In 1996, the brewery innovates and launches Barbăr, 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.

Backlog. Tried it bottled a couple of times. Slightly too sweet for me though.

Kita (991) - Koper, SLOVENIA - MAR 11, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l. Cloudy deep golden color with medium creamy off-white head, good lacing and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of moderate toasted malt, strong honey, alcohol and light yeast. Taste starts with moderate sweet malt, follows by sweet honey and alcohol, spicy mouthfeel and low bitter finish. Full body, oily texture and fizzy carbonation in palate. Too sweet for my liking...

Bottle at the Brouwcafe, Scheveningen. Poured a clear light amber with a frothy white head and some broken lace. The aroma is yeast with a little sweet honey. The flavour is medium sweet light bitter with a smooth yeast malt honey palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

minutemat (1349) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2014
330ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Syrupy, corn-like nose with a noticeable honey influence from the off, although generally not too sweet. A slight touch of orange in there too. On the whole, a smooth enjoyable beer although I don’t think Id manage a second bottle.
