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.

Orange moon looming with promise. Okay, enough with the pottery. Rather nice, pleasantly subtle yeasty, fruity, soft and easily drinkable.

I look forward to theis beer every year since it came out. Its got a nice sweet fruit fully spiced nose. Pours a golden orange color witha quickly disapating head. Mellow, yet spicy, extremely pleasant.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2004 Sweet fruity (apricot) aroma. Fast diminishing head on a hazy, orange body. Spicy but soft flavor, not very aggressive. Better the second time around.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - MAR 9, 2004
Orange bodied, spicey and full of citrus fruits in the nose. Body is full of soft carbonation, but nice flavors - sweet malts, coriander - dry finish with lots of citrus around the edges. Good saison.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2006 Rerate 06.07.06 Lightly hazed copper. Attractive brett nose. Moderate bitterness, including a distinct herbal bitterness. Attractive brett character, both in terms of dryness and a nice soft horseblankety finish.

JCW (1277) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 4, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2006 Hazy orange in color, head quickly dissipated. Aroma is yeasty, fruity, with flavors of orange, lemon, and maybe peaches. Tangy and bubbly mouth feel. Dry finish, Thanks, Tad.

Beaver (1545) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2004
The Biere de Mars poured a cloudy yellow-orange with lots of tiny floating sediment. It had a fizzy, white head that quickly went to a thin layer. It has an earthy, fruity aroma of lemon and maybe coriander with some very slight hops. Its taste was sweet malt up front, with quite a bit of lemony citrus, some floral hints, and then a crisp finish. Overall, a nice refreshing, lighter beer.

FlacoAlto (4091) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 2, 2004
Pours a hazy orange-gold color and is topped by an off white head. Aromas of lemons and herbs waft from my glass. There are also some thin malty notes in the nose. The taste is lightly sweet up front, and is quite crisp and clean. Some subtle notes of herbal lemon character are present. Nice, crisp, and refreshing, with perhaps a hint of acidity in the finish. Basically a good hot weather beer.

My biggest complaint is that this beer is being released in the wrong season. It should be a late spring/ summer beer. For this to really work, for me, the alcohol should be boosted up to about 8%.

Damn, I hate liking New Belgian beers. How the heck does this brewery make a living from Flat Tire when they produce such good beers otherwise? The pour reminds me of Tang, only not quite as bright. Lots of suspended yeast. Not a whole lot or a head or lacing, though, but that's typical for the style. Scent is light malt with a bit of citrus. Taste is also light. Some citrus hints with some spices hide behind a delicate and crisp malt. I find this cleaner than most Saisons. Mouthfeel is a bit watery but not too much so, though it could use a bit more carbonation. Overall this is pretty good and a find complement to the rest of NB's offerings, if only they'd get rid of Flat Tire and a few others.
