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.

Aroma translates to must, orange, mildewy books, powdered citrus sugar, hay, and a little yeast…appearance was slightly hazy golden yellow and a tad shiny in the light... a solid but thin layer of suds topped things off…uneventful citrus flavor with a yeasty display of slight blood, acidic banana, and hay flavors…it turns spicy near the end...maybe lemon zest,orange juice, coriander, pollen, and white pepper...yeastiness grows as does the orange flavors..but it doesnt combine well in my opinion..kinda astrigent mouthfeel actually...tastes like malt liquor after a while..

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2003 A challenging beer, this isn't like the Saisons I've had before at all. Orange-colored, very fragrant fruit and grain aroma. Flavor is grainy and sour. Some kind of wild and crazy yeast and/or bacteria? Re-Rate: Mar 29, Different now! Bought another six-pack, noticeably better. Hops in aroma! no sourness this time, still spicy though. gains several points. yeast aroma is that of cider. Very original beer, I'm glad New Belgium has the guts to release stuff like this.

It looked good, but just seemed entirely too bland for a saison. The spices were very hard to find, and it didn't have much kick to it in general. There was a nice citrus flavor going on with a light malt finish, but all in all a bland beer.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2009 A very spicey and wonderfully attractive beer. Pours a beautiful orange/amber colour with a robust lacing of white bubbles clinging to the glass. Lemon, ginger and hop laden. This is like a liquid flower.

Love this. The zesty lemon gives this a great bite but there are many complexities dancing around on the tongue. Nice orange gold, very attractive. I want more.

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - FEB 24, 2003
Hazy orange color with a pretty good pale orange head that fades quickly (but leaves nice lace on the glass). Fruity/estery aroma. Citrus sourness balanced with hops. Not overly yeasty.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2005 12oz. bottle: This one pours with some head to it, but dies off quickly. Hazy and somewhat orange in color. I get some citrus and breadiness in the nose. It has the main taste of a wheat beer body, with breadiness and spiciness also. It is good enjoyable brew.

A ton of tiny bubbles, a nice, thick rolling head. Smells fruity & citrucy. Yeast definitely contributes greatly to the aromatics and flavor. Rich and malty as well, some flaked barley and wheat. Also, a somewhat dry bitter character among the finish of spice and citrus zest.

crisp intense lemon aroma, cloudy orange with loose head, light bodied with crisp bitter lemon and wheat

The aroma is sweet, and yeasty, with hins of citrus. The appearance is a hazy, orangish gold, with a nice frothy head. The flavor is lightly citrus, a bit yeasty, with a slight bitter aftertaste. The beer is smooth and easy to drink. Overall a nice beer, but somehow I was expecting a knockout from a limited edition brew.
