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.

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

Pours a clear yellow. Medium lasting foam. The aroma is of malts and honey. The flavour is spicy with herbs and honey. It?s well balanced and has a good markee ending.

Bottles from Drinkswell, Ripon and Mam and Dad’s holiday, Belgium. Hazy amber coloured with a sweet spicy, zesty honey and fruity flavour followed by almond, toffee and creamy vanilla on the finish. Very nice.

lello4ever (402) - ITALY - DEC 16, 2015
Bionda con un’ampia schiuma bianca ben frizzante. Aroma di malto e note erbacee. Bevuta molto piacevole con una prevalenza dolce e dei sentori di miele. Carbonazione che sostiene benissimo. Alcol i buona evidenza.

Sympathique bière au goût de miel et de céréales. Très sucrée cependant, elle devient vite écoeurante.

climberbob (334) - Virginia, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Flip top bottle into glass. Dark golden almost Amber. Pleasant malt honey aroma w hints of cut grass. Similar taste w notes of hay rather than grass. Not to hoppy which is good. Very nice drinkable blond. One of my wife's favorites. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
