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.

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.

EddyBeer1 (997) - 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!

txspartan (973) - Wilrijk, BELGIUM - MAR 10, 2011
A decent ale in its class. Blond and refreshening, has the potential to become a standard.

BelgiskOlklub (944) - Viby J, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2008
Bottle, 25 cl. Average size creamy, white head with excellent lacing. Lightly cloudy, yellow colour. Average/heavy malty aroma of bread and grain. Light hoppy aroma of flowers and perfume. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation and bitter finish. Moderate/heavy sweet flavor and light bitter. One-dimensional.

Buongiorgio00 (933) - - JUN 5, 2014
Una classica belgian ale, piacevolmente fruttata e arricchita da note dolci, di lieviti e una leggera punta mielata.

Tejas (905) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2005
Cloudy gold with a nice white head. Light apple aroma. At 6% and a good flavor this is highly drinkable. This 25cl bottle was gone in a matter of minutes. I could put many of these away. Not terribly complex but still, this is a really nice little brew.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2005
Cloudy yellow colour, white head with many small bubbles. Like the 10 a very nice fruity aroma. Flavour is refreshing but perhaps a little boring compared to the stronger "Misfortunes". Carbonation is very high but all in all this is a very nice summer beer.
