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.

birra rossa con poca schiuma a grana grossolana che si dissolve dopo poco..aroma di lieviti,assenza di luppolo.gusto molto particolare,ben maltato con punte dolciastre di miele che sono effettivamente presenti sia nella parte centrale del gusto che nel retrogusto..sorsate piacevoli e birra che scende giù bene maledettamente!

PlasticSoul (84) - - FEB 20, 2017
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).

Clear beer light brown with dark tints, weak head. Smell is sour sweet, quite fruity and nicely citric. Caramel, pineapple, kiwi, exotic, very, interesting. Taste is full and bittersweet, with light sourness. Smooth lightly bitter citric finish. Delicious.

Hopverdju (958) - BELGIUM - JAN 18, 2017
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.

Ysok02 (1264) - Mons, BELGIUM - JAN 7, 2017
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 (53) - 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.

AssKicker (337) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - DEC 28, 2016
Bue à la pression. Couleur dorée foncée, bien limpide, mousse faiblarde. Nez sur l’amande. En bouche c’est intense, genre abricot/pêche. Alcool bien présent mais partiellement masqué par la rondeur apportée par le sucre moins violent que dans mes souvenirs. Pas mal.
