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 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.

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.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - AUG 14, 2007
Bottiglia da 33cl in un bar a Castellina Marittima (PI); colore ramato con schiuma scarsa e poco consistente, aroma fruttato e mieloso, sapore speziato (grazie all’aggiunta di miele e coriandolo, evidenti). A me č parsa davvero ottima.

tomer (2425) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - AUG 12, 2007
Draught. Hazy light brown colour which is not appealing. Light malty aromas, strong alcohol presence and a cloying sweetness, feels as though you are drinking a candy. very dissapointing.

[Bottle from svoger in 2004.] Blond in its profile and then added amounts of honey. Not that bad!

FROTHINGSLOSH (5768) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a pale golden color with a medium sized yellow-white head. The aroma was very sweet with lots of honey and a hint of orange. The flavor was sweet, spicy honey with a spritzy orange undertone. Very interesting.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2007
I personally love mead but this honey beer falls a few yards short of a first down even though the sweet honey element predominates, its backed up by a yeasty watery flavor which seems to muddle it a bit and make it less complex. Easy to drink though with well hidden alcohol.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear golden with a godd sized white head that fades to a ring and leaves some lacing. Aroma of honey, citrus, and coriander. Taste is the same as aroma but has a bit of carbonic bite. Medium full mouthfeel that finishes somewhat dry. Good.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2007
Bottle. Definite orange and coriander on the nose. Wheat and a hint of pine and honey sweetness. Pours rich gold with a small creamy white head. Spicy carbonation gives way to a pleasant orange and honey sweetness. Hides the 8% well. Lively carbonation. Finishes rather dry.
