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.

This was a good beer. Pours a cloudy golden broth, then settles to a beutiful orange tint. Good Lacing qualities. An almost honey like scent that goes well with the sweet-bitterness. This is also a good cooking beer, oddly enough..

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.

drowland (7887) - Georgia, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Sampled at CBC and at Brent’s recently. Orange pour with a small off-white head. Fruity Brett aroma, some spice, light doughy/cereal malts. Light Brett, a touch of tart in the flavor, citrus fruits, hints of spice and malts. Not bad.

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

Ughsmash (7508) - 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.

nimbleprop (7494) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 4, 2010
22oz bottle pours a hazy, copper amber with a thin white head. Nose is bretty, spicy, malty, sugary, yeasty. Flavor is fruity, sweet, Belgian yeast, some coriander. Medium bodied.

PorterPounder (7335) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2005
12 oz bottle - Central Market - Austin,Tx. Pours a murky light peach color with a thin but long lasting white head. Aroma has a bit of a lemony zest to it. Flavor is pleasant, but muddled. Has some citrus notes, with a bit of white grape in there. Some yeasty notes make their way in the back end as well. Mouthfeel is fairly thick for the style. Overall, decent, nothing to write home about.

Ernest (7323) - 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.

onceblind (7323) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 14, 2010
This pours out a light copper, almost golden colour. Smells primarily of cherries, but I also get a bit of licorice and basement funk. The taste of this beer hits the tongue with cherries and overripe peaches, however there is not much else I can detect. Finishes a bit like rice lager to create a complex and interesting taste profile
