COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled conditioned. Keg: Filtered.
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.

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - SEP 1, 2007
Bottle, Aikmans, St Andrews. Mid-gold with a big fluffy white head that fades to a thin one. Nice and sweet nose, helpings of honey, with some citrus nose too. Mouth is much more honey-y, with some cinnamon and coriander to note too. Quite nice really, if a little too much honey.

Best by 1/17/2009. The beer pours to a glowing orange golden body with an effervescent carbonation and a tall frothy, lasting white head. Soapy lacing. The aroma is coriander, banana, sweet honey, light oranges. The flavor is heavy coriander, wheat, yeasts, dried oranges, and bananas. Light floral honey. Dry soapy notes too. The palate is nicely carbonated, sweet, and medium bodied.

Kinz (3362) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2007
This is essentially a witbier that has had honey tossed in to boost the body and alcohol content. Medium clear gold with a nice creamy head. Aroma was citric orange, notes of wheat, and sweet honey. Flavor was basically a match, with a note of coriander and spice wandering in the background. Enjoyable.

ekstedt (5626) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2007
Bottle bought at the Bishops Arms, V Hamngatan, Göteborg, Sweden. Pours hazy golden in the beautiful frosty glass (wich does not count in the rating). Tropical fruits in the aroma with hints of honey, along with some earthy and yeasty notes. Decent mouthfeel, a bit too sweet.

Awesome brew. Pours a nice orange color with a big fluffy head. Smells of hops and floral. Tastes super sweet and smooth with notes of hone and hops. Really great and balanced beer.

OldMrCrow (1945) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 15, 2007
Bottle.

Pours a clear light orange with a modest white head; yeast-driven aroma of honey on fresh-cut green apples. The flavor is somewhat sweet, again that honey, apricots underneath, very fruity with a delicious smoothness that goes down easy even on a thirsty palate. Some nice modest spicyness, floral hops on the late end rounding it out with the right element of dryness to balance te whole thing nice.

I really quite like this beer and will certain add it to the Belgian-beer rotation in my fridge.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 14, 2007
Clear orange bronze with a spotty-lacing white head. Fresh, sweet honey and grassy hop aroma has a touch of light fruity esters. Body starts with a mild caramel and honey sweetness along with some earthy grassy spice and a crisp, but thinner, bittersweet finish. Really true to style and enjoyable.
