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.

Courtesy SoLan. The body is a hazy and glowing orange-gold with a small, foamy, off-white head. Runny legging and sudsy spots of lace mark the glass. The aroma features honey prominently, alongside candied orange peel and subtle coriander. The underlying malt base shows sweet and creamy toffee notes. Flavors are again sweet, honey and candy sugar as the staples, with delicate spicing from the aforementioned elements lending depth and complexity. The yeast imparts a creamy, semi-dry feel throughout. Less substantial in palate than one would expect for a beer this sweet, but that is a good thing as any cloying stickiness is avoided. Carbonation is moderate. Not my favorite style, but overall this is a pretty solid brew.

Dark yellow pour with a thick white head. Head stayed around and left good lacing Sweet malty scent. Malts, honey and spices hit the tongue. Finishes with an orange peel taste with some honey and a slight bitterness. There is a bite to the spice and honey mixture that smooths out as you drink it. There is an oddness to the bite in the finish that I can not quite pinpoint, almost and alcohol flavor to it.

Are these people smoking crack? This beer rocks. Cloudy golden clolor. Honey banana aroma. Sweet malty flavor that is a crisp and refreshing and accented by honey and a citrus-orance spicy flavor.

Poured a light orange color with a white foamy head. Aroma was pretty bland, but theres was some spice and fruitiness in there. Flavor was really sweet and a bit thick, i guess due to the honey. Very cloying and too sweet.

Bottle from Foodery. Straw yellow color with a little orange and cloudiness. Moderate head. Nice warm honey aroma that mixes with bready caramel malt. Yeast and some fruit on nose as well but I’m missing the wheat. Taste is similar withpepper and honey aftertaste.
