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.

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.

Zlotta (3499) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2017
0.33 l bottle from 'belgiuminabox.com', best before December 2017. Clear, amber with a thin, frothy, almost stable, off-white head. Sweetish-malty, quite spicy, slightly yeasty and a little fruity aroma of caramel, honey, coriander, some clove and hints of citrus. Quite sweet, malty, rather spicy, slightly yeasty and a little fruity taste of caramel, lots of honey, coriander, vanilla, clove and a touch of citrus, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, rather spicy, slightly yeasty and a bit warming finish. Medium body, slightly creamy and moderately effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. A bit over the top, rather heavy on the honey and the coriander, not really quaffable. Not really my cup of tea.

Un peu d'arrière goût étrange ( dû au miel?) Mériterait d'être plus forte. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thellgren (1096) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2017
0.33 bottle @ Leijuva Lahna, Helsinki. I don’t like honey and therefore I don’t like honey beers either. This was more drinkable than the others. Taste is still more close to strong mead than beer and quite sweet. Could be better if it was spiced.

A: Dark amber with a medium white head. N: Caramel, sweet. T: Caramel again. Plenty of honey, but not sweet. In fact, it finishes quite dry. Brilliant combination of flavours. P: Medium O: Loved it!

worldbeertaste (1804) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2017
A common beer found in many pubs around Netherlands and Belgium. Nonetheless a great beer for one of those times where you don’t want to go searching and need something decent.
