[Bottle] purchased at Healthy Spirits. Pours a clear caramel with ruby highlights and a finger of fluffy tan head. Aroma is strongly acetic and lactic, lots of oak and barrel character, tannin, and sour cherry. Flavor is slightly watery, lightly bitter, and not as complex as the aroma. Oaky, slightly sour, acetic, and lots of apple. The flavor was a bit disappointing after the awesome aroma.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours amber with a off white head. Taste slightly sour, fruity, citrus. I thought this was pretty good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark iced tea colored pour with a 2 finger, off-white head that fades to a thin lacy layer. Aroma of dark fruit, apple cider, vinegar, sour funk, spices and wet charred oak. Powerful sour flavor with lots of caramelized dark fruit notes, and a strong balance of oak. Velvety, oily medium body.

Dark reddish color. Aromas of sweet and sour fruits. Same in taste, with a balsamic aftertaste. Very nice and balanced beer.

Red color wit brown hints and a tall off white head that leaves a thin blanket of foam. Not a lot in the aroma, just faint spices and some yeast. The flavor is very peppery with a lot of other spices thrown in. Long spice note on the finish.

A nice reddish-brown body with a quickly diminshing white head. Aroma is lightly spicy, somewhat like a Lambic wiht a slight hop accent. Taste is sour accented, with an oak accent citrus taste. Ending is again oaked citrus, with a light effervescent quality.

Poured dark hazy brown color with a white head that actually grew for about 5 minutes after the beer was poured. The aroma made me think this was going to have quite a bit of sourness. The aroma had a nice yeast maltiness to it. Flavor was really smooth and easy to drink. A lot of light fruitiness maybe a slight citrus feel to it. A slight tartness and bitterness to this one. This one feels great in the mouth, good carbonation and a body that fits the beer well. This beer would be pleasing on a cold winter night or a hot summer day. Refreshing yet still packs a mouthful of flavor.

From notes. First reviewed 11/19/2011. Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tulip. Biere de Mars pours a hazy apple cider bronze color with a medium tan head that eventually fades to a ring around the edge of the glass. No real lacing to speak of. The aroma is mostly sour, with a soft leather and musty funk. Caramel malt and dried dark fruits, mostly cherries, control the aroma with an oak back. A soft caramel sweetness starts out before the lactic sourness takes over. Cherry plum notes remind me of an Oude Bruin. Some oak, vanilla, and spice come in toward the middle of the sip, with some lemon zest and general tartness to finish it off. The body of Biere de Mars is a little bit fuller than I expect from a sour. The oak dries out and lightens the back end, but the body is still on the full side. The feel is sour, mostly lactic, that causes some salivation. The carbonation is on the light side and fades over the course of the glass. Jolly Pumpkin makes quite a few solid sours, and this falls in the upper tier of their beers. Only the Biere de Mars Grand Reserve can really compete in my mind.

Sampled at the 1st annual Stone Sour Festival 2007. Nice aromas of sour fruit and maybe some wood. Very good.
