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.

phaleslu (9249) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2010
22 oz. bottle from Randall’s. Pours a semi-cloudy orange-gold color with a small off-white head. Aroma of farmhouse funk, orange peel, grains, spices normally associated with a fall beer such as nutmeg, pepper, and apples. Flavor of farmhouse funk, orange and lemon citrus, apples, spices, and cereal. Light-medium bodied, with a spicy, funky mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Pretty cool beer.

JorisPPattyn (9247) - 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...

arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, 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.

Bottle, shared with Dave. Pours a hazy light amber with a towering white bubbly head that retains beautifully. Aroma is sweet and slightly toasty, with soft sweet spices and light fruit. sweet flavours of hay, honey, light toast, mace, ginger, and candied apricots. Really tasty and interesting.

marcus (8894) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 29, 2009
This copper ale poured with a fluffy white head and a spice and yeast aroma. The flavor is much more mellow than I expected, yet very flavorful, with a nice malt base, lots of interesting spices and a subtly bitter finish. Surprisingly, not very sour.

How long has this been in the back of my cellar? Years! Wow. 22oz bomber pours with a clear copper body that supports a thin off white head. The aroma offers up sweet apples, some spices, a bit of funk and yeastiness. The taste delivers similar notes of sweet apples, some spices, a sliver of basement funk and yeastiness. Pretty nice. This has aged alright.
