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.

StueyD (1110) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2014
A pale golden yellow coloured beer with a frothy and thick white head. A light, dusty malt smell, biscuity, then a tropical fruit hop aroma with a hint of spice. Medium-dry mouthfeel. A dry, biscuity malt taste to start, but this is only brief, it is soon taken over by a tangy tropical fruit hop flavour, with pineapple, banana and citrusy grapefruit and lemon. There is a hint of clove and cinnamon spice, reminiscent of a wheat beer. The finish is long, tangy fruit along with the spices.

Bottle@home. One finger foam. Banana yeasty notes. Smooth dry. Good carbonation. Slight tarte. Fine not very complex brew.

MaltOMeal (1090) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2007
330 ml bottle from trade with Papsoe. Pours a cloudy golden color with nice, finger-size fluffy white head. Head lingered throughout the drink. Aroma is sweet, yeasty with some citrus fruit - lemon maybe? Taste sure is Belgian - yeast, citrus, some spice - but not distinct. Kinda weak in the Belgian flavor. Medium-to-thin mouthfeel with some carbonation.

tfredvik (1031) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 5, 2013
Very hazy golden body with a small white head that settles as a thin layer, some lacing. The aroma is rather strong and quite candy sweet, but also with hints of dust. It’s fruity with banana, bubble gum, spices, yeast and traces of vanilla. A very light sweetness and bitterness, and the finish isn’t very long-lasting. The quite strong flavours are a bit less candy-ish than the aroma and the spices are more evident. Medium to light bodied, a bit water body with a dry finish, lively carbonation. Quite good.

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 29, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2008 Bottle, courtesy Papsoe. Pours a light murky caramel color, with a fizzy half-inch of white head, and drippy wet lacing. Clove aroma, banana, raisin, cream, some oats and grain. Belgian yeast prominent in the flavor, coriander, some zest, hoppy bitterness, and a distinct chalkiness. Body is clean and refreshing overall. Quite drinkable.

Dark blonde, small dense head. Aroma has some sweets, like honey. Reasoanble bitter taste, some soapy by-taste, medium to full bodied, reasonable finish.

A decent ale in its class. Blond and refreshening, has the potential to become a standard.
