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.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 6, 2010
Draft. A dark golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with an odd malt note combined with caramel, and yeast. Maybe it is the oats that makes it a bit odd for me.

Oakes (11786) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 24, 2001
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2005 Hazy orange colour. Spicy, phenolic aroma of medecine, sweat, cologne...like a classic saison meeting Orval. The palate is crisp, slightly toasty but largey perfumey, piney and phenolic. Straightforward, but I like it this way. Refreshing.

Old Notes (2000): Orangey, lively aroma and palate. Soft, rounded malt notes, peppery hints, and a touch of acidity dancing on the tongue. Very stylish.
