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.

Onionkid (366) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle. Aroma has almost nothing to it, a bit of cut grass. The taste is pretty light, some caramel and toffee, but mostly has a bad, malty taste. 6% alcohol.

This beer has a decent taste but it’s not much to write home about. I found it to be a middle of the road beer. Sure I would have it again, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to get it.

Bottle share w/Travlr. Deep gold pour with a small head. Cereal, somewhat spicy, Charleston Chew candy. Funky yeast. Taste is similar. Strong chewy malts. Brown sugar and banana. Light floral accents. Medium body, soft carbonation. Unremarkable.

dfroms (247) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Bottle shared on 3/20 by my friend Nicola. Filtered Budweiser appearance, medium head of fine white bubbles. Highly carbonated. Aroma is faint: sweet grain, fruity esters. Taste is watery, grainy with mild hop bitterness. Almost like a watery helles lager with pale-ale bitterness. Forgettable.

Erzengel (2607) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 10, 2014
Dark golden in the glass, grainy nose. The beer starts malty and spicy. Rough but great. The mainpart is highly drinkable, a bit grainy, a bit spicy from the French yeast (or its style) I think. The aftertaste is smooth-rough, spicy and grainy, slightly bitter.
Interesting session beer in the Bière de Garde-style. --> 10/12/10/10

Pours a golden amber with a thin white head. Aroma is slightly yeasty. Slight spicyness to it. Flavor has some bitterness and is somewhat malty. Finishes clean and very dry. Nice beer.
