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.

bu11zeye (12367) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 9, 2007
(Bottle, BB 9/11/07) Pours a hazy golden body with a small white head. Aroma of apricot, apple, light citrus, and pizza crust dough. Flavor of mild citrusy hops, apple, and caramel with a nice refreshing carbonation that makes for a nice thirst-quencher for the summer heat.

imdownthepub (11947) - 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.

FatPhil (11827) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 6, 2008
330ml bottle (Poirotti, Helsinki)
Pale cloudy orange, healthy tight head. Big tomatoes and then honey aroma. A touch perfumey. Very simply sweet plain light malty body. Quite dull, actually. Nothing actually wrong with it, but no guts, no highlights, no bite. I want more of a crisp hop component to my blondes.

Pinball (11704) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2009
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.

thewolf (11645) - 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.

Lubiere (11586) - 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.

bierkoning (11526) - 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.

Benzai (11351) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2011
Bottle at Cafe Buitenlust, Oirschot. Golden colored beer with a nice white head. Smell and taste ok, bit watery texture.
