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.

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)

Poured with overwhelming carbonation. Actually took two pours to get the 12 oz bottle into a 16 oz glass. Clean white and fluffy head. Looks cloudy and light yellow. In fact, at first glance it looks like a hefe. Citrus sweetness and some grassiness in the aroma. The flavor is lead by sweet and slightly toasted malt, herbs, touch of grassy biterness from the hops. Banana in the finish, too. Interesting flavors and really smooth. Worth a shot.

I had this beer unfiltered at a beer festival. My first reaction was, "No thanks!" I found it to have an unpleasing flavor that wasn’t worth my time with so many other beers to choose from.

Bottle. Poured orangey amber with a quickly dissipating, fizzy off-white head. Aroma was fruity, with some yeastiness and mild spiciness. Flavor was tropical fruits, apricots, some mild yeastiness and spices, and some doughiness. Medium mouthfeel.
