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.

Flavours are sweet and spicy, but the beer is fresh and full as well. Easy to drink, on any occasion.

Fules (321) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAY 8, 2016
Szép nagy hab, ami fél perc alatt fél centire apad, ez viszont már sokáig megmarad. Finom fűszeres illat, amiből határozottan kitűnik a méz, gyenge narancsos beütéssel. Gyönyörű borostyánsárga színe van. Határozottan testes sör, mégis nagyon itatja magát. Ízében is az édeskés, mézes jelleg a domináns. A háttérben persze ott a komló fűszeressége, ami a közepesen hosszú utóízben kicsit erőteljesebben megjelenik, egy gyenge keserűsséggel egyetemben.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.
