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.

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.

BMan1113VR (7904) - 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.

courtesy of vasdef42, 22oz bottle. Pours orange, white head. Aroma, brett, citrus, some apple. Flavor, hoppy, light malty notes, spices and possibly ginger, adding for a nice peppery mouthfeel. Malt also gives the finish a light chocolate feel, coupled with.some citrus elements.

marcus (7671) - 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.

phaleslu (7600) - 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.

Ughsmash (7387) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Lips of Faith bomber. Poured lightly hazy medium orange with a short cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up coriander and oranges upfront with a malted wheat base.. warm and a touch syrupy. The flavor found caramel and biscuity malts at the core with coriander, orange zest, and white pepper around.. again syrupy-sweet.. tangy and increasingly funky from the Brett as it warmed up.. the dry, funky finish picked up an unexpected dose of chocolate. Medium-bodied and spicy on the palate, but there was still too much sweetness. This was OK.

"newly branded "lips of faith" offering...i’ll stick with the regular stuff. don’t like paying a premium for a beer that’s at best the same as the regularly priced line-up. 1 22 oz for nearly the price of a sixer? why? don’t get me wrong, this beer was not offensive in any way, but thoroughly ordinary in every way. Won’t be back."
