COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

JulienHuxley (3263) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2012
Bottle at Mondial. Pure gold pour with white head. Aroma is grainy, some yeasty spicy aromas, mild funkiness too, like a light brett inoculation - a little in between something wanted and an accident. Taste is doughy, lots of spicy, wild yeast notes, lemon, a bit grassy too. Palate is well carbed but relatively mellow and easy drinking. Nice beer overall.

rdixon77 (783) - Georgia, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Dark orange pour with little head. Aroma has a definite off-putting funk...mildewy or (at best) barnyard. The brets running wild, I suppose. Okay, maybe there is a bit of lemon in there too. The taste thankfully is much better. The citrus and sweet spices stand up for themselves and make a pretty nice little beer. As a mild bitterness. A sourdough taste. Pretty good, but not a great beer.

Gachupines (910) - USA - MAY 31, 2012
Cloudy golden haze with a white head. Aroma is slightly orange and yeasty. Flavor is yeast, spice, slightly bready but without a heavy mouthfeel. Slight citrus flavor and very light on the tongue. Overall, very solid, could use a little more body to round out the finish. Would definitely have this again.

fidelis83 (1975) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Pours a medium amber to gold with a 1 finger, creamy white head. Aroma is funky, hose blanket, dried citrus, earth, spice, wet leaves, basement, green wood, tart apples, and light sweet woody notes. Flavor is toast, nuts and caramel, granola, ginger and clove filled sweetbread spice, funky notes much lighter than the aroma wet leaves, some farmhouse and limestone basement. Finish is huge on toasted cereal grain and a light funky and citrus fade. Very nice, the malty, nutty and slightly sweet flavor was definitely not what I expected from the funky aroma. Palate is light to medium bodied, dry and a little oily throughout, with a light, but pleasantly sharp and blanketing carbonation. Nice, and odd mix of funk and deep malty tones that seems to work quite well.

ttoadee (668) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Bubbly and bronze in the glass, decent head. Aroma of dirt and wet grass, slightly spicy hops. Bitter across the tongue, somewhat unbalanced (Brett?). Leaves with a long astringent finish. I somewhat respect this beer, but I do not like it.

dnstone (2147) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Brett "horse blanket" aroma. Golden in color with white head. Smooth texture with medium to light body and slight lactic tart characters. Notes: Brewery visit during ’09 GABF

tia (939) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Bottle. Amber with big foamy dissipating head and some lacing. Smells like cotton candy, lemon, a hint of tobacco, a hint of gum, and almost a minty quality. A clean bitterness with an astringency and light sweetness. Light, clean, pretty carbonated, light bitter and astringent finish. Not bad.

HopTsing (427) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - MAY 4, 2012
From the bottle poured a hazy golden brew with a thick white head.Aromas of malt, citrus fruit and apple cider. Flavors of lemon, and honey, with a hint of something stink footy. Over all, not bad.
