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.

Nice little blonde... Almost feels like a mini-Fin du monde with an added twist of honey. Not bad...

Fantomas23 (463) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 21, 2006
I, and not my wife, ordered this one. I was surprised at just how much honey I could taste. The sweetness and freshness of the honey made the beer different and it probably helped that I had this one in place of dessert at De Beiaard.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2006
Bottle (from Bitter Virtue). Spicy alcohol, sweet malts and enjoyable fruitiness. Not a huge depth of flavour but fairly drinkable for a strong beer.

Bottle. Golden with a small dense, white head. Along with the fruity notes, I also picked up some vingar in the aroma. Sweet, alcoholic and pleasant.
