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.

MiP (15183) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - FEB 29, 2008
Bottle, 8%. Perfumy, flowery aroma. Seemingly clear amber colour. Small white head. The flavour is a little sweet with flower and soap notes which might come from hops. Gets a little plasticky. Slightly rough bitterness.

kidmartinek (4572) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 20, 2008
Pours a light cloudy orange color. Smells sweet like wheat and spice. Has a good honey flavor and is very malty, but not overly strong. Medium/light lacing on the glass. A little bite comes out inthe finish. No alcohol taste for 8%. Nice.

this is, together with westmalle trippel (if I’m having bitter day:)) my absolute favorite beer. The strong taste, followed by spicy and honey aroma’s, ending in a bitter/sweet finish is like a feast in my mouth. I also like the appearance when it’s served in it’s original matte-glas glass

bhensonb (13826) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 30, 2008
Sweetish honey and spice aroma. Deep golden color with a white head that just ringed. Medium body with creamy/fizzy carbonation. Flavor is a bit funky, with hop, spice and arguably honey. Not very sweet. Rather dry. Spice comes up at the end. Tasty. Complex. Confusing. Good ale.

Drake (11499) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 29, 2008
Bottle. Amber colored with medium fizzy head. Aroma of honey, banana and spice. Complex taste, as I get bitter, tart and then sweet, in that order. The sweetness works... unlike some other honey beers I’ve had.
