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.

Unique and delicious. Aroma was a bit weak but hints of wheat and yeast come through. Taste is typical Belgian with an emphasis on spice and coriander. The honey is very pronounced but not to the point where it is sweet. This beer says "spring".

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 27, 2007
Fizzy yellow beer with a huge white head. Hints of honeycomb, challah, and coriander in the aroma. Honey flavor imparts a nice sweetness on an otherwise unremarkable spiced wheat beer. I think the addition of honey also tricks you into thinking this beer has a thicker mouthfeel than it actually does. Nothing particularly special here.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2007
A Mes rate: Stunned to discover we had not already rated this and the Winter Bok so we squeezed a couple of quick ones in at ZBF. Cloudy amber coloured with a very white head that settles quickly. Sweet and yeasty all round with a slightly spiced finish. Not the best honey beer, certainly not the worst. So so.

Clear amber. Super floral aroma with belgian caramel malt and pear esters. Clean candy and fruit flavor with a meaty note. Spritzy mouthfeel. Crisp and easy to drink with well hidden alcohol.

Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2007
This warm golden blond has a nice head that leaves nice lacing. The aroma is sweetish with notes of fruit. The flavour is sweet, but not sticky, and the warmer it gets, the more dominant is the honey flavour. The finish is nice bitter/acidic and gives a nice counterweight to the honey.

doubelknv3 (1038) - Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2007
Full body taste is immediate. Honey / Hoppy finish, but not too sweet. This is not a session Belgian for me, I prefer Kwak or Karmellier Tripel. Cheers,
