In 1996, the brewery innovates and launches Barbãr, ale with honey.
Born of the ancestral know-how of a family brewery, Barbar beer will please you with its malt taste and subtle flavour of honey. It is brewed using water drawn from artesian wells on the site of the brewery, at Quenast, a small village to the south of Brussels. This area is well-known for the quality and the diversity of its beers.
Barbar beer is prepared from a secret and harmonious mixture of barley malts, hops and honey carefully selected by our Master Brewer. The traditional brewing method, associated with our unique strain of yeast, and the secondary fermentation in the bottle, gives Barbar the authentic flavour of a very special ale.

cityzen (101) - FRANCE - AUG 29, 2015
Une bière belge typique, foncée avec de la mousse et un goût d’alcool. Si il y a du miel je ne l’ai pas senti. Je une bière correcte.

Kruspijuegos (17) - Alicante, SPAIN - AUG 12, 2015
Muy original. La cerveza no destaca ni por su apariencia, ni por su aroma. Lo que más sorprende es el gusto a miel combinada magistralmente con una Strong Ale.

lesifflebiere (1508) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 5, 2015
Elle est jaune foncé, presque bronze, avec une carbonatation importante et une texture mince et limpide ; en nez, on note des arômes de fraises, de roses, beaucoup de sucré et de floral. Les touches de miel, véritables ou perçues, n’apparaissent qu’en bouche, avec encore passablement de floral et d’intense pour faire suite. La levure est étonnamment discrète, mais encore faudrait-il qu’elle perce tous ces malts. Une bonne bière.

Cor dourada, brilhante. Espuma boa e persistente. Aroma de frutas e fermento. No paladar cereais, frutas amarelas e mel. Corpo médio. Retrogosto com leve dulçor e alcoólico. Fantástica!!!!

Paladares (124) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 15, 2015
Botella. Color dorado con turbidez muy ligera. Bien de espuma. Aroma: claramente se percibe la miel mezclada con mucho cereal. Algo de vainilla. En boca, entra muy cremosa y especiada. El postgusto a miel es muy marcado, disimulando muy bien el alcohol. Distinta, pero muy interesante.

Turboninja (237) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2015
Bottle@Salhojankadun Pub, Tampere, Finland. Medium sweet and sour, fresh aroma of sweet malts and honey. Golden color with medium, staying natural white head. Clear liquid. Medium taste with sweet malts, honey, hint of sourness. Balanced with medium taste spectrum. Short aftertaste with sweet malts. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall at last a nice honey beer. Too much carbonation.

goudvink (5) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2015 does not count
Komt honingzoet binnen, daarna een flinke bitterheid over de hele tong. Zoet en bitter strijden om de overhand. Bitter behaald een tintelende overwinning in de ietwat droge afdronk. Honing en hop zijn mooi balans. Niet fruitig, wel bloemig.

ThirstyBird (2255) - London area, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2015
Pours a clear golden golden yellow with a lofty white head. The smell is brown sugar, honey, fruit, rich and toasty malty. The taste is the taste follows...rich, fruity and malty. Medium body with average carbonation.
