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 translucent orange with a thick head, which leaves nice lacing. Aroma is full of citrus and bread. Slides over the tounge with full body and a hoppy bite. Lingering aftertaste (with this beer, its a good thing). One of my favorites!!!

New Belgian Brewery has outdone themselves on this ale. Poors a foggy robust copper-tan color, has a perfect frothy top and has a refreshing yet filling aftertaste. I have tried their Lips of Faith "Brett Beer" and it was decent, but this is HANDS DOWN the best ale I have had in a long time. I would highly recommend it.

On tap at the brewery -- talk about fresh and properly-served! Brewed with Pale, Aromatic, C-40 and Carapils malts, all fairly lightly-toasted. Willamette, Cascade and Magnum hops are very much kept in abeyance here, with only 18 IBU. The malts dominate the smell and the taste. Unpasteurized (as all of this breweries ales are!), unfiltered. bottle-conditioned spring ale on its first run of the season . Semi-cloudy, orange-colored pretty looking beer. Notes of orange and lemon in the nose, with wheat and maybe even oats. Taste matches, but lays a bit lower than the smell. Very drinkable and very pleasant. You who live in Colorado need to try this one at the brewery. You who don’t live in Colorado -- well, tough luck!

The lemon verbina was a minor component of the taste. The souring bretenomyces was refreshing with out being overpowering. I would drink it again

Bomber poured into Belgian style tulip glass. Cloudy orange color with thick white head. Very good head retention with good lacing. Sour orange aroma. Toasted malt flavor with a mild sour orange hint at the back end. Sour blended very well to balance out this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2012 orange with an amber, though the longer it sits the less amber hue it seems to have. Nice creamy head at the start ends up settling in clusters around the edges. Mild funk in the aroma, sweet oranges. The welcomes you as you take you sip and then comes the sweet. Caramel malt with some banana, some pear, something citric. Medium bodied, kinda creamy, but crisp. Dry finish. A very nice beer and at $5.99 a great deal.

22 oz poured into New Belgium globe glass. Light amber / honey color with great clarity. Thin white head and fine, vigorous carbonation. Musty aromas include sour apple and other fruits, with some floral notes. Mouthfeel is watery, but sports flavors of apple, citrus, and some spices. The finish is classic brett – sour but dry. Not my preferred style, but a really nice offering that gives me the urge to sit down with a nice cheese board and some smoked sausage.

Aroma- Some citrousy, spiciness, but not a whole lot of aroma. Appearance- Beautiful hazy orange, tiny white bubble head. Taste- Definitely citrous up front. Some spiciness in the middle and finishes pretty dry. Overall- Drinks really well. Flavors could have been a little bolder, but overall, a good pick up.

Bottle, pours orange with a nice white head. A good brad dough flavor balanced with a citrus character.
