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.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2009
11.2oz bottle. Sampled most recently on 12/31/08 at Tria Washington Square West. Best by 2010/10/09. Pours translucent yellowish gold, capped with a big white head. Aroma is very sweet, with notes of apricot, peach, honey, and coriander. Flavor is not as sweet as the aroma, with apricot and peach nectar, white pepper, yeast, and herbs. Spritzy mouthfeel. Not bad

0,3 liter fles. Heerlijk belgisch strong. Het is wel een beetje sterk maar hij verdient zijn punten.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2008
33cl bottle from Sheps Deli (Tampa, FL). Pours a hazy dark golden color with a one finger, foamy white head that settles slowly and laces the glass. Aroma is sweet and wheaty with notes of honey, coriander, caramel, some phenol. Flavor is sweet and malty with notes of apple, pear, honey, caramel, spice, wood, and floral hops. Generally medium body with a slightly sweet floral hop finish.

I tried this beer on December 22, 2008 at "Smokeless Joes" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a pale gold with a thick, foamy, white head that lasted. The aroma was grainy malt, and a little honey. The mouthfeel was medium bodied, with mild carbonation. The flavour was more grainy malt, some milky tones, and a little honey. Nothing spectacular about this one.

It was very delicious! Nice golden body with a stable foamy white head. Spicey aroma with of course honey, fine citrus-orange perfume. In the flavor dominates the honey but over there is a strong floral hop taste with fine malt and yeast. Dry-coriander aftertaste with honey-sweet notes. Fine!

Bottle shared with a friend at Volo. Definitely not along the guidelines of enjoyable. Perhaps it was because I had cozied up to my St. Bernardus Abt.12, but this one was disappointing in comparison. Yeast on the tongue with a touch of mild spices and a bit of sugar.

Dogbrick (10714) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 19, 2008
Bottle at Winking Lizard. This beer pours a hazy light orange color with a medium thin white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing. Aroma of ginger, orange peel and honey. Light body with flavors of spice, wheat and sweet honey. The finish is sweet and malty with a coriander and honey aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

bitbucket (2164) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2008
Bottle, thanks to ILoveDarkBeer. Pours clear dark gold with a lacy white head. Aroma of fruit, honey, maybe a touch of bubblegum? Sweet taste of honey, with a little hint of pepper. Medium-full body and minimal carbonation. A bit of pepper and spice in the finish.
