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.

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.

worldbeertaste (1803) - 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.

En botella. Color dorado muy brillante. Este tipo de cervezas suelen pecar de empalagosas, pero en el caso de Barbar, posiblemente su alto grado de alcohol, no se tiene esta sensación, dejando un buen retrogusto.

WaddlingPlatypus (186) - Durham, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2017
330ml bottle at the Post Office Vaults, Birmingham. Clear carbonated gold with a foamy white head. Sweet grain and honey aroma, with a faint touch of alcohol. Distinctly more palate when first tasted, less sweet than the aroma and more grainy. Pleasant, slightly thick mouthfeel. Microscopic floral notes.

The glass & the 33cl bottles are really classy. The beer tastes really good and you can clearly taste the honey!
