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 decent ale in its class. Blond and refreshening, has the potential to become a standard.

Davros (3028) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2011
Pours hazy amber with a small lasting head. Nose shows doughy yeast and loads of herbal funky notes. A bit weird. Some hints of spices. Similar herbal notes follow through as flavours alongside the doughy Belgian yeast and soft phenols. Carbonation is pretty high, unnecessarily so.

cgarvieuk (23013) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 26, 2011
bottle at home ... golden yellow ... big bubbly white head ... soft grassy yeasy hop nose ... banana and light salty hop flavour ... light dry yeast ... soft fruits ... ok... but not exciting me.

lusikka (7793) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 15, 2011
250 ml bottle.
Pours a golden colour with a large white small head. Aroma of light spices, honey and herbs. Flavour of light spices such as cinnamon, sweet toffee, malts, herbs and mild dark fruits. Medium bodied, high carbonation and a sweet, fruity, slightly warming finish. Too sweet but pretty straightforward and well done.

Palme (4433) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2013
0.25l bottle. This is a near clear, light blurry golden one with a big lasting white top. It smells really classic Belgian this. Belgian yeast, bright candied sugar, green sweet apples, something almost herbal and traces of some canned fruit-juice. Really lightdrinkable, somewhat fruit-sour sweet like glucose. It has a average+ carbonation level and a light oily mouthfeel. Again some light apply thing in the taste with hints of canned peaches. Its actually not all that exciting his, but its not totally boring either. Just a bit generic perhaps? Lightdrinkable and definitely a Belgian taste over it. 16.05.2013

visionthing (5079) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 24, 2013
From bottle at a tasting at Bar & Cigar. Almost clear golden with a white head. Fairly mild fruity and yeasty aroma with spices, malt and hints of hops. Moderate sweet, yeasty and fruity with some acidity and bitterness. Well balanced. Nice and easy drinkable Belgian ale.

Japalo (1871) - DENMARK - APR 29, 2014
[email protected] One finger foam. Banana yeasty notes. Smooth dry. Good carbonation. Slight tarte. Fine not very complex brew.

nathanvc (334) - 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.

omhper (24525) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2002
Bottled. Mustard yellow and hazy with creamy head. Flowery arma. Clean and plain, much less hoppy than their 10. Notes of vanilla, low bitterness.

bierkoning (12995) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2003
Big frothy head. Gold orange color, cloudy. Just a hint of citrus, some hops and some yeast both in aroma and flavor. Orange with just a bit of caramel. Dusty and an upcoming winey flavor.
