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.

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.

Yellow hazy brew. Nose with fresh hoppy tone and a hint of candle wax. The flavor is very almondy. OK beer

Bière qui est une blonde de base de 6 % abv refermentée en bouteille. Ceci n’offre aucun inconvénient, mais le format en 25 cl m’horripile au plus haut point... Certes il s’agit de la Malheur la moins forte (encore qu’on m’a parlé d’une 4!!!) , mais de là à n’en proposer que 25 cl, on a l’impression d’une bière pour enfant au berceau … Voilà, c’est dit !! Couleur doré moyen brillant. Clarté nette. Bulles très fines en colonnes bien vives, et même torsadées au début. Superbe. Mousse épaisse à flocons moyens, crémeuse en haut, qui tient longtemps à 15 mm. Arômes de blé, orge, mie de pain, pointe de figue. 1ère bouche soyeuse avec une prise plutôt sur des épices douces. Arrière-bouche maltée, très sympa. 2ème avec malt et houblon, mais les nuances sont moins fines. 3ème qui montre un équilibre malt/houblon, mais sur un niveau moyen. Arrière-bouche assez courte. La longueur entame sur un calibre moyen, et donne un peu dans le même registre. La levure est un peu salée, et un peu faible. L’alcool curieusement est assez correct (??) La finale ne peut dépasser le niveau, mais la bière est agréable. CONCLUSION : format ridicule en 25 cl, surtout pour une bière à 6 % abv, qui dévalorise un peu d’entrée de jeu cette bière... Parfois, je ne comprends pas du tout les idées marketing de gens qui sont supposés avoir étudié le marché ... Pour le reste, on a un breuvage correct sans autre considération.

adasko (787) - Poznan, POLAND - JAN 2, 2015
Aromat słodko kwaskowy, z typowymi nutami belgijskimi, delikatnie słodowy, owocowy i kwiatowy. Barwa blado złota. Piwo mętne, mała ale bardzo ładna piana. W smaku typowy belgian ale. Słodowy, nieco owocowy. Maleńka goryczka pojawia się w posmaku. Dość wysoko nasycone - szczypie w ustach, orzeźwiające, pomimo nasycenia jednak dość gładkie.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 3, 2007
Light clear golden with a small fluffy white head. Soft, sweet aroma... peach, wildflowers, caramel and vanilla, sounds great but it really isn’t that special for some reason. Smooth, light, balanced mouthful... flavours of peach, maybe a touch of tartness, some bready malt and table sugar too. Longish lightly bitter/sweet finish. Ticks all the boxes and is pretty enjoyable to drink.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - MAY 29, 2005
Warm blond beer with a creamy white froth. Soft nose with hints of malts, stone fruits, flowers, slight honey accent and some hops. the taste is pils-malty and wheaty. It has a soft fruity accents of apricot and lime skin. Overall, the body is on the thin side. Also a touch of cruble cake with a slight hoppy touch in the afthertaste.

Sten (694) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2014
Orange beer with a fast diminishing head. Heavy aroma of sweet malts and a bit of alcohol. Taste is medium sweet, malty and a bit flat. (Bottle 33cl)
