In the glass it's a light-brown color with a fairly large off-white head. The honey comes through in the smell and taste; it's like the best kind of blonde or white, but with a bit more flavor packed in than usual. There is almost no bitterness. Highly carbonated.

I strongly recommend Barbar.

3.65/5  rDev -6.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Golden and honey like in appearance. A thick head of large bubbled foam floats over the beer retaining itself nicely and leaving streaks of lacing down the sides of my tulip. Some bits of sediment are visible.

S: Sweet smelling. Not too much ABV on the nose.

T: Sweet malts. Really to do this beer justice leave it out of the fridge for a while and let it warm. The honey becomes a bit more present and a bit of bitter Curacao also peaks its head out. Sweet malts are also available , I'm assuming some kind of pilsener malt. Hops profile is low and only comes though as bitterness although slight but provide good balance.

M: Ultra Ultra dry. Perhaps among one of the driest beers I've had. I can assume this is due to the honey seeing as it is highly fermentable and leaves a fair amount of alcohol with little residual sugar. This is not to say the body is too thin , which it's not. High carbonation typical of a Belgian is definitely there making the beer even more refreshing.

O: A pretty good beer overall. I would drink this again if the price was right but not really something I would hunt down.
