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.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - MAR 12, 2003
Clear blond beer with a big white head. The aroma is rubber, urine, fruit and some hop. Light bitter hoppy taste. Rather dry bitter finish. Long dry aftertaste.

Bottled. Mustard yellow and hazy with creamy head. Flowery arma. Clean and plain, much less hoppy than their ’10’. Notes of vanilla, low bitterness.

Happy Birthday Trappist Ale Rules’ This beers for you. Re-Rate 08/27/02: I stashed this beer away 2 years ago today as the world renowned ’Beer Expert’ Michael Jackson said. This beer after aging for a year, or even better yet two years increases in flavor, complexness, ’yada yada yada’.

Well ’Mikey Baby’ let’s see. The pour is a clear amber, the head is off white, the lace in thick sheets to coat the glass. Nose is deep malt, citrusy, brandyish, a tad or hint of bubblegum, sweet. Front is sweet, the top is light, the finish is quite acidic, very dry, and a nice hop bite, also a hint of fusel alcohol in the moderately bitter aftertaste. Ranks a respectable #280 on my current 1000 beer list.

Oily citrus fruit and flying yeast flakes…Apricot honey and no effervescence whatsoever…Something weird is going on here…

DrBeer (829) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2002
Yellow hazy brew. Nose with fresh hoppy tone and a hint of candle wax. The flavor is very almondy. OK beer

This beer has quite a bit of bang for its alcohol content. There is some honey and malty spiciness, but it all comes together with a fabulous crisp belgian yeastiness. Some oxidized hop flavors in the background, but understandable due to expiry date almost 2 years past. Very enjoyable.

Belgik (72) - Sterrebeek, BELGIUM - JAN 7, 2002
Loose off-white foam over copper colored yeast-cloudy brew (the ’procedure’ calls for swirling the bottle dregs into the glass!) Rather bland aroma at first, at most a yeasty white-beer type nose, evolving into a nice medium-intense nose, with well-balanced yeast-hop-malt aromas. Nice foam in the mouth, medium-bodied and, again, nice balancing act between the -not too high! ABV- hops and malty/yeasty tastes. The magic is in the balanced, if short, aftertaste. Ale needs not be ’strong’ to be perfectly enjoyable, and this beer has quite some finesse!

I had never heard of the beer or the brewer, but I must give my compliments. This is a good beer.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2007 I like the cork version better. It seems to age better and has a creamier head that is Fred-esque! Very hoppy and aged quite well. I had one that was a year and a half old. Beautiful!
