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.

Pours a golden yellow. Crisp and light mouth-feel, a sweet brew in which the taste of honey grows towards the finish. Nice aftertaste. Very yummy!

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.

bottle, pours light gold, frothy white head. Honey, malt and light bannana in the nose. Sweet malty body with a light bite in the finish. More spicy than hoppy. Refreshing and drinkable, but not out of the ordinary.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2009 On Tap at Max’s Belgian Festival in Baltimore. One of the best beers we tried at Max’s. Poured a cloudy gold color with a thin white head. Aroma was spicy honey and a bit of cinnamon. Flavor was hone and malt with a really full mouthfeel and a nice round warm flavor. The honey was apparent, but not overwhelming. Nice beer.

kopher (593) - New York, USA - FEB 15, 2009
orange with a bit of foamy white head aroma is somewhat cloying honey and flowers, some malt, orange, and a hint of metal flavor is much better: sweet, but not cloying, and balanced a bit by some bitterness and alcohol bite nice medium body, not overcarbonated finish is mild sweetness

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 14, 2009
Hazy gold color with nice white head. Nose of malt, honey and grains. Flavor is the same, but with yeast and spices...ends with a sweetness that is good for one beer.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2009
Hazy golden in color with a big off white head. Aroma is honey, and is grainy with bready malts, and is somewhat yeasty. Taste is honey, sweet malts- a touch of oxidataion, some yeast. Medium bodied, active carbonation. Finishes with some yeast, spice and honey sweetness. Not much hop character- found it to be a bit too sweet personally.
