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.


Douberd's rating

Douberd (2808) - 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.

Alengrin (2722) - BELGIUM - JAN 21, 2015
The low ABV Malheur, a typical Belgian blonde, hazy golden with creamy, off-white head; fruity nose, a bit estery, floral hops, light citrus touch, bready and somewhat caramelly malts; soft and light in the mouth, quenching, malt sweetish, citrus touch for refreshment, fruity with herbally hop bitterish finish, drying a bit. Straightforward and simple but still bearing the Malheur quality stamp.

adasko (602) - Poznan, POLAND - JAN 2, 2015
Aromat słodko kwaskowy, z typowymi nutami belgijskimi, delikatnie słodowy, owocowy i kwiatowy. Barwa blado złota. Piwo mętne, mała ale bardzo ładna piana. W smaku typowy belgian ale. Słodowy, nieco owocowy. Maleńka goryczka pojawia się w posmaku. Dość wysoko nasycone - szczypie w ustach, orzeźwiające, pomimo nasycenia jednak dość gładkie.

Bottle, 25cL. Home. A golden orange beer with brown hues ; large white head with a medium retention. Fruity aroma (lemon), herbs and a "metallic" note. Medium dry bitter, light sweet. Light body, medium texture, medium to fizzy carbonation, bitter finish. Overall, a good one : balanced bitterness and herbal aroma ; close to a "saison".
