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.

Stevig bier. Veel smaken aan dit bier maar toch overwegend zoet maar met genoeg ruimte voor andere aroma’s en smaken.

KoNrRiI (1178) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2016

0.33 tap.
A clear, gold color with a small, off-white head of poor retention. Aroma of medicine, molasses, and wet clothes. Taste also smacks of medicine, molasses, herbs, and in this case some malts too - pretty weird. A medium body, a slick texture, and an average carbonation. Finish is long, in fact too long considering how bad it is. Overall the beer is bad, regret the purchase.

Zilverenmaan (19) - Schoten, BELGIUM - JUL 1, 2016
Prachtig, helder bier met complexe gele tinten die helemaal tot hun recht komen dankzij het nauwelijks aanwezige koolzuur. Aroma en smaak verder complexloos honingzacht. Licht moutig. Niet uitgesproken zoet, geen bitterheid geproefd. Voor de liefhebbers.

MelvinKalksma (866) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2016

Aroma:
Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, honey and spices.

Appearance:
Clear/hazy golden/amber beer with a slight/medium off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel and honey; ends slightly/medium dry with spices.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. The spices and honey create an almost perfume like aroma and flavour. I guess this beer could easily be mistaken for simple, but I myself do believe it is not.

Aus der Flasche getrunken (vom Händler des Vertrauens). Goldbraun mit schöner weißer Schaumkrone. Leicht säuerlich in der Nase. Dominant ist der Honiggeschmack, der zum Glück den Alkohol überdeckt.

Cervesa dolça on predominen els tocs acaramelats tant en gust com en aroma. Cerveza dulce dónde predominan los toques acaramelados tanto en sabor como en aroma.

On est sur des céréales, du miel. Pas mal, mais écoeurant (cf. autres commentaires). Finales longues.
