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.

Christos (5433) - Arnhem, - FEB 2, 2013
Small bottle of 250 ml, at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 6%. Pale orange golden in colour, with a huge three fingers head, white and soapy. Very good retention, no lacing around the glass and very little activity in the glass. Not much of an aroma actually, some spices, orange peel and yeast, but all of them faint. On the taste, malty grainess and a fair amount of hops, average bitterness. Too much of the malts flavour if you ask me. As it warms up though, that flavour retreats and others are advancing, like the light citrus flavour for example. Medium on the body with average carbonation. Overall, not a bad beer, but nothing exceptional either.

Diabobale (493) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - APR 12, 2017
Dorato leggermente velato con schiuma fine bianca, discretamente persistente. Al naso note floreali di camomilla si accompagnano a quelle di miele. In bocca invece entra dolce,ancora miele, con fonale amaro e molto secco. Corpo medio e carbonazione spinta.

Bire blonde, agrable et bien quilibre. Voil rsum cette Malheur 6, qui sans tre une grande bire sera la bienvenue pour un verre de lamiti. Pas pour des gros buveurs toutefois, car on ne peut que regretter la petite bouteille de 25 cl. En verre, la couleur est blond dor parfaitement limpide (EBC aux alentours de 16) avec une effervescence moyenne donnant naissance une mousse blanche nappant tout juste la bire. Le nez se porte sur les crales et notamment le bl avec une point de coriandre ; simple mais apprciable. Lattaque est frache sur les crales, les fruits jaunes avec une pointe de coriandre. La deuxime voit des armes de pche et de mie de pain saffirmer sur une belle arrire bouche prsentant un excellent quilibre malt/houblon. Lamertume qui sen suit est dintensit modre mais approprie la fois aux armes et la densit. Lalcool est quant lui trs bien travaill (6% Abv) avec un excellent quilibre avec le sucre. Le final, prsentant des notes poivres est malheureusement un peu court. Il ny a donc pas de quoi en faire un malheur mais cette Malheur 6 suffira notre bonheur pour une soire entre amis.

nathanvc (356) - Brugge, BELGIUM - SEP 10, 2016
Pours hazy yellow with a frothy white head. The aroma contains grass, yeast, citrus, hops and some other fruits. It tastes medium sweet and medium bitter, towards a dry and spicy finish, but balanced by the citric undertone. Medium body, soft carbonation. Decent enough in style, but not as tasty as the big brothers.

Alleen gedronken, mooi goudgeel, dikke schuim van gemiddelde duur, ruikt fris en fruitig, smaakt fris met metaal, niet veel bijzonders, geen vervelende afdronk

33cl bottle in Brugge on 7th Feb 2016. Slight haze to the yellow body, white head, lasting head. Aroma is malt first, with some mixed fruit esters milling around with yeast and spices. Taste follows the same lines, malty, fruity, yeasty, spicy and slightly floral in nature.
