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.

visionthing (3204) - 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 (3606) - 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 (1358) - 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.

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 (4687) - 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.

Abijen (1568) - ’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 (4428) - 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 (2326) - 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.
