Brasserie Lefèbvre SA Barbãr

What the brewers say

“Brewed to a special recipe, Barbãr uses honey during the mash with the wheat to create a smooth sweetness and floral, acacia-like aroma.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Orange blossom and honey aromas, with a healthy amount of floral and spice. Big honey, wheat, and toasty malt, a bit bready, and a touch of caramel. Possibly some alfalfa-like notes underneath, with some interesting phenol and mild clove, pepper, and coriander.”

Flavor: “Sweet and heavy up front, almost like a braggot or a tripel, but with less hops and more honey. The honey character dries out as you move toward the finish, and there’s a slight burn on the back end with lingering citrus and honey. Some herbal and spice notes that verge on medicinal. Toasty and bready Pilsner malt with a fair amount of caramel, toasty malt, and then some herbal and spice notes. The finish is dry with a bit of warmth.”

Overall: “A big, complex honey beer that’s a bit aggressive and borders more on a braggot than a wheat beer. It showcases the honey well, and the spices support the alcohol warmth.”
