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.

thanks to auderale for this one. It pours very pale yellow with a large foamy white head that quickly dies. The flavor is lemony/orangey and its quite the thirst quencher on a hot day (96F/35F)

JoeinDahlem (1478) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 24, 2008
A citrussy, hoppy blonde ale that reminds me somewhat of American pale ales. Tastes like home! Pours a hazy orange with thin, white, lacy head. Nose of orange zest and fresh hops... although the orange could be all esters, rather than hop aroma. Doesnt matter, smells good. Flavor starts a bit sweet but folds quickly into a dry, lasting bitterness. Touch of alcohol showing through, but still refreshing. Nice beer. I enjoyed this more than the bigger Malheurs, which run too sweet for me.

BelgiskOlklub (1070) - Viby J, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2008
Bottle, 25 cl. Average size creamy, white head with excellent lacing. Lightly cloudy, yellow colour. Average/heavy malty aroma of bread and grain. Light hoppy aroma of flowers and perfume. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation and bitter finish. Moderate/heavy sweet flavor and light bitter. One-dimensional.

yespr (42610) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2008
33 cL bottle. Pours slight hazy orange with a huge white and collapsing head. Faint grassy aroma, mild yeasty note and a light citrus fruity note too. Flavour is light citrus fruity with a mild malty base towards a light pilsner grassy flavour. Holds a smooth and light belgian yeast note. Very light compared to the bigger brothers of this brew. Ends with a mild lingering yeasty spice note. Refreshing.

jsquire (4332) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JAN 13, 2008
Straw color yellow beer with a huge rocky white head. Light spicey nose. Sweet beer with some orange and yeast. It is a lighter beer, with the flavors more subtle than most Belgian ales, which makes it very quaffable.

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2008
Pours a cloudy golden color with a thick, frothy, white head. Interesting aroma and flavor of pilsner malt and noble hops with a bitter finish. This feels like a belgian pilsner but I prefer the bohemian pilseners. The body is light and creamy and the carbonation is moderate.

thewolf (12322) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2007
Bottle, bought @ Magasin, Aarhus. Pours a hazy orange with a big frothy, bubble white head. Aroma is malty with light sweetness and fruity zestiness - some clemtines and oranges. Relatively light mouthfeel, rather high carbonation. Flavour is sweeter than expected, with yeast at the back and lots of sweet orange peel. A touch thin perhaps, but avoids (perhaps intentionally) the fruity tartness of many other blondes.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2007
Golden with a huge, white head and good lace. The aroma has light citrussy notes, mostly tangerine. The mouthfeel is very prickly. The flavour is slightly sweet and has a strong note of orange peel. I would like more body in this one..
