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.

thewolf (12302) - 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.
