3.8/5  rDev -4.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Tap

Pours light clear gold, quarter inch of sudsy white head.

Smells of lemon, white grapes, and orange blossom honey.

Tastes of sweet lemon, coriander, white grapes, and grassy malts.

Full body with tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

A very good Belgian ale, but not fantastic. Worth trying but I'd ultimately rather have a Piraat or DT.

My 5.00 rating is because this "beer" is the closest you can get to 'Champagne" without buying Champagne.
The yeast is a similar to champagne yeast, which is what gives this beer the mouth feel, carbonation, and color of a ""champagne", and more appealing than a Freixenet Brut.
The ABV is lower than Freixenet, but one bottle of this will not give you the headache of the average Freixenet.
This IS a BEER. So, don't expect a "champagne". But, it is bottle conditioned, and a splendid brew.
If only there were more like this one.

On tap at Bressi Ranch Pizza Port. This beer is a wonderfully smooth beer for it's alcohol content. The beer's taste is so smooth that I wouldnt' guess it is more than about 8% alc.

It's appearance is true to form - golden clear.
Good amount of carbonation from the tap.
Mouthfeel is smooth with a good amount of carbonation
Taste is of some sweetness - citrusy flavor with a little bit of sweetness.
A really smooth drinking beer - especially considering it's high alc content.

This beer looks awesome when poured! golden in color, big rich head. The beer has an interesting aroma possibly orange zest. The taste is good, fruity and dry. The carbonation is maxed out on this. I am not really into highly carbonated brews and this beer is really carbonated. All in all the beer is a good Belgium strong ale.

Bottom Line: Good brew with too much carbonation.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

This was two years out of date, but it was still one of the most carbonated beers I’ve ever sampled. It poured a thick, white, spongy, overflowing, white head and a hazy, light, yellow golden color, with numerous, tight, tiny, bubble streams, but with minimal lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, bready, sugary malt, with some grain husk across the sniff. Taste is of the same, and there is a strong yeasty, banana zing, with a fairly noticeable bitterness at the back end. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy and mushy, and Malheur 10° finishes mostly dry, rich, alcohilic, fruit cake-ish, and sip-able. Overall, this is just wonderful!

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

From tap to Malheur stemware.

A: Orange-apricot in color, small wispy head quickly dissipates quickly.

S: Clove-laced fruity esters, honey-infused bready backdrop. Lemon-pepper spice livens-up the aromas along with a light hoppy snap.

T: Estery sweetness up front, quickly met by a phenolic undertone and cracked peppercorn. Some orange zest ushers in a slight astingent, earthy hop tone, paired with notes of booze and sweetness. None of the flavors contradict each otber, but ultimately the brew isnt a remarkable quaff. Finished relatively short and dry.

M: Medium-bodied, fairly effervescent, drinkable.

Kind of an earthy, subdued version of the style. Drinkable but not something Id clamor for.

4.64/5  rDev +16.9%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

A: An unrelenting foamy white head with great lacing. Bright gold body comprising strings of champagne bubbles.

S: Metallic and Pilsner like, a bit rubbery like a hefeweizen. Some sherbet.

T: A smooth balance of tartness and sweetness. Initially like an extra strong Duvel but less bready. As it warms its unique character comes through. I get a strong aftertaste of fresh lychees, rambutans and to a lesser extent green grapes. Has that wonderful laquer-like quality that I love in super strong Belgian ales yet the alcohol is not protruding. Not a hint of coriander, thank goodness. It is at times just an incy bit metallic but I suspect it's something to do with the bottle cap. Strangely, towards the dregs it starts to taste like an American citra based IPA, with lots of bitter grapefruit yet it doesn't appear to be bottle conditioned. Unique.

O: With its modest 3.97 BA rating (currently) I see this as very underrated and I doubt my bottle was 100% fresh either, seeing as I bought it on the grey market here in Korea.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

330 ml botle, at home, poured carefully into a tulip glass as not to disturb the yeast.
Very clear yellow golden colour, with a hge head, almost four fingers tall, snow white in colour and soapy in texture. Good retention and lots of lacing left behind.
Aroma is mostly hops, but very subtle.
Nice taste, bitter and hoppy. The alcohol is there, but it doesn't disturb.
Citrus notes on the taste.
Medium thick body, average carbonation.
Overall, this beer is dangerously drinkable, with an ABV of 10% I should be just sipping it, but the taste was so good that made that very difficult.

I am reviewing a beer that's been stored safely since 2008, and it's January of 2014. If ever there was a champagne of beers, this is it. Fruity, zesty, a bit of banana, grape skins and honey. Reminds me of a mead I made back in 1999 (and continue to cellar to this day). Very heavily carbonated, yet with a round mouth feel, two fingers and terrific lacing. Flavors linger and slowly fade on the middle of the tongue. There are some solids in the deep golden brew, but it's mind over matter as this beer warms the belly with the obviously present, yet somehow balanced alcohol. What a treat!

Bottle from belgianbeershop.com - Malheur 10 is clear golden with a thick and stable white head. The aroma is yeasty with fruity aspects (citrus) and with a clear alcohol presence. The taste is very like the aroma. This beer has a fresh character with a bitter aftertaste. The alcohol is very present and dominates a bit too much. Overall a good beer that goes very well with meat dishes.

A - very thick foamy cloud white head. Very foamy. Murky lemon butter yellow. Cloudy with plenty of champagne continued carbonation. Some lacing but not much

S - sweet salt taffy. Pale malt extract. A bit of of lemon zest. Baked sugar cookies.

T - abv comes out but not in an off flavor way. Some sweet esters and maltiness. A good solid showing.

M - fluffy and buttery. No burn despite strong abv nose. Malty.

D - a good but not fantastic example of the style. That still better than most

3.93/5  rDev -1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Persistent, thick and lots of head, as much fingers you like. Pale golden color, a bit opaque.
Aroma full of condiments and fruity, mostly citric and peaches, but not so strong. Good carbonation.
Sweet and spicy flavor. It is hoppy and very malty, and reasonably citric. Yeast, coriander and orange peel can also be felt.
Considering it is 10% ABV, it is quite easy to drink, specially compared to overly sweet malt liquors, that said one can still feel its alcohol content, but they did the best they could. Cannot hide a chubby pal behind a light post…
Hint, it does get much better once it warms up (and not only because of the ABV kicking in).

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

This struck me as a beer of extremes. Interesting, but a little tough to drink.

Like a lot of other Belgians, pours up a monster big head and leaves lots of curtainy lace. Bright gold in colour. A fairly handsome beer.

10% alcohol and smells like it. Very boozy, lots of malt, a whiff of citrus hops. Very bitter on dinking, gives way immediately to big sweetness, and then settles out to long, lingering bitterness. Strong alcohol presence throughout.

Sorry, just lacks balance for me. Too much of a yo-yo experience.

Full golden colour, with a nice big fluffy head. good carbonation.
Smell is a bit faint. There's a bit of spice, but mainly malt. Equal in the taste. With that, there's a big amount of boozyness... hardly a good sign. Alcohol should be covered by aroma and flavour, and here it's not happening. The alcohol is sweet and warming, not harsh. That makes up for something, but all in all this is a boring drink.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

750 ml bottle into chalice, best by 9/2011. Pours fairly hazy and cloudy golden straw color with a nice 2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Some good spotty lacing on the glass, with a fair amount of carbonation streaming up. Aromas of huge lemon, lemon zest, orange peel, apricot, herbal, floral, grass, earth, pepper, honey, and spicy yeast esters. Damn nice aromas with very nice complexity and balance. Taste of big lemon, lemon zest, apricot, pear, pepper, apple, grass, honey, earth, herbal, floral, coriander, and yeast spiciness. Lingering notes of light fruits, pepper, earth, herbal, floral, and yeast spices on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic balance of malt sweetness and spicy esters; with a nice amount of complexity. Medium-high carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a fairly creamy and slick mouthfeel as expected, and fairly crisp on the finish. Alcohol is extremely well hidden at 10%, with only a warming noticed well after the finish. Extremely easy to sip on, with good smoothness. Overall this is a fantastic Belgian strong pale ale(even though I saw this as more of a tripel). Great flavor complexity, balance, and smoothness. Extremely enjoyable stuff.

On tap at The Lab Brewing Company in Agoura Hills, CA.

Pours a murky light orange with an off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain, grape-like fruits, and grape juice aromas. Taste is of grain, grape juice, and spices with an alcohol kick with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but the alcohol is pretty in your face with each sip.

A - Like a beautiful blond with carbonation bubbles racing to the massive white topping. The fluid is gold colored and hazy.

S - A fresh citrus hop kind of smell. Always a pleasure!

T - A strong bitter beer and relatively dry. The alcohol warmth is nice though.

M - A medium carbonation with a real bitter finish. There's no sticky feeling at all and that's a pity.

O - I had expected something extraordinary and special, but this has not lived up to my expectations.

Malheur 10 Ale. Brouwerij de Lantsheer.

Clouded golden coloration, vast head of snowy-white foam, drifts down slowly, leaving lace.

Sweet and spicy aromatics, met with the trademark Belgian funk. Citrus zest aplenty.

Taste: Creamy, yeasty mouthfeel. Lots of fruit and spice at play on the palate. Swims happily in the mouth, then leaves easy as a breeze. Slightest bitterness at work, matches the touch of honey in the taste. Alcohol rises at the end. In other words, " a warm finish."

Nice mix of fruit, spice, and booze. Mmm, hmmm.

Another fabulous Malheur! I let this warm to room temp and drank it over some time. It poured with a huge, off-white, foamy, frothy, fluffy, thick head that lasts quite a while and good lacing. Color is a hazy apricot amber with some particulates in suspension. Aroma is yeast, fruit, malt, spice. Flavor's a lot like nose with fruit on top, then bitter from hop and yeast, followed by carbonic tang. Body is full, rich, and smooth with good carbonation. Finish is like flavor and very slowly tapers off with some alcohol warmth. Great beer for sipping while reading a great book! Or just sipping; what am I thinking?!?

330ml 11.2 Oz. bottle. Poured into my Duvel Tulip.

Appearance: Rich frothy head, close to 3”, hangs around with very sticky lacing.

Smell: Spicy citrus with a bit of sweetness.

Taste: This beer is much, much, closer to a Tripel in both aroma and flavor. Excellent to that style with a spicy sweetness up front with a mildly bitter finish. There is some warmth due to the alcohol but otherwise it is well masked.

Mouthfeel: Creamy smooth and well carbonated.

Overall: Another great example of a Belgian Tripel, this one is a little heavier in the ABV at 10% so that should be respected.

First had this brew in Belgium last year and now, thanks to Bieropholie, I got me 24 of these babies !

Poured about half of the bottle in a regular wine glass, it gives out a hazy golden color with a massive carb rush. Half of the glass is foam. Its just so thick and white..very healthy looking brew, but strongly carbed. The head doesn't fade away, it just sits there forever.

Swirl it and get a boost of C02 up the nostrils, I'm actually shaking the beer to get some carbonation out and actually get some fruity esters. Notes of fresh pears and apples, covered with hints of citrus and coriander. Little scent of alcohol here and there but hey...its 10 ABV.

On the Palate, the carbonation is the first thing I feel, it just covers your whole mouth and then deep notes of alcohol and spices, sort of like an amber rhum, There is residual sugars that builds up the body of this beer. Notes of Tonka beans mixed with fresh figs and apricots, very fruity. Once the carbonation has settled, the aromas are more noticeable. But the alcohol is quite present.
It has a sweet finish with little hop bitterness but very gentle in the end. I think its perfectly balanced on the sweet and bitter side of things. It leaves an alcohol warmth on the palate. Now you don't want to drink 5 of these in a row.It will get to your head !

Overall, great beer, great brewery, loads of fun. This is a classic Belgian strong golden ale..and its well worth the try.
Thanks Bieropholie

750mL bottle, corked and caged, into a tulip.

Very cloudy pale yellowish-golden color with a minimal head and carbonation (although this one has been sitting in the cellar for at least a year). Yeast sediment in the glass despite a careful, slow pour.

Orange and lemon zest, along with a subdued yeasty character in the aroma. Some mild spiciness as well. Almost more reminiscent of a Witbier. Warming alcohol envelopes the palate upon first sip, making it difficult to pick out the lemony twang underlying it. Some spicy phenols in there as well before finishing with a mild bitterness. Medium-bodied with noticeable alcohol.

I'm not quite sure what to make of this beer. Smells like a Wit, tastes like an American wheat beer combined with a Maibock. Very unique, to say the least.

Poured into a large wine glass from a corked 750ml. bottle. Pours a lightly hazed golden yellow with a robust cap of white foam. The airy cap settles to a thick film and tosses off some light lacing, maintaining an artsy film throughout.

Pleasant nose of yeast and some sugar, along with a hint of lemon and a bit of alcohol. Classic for the style though perhaps a bit subdued initially, expanding with warming.

Taste is of lemony bread with a light hop influence. Offers a lingering yet simple sweetness. Pleasant and subtle, flavorful without being overbearing as some examples are as for sweetness. Touch of spice firms up an otherwise lackluster body.

A nice presentation though a bit fetching as for the stalwarts of the style. Nonetheless a recommended brew that improves with warming and exposure. And at 10 percent, this brew offers a solid stealth mode.
