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.

yngwie (13924) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2011 Bottle. Unclear, golden body, and an off-white head. Spices, pale malt, some sugar and grass in the aroma. Nice, but a bit boring. Grass, pale malt, spicyness and some hops in the flavor, finishing dry and spicy. Medium body. A nice beer, but the Malheur 4-10 are growing a bit boring on me. Rating: 6-4-6-3-13-3.2. 070928

Bottle. It pours a hazy, golden body and a minimal-sized off-white head. Belgo-style fruity aroma with sugar and a hint of cellar. Slightly citrusy flavor, some pale malts and a faint hint of cellar. Medium body, citrusy, malty finish. It drinks easy, but is almost as boring as an industrial pilsner. 110107

Bottle. Fruity lemon-candy aroma. Golden colour, white head. Mild, sweet, citric flavour, a little watery. Peach?

TBone (12955) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 2, 2010
Bottled 25cl (BB 04/2012)
Slightly hazy golden color, good off-white head. Aroma of fresh herbs, rubber and lime peels. Quite light, watery for being 6% brew. Crisp. Flavor is similar to nose: lime peels, flowery - elderflowery herbal flavors, dry finish. Refreshing but simple.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 9, 2007
(Bottle, BB 9/11/07) Pours a hazy golden body with a small white head. Aroma of apricot, apple, light citrus, and pizza crust dough. Flavor of mild citrusy hops, apple, and caramel with a nice refreshing carbonation that makes for a nice thirst-quencher for the summer heat.

Leighton (11612) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle at the Cafe Rose Red, Brugges. Pours light, hazy yellow with a thick, white head. Sugary malt nose with hints of orange citrus. Medium sweet flavor, some metallic bite, light candi sugars, moderate hay bitterness, faint alcohol, dry caramel. Medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Lightly warming to finish with moderate, yeasty dry dough malts, light bitter straw, faint dry citrus and caramel. Nice.

Bottle at Cambrinus in Bruges. Pours gold with a white head. Nice fresh fruit smell and flavor, but there’s some herbal hop. Light and pleasant.
