COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Malheur Bière Brut "à la méthode originale" is an exclusive rich beer with 11% alcohol by volume, bottled and refermented up to three times in the bottle. Malheur has succeeded in developing a process whereby the yeast is collected in the bottleneck. The yeast is frozen and removed using the "dégorgement" process whereby only the ambient pressure in the bottle is used to force the yeast out again. The result is a refined sparkling beer with a lively head and elegant aftertaste. Beer guru Michael Jackson described Malheur Bière Brut as a new "World Classic", suitable as an aperitif, dessert or digestive: strong but silky-smooth, with a powerful, dry aftertaste, very aromatic, velvety peach and rose, apricot, vanilla, orange, lemon rind, strongly bound and quietly controlled.

Bottle @ Aarhus tasting. Hazy golden with a lasting white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, fruity, light grainy and alcohol. Flavor is quite sweet and moderate bitter. Sweet and moderate bitter finish with warming alcohol. A bit disappointing. 250615

AleRider78 (1471) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2015
Shared a 750ml bottle at Pub Italia with Chopz. Pours an insane amount of foamy, frothy white head. Has a hazy golden appearance. Thick dirty and sticky lacing. Aromas are citrusy, notes of yeast. Flavours are good mixture of earthy and citrus hops, quite yeasty, bready malts. Has a pretty bitter mouthfeel, mainly in the finish with a tiny bit of tartiness on the palate.

Metalchopz (3596) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2015
Shared with PaleAleRider at Pub Italia. Best before date is 01/08/2015 with a 11% ABV. Pours a cloudy yellow colour with a warm cap, great retention and some foam lacing. Smooth Belgian yeast aromas over bread malts, mild spices and lemon citrus notes. Nice bitterness and very light tarty mouthfeel. Flavours of beautiful fruitiness with grass and hints of sugar. A very nicely-balanced Belgian Ale that is worth savouring... taking your time.

RW80 (2844) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 8, 2015
0,7 l bottle shared
Appearance: A golden body with strong bubbles. On top there is a very big white head. The head colapses with quite some lacing.
Aroma: grainy malts, fruity esters, some lemon and honey.
Taste: moderarte sweet grain, fruits, honey, herbal-grassy hops.
Medium body, strong carbonation, boozy feeling (not there in the taste.)

Champagne beer ? Well it copied the carbonation and the fruityness with the hidden alcoholic boozy part, but aart from that the taste is just another Belgian Ale.

tlind2 (1799) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 2, 2015
Bottle. Cloudy golden color, fizzy white head. Pleasant and fairly mild aroma with notes of flowers, butter and a cellar. The flavor hides the high ABV and comes out as an easy-going Duvel. Medium-full body, medium-high carbonation. Nice, though not quite in the league of Deus Brut des Flandres.

ElManana (2079) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - FEB 9, 2015
Bottle at Brugs Bierfestival. Nice smooth, soft, bread, yeast, lemon, grass. Very good beer, wonder why It took me so long to try this. Probably, the price.

Sweet, rich and very smooth. Buttery notes and texture. Tasty but weird. Overall good but not what I was expecting.
