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.

szeli (17) - GERMANY - MAY 12, 2015
Sehr malzig, sehr süß, SEHR alkoholisch. Meiner Meinung nach deutlich zu alkoholisch. Das Aroma ist malzig-süß, auch der Honig ist zu erkennen. Generell leider zu unrund, der Alkohol ist zu stark präsent und überdeckt den eigentlich feinen Geschmack.

Bottle. A sweet aroma, malty, spices and honey. The small white foamy head has a short duration. The body is cloudy and orange to brown. A malty and light bitter taste. The body is medium strong to strong, dry and creamy with a normal carbonation.

브라세리 레프브르 - 바바르 벨지안 스트롱 에일 8% ABV 한국에도 수입되어 친숙하지만 꿀이 첨가된 벨지안 스트롱에일로 여전히 특이한 컨셉. 8도란 것이 믿기지 않도록 잘 넘어간다. 꿀이 발효에 관여하진않은&# https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot

ordybill (537) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - APR 27, 2015
Poured from a 330 ML bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a great honey smell (go figure) along with malt and caramel. Appearance- This is a golden amber color with a thick off-white head. Taste- Fantastic taste of honey and malt. World class flavor in my book. Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation Overall- World Class, that sums it up. It is a "must try" beer.

jjsint (1252) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2015
Bottle at the Masonic Arms, Kirkcudbright. Golden yellow, clear with generous carbonation. Sour lemon and yeasty aromas, but the taste is special: sweet, intensely honeyed with enough of a yeasty/malty backbone to remind you this is a beer, not Pooh’s alcoholic Hunny Pot. Massive but appropriate carbonation on the palette.

sccp1910 (19) - BRAZIL - APR 26, 2015
Cerveja de alto teor alcoólico, 8%, porém disfarçado pelo sabor adocicado, proveniente da adição de mel. Não é das melhores Ales, porém não deixa de ser boa.
