3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Overall a little dissapointing. Pours a hazy orange/amber in color, with no head. Flavors of honey, and light citrus notes. The good note is that it goes down easy so I can try something else.

I am disappointed in Biere de Mars this year. The aroma is not as pungent as last year, there is no head, the color is not as deep, the beer is cloudy, and its missing the Belgian "funkiness" (tart, house blanket, musty, etc) that made this beer so unique last year.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hoppy nose, light golden/orange color, fluffy head, mildly hoppy flavor with hints of citrus and maybe even a little love.

While I don't get any orange flavor or aroma from this one, I do get all the wonderful citrus lambic complexes. Amber red, possibly orange in color. A fine specialty ale from this brewer.

No head or lacing in this one. Orange aroma with some hoppy smells along for the weak ride. Lemon, hops, and carbonation about sum up this one. Not bad, but could be better.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden/light amber. Quickly dying head. Unspectacular nose of citrsy hops, slight yeast funk and hint of malt. Medium bodied. Light flavors of lemony hops, slight acidity, clean pale malt profile and slight fruitiness. Crisp, balanced and quaffable but doesn't have that saison funk to it.

Beer pours hazy orange hue with a white head that very rapidly completetly dissipates. Aroma is fruity with a little yeast. Flavor is citric spicy but a bit on the flat side. Decent, but a bit disappointing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange color, small to no head, minimal lacing. Could use a bit more carbonation. Overall, taste is too thin and watery. Something seems to be missing. Not bad, but not great.

Haven't tried this one before, I'm not sure I've seen it around here until the other day. The descrption of "lemon verbena" in it caused some apprehension before picking it up, but I'm glad I did. Very nice coloration; full complement of floaties; tastes tangy; my first impression was that it was pretty odd, but it grew on me rapidly; a complexity of flavors, alot of stuff going on with the tounge; oily, with a slightly crisp finish. I like this one, quite different, not too much lemon flavor IMO; clean & refreashing. This would be nice when the weather warms up. One of the better New Belgians.
