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.

Lips of Faith Biere de Mars - bottle. Woooooowwwwww... is there a lot going on in that glass! Gorgeous orange (a true orange color) in the glass without much head. I get a bit of sour on the nose - perhaps some straw. Very very mellow ale - soft on the palate - with complex malt, some spice (but muted) and some nice wild yeast.

Courtesy of my roommate Ryan. Pours a cloudy goldenrod color. Smells like funky, yeasty citrus. Delicate carbonation. Tastes tart and slightly sour, like a funky Belgian hefeweizen. Nice wheat, citrus, and mild peppery spice flavors. Tastes slightly mild, but is probably just right for a hot day.

As I carefully poured the beer to avoid getting any sediment in my glass I lashed out a quick "dought" when little floaties invaded my beer. Then I read the label and had to laugh as apparently flocuant yeast was added to the bottle to achieve this exact effect emulating the rotating planets. So with yeast circling around in the Mars orange to red beer with no head allowing the fruity aromas to escape the hole in the artificial atmosphere created by the goblet I enjoyed the subtle malt caracters complemented by the slight fruitiness of a typical ale. Overall well balanced and a real pleasure to drink.

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.

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.

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.

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.
