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.

KyotoLefty (9982) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 1, 2010
250 ml bottle. Medium gold color with a low head. Malty, fruity aroma. Plums and pears. Light pilsner malts. Also something slightly hospital-like. Or paint thinner. Some hops in there too. Malty, sweet flavor. Rich cereals. A bit fruity. Grapes. Rather dull, but drinkable. Smooth and inoffensive, but not really sure what they are aiming at. Needs more hops for sure to be a good Belgian style light ale. It may be a bit too old, though. Drink by next Oct., but that means a few years past its best hop flavor.

dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 31, 2010
Golden pour, medium soapy head, quickly dissipates. Aroma of malts and sharp hops, some lemon/orange peel. Full hoppy aroma with fruit and spices, lots of carbonisation. Quite sharp.

piscator34 (2408) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 25, 2009
Bottled sample via lubiere. Blond in colour with a bit of haze and strong carbonation. Aromas are of pilsner malts, damp earth, yeast and mild sweet citrus. Sweetish pilsner malts and apricot lead the way in the mouth along with notes of herbal+earthy hops, wildflower honey and spicy yeast. Light bodied fruity finish. Fading a bit, but some life left. Not bad overall

Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2009
From bottle. Sweet pilsner malt aroma with a lot of citrusy and slightly acidic tang in the nose. Good hoppy quality, with some yeasty esters and mild gaseousnes. A bit of bitterness, too. Hazy medium yellow-amber, topped with pillowy foamy white lacing head. Medium bodied with heavy carbonation, fizzy. Starts fairly sweet with light pale sweet malty flavor, sugar, mild citrus acidity, yeasty funk, and a bit of hop bitterness. Light spicy notes, too - a bit of clove. A bit heavy on the tongue but really drinks easily. After is sweet and a bit fruity with some residual bitterness and a bit of chalky character. NIce Belgian ale.

pivnizub (10454) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - DEC 12, 2009
Bottle: Hazy, pale golden to golden, small foamy layer, lazy carbonation; shy sourish-fruity nose with a hayish-hoppy background; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied; gets much hoppier and more spicy towards the dry bitter-tart (and fruity) end. Weak overture, pleasant finish.......

Eructoblaster (4101) - 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.
