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.

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!

Difficult to classify: triple? golden ale? something ele entirely? Who knows, but I still really enjoyed this ale. Light, fluffy body and yeasty nose and flavors, and a great bottle-conditioned twang.

Oh, this is a nice way to end thy day. Sweet, creamy and a bit of wheat to it, like a fresh baget. Nice balance, light and beautiful to look through.
