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.

thewolf (11292) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2007
Bottle, bought @ Magasin, Aarhus. Pours a hazy orange with a big frothy, bubble white head. Aroma is malty with light sweetness and fruity zestiness - some clemtines and oranges. Relatively light mouthfeel, rather high carbonation. Flavour is sweeter than expected, with yeast at the back and lots of sweet orange peel. A touch thin perhaps, but avoids (perhaps intentionally) the fruity tartness of many other blondes.

cloudy orange, large white head that soon grows smaller. aroma is honey, mango, yeast, old hops. flavor is hoppy, fruity, dry, balanced. if you like hops and belgian this is a good mix.

imdownthepub (10776) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2009
Bottle conditioned, 330ml, from BEERmerchants of Kent. Sl hazed orange gold with white head, chunks of yeast. There is no misfortune with this, it is a sweetish malty Belgian with a touch of spice, probably at the right level for me, and an easy fruitiness. Reasonable hop note in the close, very drinkable.

bierkoning (10659) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2003
Big frothy head. Gold orange color, cloudy. Just a hint of citrus, some hops and some yeast both in aroma and flavor. Orange with just a bit of caramel. Dusty and an upcoming winey flavor.

Lubiere (10560) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 11, 2009
A hazy golden ale with a thick lacing white head. A pleasant honey and orange pulp in aroma, with lemony character, and yeast. In mouth, a nice hoppy belgian ale, with strawy character, light sweet and mineral notes, a bit of a creamy mouthfeel. Medium bodied. Bieropholie imports. BB 21-09-08.

Bottled. Pale yellow coluored. Unclear. Huge off white dense head. Citric, fruity and light spiced aroma. Light yeast. Flavour is yeasty and spiced as well. Fruits and sweetness is there. Nicely bodied. Is refreshing in the end. Citric and light sour sweetnotes rounds it all up.
