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.

yespr (30747) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2008
ZBF2008: From tap. Pours clear and yellow with a dense white head. Light herbal/butterish aroma. Flavour is mild sweetend and with a light herbal touch. I don’t really sense honey here but guess it is in the herbal notes and the sweetness. Ends mild spiced and caramel malt lingering.

Ungstrup (29134) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2002
A light amber beer with only a slight head. It has an aroma of fruit as ales often have. The flavor is slightly sour and that of ale. An OK beer.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) If you expect something sticky and sweet from a honey beer, this proves you wrong. Pale golden (honey golden?) with an average white head. Some fruity, spicy notes in the rather full body. Slight bitter finish. Decent although not overly exciting. 161296

omhper (19218) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2004
Bottled. Cloudy golden with a lot of sediment, no head. Yeasty and honeyish nose. Sweet and mild deceivingly soft for such a strong beer. The flavour consists of layer after layer of honey. Special and quite tasty, but one-dimensional.

2012-05-15, draught at La Cervezateca, Torremolinos, 7-4-8-4-15=38
In a warm late spring night, with honeyish mild sweetness and soft Belgian character, with correct bitterness this beer drinks like a charm.

2004-11-16, bottle, 7-4-7-4-15=37
Beautiful golden color and creamy head. Sweet aroma, a bit floreal more than honeyish. Good taste (some malt, hop, candi). Not exceptional, but pleasant. Filtered?!?
