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.

De Landtsheer used to brew the Malheur series towards the more bitter side. Nice, fresh and hoppy brews in a beer country where sweet is/was still the way to go. However the have all received a transformation, just like the brewery itself. They became more and more mainstream. And the Malheur 6 is sadly no exception. Although it didn’t become more sweet, it just is not as fresh and hoppy any more. To bad because I really used to enjoy this beer.

Bottle 25 cl. Light yellow, bit hazy with a small white head. Aroma of grain, malts, fruits (peaches). The taste is sweet with an undertone of hops and fruits. Little development in the aftertaste.

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.

Dorato leggermente velato con schiuma fine bianca, discretamente persistente. Al naso note floreali di camomilla si accompagnano a quelle di miele. In bocca invece entra dolce,ancora miele, con fonale amaro e molto secco. Corpo medio e carbonazione spinta.

Bière blonde, agréable et bien équilibrée. Voilà résumé cette Malheur 6, qui sans être une grande bière sera la bienvenue pour un verre de l’amitié. Pas pour des gros buveurs toutefois, car on ne peut que regretter la petite bouteille de 25 cl. En verre, la couleur est blond doré parfaitement limpide (EBC aux alentours de 16) avec une effervescence moyenne donnant naissance à une mousse blanche nappant tout juste la bière. Le nez se porte sur les céréales et notamment le blé avec une point de coriandre ; simple mais appréciable. L’attaque est fraîche sur les céréales, les fruits jaunes avec une pointe de coriandre. La deuxième voit des arômes de pêche et de mie de pain s’affirmer sur une belle arrière bouche présentant un excellent équilibre malt/houblon. L’amertume qui s’en suit est d’intensité modérée mais appropriée à la fois aux arômes et à la densité. L’alcool est quant à lui très bien travaillé (6% Abv) avec un excellent équilibre avec le sucre. Le final, présentant des notes poivrées est malheureusement un peu court. Il n’y a donc pas de quoi en faire un malheur mais cette Malheur 6 suffira à notre bonheur pour une soirée entre amis.

nathanvc (449) - 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.

Alleen gedronken, mooi goudgeel, dikke schuim van gemiddelde duur, ruikt fris en fruitig, smaakt fris met metaal, niet veel bijzonders, geen vervelende afdronk
