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.

TorbenJensen (1490) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2015
This beer raises a white and persistent foam at this blond Belgian. The smell is not much, but there is mostly nothing fruity about the smell, which I also find pleasant. The taste is very light malty and has a finely balanced hint of citrus and orange. The hops is not particularly lengthy. It may seem a little watery. As a whole, I find it quite satisfactory, but in no way surprising.

rdb84 (596) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2015
Orange golden color, medium frothy head. Slightly murky after yeast. Aroma: marzipan infused with a strong yeast presence, citrus notes, some faint cheese and walnut notes. Taste: cheese notes are more present now, otherwise a very standard Belgian blonde. Starts with a slight tang, faint marzipan notes. Develops a tangy medium bitterness with cheese notes. After yeast, the tang is removed and the mouthfeel is quite mellow. Aftertaste is a bit boozy, and reveals citrus.

ChtiBreizh (456) - Rennes, FRANCE - JUL 11, 2015
Light blond with foamy white head. Malty and lightly yeasty. Dry lightly sour and with a bitter finish. Body is quite light, average carbonation. A balanced light blonde that is surprinsgly refreshing for a belgian.

thirstyrabbit (1808) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle. Hazy pale golden body, medium to small head. Sweet yeasty aroma with wheat. Sweet wheaty/yeasty taste. Adequate hoppiness. Alright table beer but a forgettable drop in the vast ocean of Belgian Blondes. Could do with a stronger character. PS: "Malheur 6" sounds like a name for a French rap sextet or a metal band.

250ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Pours hazy gold with good white head. Its a basic blonde, soft, doughy and lightly sweet but its a blonde done well. Gotta love a good Malheur.

bonkiedeaap (721) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2015
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is golden blond with a slight haze and a white head, with very livingly CO2. A fruity scent of orange and pear. A delicate sweetness of candy with additionally the smell of overripe flowers. The taste has a subtle dry bitterness and besides a light fruitiness of peaches. The aftertaste is delicious with elegant bitters.
