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.

Leighton (22329) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle at the Cafe Rose Red, Brugges. Pours light, hazy yellow with a thick, white head. Sugary malt nose with hints of orange citrus. Medium sweet flavor, some metallic bite, light candi sugars, moderate hay bitterness, faint alcohol, dry caramel. Medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Lightly warming to finish with moderate, yeasty dry dough malts, light bitter straw, faint dry citrus and caramel. Nice.

rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 2, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2004 Golden, somewhat hazy. Has a fresh aroma from citrus and oranges, some yeast and dough. Flavor is hoppy and quite strong. Some alcohol comes through, and the beer has a long finish.

chrisv10 (18518) - DENMARK - DEC 30, 2015

TBone (18228) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 2, 2010
Bottled 25cl (BB 04/2012)
Slightly hazy golden color, good off-white head. Aroma of fresh herbs, rubber and lime peels. Quite light, watery for being 6% brew. Crisp. Flavor is similar to nose: lime peels, flowery - elderflowery herbal flavors, dry finish. Refreshing but simple.

2.7
yngwie (17237) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2011 Bottle. Unclear, golden body, and an off-white head. Spices, pale malt, some sugar and grass in the aroma. Nice, but a bit boring. Grass, pale malt, spicyness and some hops in the flavor, finishing dry and spicy. Medium body. A nice beer, but the Malheur 4-10 are growing a bit boring on me. Rating: 6-4-6-3-13-3.2. 070928

Bottle. It pours a hazy, golden body and a minimal-sized off-white head. Belgo-style fruity aroma with sugar and a hint of cellar. Slightly citrusy flavor, some pale malts and a faint hint of cellar. Medium body, citrusy, malty finish. It drinks easy, but is almost as boring as an industrial pilsner. 110107

FatPhil (17080) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 6, 2008
330ml bottle (Poirotti, Helsinki)
Pale cloudy orange, healthy tight head. Big tomatoes and then honey aroma. A touch perfumey. Very simply sweet plain light malty body. Quite dull, actually. Nothing actually wrong with it, but no guts, no highlights, no bite. I want more of a crisp hop component to my blondes.

Golden colored beer with a white head. Some bread and sugar sweetness with a mild spice and pear note. Some hints of straw, a touch of yeast, and some hints of apple. Tastes sweet and lightly malty.
