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.

Poured a clear light amber with a white head. Aroma of the honey and caramel malt. Medium body, the flavour is overly sweet and a bit cloying.

chromeotaphor (51) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 11, 2014
Ontzettend fris luchtig licht aroma, zoetig fruitig kauwgom achtig. Prachtig helder gouden kleur met champagne achtige carbonatie. Redelijke schuimkraag die langzaam weg trekt. Vrij prikkelend in het begin met veel aanwezigheid van carbonatie. Daarna warm zacht en heerlijk soepel rond in de afdronk door te toevoeging van honing. Tikje te waterig. Lekker anders maar heerlijk. Doet denken aan delirium tremens.

33cl @ bottle. Mi pare di capire che le birre al miele non facciano proprio per me.

A blonde beer with a lovely sweet taste, a result of the use of honey in the brewing process. Pleasant aroma and a good appearance.

Very easy drinking blonde. Like the honey undertones. Blonde opaque with thin tan head smells of toasted malts.

patricks110 (1757) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
A good triepl esque Belgian strong. Pours an effervescent golden blonde with a thick beige head. The nose is with big esters and coriander/clove spice notes. A toasty wheat malt with a crisp and slightly bitter finish. Overall, a heav brew with a nice profile. Overall, a good brew.
