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.

jookos (2313) - 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.

Eructoblaster (3054) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 28, 2009
Bottle - 330ml. Beautiful cloudy golden body with yeasty chunks and a thin white foamy/bubbly head. Fresh hoppy aroma with herbal, flowery and citrusy hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries yeasty, coriander, and honeyish notes. Alcohol is well hidden. Ends with a decent bitter/herbal finish. Enjoyable.

Countbeer (4518) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle: Medium to bigger vast and slow disappearing or changing white head on top of a hazy yellow colored beer. Smell peach, grains, some hops, citrus and light creamy. Taste is a pretty smooth mix of hops, citrus, malts, light warmth, some spicy tones, crispy yellow fruit, light yeasty, light bitter, some creamy tones, some creamy grains, orange and floral herby hop tones. Aftertaste is bitter with yellow fruits, floral hoppy grass tones, some yeast. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy texture. I think those Malheur beers are pretty good, but those ugly labels...

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 2, 2012
#367 Goldgelbes Blond, nur leicht trüb und - Holla die Waldfee - gaaanz viel Schaum, geil! Fruchtig-hefiges Aroma nach Grapefruit und Zitrone. Im Antrunk schön erfrischend und fruchtig im Geschmack. Vom lieblichen Honig-Melone-Mix gehts über in einen immer herber werdenden Nachgeschmack. Gutes Bier, das Spaß macht!. Einziges "Malheur" ist dieses Etikett mit dem "M" à la "S" wie Superman... Test vom 9.3.2011, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,11,11,11,6,11 - 10,85

RexTalionis (2512) - FINLAND - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle 25 cl. Pours hazy golden in color with a creamy whitish head. Some fruityness and summer meadow mixed with bready notes in aroma at first. Quite soft mouthfeel. Bit of breadyness, citrus fruityness and bitter herbal notes in taste. I do like this brew, as it seems to be very well balanced on the whole. Leaves one with a slightly bready, floral meadowy and lemony juicy aftertaste. Actually this one was quite a good Belgian ale, liking the breadyness and fruityness in this one.

StueyD (1175) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2014
A pale golden yellow coloured beer with a frothy and thick white head. A light, dusty malt smell, biscuity, then a tropical fruit hop aroma with a hint of spice. Medium-dry mouthfeel. A dry, biscuity malt taste to start, but this is only brief, it is soon taken over by a tangy tropical fruit hop flavour, with pineapple, banana and citrusy grapefruit and lemon. There is a hint of clove and cinnamon spice, reminiscent of a wheat beer. The finish is long, tangy fruit along with the spices.
