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.

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!

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 (444) - 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 (1265) - 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.

ThisWangsChung (747) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - AUG 25, 2012
About 4 oz. out of 22 poured into a sample glass. A: Pours a dark golden color with decent looking carbonation and lots of tiny yeast floaties. The head is a one finger barely offwhite color with decent retention and spotty lacing. S: Clean, crisp citrus - grapefruit, lemon, and the like - backed by a subtle sour funk. I really like how this smells, even if its a little simple smelling. T: Not nearly as good as the smell, sadly. Hints of lemon, phenols, and funk backed by slight maltiness, before the finish trails off disappointingly. Somewhat lacking in flavor. To be fair, it’s hard to judge the complexity of a small sample size, but I can’t say I’m a huge fan of this. M: Like I said, the finish is completely lacking in staying power, but it’s far from undrinkable. Lighter texture and surprisingly lowish carbonation. O: Not terrible, but I would rather spend a lot more on a bottle of La Folie - and I’m a cheap bastard, which should tell you something.

On Draught @ BC's Pizza & Beer Pours cloudy and amber with a thick orange honey color. Light malt and wheat with a watered slightly commercial finish. Pleasant but unremarkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ellolovey (468) - Georgia, USA - AUG 21, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2012 Pours a hazy gold color with a nice frothy white head. Lively carbonation. Smells of bready malts and cloves. Taste doughy with lemon and corriander notes. lightly sour, with a sweet caramel side. Very interesting. Has a dry, bitter finish.

sonnycheeba (3677) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Tap. Pours mostly clear copper with average, frothy off-white head; decent retention and spare lacing. Aroma is caramel and toasted malts, grassy hops, figs, pears, mixed nuts, and some herbs. Flavor is sweet and toast malts forward with some hops (light bitterness) and good supporting fruit esters; dry finish. Light/medium body, medium carbonation, and low warmth.

New Belgian Brewery has outdone themselves on this ale. Poors a foggy robust copper-tan color, has a perfect frothy top and has a refreshing yet filling aftertaste. I have tried their Lips of Faith "Brett Beer" and it was decent, but this is HANDS DOWN the best ale I have had in a long time. I would highly recommend it.
