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.

Bottle from Belgianbeershop.com. Served in the original Barbar glass. Thick white head that lasts very well. The beer is amber brown. Aroma: clear honey presence but also yeast and fruits are detected. Complex and sweet aroma. The taste is very well balanced and not too sweet as one might expect from a honey ale. Long finish. Barbar is one of the best, if not the best honey ale you can get.

Paladares (71) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 15, 2015
Botella. Color dorado con turbidez muy ligera. Bien de espuma. Aroma: claramente se percibe la miel mezclada con mucho cereal. Algo de vainilla. En boca, entra muy cremosa y especiada. El postgusto a miel es muy marcado, disimulando muy bien el alcohol. Distinta, pero muy interesante.

Turboninja (216) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2015
Bottle@Salhojankadun Pub, Tampere, Finland. Medium sweet and sour, fresh aroma of sweet malts and honey. Golden color with medium, staying natural white head. Clear liquid. Medium taste with sweet malts, honey, hint of sourness. Balanced with medium taste spectrum. Short aftertaste with sweet malts. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall at last a nice honey beer. Too much carbonation.

goudvink (5) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2015 does not count
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.

langeveld12 (293) - 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 (1248) - 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.
