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.

Oh, this is a nice way to end thy day. Sweet, creamy and a bit of wheat to it, like a fresh baget. Nice balance, light and beautiful to look through.

Jerre (3272) - Waregem, BELGIUM - SEP 5, 2006
Aroma of citrus, bit yeast, grain and spices. Spicy and dry taste, bit crisp, quite yeasty, some citrus. Cloudy yellow color, big white head. Well balanced, but nice ale.

Happy Birthday Trappist Ale Rules This beers for you. Re-Rate 08/27/02: I stashed this beer away 2 years ago today as the world renowned Beer Expert Michael Jackson said. This beer after aging for a year, or even better yet two years increases in flavor, complexness, yada yada yada.

Well Mikey Baby lets see. The pour is a clear amber, the head is off white, the lace in thick sheets to coat the glass. Nose is deep malt, citrusy, brandyish, a tad or hint of bubblegum, sweet. Front is sweet, the top is light, the finish is quite acidic, very dry, and a nice hop bite, also a hint of fusel alcohol in the moderately bitter aftertaste. Ranks a respectable #280 on my current 1000 beer list.

Difficult to classify: triple? golden ale? something ele entirely? Who knows, but I still really enjoyed this ale. Light, fluffy body and yeasty nose and flavors, and a great bottle-conditioned twang.

Good beer for a hot day. Complex but not over the top. Enough alcohol to satisfy and enjoy many bottles

Pours golden with a medium head. Aroma is quite peculiar with some malts and something sweet I cant put my finger on. Flavor is on the same tracks. Very nice, but impossible to describe.

Bire qui est une blonde de base de 6 % abv refermente en bouteille. Ceci noffre aucun inconvnient, mais le format en 25 cl mhorripile au plus haut point... Certes il sagit de la Malheur la moins forte (encore quon ma parl dune 4!!!) , mais de l nen proposer que 25 cl, on a limpression dune bire pour enfant au berceau Voil, cest dit!! Couleur dor moyen brillant. Clart nette. Bulles trs fines en colonnes bien vives, et mme torsades au dbut. Superbe. Mousse paisse flocons moyens, crmeuse en haut, qui tient longtemps 15 mm. Armes de bl, orge, mie de pain, pointe de figue. 1re bouche soyeuse avec une prise plutt sur des pices douces. Arrire-bouche malte, trs sympa. 2me avec malt et houblon, mais les nuances sont moins fines. 3me qui montre un quilibre malt/houblon, mais sur un niveau moyen. Arrire-bouche assez courte. La longueur entame sur un calibre moyen, et donne un peu dans le mme registre. La levure est un peu sale, et un peu faible. Lalcool curieusement est assez correct (??) La finale ne peut dpasser le niveau, mais la bire est agrable. CONCLUSION: format ridicule en 25 cl, surtout pour une bire 6 % abv, qui dvalorise un peu dentre de jeu cette bire... Parfois, je ne comprends pas du tout les ides marketing de gens qui sont supposs avoir tudi le march ... Pour le reste, on a un breuvage correct sans autre considration.
