Piana drobno pęcherzykowa, w kolorze złamanej bieli, nie utrzymuje się zbyt długo, pozostawia lekki film na powierzchni trunku.
Aromat niezbyt intensywny, nieco owocowy, nuty jabłek i słodycz charakterystyczna dla miodu. Wszystko to dość delikatne i nie nachalne.
W smaku jest tylko miód, ale w ilości umiarkowanej, nie jest zbyt słodko. Goryczka znikoma taka jak przy mocnej herbacie, z każdym łykiem na finiszu jest mocniejsza.
Generalnie Barbar nie przesadza w żadną stronę, alkohol dobrze ukryty, pije się lekko i z przyjemnością.

(3.75) A: Clear amber coloured with a copper hue and pours with a sizeable and dense head.

(3.5) S: Cloves, wheat, pineapple, apple, honey, and hints of floral. Nice belgian yeast, fruits, and a noticeable honey sweetness present.

(3.25) T: Similar to aroma with pineapple and honey sweetness followed by a grain and floral bitterness. Theres a bit of an odd/off taste here and I can’t narrow it down – it may be the clove/floral combination or yeast as others have noted.

(3.5) M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a creamy, oily mouthfeel.

(3.5) D: This is decent and it does get better after a glass or two, perhaps as it warms. There is a bit of an off taste though and the alcohol is noticeable.

650ml Bottle

Appearance – Hazy yellow colour with a large size fizzy white coloured head. There is a below average amount of carbonation showing and there is some fairly good lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes before it was gone. There was also lots of yeast floating around the beer.

Smell - Wheat, bananas, lemons, coriander/cloves

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an average amount of carbonation. I can taste bananas mixed with some lemons and a coriander/cloves spiciness. I can also pick up on the alcohol and a touch of a honey sweetness. It ends with a lemon/banana tart aftertaste.. that also comes across as medicine like for some reason.

Overall – The scent was definitely the highlight of this beer, very pleasant. It had shades of a Unibroue beer but in the end it fails in comparison. The flavours just need a little bit of work to make this a truly great beer. I wouldn't buy this one again, but it wasn't a waste of money either.
