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.

Enjoyable fruit beer, tastes kind of like a lager with subtle citrus/orange flavor.

I am disappointed in Biere de Mars this year. The aroma is not as pungent as last year, there is no head, the color is not as deep, the beer is cloudy, and its missing the Belgian "funkiness" (tart, house blanket, musty, etc) that made this beer so unique last year.

It looked good, but just seemed entirely too bland for a saison. The spices were very hard to find, and it didn't have much kick to it in general. There was a nice citrus flavor going on with a light malt finish, but all in all a bland beer.

This is an interesting beer from this brewer. It has a noticable orange taste and is a very fruity beer. Not bad overall but i could only have 1 or 2 at a time.

Bottle - Pours cloudy orange with a whitish head. Smells like a bit of a white beer tart and light hopping with some european mystery aromas coming through. Tastes much better than I was expecting. Sweetish with fruit and creamy vanilla like spice. To thin but a nice summer lawnmower.

Middle of the road, has the signature bready flavor that lots of New Belgium beers do. Not much depth or originality. Tastes like most of their other ales. Not bad, but I would not seek it out.

murrayswine (101) - Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 27, 2006
The bottle poured a dark pumpkin orange, with pure white head, and a little lacing. The smell is slightly tart, but yet oddly, sort of minerally like a wet dog. The taste is layered, but subtly sweet off the bat. Orange zest is in the base, loads of spice, clove, coriander, and sweet yeast. Well built beer. The most under valued of the line by far. A damn good representation.

On tap at Gingerman in Ft. Worth. Very nice smell and flavor. Nice smooth taste with ginger and peach. The smell was of ginger, honey, and florals. Color was gold with white head and vice lacing.

Pours hazy golden with nice lacing. Banana nut bread on the nose. Lots of yeasty flavors and citrus, a bit nutty too. Very enjoyable beer, never tried this style at least that i know. Pretty complex stuff here, great beer for the spring.
