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.

nbutler11 (1267) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 10, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2009 On tap at Papago. Pours a light copper color with a creamy off-white head that leaves a fair amount of lacing. Smells of apricot and faint yeast. Tastes of both with the sweet taste of caramel on the mid-palate and a tart peach flavor that dries on the finish. Nicely balanced. Re-rated from one of the new 22oz bottles and liked it even better. Has a really comforting butterscotch richness to the flavor.

Thanks to friend Paul B for this sample. Follows more or less the the objective description listed here. Poured with a nice white head and good lace. Color is almost clear medium yellow. Aroma is spicy, malty, honey, herbal; nice. Flavor is about the same. Decent brew. Good finish. Slightly boozy. Drinkable.

DubC5000 (305) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Beautiful amber-brown in color with no head formation and minimal carbonation. Sweet, grassy hops, honey and marshmallow on the nose, with a slight hint of bubblegum. Decidedly bready taste, with citrus sourness without the acidity and licorice flavors. Alcohol apparent but not overwhelming and adds a nice cooling finish. Very mild hop bitterness. A great ale on its own, and I’d be curious to try more of the style.

Drake (8992) - 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.

West USA trip 2010. Bottled. The aroma has yeast, some spice, citrus. Bit hazy, copper-golden coloured beer with a white, medium head. The taste is lightly sour/tart, yeasty/earthy and citric. Quite good and well balanced.

adnielsen (9470) - 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.

Aml42000 (622) - Washington, USA - FEB 25, 2012
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.

EamonTheGreat (154) - USA - MAR 26, 2014
Pours golden orange with a huge frothy white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is citrusy with a definite Brett funk as well as slightly spicy. Taste is consistent with traditional Belgian ales. Orange and lemon zest flavors shine through with the slight Brett funk creeping up on you. Very refreshing, another Lips of Faith success. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
