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.

JoeMcPhee (8788) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2006
Tap at the Six Arms. Hazy dark brown beer. Nice sweet caramel malts underneath a great tart aroma. Some great fruitiness, cherry, orange peel mixed with a soft woodiness. Vineous, white grape flavour. Body is still quite full, but there is great balance here. Lots of tasty funk. Dryish finish, despite all the sweet malts up front. Oaky tannic flavour and a lingering woody, resiny finish.

Draft. Spiced ale, bready malts, slaight fruit, spice from yeast. Seemed too sweet but i dk.

3fourths (8394) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 29, 2003
Soft cloudy orange. Sharp, somewhat tart flavor up front. Soft palate and carbonation throughout. Woody and sandy flavors, somewhat sour, like grapefruit juice, with some peanuts, birch, and turpentine flavors as well. Peach aroma.

Bottle. Horse blanket, lemon, and malt aroma. Hazy amber with small head. Sweet-musty lemon, malt and Brett flavor. Nice.

DocLock (8246) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2005
I hate round numbers, so this gets me off 1,400. Big thanks to fly for this. Pours turbid orangish with medium white head and much sticky lace. Aroma of malt, hopcit, slight vomit, barnyard, and sweaty female locker room. Tastes malty, with hopcit, earthy peaty esters, and some dusty yeast esters. Smooth finish. Very good balance and complexity. Nice style.

JorisPPattyn (8201) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 3, 2003
Dark orange; creamy (colour and consistency)head. Very slight malt in the nose. Sourish, gingerish, peppery hints in the taste on a very malty base. Not half bad. Medium-bodied, slick feeling in the throat. Nice. Quite drinkable, which I find difficult with anything swarming towards ginger. The French bière de Mars is not really considered Saison, though...

mcberko (8113) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2012
On tap at Apex, pours a hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of doughy malt - not much on the nose really. Flavour of dry bread, wheat and maybe some yeast - similarly bland flavour profile. Pointless beer to me, yet dry and refreshing. Decent enough I suppose.

BMan1113VR (7890) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 4, 2009
On tap as Lips of Faith Biere de Mars. Pours with a hazed amber body and a foamy off-white head that sticks for a while and leaves pretty good lace. Aroma of caramel, hay, toast, a touch of spice, diacetyl and light horse hair. Taste is pretty darn god with caramel, toast, candied figs, alcohol, toffee, bread and a very strong earthy quality (does this have a bit of brett in it?) Water like mouthfeel, light bubbles.

arminjewell (7534) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Pours orange with white head, aroma is full of spice with some banana, and wheat character. Taste up front is some fruity wheat, moving into a bit of spice and finishing a bit funky and dry. Not bad.

DSG (7485) - Tel Aviv, - APR 8, 2012
Bottle sample at the 3rd Israeli Sour Tasting. Thanks beerandbeyond. Hazy orange with a white head. Yeasty and fruity aroma with citrus and light funky notes. Spicy yeasty flavor with some fruitiness, some sweetness and a dry finish. Medium-bodied.
