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.

readbaron (78) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Crisp golden beer with plentiful white foam. Aroma is unusual - a touch astringent, some alcohol, spicy clove yeast, and a touch of malt. Flavor is more mild. Cloves, some orange, a touch of bready yeast, some bittering hops and honey on the finish. Unusual and well put together beer.

Birra dal color giallo paglierino.Schiuma bianca e non troppo persistente. All’olfatto leggermente fruttata. Al palato è dolce dove la sua caratteristica principale è il miele che si equilibra con l’aroma del luppolo. L’ alcol è ben camuffato. Birra buona da gustare con dessert e aperitivo.

33 cl. bottle. It has a clear honey color along with a huge white head (the second pour was a bit hazy because the sediments finally entered into the glass). Very fizzy. Aroma is honey, fruits like pear, apple etc. It smells sweet, quite a dizzy sweetness. I liked it. A complex aroma indeed, it also includes biscuits, sugar candies, and ripe bananas. There are floral notes, too. "A taste of honey, tasting much sweeter than wine." Actually, I am not kidding. I REALLY liked the full taste. It’s mostly sweet but well-balanced with a subtle bitterness and a very light sourness. Savoury. Even though I can feel the alcohol in the taste, it doesn’t bother me that much (it usually does bother me). It is full-bodied, I guess, and its texture is creamy. Carbonation feels average. Finish is long and pleasant. Wow. It’s a bit tiring though. I think this beer is really good. Actually, the best Belgian Strong Ale I’ve ever tried so far -- but I warn you, I’ve tried only five of them until now, including this one (and I HATE Duvel).

Donker goudblond met witte schuimkraag. Geur: moutzoetig, honing, wat kruidig, gistkarakter. Smaak: zoet, kandij, honing, wat fruitigheid die doet denken aan sinaasappel zeste. Sprankelende koolzuurprikkel die ervoor zorgt dat het allemaal fris blijft. Volmondig. Afdronk: zoet, fruitig.

Robe blonde, mousse crémeuse, peu persistante. Nez alliant fruits, notes maltées, pointe de miel marquée. Bouche à l’attaque ronde, fruitée et miellée, élégante, agréable et équilibrée avec une belle bulle onctueuse. Une bière bien faite.

buczykij (54) - Limanowa, POLAND - JAN 1, 2017
Barwa ciemno złocista, klarowne. Piana średnio obfita, drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa, biała, średnio trwała, ładnie zdobi szkło - koronka. W aromacie wyczuwalny alkohol ale raczej przyjemny, aromat słodkawy, subtelne nuty biszkoptowa oraz melasy. W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie, lekka słodycz, nuta biszkoptowa. Delikatne rozgrzewanie od alkoholu, mocne wysycenie, średnia treściwość.
