COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled conditioned. Keg: Filtered.
In 1996, the brewery innovates and launches Barbãr, 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.

Crisp golden beer with plentiful white foam. Aroma is unusual - a touch astringent, some alcohol, spicy clove yeast, and a touch of malt. Flavor is more mild. Cloves, some orange, a touch of bready yeast, some bittering hops and honey on the finish. Unusual and well put together beer.

jjsint (1184) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2015
Bottle at the Masonic Arms, Kirkcudbright. Golden yellow, clear with generous carbonation. Sour lemon and yeasty aromas, but the taste is special: sweet, intensely honeyed with enough of a yeasty/malty backbone to remind you this is a beer, not Pooh’s alcoholic Hunny Pot. Massive but appropriate carbonation on the palette.

sccp1910 (13) - BRAZIL - APR 26, 2015
Cerveja de alto teor alcoólico, 8%, porém disfarçado pelo sabor adocicado, proveniente da adição de mel. Não é das melhores Ales, porém não deixa de ser boa.

Honingbier maar zeker niet te zoet. Lekker biertje maar niet een die ik vaker dan een paar keer hoef te drinken ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mooi donkergoud biertje met een duidelijke honingsmaak. Niet te overheersend.

Now this was nice! Extremely tasteful honey beer (although I didn’t really taste the honey...)

Light amber / honey yellow with medium white head. Mild fruity aroma. Excellently balanced sweet and sour fruity (peaches) taste followed by right amount of bitterness. Mild bitter aftertaste.

PlutonowyMan (81) - POLAND - MAR 18, 2015
Piana drobno p?cherzykowa, w kolorze z?amanej bieli, nie utrzymuje si? zbyt d?ugo, pozostawia lekki film na powierzchni trunku. Aromat niezbyt intensywny, nieco owocowy, nuty jab?ek i s?odycz charakterystyczna dla miodu. Wszystko to do?? delikatne i nie nachalne. W smaku jest tylko miód, ale w ilo?ci umiarkowanej, nie jest zbyt s?odko. Goryczka znikoma taka jak przy mocnej herbacie, z ka?dym ?ykiem na finiszu jest mocniejsza. Generalnie Barbar nie przesadza w ?adn? stron?, alkohol dobrze ukryty, pije si? lekko i z przyjemno?ci?.

Light honey aroma. Clear, brown colour, very little sparkling. Stable head. Heavy bitter and medium sweet taste. Little salty. Thick texture, lively carbonation. Bitter finish. Overall: Full, heavy taste.

nihtila (1356) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 15, 2015
7.2.2014. Tuoksuu ja maistuu belgialelta. Maku on kuotenkin ehkä hiukan liian vahva ja makea omaan makuun, vaikkakin tyylin mukainen.
