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.

Chudwick (1791) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - APR 9, 2014
25cl bottle into wrong glass - nose is metallic yeast. Wet bread meets hay. Fairly light for 6% ABV. Slight peppery finish. Did not meet expectations.

Bottle 25cl. Cloudy Golden with a huge white head. Some hops in the aroma. Taste also reveils some pinetree. Quite a rich beer with high carbonization.

StueyD (1070) - 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.

Clear golden color, white head. Sweet, fruity nose, almonds, marzipan, present Belgian yeast. Fruity, malty taste, Belgian yeast. Medium body, moderate to high carbonation.

DwarfeD (701) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2014
33cl bottle at home. Clear golden with a medium white head which disappeared quickly. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Medium sweetness with some bitter tones. Grass, herbs, fruits and some hops. A refreshing blonde Belgian brew.

jmgreenuk (3591) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2014
Bottle at Rootz at the Harbour, Den Haag. Poured a hazy light amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is strong yeast. The flavour is medium bitter with a sharp crisp yeast light alcohol bitter palate. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Very Belgian with that signature yeast. Nice enough but it’s yesterday’s beer.

(Drinking date: 10 March 2014) Clear golden coloured beer with a big layer of foam which disappears quickly. Nice fresh aroma of yeast and fruit, and unfortunately a bit of metal. Nice hoppy bitterness in the taste, but also a bit of that metal taste unfortunately. Also a bit dried fruits in the taste. There is also a bit of a sweetness present. The beer is really refreshing. The mouthfeel is good, and the carbonation just a little bit too much. I enjoyed this beer, but it is not one of the best blonde beers. But it is still good though! That’s why I give it the total score of 3.5

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein leicht trübes goldenes Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch hefig, malzig süß, leicht würzig. Geschmack leicht hefig, fruchtig malzig, Gewürze, blumig.

Finn (3759) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2014
Flaske 0,33l fra Vinmonopolet, bestillingsutvalget. Drukket hjemme 16 Jun 13. Veldig lys gylden. Litt uklar. Lavt skum som flater helt ut. Svakt fruktig aroma. Smaken er vassen. Litt krydder - ellers lite. Litt for mye kullsyre. Kjedelig.
