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.

A good "session" Belgian pale. Pale hazy gold, good firm head, good lacing. Nose of citrus, yeast, bread. Taste of citrus and yeast with a spicy finish.

Gangstergafje (1358) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2017
15-06-2017; bottle; at home. The looks of the beer are quite nice. The color of the beer is a nice golden yellow. The beer has a nice silky look, because of the nice cloudiness. On top of the beer a nice layer of soft white foam is formed. Foam retention is quite good. The smell of the beer is nice. It is a nice Belgian Ale smell. It is spicy, robust and bold. I smell some nice malty aromas at first, giving a nice sweetness. Besides this, there is a lovely fruity aroma. I smell some orange, some zest and touches of koriander and other spices. There is also a floral touch. The floral and coriander touches seem hop derived. I like those hoppy touches. Pairs lovely with the malts. The taste of the beer is also nice. I taste some nice malty base tones, with some fruity flavours. I also taste nice bitter hops, with some zesty citrus and floral flavours, with a touch of spiciness. All is very well balanced. I like it. The palate of the beer is nice. Medium body, smooth and a nice medium carbonation. The finish of the beer has a nice fruitiness, together with some bitter hops and a spicy touch. All in all, a lovely beer. Traditionally Belgium, but with more power and kick. It isn’t stuck in tradition, but leaves room for development. I love it. Great work.

Cristobal37 (1290) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 8, 2017
Bottle. Pale blonde. Aroma is malts and damp cellar. Crisp beer, refreshing, green grapes and drying quality. Palate is oily hops. A decent blonde, not terribly characteristic, but enjoyable nonetheless. It’s good, but not as remarkable as it’s big brother 12 or the Biere Brut.

heykevin (1287) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - APR 15, 2002
This beer has quite a bit of bang for its alcohol content. There is some honey and malty spiciness, but it all comes together with a fabulous crisp belgian yeastiness. Some oxidized hop flavors in the background, but understandable due to expiry date almost 2 years past. Very enjoyable.

3.3
Kåstå (1272) - Mol, BELGIUM - MAR 12, 2003
Clear blond beer with a big white head. The aroma is rubber, urine, fruit and some hop. Light bitter hoppy taste. Rather dry bitter finish. Long dry aftertaste.

3.4
JanEric (1250) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2012
Dark blonde, small dense head. Aroma has some sweets, like honey. Reasoanble bitter taste, some soapy by-taste, medium to full bodied, reasonable finish.
