COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled conditioned. Keg: Filtered.
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.

fhoublon (312) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
Bouteille de 330 ml. Dégustée le 14 octobre 2007. Bière blonde dorée légèrement trouble. Mousse assez, col crémeux assez compact. Très très effervescente, bulles fines à moyennes. Odeur de levure et de miel. Très douce et crémeuse, un peu sucrée, peu amère. Goût de miel présent mais pas trop prononcé. Très bonne en son genre. Manque peut-être un peu de caractère.

thirstyrabbit (1065) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 17, 2014
Small bottle. Filtered golden body, minimal head. No yeast in the bottle. A bit sharp aroma with some sweet honey. Sweet meady taste, uncomplex. The sweetness gets cloying after a while. Harsh carbonation. Kind of industrial and boring.

Abszolút a kedvenc söröm. Elfogult vagyok, mert fontos emlékeim is kötnek ehhez a csodához. Folyékony arany, mézzel és gyömbérrel, ahogy azt a legjobb sörfőzők megálmodták.

ChemaMartinez (14) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 14, 2014
Una buena cerveza belga, se nota el aroma de la miel. Se nota la alta graduación que le quita un poco de gracia.

Zwiebel88 (72) - GERMANY - MAY 11, 2014
Leichter Koriander in der Nase, etwas streng. Schöne Kohlensäure und hohe Süffigkiet. Tolle Honigaromen, etwas zu süßlich, leichte Würze, leichter Alkohol. Nicht ganz mein Fall, aber ein anständiges Honigbier.

tricksta_p (877) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2014
Aroma of malt, fruits, and honey. Flavour is more honey, big sweetness, too sweet for me I’m afraid.

Bottle from B Cafe in NYC. Their description of the beer is different from the one here, and I agree more with theirs: "spicy with a smokey finish". Actually the smoke and honey flavors were pretty light, but it was quite spicy - they went a little overboard IMO. Plenty of flavor, but it was a bit harsh.
