

Ungstrup (29987) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 11, 2007
Bottled. A pale golden beer with a medium beige head. The aroma is sweet and very fruity - especially citrus fruits, but also with dusty notes of hops and yeast. The flavor is sweet with strong dusty hoppy notes combined with medium notes of fruits - again especially citrus fruits making quite refreshing, it also has hints of yeast before a dry and slightly spicy end sets in. The body is thin - but afterall it is a Belgian light beer ;-)

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) Pours a slightly hazy, pale amber with a tall, dense and lasting white head leaving laces. Aroma of pale malts with a whiff of yeast. Medium body with a light fruitiness and some yeast. Dry, light bitter finish with a touch of diacetyl. A very pleasant "Blonde" with no flaws. 040207

DarkMagus (472) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 10, 2007
Gigantic foamy, rocky, meringue-like white head. Clear golden color. Aroma of fresh apples, pears, and citrus. Some light spiciness (coriander, nutmeg). Well-balanced fruity flavors (apples, pears), bitter hops, and a pleasant spiciness. Nice rich mouthfeel, slightly sticky and syrupy. Very bitter and dry finish. Good stuff.
