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.

Abio (1859) - Waasland, BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2010
Pours out lightly yellow, golden colored. A good sized white head that holds good. Smell of yeast, spices and some citrus. A bit between a pilsner and triple. Taste is sour-bitterness, some spices and citrus. A bit flat.

tfredvik (1762) - 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.
[25 cl bottle, enjoyed 14 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Online]

thirstyrabbit (1751) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle. Hazy pale golden body, medium to small head. Sweet yeasty aroma with wheat. Sweet wheaty/yeasty taste. Adequate hoppiness. Alright table beer but a forgettable drop in the vast ocean of Belgian Blondes. Could do with a stronger character. PS: "Malheur 6" sounds like a name for a French rap sextet or a metal band.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - APR 7, 2005
(on bottle) Vague, but complex, fruity nose and a champagne-fresh mouthfeel. It´s a straight beer, not overpowered, has an applecider-like finish to it Would be perfect for cervice(raw lemon-marinaded haddock with chilli).

Foffern (1698) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUL 16, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours a slightly hazy dark straw colour with a big whipped eggwhite-like off-white head. Aroma of citrus, Belgian yeast and some sweet fruit and spices. Mild flavour with much of the same but with more pale malt, straw and hay. Has a smooth and slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A solid and mild Belgian blond ale.

bleeng (1668) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2007
At Cambrinus in Halle. Unfiltered pale ale. On the lighter side for a Belgium beer but refreshing.
