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.

22oz bottle to pint. Pour is a striking hazed orange. Aroma is of strong spice, grass and cherry. Taste is sweet, bubblegum, banana, sweet grass. Medium sticky body with average carbonation. Finish is sweet and abrupt. Very nice sessionable beer.

The color of a cut open butternut squash, and cloudy. The head rises then drops and floats like a hand-knitted tam. Clingy. Smells of straw bales, and a walk through a veggie garden in July; warm vegetable leaves and tilled soil. Taste of spicy baby greens. There’s citrus, and a reminder of coriander. Apricot. Delicious muskmelon! Floats on a carbonated swell with chewy grain raft.

From Notes, 4/16/12: Poured a 22oz bottle into Duvel Tulip. No apparent bottling or best by date. A: Cloudy orange with 2 finger rocky white head. Sporadic lacing down the glass as the head dissipates after a few minutes. S: A lot going on here. Lemon & orange stand out the most. Faint bitterness and lots of spiciness. Coriander, maybe? T: Taste follows the nose. Citrus up front with some funky yeast. Spices in the middle and slightly bitter hop finish. M: Juicy and medium-bodied. Carbonation is good for this lighter style. O: My first Biere de garde; I really enjoyed it. Easy to drink, but has nice complexity. Like New Belgium often does, it encourages you to go seek out more of a style.

Tasted at brewery and purchased on several occasions. VERY interesting cloudy orange color. I like the malty, citrusy flavor and the smooth, creamy mouthfeel. One of NBB’s more consistent beers.

Biere de Mars is a truly amazing beer. It almost glows in the bottle. This is a transcendent saison-style with awesome golden-orange color and great tangy, citrus aromas. Earthy, fruity, citrus-orange and floral notes bubble to the surface with a subtle yeasty background and smooth, crisp, well-balanced character. No overpowering spiciness like some saisons. I’ve picked up this seasonal brew for years now and it never gets old. I look forward to it every year and toward the end of the season I stockpile a six pack or two in my fridge so I can have it even after it’s sold out. This is a must try for any NB fan or any fan of great Belgian-style beers.

Pours an orangish beige, kind of fizzy white head, fair lacing, mostly diminishing head, loaded with visible yeast, large particles, the liquid itself is about average density. Barnyard horsy yeast aroma (more so as I finished my glass), with a touch of citrus, a bread level malt, some nutmeg, clove, etc. Light acidity and moderate sweetness, with some bitterness, the finish is less bitter and less acidic, sweetness lingers. Medium length finish. Medium body. Fresh juice-like texture. Fizzy carbonation. The finish is lightly astringent. An unusual combination of flavors, very interesting, but not something I would regularly drink. My guess is that this beer is meant to go with food.

Huge bubbly head over a hazy pale pour. Lively carbonation is visible as head goes rocky until collapse. Aroma is of strong citrus, barnyard and earth. Taste is fairly sweet, but with more bitterness than expected. Mild sweet finish with a hint of bitterness. Minor soapy off flavor in the finish, as well.

A beautiful beer to look at. The aroma is inviting and seductive, a hint of the many pleasures to come. The beer itself is complex: waves of fruit, malt, grass, spice and yeast. Those flavors deepen as the palate lingers. One of my new favorites.
