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.

Bottle at the Cafe Rose Red, Brugges. Pours light, hazy yellow with a thick, white head. Sugary malt nose with hints of orange citrus. Medium sweet flavor, some metallic bite, light candi sugars, moderate hay bitterness, faint alcohol, dry caramel. Medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Lightly warming to finish with moderate, yeasty dry dough malts, light bitter straw, faint dry citrus and caramel. Nice.

Maria (10133) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2007
Golden with a huge, white head and good lace. The aroma has light citrussy notes, mostly tangerine. The mouthfeel is very prickly. The flavour is slightly sweet and has a strong note of orange peel. I would like more body in this one..

imdownthepub (10022) - 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.

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.
