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.

De Landtsheer used to brew the Malheur series towards the more bitter side. Nice, fresh and hoppy brews in a beer country where sweet is/was still the way to go. However the have all received a transformation, just like the brewery itself. They became more and more mainstream. And the Malheur 6 is sadly no exception. Although it didn’t become more sweet, it just is not as fresh and hoppy any more. To bad because I really used to enjoy this beer.

BlackHaddock (6063) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2016
33cl bottle in Brugge on 7th Feb 2016. Slight haze to the yellow body, white head, lasting head. Aroma is malt first, with some mixed fruit esters milling around with yeast and spices. Taste follows the same lines, malty, fruity, yeasty, spicy and slightly floral in nature.

GSAP (685) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2015
Smaak citrus en eigenlijk meer water met vleug citroen, probeer iets anders te vinden wat er helaas niet in zit. Nasmaak bitterzuur, wat droog maar lomp. Kraag is grof en verdwijnt snel. Aroma is manderijnenschil, maar niet heftig genoeg. Veel bezinksel.

10-12-2015 Delft Bah! Hele vieze smaak. Nog nooit zo'n vies blond bier op al neigt het licht naar een IPA, vanwege smaak en lichte bitterheid. Troebele oranje kleur met veel schuim. Smaak valt echt tegen en is zelfs een beetje zuur.

25 cl bottle at home. Pours unclear golden with medium, white head. Aroma: caramel, malts, herbs, citrus and a musty note. Taste: medium sweetness with low bitterness. Finish has citrus, musty and earthy notes. Texture is thin, but a little oily. Carbonation is lively. Lacing is good.

Bottle from Belgian Beer Factory. Pours clear pale golden. Nose is lemon, citrus fruits, light herbs and spices. Taste is herbs, light spices, lemon, bitter, dryish and some yeast. It is not refreshing and quite far from the best ones of the style.
