Hangover (1134) - oxford, Georgia, USA - SEP 7, 2007
Hazy gold color with a nice sized, frothy white head. Lemony, yeasty aroma with hay/grass and very light spice. Nice big carbonation with substantial body. Very warming initially, with honey-like sweetness. Towards the middle, some bread and yeast become evident. Finishes with spice, banana and while the alcohol is warming, it’s not distracting at all. Nice! after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - SEP 6, 2007
12-oz. Pours crystal clear golden with a towering, sudsy platinum blonde head. Big lemon and grass nose, a little bit of green apple there. Medium body, tingly carb. Lots of bread on the mid-palate, along with those lemon and grass notes. Bitter coriander finish. Lovely stuff. badgerben (5124) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 4, 2007
Gold color with a medium head. Aroma of sweet yeast. Big, chewy, bready flavor with a little coriander finish. Beautiful. thegreenrooster (4373) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Pour is a hazy yellow with a active white head. Aroma is very nice with lots of fruits like apple, lemon and banana. Flavor is very rich with lots of carbonation. Lots of lemon and hops with some spice and honey. A very tasty ale from Belgium. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

750 bottle purchased at Liquor Max in Loveland, CO. Pours sparkling and hazy yellow with a huge frothy, white lasting head, excellent lacing. Aroma is average malt (grain, hay, straw, meal), average hops (herbs, grass), average yeast (barnyard, earth) with notes of light alcohol and dust. Medium bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation and a bitter finish. Short duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness. ChainGangGuy (4894) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - AUG 25, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2007 Appearance: Pours a hazy blonde body with a huge, long-lasting white head.
Smell: The bright aroma is flowery and certianly lemony, but there’s also a pleasant yeastiness to it.
Taste: Initially, a sweet pilsner malt taste with a light, honeylike sweetness and notes of zesty lemon and apricots. Only very minor hints of banana and apple. A nice hit of spicy, peppery hops along with a hint of ginger in the finish. Lemony, hoppy aftertaste. Oh, and with each sip, the beer grows evermore spicy and warming.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Moderate carbonation. Nicely warming.
Drinkability: For a 10% abv brew, this beer goes down exceptionally easy. Especially in the middle of August. jefcon (1833) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2007
A beautiful orange color which glows in the glass, topped by a foamy, uncontrollable head with ample lacing. Aromas are a bit cidery, with apple, herb, pepper, and hay. Rich on the palate, as advertised, with an aggressive profile of drying alcohol, pungent hops and rhubarb behind tight carbonation. A good example of the style, very strong, but with delicate touches that show craftsmanship. rajendra82 (1078) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - AUG 20, 2007
I just love the way Belgian Strong Pale Ales come out of the bottle looking all foamy, begging me take a sip before I can finish typing up notes on how they look. Malheur 10 had that classic Pilsner float appearance down pat. The aroma was mild with a lemony and floral scent promising a subtle puch to come, so on to the first sip I went. The taste sweet, tart, earthy, and a little more bitter than anticipated. There was a lot of interplay between the dry, fully attenuated malt, the dusty yeast, and aged hops. The peppery hot alcohol was a lot more up front than the likes of sneaky Duvel, and there were no pretensions on this being a beginners drink. Mouthfeel was medium full and warming. This was a classy golden ale all the way. I will now be picking up more of their offerings, as one 330 ml bottle just won’t do. jrob21 (3663) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 10, 2007
On the golden side of the belgian strong spectrum. My first impressions are of a spicy, malty and wheat experience. As it warms, the sweetness sets in. Nice spicy aroma. Smooth syrup and slight licorice flavor. Full bodied with some citrus flavors to finish. Honey is a great word to describe the flavor too. Getting some cloves and a hint of banana.
