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.

Pours a hazy orange golden with a short-lived white head. Nicely semi-sweet and spiced aroma with hints of Belgian yeast. Body is very smooth with a pleasant, earthy dry malty profile and a mild hop balance. Very drinkable and with good style adherence. Thanks whaleman!

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.

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..

Ernest (6749) - 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.

BBB63 (6474) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 29, 2003
Great appearance with huge head and lacing. Aroma hinted of citrus, grains, and a tart yeast. Spicey and tart on the palate, finish clean. Very enjoyable and unique style when done right.

TheAlum (6373) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 18, 2009
22 oz bottle courtesy of Binnys South Loop and shared with a couple friends. Pours a well carbonated sunshine amber, decent white head that laces pretty well, fairly lively carbonated body. Aromas throw a combo of belgian yeast, a touch of spice, vanilla and honey. Initial is a bit floral, a bit funky but that doesn’t play a huge role. Vanilla, honey, belgian yeasty spice.. Flowers. Light, a touch of cinnamon, clove. Finishes dry, lightly bitter. Underlying sweetness and spice sticks to the palate. A decent effort, just a strange mishmash of styles for me.

Cletus (6355) - 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.
