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.

Orange! The floating orange on the label is nearly the exact color of the brew. Citrus and malty nose is very pleasant. Refreshing and smooth despite the moderate %Alc. Quite unique.

Pours with a volumnous foaming head that reduces quickly leaving very nice lace. . . Firey orange colour that brings brillance to an otherwise gloomy day (for me). Very unqiue aroma - malty this second, lemon hops the next. Robust malt on the tongue, hints of wheat, then a spicy hop finish that is light and refreshing.

Definite citrus note, though it's difficult to tell if it comes from the wheat or from the hops. Excellent beer nonetheless.

This was a damn good Saison, thanks to mitch for the beer. It begins with an awesome aroma of wood, paper, caramel, yeastiness and bananas. It pours a golden and tanned color with a heavy opal colored head. There is a nice lemony bittering and a malty tanginess that begins right around the mid sip. Some mango and citrus in there as well just to be well rounded and crisp. Big, bold taste with a round malty finish and a nice dry ending. The carbonation level is medium and held in check well. This is very tasty and smells wonderfully.

Hazy yellow/orange w/ a meringue-like head. A peppery, lemony flavor w/ a clean finish. Different & enjoyable.

(bottle) A hazy beer. I wasn't quite sure what kind of beer this was actually when I got the bottle, but found out quickly whrn I poured it and smelled/saw it. Not my favorite style. It didn't have much flavor or character, tho the aroma was nice.

Tap. Golden small head. Maltiness in flavor, slightly sweet. Drinkable but nothing special.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 5, 2003
Slightly hazy amber with an initially fluffy cream colored head. Heavy appearance, with slow traveling bubbles. Aromas of spiced light citrus. Flavors start out with a light crispy fruitiness and continue to a lightly peppered ripe fruit encore. Smooth on the tongue. Yeasts float about and keep the flavors light, spicy and refreshing.

Enjoyable fruit beer, tastes kind of like a lager with subtle citrus/orange flavor.

hopscotch (9962) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 28, 2003
Deep, hazy golden/orange color. Large, rocky white head. Mostly lasting with excellent lacework. The nose holds notes of soap, citrus and vineous fruit. The flavor is malty and lightly sweet up front, then balanced out nicely on the backside with lightly bitter and astringent citrus fruit peel flavors. Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and very fizzy carbonation. Short, astringent and very dry finish. Citrusy and tart at the wee end. Very refreshing Spring beer! Thanks to jskendzel for this brew!
