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.

MaltOMeal (1092) - 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.

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.

txspartan (968) - Wilrijk, BELGIUM - MAR 10, 2011
A decent ale in its class. Blond and refreshening, has the potential to become a standard.

EddyBeer1 (920) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2013
Dorée claire, pétillance moyenne, col fin. Du début malté, on ne passe pas trop vite au houblon à cause d’un côté lavasse. Manque cruellement de nuances!
