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.

Bottle - Orange /haze yellow body with a huge head which goes away quickly but leaves a nice lacing. Nice combination of sweetness (from the added honey) and hops, really complex and refreshing beer.

Komt honingzoet binnen, daarna een flinke bitterheid over de hele tong. Zoet en bitter strijden om de overhand. Bitter behaald een tintelende overwinning in de ietwat droge afdronk. Honing en hop zijn mooi balans. Niet fruitig, wel bloemig.

Pours a clear golden golden yellow with a lofty white head. The smell is brown sugar, honey, fruit, rich and toasty malty. The taste is the taste follows...rich, fruity and malty. Medium body with average carbonation.

langeveld12 (292) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 16, 2015
Pours ana verage frothy whitebhead. Body is clear yellow and sparkling. Aroma contains moderate malts (straw, caramel), light hops (spruce, orange), light yeasts (dough, horse blanket) and banana, grape, raisin, cherry, honey, forest fruits and vanilla. Flavor is light acidic, then light acidic and sweet, followed by sweet, sweet and light bitter and finishing in light bitter. Body is medium with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Unbalanced, way too sweet, not much complexity. Not for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Barbar uit de fles. Mooie goude kleur met een fijne bubbel. Geur is honing zoet. Smaak mooi zoet, niet te zoet. Met honing tonen. Smaak blijft mooi aromatisch hangen

jamaty (1162) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 13, 2015
Bonito color miel, turbia. Miel es lo que lleva en la receta, y distingue también su sabor, espléndido. Aroma suave, no muy marcado y algo alcohólico. En boca muy agradable, con buen cuerpo, el trago deja pronto un gusto dulce en el paladar, bastante peculiar, en el que aparece esa miel en un conjunto que recuerda a un bizcocho borracho. Alcohol disimulado pero presente y final amargo. Notable.

guzgorog (451) - FRANCE - MAY 28, 2015
Blonde relativement limpide, mousse blanche abondante. Nez de miel bien sûr, notes boisées. Le miel domine en bouche, le malt et la levure restent en retrait alors que l’alcool est bien présent. Bière au miel très interessante toute en rondeur, et étonnament peu écoeurante comparativement à ses consoeurs.

Wanderings878 (37) - ITALY - MAY 26, 2015
Bottiglia. Colore dorato, ambrato lieve. Tre dita di schiuma con media durata. Aroma di miele e malto, più una lieve nota fruttata e caramello. Gusto ben bilanciato, sempre miele, contrastato da un finale amarognolo. Media carbonatazione. Interessante.
