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.

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 20, 2009
Bottle. Poured gold and bubbly with a moussy head. Aromas of honey, flowers, cereal, wheat, and orange muffins with a slight caramel note. Very prominent honey and citrus flavors in a wheaty off-sweet cereal malt base, with some herbal and yogurt essences. A bit sweet for my taste, but OK.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2009
Pours a hazy glowing golden with a creamy white froth. Sweet cloying aroma of honey, crackers, donuts, fruits and spices. Flavor follows aroma, doughy, honey, like a sticky-bun, spices are quite strong but harder to pick out/ define. Medium syrupy body that is a full mouthful, softer crisp carbonation.
