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 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.

Rentalman (103) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2006
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.

No head or lacing in this one. Orange aroma with some hoppy smells along for the weak ride. Lemon, hops, and carbonation about sum up this one. Not bad, but could be better.

frizzzzle (76) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - MAY 23, 2006
This beer pours cloudy yellow color with an explosion of foam (1 finger of beer to 4 fingers of foam). The smell is of candied malts, very pungent and slightly sour. The flavor is mostly sweet, but noticeably sour, with hints of lemon. Mouthfeel is very bubbly, with generous, sharp carbonation. The beer finishes dry and leaves a sour aftertaste that fades quickly. I wasn’t expecting a sour beer, and this caught me off-guard. That said, it’s not bad. The flavor is pleasant, and although it’s very strong, it’s rather cleansing. It reminds me a bit of the lambic I tried awhile back, but it’s actually drinkable.

Smacky (71) - San Clemente, California, USA - JUN 23, 2003
Orange! The floating orange on the label is nearly the exact color of the brew. Citrus and malty nose is very pleasant. Refreshing and smooth despite the moderate %Alc. Quite unique.
