COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Style
Biere de Mars is a centuries old, French farmhouse seasonal brew. Released every March and traditionally crafted with the farm’s freshest crop of barley, wheat and hops, these brewers spent months aging what was considered their finest beer of the year.

Story
Bayou Teche Brewing’s Courir de Mardi Gras is our artisanal version of this French ale. Biere de Mars is historically crafted with Pilsner, Munich, and a large dose of wheat malt that lends the beer a distinct, Spring-like quality. Our Courir de Mardi Gras is seasonally brewed for pre-Lenten celebrations.

12oz bottle shared by someone who was not me. Dudeabide, I think. Clear golden orange amber color. Thin off-white head. Couple dots of lace. Medium plus body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Kind of crisp, more dry texture. Moderate bitter taste, more dry sweet. Good toasty malt, biscuity aroma. Light grassy hop. Good American bier de grade, satisfyingly hoppy. Nice stuff.

12 oz. bottle shared by DrSilverworm- thanks again, Chris! Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Aroma of sweet malts, straw, florals, soap, maybe a hint of funk. Flavor of sweet malts, caramel, grass, florals, cereal, and grains. Light-bodied, with a dry, malty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Didn’t strike me as a BDG. Just a nondescript ale.

On tap at dba New Orleans. Pours a clear golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of bready malt, peppery spices, light fruits. Flavor of pepper, lemon zest, bready malt, orange rind. Solid biere de garde, tasty and drinkable. Nothing terribly exciting but it is good for what it is supposed to be. 7/4/7/4/14 (3.6/5)
