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.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 4, 2010
Bottle at the Where the Wild Beers Are event graciously hosted by Mission Dolores. Pours a just hazy dirty amber gold with a thin white head. Sweet malt and a light bit of musk. Spicy malt, sweetness. Malt and toast on the finish. OK overall.

sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 17, 2009
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.

DuffMan (6436) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 6, 2010
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.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 20, 2006
Not quite what I was expecting. Pours a hazy orange with almost no discernable head. Oily in the glass. Tastes sugary with some light grassy notes. Aromas of hay and grass seem to quickly give way to sugary smells.

marcus (6300) - 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 (6204) - 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.

5000 (6178) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 20, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 Bottle: A large white bubbly froth sits atop a cloudy orangish hued glass of goodness. Very interesting yeasty flavor, with some lemony/peppery/floral accents. Maybe a bit of cloves thrown in. Very sticky... flavor is retained for some time after finishing. I detect some other spices as well... hard to put my finger/tongue on it. Very enjoyable.

Ernest (6142) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2010 Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, malt syrup), lightly hoppy (apricot), with notes of nutmeg, pumpkin, and detergent. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Odd aroma reminiscent of Thanksgiving time beers, squashy and nutmeggy. Some flaws too, though...crude malt character that’s more or less New Belgium’s trademark, and some soap. Sweetness lingers uncomfortably long into the finish; difficult to drink much of.

22. Pours a murky medium amber with a creamy white head. Mild caramel nose. Creamy medium body with mild carb. Soft sweet finish. Unremarkable.

blutt59 (5999) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 21, 2009
bottle, golden colored pour, small foam, aromas of celery seed, mint, spices, flavors of mint, cepacol, spice, woody, finish can be a bit strange
