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.

BarossaLuke (539) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 9, 2013
A light pale Belgian ale with light fruity notes and a clean crisp palate. An easy drinking thirst quencher beer but nothing too exciting.

77ships (3564) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 28, 2013
25 cl. bottle from ALBO @ home. BBF 24/11/2013. Light hazy hay golden, quickly fading white head. Nose is bitter esters, BE style, some BE yeast, fresh hay, light citrus, grass, hint medicinal. Taste is hay, citrus, esters, some almost yoghurt / white bread sweet BE yeast, cereal, bitter grass, almost hint medicinal alcohol. Carb. is far too explosive. Manageable for the style. Not the biggest enthusiast of the Malheur series except for Dark Brut which is phenomenal.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 27.05.2013, 0,25l bottle @ home:
Big creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is fresh, hay, citrus, yeast, grass, citrus peel, some dried fruits. Taste is a little boring and one dimentional, hay, cereal, yeast, citrus, grass. Medium bitterness. Fair enough, easy drinking.

Abijen (1336) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2013
Pours a pretty nice orange yellow beer with a good white head. Smells standard. Herbs and grassy. The taste is not that boring as I expected. It has to much carbo tho.

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2013
Bottle. Pours a pale golden body with a large, yet rapidly fading, foamy white head. Aroma is egg liqueur, faint banana, mild cereals and hints of Belgian ale yeast. Taste is very clean, with mild cereals, slightly sour yeast tones, faint banana and metal in the back. The beer has a bit watery palate (at least for the ABV), high carbonation and an overall impression of not being really that awesome at all.

Vignale (1980) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2013
Flaska från beernavigator. Mörkt gyllenfärgad, vitt småbubbligt skum som snart sjunker till ett lock. Småbubblig munkänsla. Mandarin, honung och blommig jäst i doften. Smaken är ganska söt, ljunghonung, jäst, alkohol, mandarin- och apeplsinsmak och beska. Torrare svslutning. Fina smaker men aningen söt.

Clear orange, nice white head. Artificial taste and aroma, like a malt liquor, sweet and alcohol, despite the low abv.
