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.

JorisPPattyn (7785) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 26, 2005
Fully hazy yellow, wheat colour; good white head, reasonably stable. Milky wheat nose, grains, lightly oppressive; very faint spices, but under the identification treshold. Strange - again wheaty, but quite unlike usual wheatbeer. Quite malty, with a citrus surrounding. Quite carbonated. Aftertaste yiels some low-profile bitterness. It’s got a certain sharpness to it, that reveals itself only after some time. Quite good blonde. I wonder whence the wheat associations, as they aren’t supposed to be there?

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 23, 2005
Hazy yellow appearance, bif white head. Thin and a bit sour aroma of leaves, honey and earth. Oak leaves and hops in the flavour. Quite thin. Unclean, short finish. Quite dry.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - APR 7, 2005
(on bottle) Vague, but complex, fruity nose and a champagne-fresh mouthfeel. It´s a straight beer, not overpowered, has an applecider-like finish to it Would be perfect for cervice(raw lemon-marinaded haddock with chilli).

Citric nose of grapefruits and lemon. Yeast in it. Hazy, yellow coloured with a lasting, white head. Taste is sweet, yeasty, citric, some hops. Typical blond ale. Bit dry, but refreshing. Well brewed but not really special.
