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.

Orange amber color with a suprizingly clear liquid and a white head. Medium sweetness with little to no bitterness. No sourness and a very light hint of salt. Medium body and a thin/oily texture. Not much carbination. Long pleasing finish. A beer of choice for me

Slightly hazy orange-tan color, with a creamy off-white head. I get cinnamon, nutmeg, and the slight herbal touch of verbena in the aroma. Reminiscent of over spiced/herbed American Saisons, Bierre De Garde, and a touch of spiced Winter Ale all rolled into one. And it works. Well. Gentle on the palate, leaves you with a spiced sweet aftertaste, quite complex. Brett is pleasantly mellow and really completes the whole picture. This is a world class beer, delicate and exquisite.

Citrus/fruit, malts and a hint of spice in aroma. The flavor is heavy on the citrus/orange with an undercurrent of spices and malts that dominates the finish. Pretty good ale.

Dark golden color. Opaque. Nice white foamy head with plenty of lacing. Aroma is clove and cinnamon-like with some citrus notes. Reminds me of Christmas aromas. There is a mild sweetness in the taste and a dry bitter finish with some astringency. Not sure if I nailed the aroma, but it’s very nice.

Cybercat (3342) - Georgia, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Comes out of the tap a somewhat hazy amber - not much head, but this is from the way they pour it. Aroma is malty and yeasty with a subtle fruity undertone.Malty flavor has subtle notes of yeast, hops and apple, just a touch of sour fruit plus just a hint of herbs. Firm-bodied texture has plenty of fizz and a bit of a sour bite. Another winner from New Belgium’s Lips of Faith series.

Lemony, fruity, bretty aroma. pours golden with a wimpy head that dissipates rather quickly. Taste is fruity, floral, with a funk that only brettanomyces can deliver. I can’t really explain why I like Brett beers, but i really like this one and will buy again!

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 15, 2010
Growler from the Libation Station in Johnson City, TN. Pours a hazy rust color with a medium offwhite head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of musty tartness, citrus, caramel, lavender. Taste is oats, caramel, bread, spice, citrus, plum, floral and earthy notes, and a faintly tart finish. Medium bodied and fairly strongly carbonated. Texture is smooth and almost creamy. Good beer.

adnielsen (9134) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 23, 2010
Tasted from a bomber purchased in Denver, Colorado. Pours a hazy burnt orange body with a larger white head. Yeast, sour citrus fruits and a great Belgian ale aroma. Flavor is a nice lighter Belgian ale body that’s somewhat spicy, somewhat yeasty. Body is fairly malty with some sour citrus fruits in there. Delicious beer.

Very nice- but this needs to warm up to show everything it offers. Cloudy unfiltered copper with a thin disappaiting head. The nose offers Brett with other light spices. Medium bodies with a gorgeous bubbly mouthfeel. Cardamom on the finish.
