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.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2014 Aroma of ripe fruits, malty grain. Slightly sour. Rich carbonation, bit too rich for my taste. An ok blonde, but there’s tons better.

Dorée claire, pétillance moyenne, col fin. Du début malté, on ne passe pas trop vite au houblon à cause d’un côté lavasse. Manque cruellement de nuances!

Russo (1650) - Campinas, BRAZIL - AUG 4, 2013
Tried at Anders Bier festival in Tongeren. Pale orange beer, nice white creamy head that disappear slowly. Aroma is grainy, malty. Flavor is quite sweet, with some hints of malt and yeast. Mouthfeel is low carbonation, light to medium body. I’ve got a little bit disappointed after try the Malheur 10! :/

visionthing (2570) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2013
From bottle at a tasting at Bar & Cigar. Almost clear golden with a white head. Fairly mild fruity and yeasty aroma with spices, malt and hints of hops. Moderate sweet, yeasty and fruity with some acidity and bitterness. Well balanced. Nice and easy drinkable Belgian ale.

Palme (3163) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2013
0.25l bottle. This is a near clear, light blurry golden one with a big lasting white top. It smells really classic Belgian this. Belgian yeast, bright candied sugar, green sweet apples, something almost herbal and traces of some canned fruit-juice. Really lightdrinkable, somewhat fruit-sour sweet like glucose. It has a average+ carbonation level and a light oily mouthfeel. Again some light apply thing in the taste with hints of canned peaches. It’s actually not all that exciting his, but it’s not totally boring either. Just a bit generic perhaps? Lightdrinkable and definitely a Belgian taste over it. 16.05.2013

Foffern (1150) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUL 16, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours a slightly hazy dark straw colour with a big whipped eggwhite-like off-white head. Aroma of citrus, Belgian yeast and some sweet fruit and spices. Mild flavour with much of the same but with more pale malt, straw and hay. Has a smooth and slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A solid and mild Belgian blond ale.
