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.

bhensonb (15336) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 16, 2010
Bottle at Cambrinus in Bruges. Pours gold with a white head. Nice fresh fruit smell and flavor, but there’s some herbal hop. Light and pleasant.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2010
Shared this one w/SkyCop32. Pours a medium golden yellowish color. Aromas of fruit, yeast and some pepper. Flavors are sour, yeasty, and a touch of sweetness at the finish.

Bontus (800) - Flanders, BELGIUM - FEB 4, 2010
On tap, (beer of the month), Pours pale golden, thick white head. Great drinkability. Medium bodied, good for this low ABV. Well balanced.

KyotoLefty (10311) - 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.

3.1
piscator34 (2539) - 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 (10662) - Bochum, Porúří, 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.......

4.1
ralphdot (1094) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2009
Bottle conditioned, cloudy gold with good head, sweet fruity aroma, hoppy fruity taste, nice.
