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.

(Drinking date: 10 March 2014) Clear golden coloured beer with a big layer of foam which disappears quickly. Nice fresh aroma of yeast and fruit, and unfortunately a bit of metal. Nice hoppy bitterness in the taste, but also a bit of that metal taste unfortunately. Also a bit dried fruits in the taste. There is also a bit of a sweetness present. The beer is really refreshing. The mouthfeel is good, and the carbonation just a little bit too much. I enjoyed this beer, but it is not one of the best blonde beers. But it is still good though! That’s why I give it the total score of 3.5

Golden blond beer, fluffy white hrad. Good aroma with touches of malts, apricots, honey, flowers and some hops. the taste is pilzener like and wheaty. It has a soft fruity accents of peache and lemon. the taste is little weak. Also touches of bread, cerealssome fruits and some hops in the finale.

Belgik (72) - Sterrebeek, BELGIUM - JAN 7, 2002
Loose off-white foam over copper colored yeast-cloudy brew (the ’procedure’ calls for swirling the bottle dregs into the glass!) Rather bland aroma at first, at most a yeasty white-beer type nose, evolving into a nice medium-intense nose, with well-balanced yeast-hop-malt aromas. Nice foam in the mouth, medium-bodied and, again, nice balancing act between the -not too high! ABV- hops and malty/yeasty tastes. The magic is in the balanced, if short, aftertaste. Ale needs not be ’strong’ to be perfectly enjoyable, and this beer has quite some finesse!

I had never heard of the beer or the brewer, but I must give my compliments. This is a good beer.

Mousse peu épaisse et persistance courte. Belle couleur jaune paille. Nez agréable et fruité. Entrée de bouche légèrement amère et citronnée. Manque un peu de caractère sur la fin de bouche. Bière équilibré et agréable.

De Landtsheer used to brew the Malheur series towards the more bitter side. Nice, fresh and hoppy brews in a beer country where sweet is/was still the way to go. However the have all received a transformation, just like the brewery itself. They became more and more mainstream. And the Malheur 6 is sadly no exception. Although it didn’t become more sweet, it just is not as fresh and hoppy any more. To bad because I really used to enjoy this beer.

Good beer for a hot day. Complex but not over the top. Enough alcohol to satisfy and enjoy many bottles
