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.

Dit bier heeft alles wat de Deus Brut des Flandres mist. donkerblond bier met een mooie schuimkraag. Lichtzoet met toetsen van honing en zoete vruchten (abrikoos) tot het florale van vlierbloesems. Heerlijk bier die als maatstaf kan dienen voor de champagnebieren.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2017 From Delh** :: Bière champagnisée >> C’est une bière blonde au nez fort alcoolique qui exhale de fortes senteurs de levure avec une carbonation importante mais subtile. Attaque fort douce, quasi mielleuse panifiée légèrement rôtie fruitée au raisin avec un arrière goût vineux et boisé. Travail intéressant sur les levures associées à l’amertume peu importante mais savoureuse. En effet, celle-ci développe des saveurs aigre-vineuses qui évoluent avec la dégustation sur des notes d’amandes douce-amères, rappelant le Muscat. Finale sèche légèrement acre avec un fort goût de levure. Beaucoup d’équilibre.

Sediment floatin around, hazy gold. Head is huge then dissipates and its not as attractive. Strong sweet yeast aroma of of marzipan, banana, and honey sweet malts. Sugary cough syrup mouthfeel, taste is dominated, similar to aroma, by sweet marzipan and banana, warming booze and dry champagne like fizziness. Finish is dry and surprisingly hoppy. More almonds. Gushed big time, loads of soapy head. Delicious and great for the occasion, my Mom’s 65th birthday, but for some reason I preferred Deus. Exciting, somewhat novelty beer. Even more exciting how its made than the final product, but still a great beer that brings the good times. 11% and you’ll get a head change pretty quick, probably the high co2, but not present in the taste. Special.

Renobob (2063) - Besançon, FRANCE - JUN 5, 2017
Bue en bouteille de 75cl. Grosse effervescence à l’ouverture. Mousse blanche épaisse, bière jaune dorée. CO2 ++. Nez alcooleux, agrumes. Palais corpulent, alcool prédominant, notes de fruits jaunes.

Ysok02 (1957) - Mons, BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2017
Robe blonde aux reflets ambrés, mousse crémeuse, abondante. Nez puissant et complexe sur des notes de fruits jaunes bien mûrs, de fruits exotiques, d’agrumes confits sur un fond de malt et un coté vanillé et boisé. Bouche à l’attaque ample, riche, puissante, un très beau fruit, une bulle crémeuse, de la fraîcheur, de la longueur et de l’élégance qui fait oublier le degré d’alcool. Une très belle belle bière alliant puissance et élégance, à nouveau une bière de repas

Lilja (3595) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 17, 2017
Flaska från Beernavigator drucken med ölföreningen. Smak och doft av honung, tvål, jäst, citrusskal och koriander. Stor, elegant, krispig och kryddig. Blommig, lätt något stram trots tydlig sötma. Bra champagnealternativ. Mycket gott!

Lore (3023) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 31, 2016
hazy pale yellow colour, huge and quite stable white head; aroma of peach, coriander, orange zest, earthy and floral notes as well as hints of vanilla; taste is the same with honey sweetness; great Belgian strong ale!

GoufCustom (2306) - HONG KONG - DEC 31, 2016

750 ml cork bottle opened with loud pop bought at IC Beer in Kwun Tong.

Looks: Clear golden honey colour; Explosive four finger head with lasting soapy white foam; Excellent sticky lacing with very fizzy carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant and sweet malt, with strong orange, strong apricots, peaches, vanilla, honey, bubblegum, floral nectar, sugar, bread, strong Bel yeast, strong wine yeast, strong lemon peels and grass. Great stuff!

Taste: Strong sweet Pils malt, with strong alcohol, liquorices, orange, yellow fruits, floral, sugar, spices, herbs, vinery, strong wine yeast, strong lemon, quite strong bitter hops and grass.

Body: Medium body Quite dry and slick palate.

Mouth Feel: Full Pils maltyness in a solid velvety background, with some champagne smoothness but malty all the time. Hard-hitting booze and liquorices come first followed by orangey ester and floral. Strong but nice vinery sweetness, pretty spicey and herbal with strong lemon to round. Very nice!

Booze and sweetness: the 11% abv is pretty head on, pretty with accompanying liquorices. Tasty but better go slow if you don’t want to get knocked out quickly. Honey-like swwet taste, strong but not cloying. Yum!

Hoppiness: Floral nectar, strong lemon peels and grass in nose. Spices, herbs, floral, strong lemon and grass in taste; Bitterness – liquorices and hops - is quite strong for a lasting, close to high astringent sweet-bitter finish.

After Taste: Dry. Sweet, very boozy and bitter to mouth.

Comments: Compare to the much hyped Deus Brut des Flandres, this is the real deal - exceptional bubbly head and warming colors, great, lively fruity and honey aroma, malty but white winey taste. Booze is a tad strong, but matches with its strong nature with nice lemony hoppiness. A damn nice Champagne beer for great occasions, and I am glad to have this to celebrate the advent of 2017. Happy New Year!
