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.

Bottle - Orange /haze yellow body with a huge head which goes away quickly but leaves a nice lacing. Nice combination of sweetness (from the added honey) and hops, really complex and refreshing beer.

cattaneopapa (445) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2017
Pours a hazy golden colour with 2 finger of white head. Aromas of banana, peach and honey. Taste matches the aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2017 Nez très agréable sur le miel, bien sûr. Mousse fine délicate. En bouche, le miel devient vite trop présent. Une bière agréable le temps d'un demi.

wilde_joost59 (346) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2017
Uit een beugelfles. Geur vind ik wat minder, iets zoetig, maar niet echt honing. Heldere gouden kleur. In de smaak wel honing. Redelijk, maar voor mij geen topper.

sjogro (5116) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 26, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2017 Bottle at brams. Sweet malt and honey, some citrus and spices, caramel, fudge. Sweet and moderate bitter, medium body and soft carbonation.

2.8
Vells (1980) - Rīga, LATVIA - NOV 24, 2017
Drinkable, but bit boring, some honeyish, floral impact, malty. Moderate sweet all the way. Bit unbalanced

ectuohy27 (1310) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 23, 2017
The honey factor is quite strong indeed--while it hides the abv, it also dominates so much that all the other features, even malt, are drowned out. Drinkable and interesting but not nearly a Belgian highlight (11.2 oz bottle, Brussels)

4.1
barry_batser (14) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2017 Bottle at home. Pours a orange colour with a small white head. Tastes sweet, but not too sweet. Tastes bitter, but not too bitter. It makes you feel warm inside, however, the honey smoothly covers the taste of alcohol. Together with its bottle and glass, this beer is an experience perfect for a cold autumn's night.

Padchenko (395) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 21, 2017
Pours clear Amber with thick white foamy head. Sweet malty strong ale, with clear honey undertones, and a lightly bitter hoppy finish, with honey lingering in the aftertaste. Well balanced and very drinkable.

Moutig aroma, vooral honing en wat karamel met ook een hint naar alcohol en een beetje gistig. De smaak is fruitig, ook wat lichtjes karamel en vooral honingzoet. Ook een kleine houttoets zit erbij en de alcohol is goed te onderscheiden. Het honing-zoete blijft wat hangen in de nasmaak evenals de alcohol.
