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.

It?s has a nice appearance. No real aroma. Taste and palate feel is nice. But over all not something I want to drink again

From Notes, 4/16/12: Poured a 22oz bottle into Duvel Tulip. No apparent bottling or best by date. A: Cloudy orange with 2 finger rocky white head. Sporadic lacing down the glass as the head dissipates after a few minutes. S: A lot going on here. Lemon & orange stand out the most. Faint bitterness and lots of spiciness. Coriander, maybe? T: Taste follows the nose. Citrus up front with some funky yeast. Spices in the middle and slightly bitter hop finish. M: Juicy and medium-bodied. Carbonation is good for this lighter style. O: My first Biere de garde; I really enjoyed it. Easy to drink, but has nice complexity. Like New Belgium often does, it encourages you to go seek out more of a style.

Peacehammer (624) - California, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Dark orange, two fingers of cream white head. Zesty brett aroma. Think fruity barnyard. Light mouthfeel and bubbly carbonation. Finishing sour fruit note. Quote refreshing

demitriustown (1184) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Bomber: Aroma has belgian characteristics with a slight nose of sour apple, yeast, bubble gum, coriander, other spices, and a wheat notes. Appearance is a clear golden with a thick white head that dissipates slowly. Taste has got some nice malt upfront with the yeast and other fruit texture catching you on the backend. Palate has low to medium carbonation and a rather lean aftertaste. Overall, It’s decent. Cheers!

samarrr (24) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 7, 2012
Bomber poured into Belgian style tulip glass. Cloudy orange color with thick white head. Very good head retention with good lacing. Sour orange aroma. Toasted malt flavor with a mild sour orange hint at the back end. Sour blended very well to balance out this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

johnnyoski (445) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - SEP 7, 2012
Bomber. Pours a light amber color with a foamy white head. Sour orange, vanilla aroma. Toasted malt and doughy flavor with tones of coriander and other sweet spices that eventually lead to a semi- tart, funky farmhouse finish. Creamy texture with average carbonation. Smooth and quite clean on the palate.

BigBeer45 (1422) - Michigan, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle from Champanes sampled in a large tulip glass, this ale had a clear burnt orange (copper) pour and made a two to three finger very faint off-white head that receded to a cover and ring, the glass had a medium flow of bubbles in the center of the glass and a few bubbles elsewhere, this drink left spots and partial rings of lacing on the sides of the glass, the bottom of the bottle had a thin layer (film) of light brown colored sediment, the first whiffs from the bottle were banana but this was gone after I poured into the glass, the aromas were light toasted malt and bread, a little bit field flowers and herbs with faint spice, malt sweetness and something similar to vanilla pudding in the background, this drink had flavors of toasted malt and caramel with light lemon citrus in the background, there was some malt sweetness, the finish had a light/faint bitterness and citrus, the mouth feel was light and there was soft to average carbonation on the palate, a nice Summer drink.
