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.

Straling (364) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - SEP 19, 2009
Bottle 33cl. Pours a clear golden colour with a normal size head and little carbonation. Aroma is very sweet and present, has the honey there and some fruits too. The taste started of okay, too sweet for my flavour but still. Unfortunatly after a few sips it got worse and worse to the point where I felt like I was drinking some chemical.

Bottle, BB 1/17/09. Poured kind of a milky medium orange with a short cap of eggshell head. The aroma initially struck me as more of a sweet mead than a beer, with honey accented by floral notes.. ginger and coriander emerge with warmth.. dark, sweet, and intriguing. The flavor also picked up a lot of honey along with pale malts at the core.. peppery yeast laced throughout.. wheat and lemony tartness were quite enjoyable.. finished spicy and tart, but well-supported by the honey. Medium-bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. warm, different, and tasty.

pours clear pale gold with huge white fluffy head and enthusiastic bubbling carbonation. Arouma is pale malts citrus, and honey. Taste is similar, sweet but not too cloying with a bit of an alcohol and hop sting. noticeable but not overpowering spicy notes. Mouthfeel is smooth and light bodied. Nice!

Svesse (8454) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2009
(Draught at In De Wildeman, Amsterdam, 1 Aug 2009) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty, fruity nose with honey and citrus. Fruity, malty taste with notes of orange, honey and a touch of grass. More than medium body, rather sweet. Smooth and rounded mouthfeel. Rather nice actually.

JulienHuxley (5772) - Trois-Rivičres, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 28, 2009
660ml bottle brewed under license by brasseurs RJ. Slightly hazy gold pour. Aroma is spice bomb, yeast and insipid honey a sort of an empty shell sweet smell. Ouch taste is spice with well felt alcohol and a wee bit of sugar there is a bit of fruit towards the end that does sort of put it in with belgian strongs. I would have liked to know that this was a wheat ale maybe I wouldn’t have bought it.

I disliked this brew. The honey was inauspicious but certainly not hidden. The spicy crazy brew flavor was unexpected. The alcoholo was also very visible. I felt that the drinkability was poor on this brew.
