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.

330cc fliptop bottle. Blonde honey coloured beer. Nose is some malt and honey. It is honey all the way through. Even the mouth feel. Some fruitiness also. Mostly sweet. Very nice bragot.

Honey taste in the beginning followed by the warmth of the 8% alcohol. Not very hoppy at the end. Easy to drink heavy beer.

StueyD (1281) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2015
A mid amber golden coloured beer with a frothy white head. A mildly spicy, fruity aroma, with a hint of wet paper! Dry mouthfeel. A dry, biscuity malt flavour is soon taken over by a slightly tart fruity hop flavour that lasts well into the finish. Tasted at the Delirium Cafe, Brussels. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

33 cl bottle. Pours a dark honey coloured beer with medium head. Smells like honey. Tastes like honey. Somehow it’s so easy to drink and still so interesting that it really is somethin else!

I enjoyed the soft and weak honey taste and the charming orange golden colour. Good beer.

Golden amber in colour that was served in a mug. The aroma was of citrus, honey. Flavour was a little bit sweet, with some malt.
