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.

#367 Goldgelbes Blond, nur leicht trüb und - Holla die Waldfee - gaaanz viel Schaum, geil! Fruchtig-hefiges Aroma nach Grapefruit und Zitrone. Im Antrunk schön erfrischend und fruchtig im Geschmack. Vom lieblichen Honig-Melone-Mix gehts über in einen immer herber werdenden Nachgeschmack. Gutes Bier, das Spaß macht!. Einziges "Malheur" ist dieses Etikett mit dem "M" à la "S" wie Superman... Test vom 9.3.2011, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,11,11,11,6,11 - 10,85

Countbeer (4429) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle: Medium to bigger vast and slow disappearing or changing white head on top of a hazy yellow colored beer. Smell peach, grains, some hops, citrus and light creamy. Taste is a pretty smooth mix of hops, citrus, malts, light warmth, some spicy tones, crispy yellow fruit, light yeasty, light bitter, some creamy tones, some creamy grains, orange and floral herby hop tones. Aftertaste is bitter with yellow fruits, floral hoppy grass tones, some yeast. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy texture. I think those Malheur beers are pretty good, but those ugly labels...

psilosophy (491) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - NOV 2, 2012
Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur Dorée légèrement trouble, mouse moyenne mais qui conserve une couche tenace! 2 fois moins forte que sa grande soeur la malheur 12, celle-ci n’en est pas pour autant 2 fois moins bonne. Des arômes d’agrumes, un bel équilibre des goûts et un corps honorable pour une bière relativement légère. Une carbonnation soutenue et agréable vient compléter l’harmonie de cette production. Trouvée à l’ Entrepôt - Corcelle les Lens.
