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.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAY 9, 2008
Cear orange with a fine sized head. Very sweet, fruity, estery aroma. The honey flavour is restrained at first, builds towards the finish, like the aroma the flavour is otherwise fruity and estery. Soft texture but overly carbonated. An ok beer, quite flavousome but feels unbalanced.

Interesting looking bottle purchased in US. BB4 04/2009. Fluffy head. Amber. Aroma of dirty water, grass and soap. A lively spice tingle on the tongue. Soapy sour flavour. A citrus touch. Belgian zest. A melon taste that keeps building.

330ml bottle (William K Anankatu, Helsinki)
Rich gold, soda head. Soft honey aroma and caramelly too. Later there’s banana in there as well. Fizzy palate. Honey and almond taste. Feels softer and more mellow than I remember. A little alcoholic, but not unpleasantly so.

agl108 (1101) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2008
11.2 oz. bottle at Flat Rock Saloon. Poured slightly hazy orange with nice white lacing. Lots of honey and coriander flavor with oranges and bananas evident. A bit spicy. Seems more like an amped up wheat than an actual Belgian Strong Ale.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2008
Gets boring really fast. Looks like a Belgian, cloudy gold, small white head. Nose had notes of fruit and maybe yeast, b but pretty quickly all I could detect was honey. Moderate and average mouth feel. Taste of honey, followed by strong sweet spices (I got a lot of cinnamon, even though the description is more coriander and orange peel). And then just honey again. Not unpleasant, just boring.
