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.

Douberd (4911) - Arnhem, - FEB 2, 2013
Small bottle of 250 ml, at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 6%. Pale orange golden in colour, with a huge three fingers head, white and soapy. Very good retention, no lacing around the glass and very little activity in the glass. Not much of an aroma actually, some spices, orange peel and yeast, but all of them faint. On the taste, malty grainess and a fair amount of hops, average bitterness. Too much of the malts flavour if you ask me. As it warms up though, that flavour retreats and others are advancing, like the light citrus flavour for example. Medium on the body with average carbonation. Overall, not a bad beer, but nothing exceptional either.

Pours hazy yellow with a frothy white head. The aroma contains grass, yeast, citrus, hops and some other fruits. It tastes medium sweet and medium bitter, towards a dry and spicy finish, but balanced by the citric undertone. Medium body, soft carbonation. Decent enough in style, but not as tasty as the big brothers.

Richardvv94 (17) - Valthe, NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2016
Alleen gedronken, mooi goudgeel, dikke schuim van gemiddelde duur, ruikt fris en fruitig, smaakt fris met metaal, niet veel bijzonders, geen vervelende afdronk

BlackHaddock (6375) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2016
33cl bottle in Brugge on 7th Feb 2016. Slight haze to the yellow body, white head, lasting head. Aroma is malt first, with some mixed fruit esters milling around with yeast and spices. Taste follows the same lines, malty, fruity, yeasty, spicy and slightly floral in nature.

GSAP (698) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2015
Smaak citrus en eigenlijk meer water met vleug citroen, probeer iets anders te vinden wat er helaas niet in zit. Nasmaak bitterzuur, wat droog maar lomp. Kraag is grof en verdwijnt snel. Aroma is manderijnenschil, maar niet heftig genoeg. Veel bezinksel.

10-12-2015 Delft Bah! Hele vieze smaak. Nog nooit zo'n vies blond bier op al neigt het licht naar een IPA, vanwege smaak en lichte bitterheid. Troebele oranje kleur met veel schuim. Smaak valt echt tegen en is zelfs een beetje zuur.
