Biere De Mars is New Belgium’s exploration of the classic French and Belgian brews celebrating the half-winter, half-spring month of March. Our bottle-conditioned version, however, goes where no BIERE DE MARS has gone before. After gazing at its cloudy, yet glowing orange hue, prepare yourself for a celestial collaboration of oats, wheat, barley malt and lemon verbena, all of which is set into orbit by unidentified flying yeast strains.

How long has this been in the back of my cellar? Years! Wow. 22oz bomber pours with a clear copper body that supports a thin off white head. The aroma offers up sweet apples, some spices, a bit of funk and yeastiness. The taste delivers similar notes of sweet apples, some spices, a sliver of basement funk and yeastiness. Pretty nice. This has aged alright.

Sample at Ale Yeah! Bubbly, bronze color, with a thin, beige head. The nose is caramel, light bread yeast, cloves, brown sugar, and orange peel. Sweet flavor, with a lovely yeasty character. Light to medium body, creamy, and smooth. Overall, this is a very approachable, flavorful, and well balanced beer.

"newly branded "lips of faith" offering...i’ll stick with the regular stuff. don’t like paying a premium for a beer that’s at best the same as the regularly priced line-up. 1 22 oz for nearly the price of a sixer? why? don’t get me wrong, this beer was not offensive in any way, but thoroughly ordinary in every way. Won’t be back."

Pale colored with white head. Aroma of dirt , caramel, some citrus. Taste follows suit. So much earth. Brett is so complex.

Pours a cloudy amber color with white head. Cereal grains on the nose with a little citrus; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little yeast note.

Pours golden orange with a huge frothy white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is citrusy with a definite Brett funk as well as slightly spicy. Taste is consistent with traditional Belgian ales. Orange and lemon zest flavors shine through with the slight Brett funk creeping up on you. Very refreshing, another Lips of Faith success. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasted on 2/25/14 from a capped 650mL bottle sent to me as an extra quite some time ago (probably mid-2010). Pours hazy, but very bright beautiful orange with a massive, billowing off-white head that slowly recedes to very thick, rocky lace. The nose is dominated by super dry bandaid brett funk, with some lemon balm and orange peel. and a touch of light, bready malt. The flavor is perhaps even more dry and funky with the caramelized orange peel and dry lemon balm on the back of the palate. The body is medium with massively huge carbonation and a long very dry bandaid funky finish.
