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.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2007
A Sim rate (Bottle at the Weekend of S.F.): Wheaty corn aroma with hops etc. Appearance is that of a regular blonde. Wheaty alcoholic flavour with a pils like bitter finish.

Borresteijn (4851) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2008
Bottle. Hazy pale yellow/orange colour, white head. Aroma of yeast, perfume, poo. Flavour is strong, perfume, hops, dirty yeast, some fruits. Flavours seemed a bit off.

FatPhil (9463) - 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.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 23, 2005
Hazy yellow appearance, bif white head. Thin and a bit sour aroma of leaves, honey and earth. Oak leaves and hops in the flavour. Quite thin. Unclean, short finish. Quite dry.

NosirIwont (1987) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2009
Bottle. Pours a murky yellow-orange with a white head. Sweet, fresh, faintly tart aroma. Stingy. Flowery notes. Bit of citrus. Malt and grass as it warms. Flavour is sweet and quite perfumy. Yeast notes. Grassy finish with a bit of hops. Too much carbonation. Not bad as such, but I’m not impressed. Could do without the perfumy notes. 14-08-09.

TBone (12941) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 2, 2010
Bottled 25cl (BB 04/2012)
Slightly hazy golden color, good off-white head. Aroma of fresh herbs, rubber and lime peels. Quite light, watery for being 6% brew. Crisp. Flavor is similar to nose: lime peels, flowery - elderflowery herbal flavors, dry finish. Refreshing but simple.

bluevegie (3058) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2011
Pale golden body with minimal lasting head. Citrus and a touch of spice in the aroma. Taste is simple and easy enough to drink, citrus and orange once again.

Xstream (172) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2013
Where Malheur 12 is one of my favorite beer, this is surprisingly boring. It’s just an ok beer, nothing special about it. Pretty much like a pilsner but twice the price getting a smaller 25 cl in return.

MaartenRF10 (1613) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2013
Clear orange, nice white head. Artificial taste and aroma, like a malt liquor, sweet and alcohol, despite the low abv.
