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.

DarkMagus (472) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 10, 2007
Gigantic foamy, rocky, meringue-like white head. Clear golden color. Aroma of fresh apples, pears, and citrus. Some light spiciness (coriander, nutmeg). Well-balanced fruity flavors (apples, pears), bitter hops, and a pleasant spiciness. Nice rich mouthfeel, slightly sticky and syrupy. Very bitter and dry finish. Good stuff.

davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - JUL 16, 2008
Appearance: pale yellow color. Medium head, white, rocky and not very lasting. Aroma: enough hoppy, with herbal and some mentholated and semi-citric. To malts, yeast and bubble-gun. Light hints of chamomile, lemon skin and papaya reminiscences. Flavor: malty start, quickly progress of yeast with earthy and bubble-gum hints. Medium and lasting dry-hoppy, some astringent, with grassy and peel lemon touches. Very slight metallic note. Palate: light to medium body and high carbonation. Remark: mediocre Belgian blond, some light in body. Only the hoppiness is some highlighted.

bonkiedeaap (428) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2015
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is golden blond with a slight haze and a white head, with very livingly CO2. A fruity scent of orange and pear. A delicate sweetness of candy with additionally the smell of overripe flowers. The taste has a subtle dry bitterness and besides a light fruitiness of peaches. The aftertaste is delicious with elegant bitters.

schuimkroaat (427) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 20, 2006
25 cl bottle, ’bbe’ May 07. Muddy amber, a plethora of fine bubbles, rich, overwhelming white head. Sticky aroma of honey biscuits as a basis for rather fishy smelling hops. Malty, honeyish taste with surprising tartiness on the tongue edges and a hoppy punch in the back of the mouth. A quickly disappearing body.

rdb84 (324) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2015
Orange golden color, medium frothy head. Slightly murky after yeast. Aroma: marzipan infused with a strong yeast presence, citrus notes, some faint cheese and walnut notes. Taste: cheese notes are more present now, otherwise a very standard Belgian blonde. Starts with a slight tang, faint marzipan notes. Develops a tangy medium bitterness with cheese notes. After yeast, the tang is removed and the mouthfeel is quite mellow. Aftertaste is a bit boozy, and reveals citrus.
