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 from PP Belgian Beer Fest. Earthy spicy aroams. Excellent flavor with some more spice and nice fruity notes. Pretty good.

Embrouille (2830) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 20, 2010
Bottled 25cl. It pours a yellow beer with a tall, nicely remaining lacing white head. Very interesting and inviting nose with hints of mint, melissa, turkish delight, citrus, faint sweat, melon and rose petals. Reminiscence of a light tripel throughout. Yeast accented. Flawless and deeply pleasant. A great beer which is underrated in my opinion.

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

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!

This beer has quite a bit of bang for its alcohol content. There is some honey and malty spiciness, but it all comes together with a fabulous crisp belgian yeastiness. Some oxidized hop flavors in the background, but understandable due to expiry date almost 2 years past. Very enjoyable.

diabel (1609) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - OCT 12, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2006 Bottle Pale, blond body. White fizzy head, mostly diminishing. No lace. Very complex aroma of vanilla, hops, liquor, flowers, ... Moderately bitter, lightly sweet initial flavour. Moderately bitter finish. Quite complex beer.

Tejas (882) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2005
Cloudy gold with a nice white head. Light apple aroma. At 6% and a good flavor this is highly drinkable. This 25cl bottle was gone in a matter of minutes. I could put many of these away. Not terribly complex but still, this is a really nice little brew.

jookos (2607) - FINLAND - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle. Clear pale colour. Nice pale malty nose with belgy yeasty flavours, some honey, and a good touch of nobles. Mouth filling soft body. Pale smooth malts, not grainy/crackery in any way. This is pretty much how a lighter (6) belgian ale should be like. Good pale malty flavours, good mellow yeasty esters. Lively flavours. This is just nice.
