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.

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.

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 (838) - 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.

Ljusgul med litet vit skum. Något konstig doft av brödlimpa och smak av honung. Inte min typ av öl!

Belle robe blonde. Peu de mousse, qui tient mal. Arômes de malt et fruits. On sent bien le miel, surtout à l’arrière goût qui est malheureusement un peut court. Carbonatation fine. Une assez bonne bière au miel.

No hop and kind of boring and small after taste. But pretty smooth, no head on the beer at all

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.
