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.

Very hazy amber with a fluffy head and a herby citrus aroma. It’s heavy on the spice and I’m not liking some of the specific spices that are standing out, too much coriander for example.

Bottle. Pour is an almost orange amber. Nose is sweet and hoppy with some citrus. Taste is very flat. Almost no carbonation. First flavor notes are citrus, bitter, hops, and caramel. There is a flavor here that I do not like, but I can’t put my finger on it. There is a flavor on the back of the tongue during the finish that reminds me of sucking on cardboard. To sum it up, this beer is not very enjoyable. Blah.

Medium, hazy orange, decent but quickly fading head. Hard to get an aroma off of this, very faintly of wheat and oranges. Flavors were muted and subtle, not like the Belgian Saisons that are so much more in your face. The "unidentified flying yeast strains" lent an odd, sour off note at the end, almost reminiscent of a spoiled batch of homebrew. Too bad, as I had really been looking forward to trying this. Thanks to TannerTavernBoys for giving me the chance to sample!

Pours a hazy orangish/gold color. Aromas of tart fruit, bread, hint of citrus. Flavor is malty/citrus. Leaves a yeasty orange aftertaste. Not for me.

Tap at the Wash Park Grille, 23 oz mug served with an orange. Cloudy Orange color with a decent white head that dissipated fairly quickly. Not much aroma. Taste was refreshing and light, but not overly flavorful, a tiny bit citrusy. Fairly unimpressive overall. Kind of a dry, fizzy mouthfeel. Probably a good summer lawnmower beer.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2006 Getting a tip that this years batch was much better than past (2005/2006), I went ahead a gave the Biere De Mars a try. Poured a light orangish color that looked intriguing. The aroma to me was not much of anything, and if anything, wasn’t great. This hit my palate and sent shock waves of hoppiness, and bitterness, with almost a sour taste to it. I was not impressed, as I have had much better saison style brews.

Pale orange. Interesting aroma, but enough wheat to put me off. A complex flavor for a lighter style, but has a wheat funk that is not pleasant to me, and a fruity yeast finish. I can see why some would like this, but I don’t like wheat beers, and this has a special wheat flavor I don’t care for. I wish it used rye instead.

22 ounce Lips of Faith bottle purchased from the Pole Line Nugget in Davis, CA. Aroma has some musty barnyard yeast notes at first, which is followed by some light sweet aromas. Some spices present as well. Very slightly hazy dark golden/orange body with a medium whitish head. Sweet, doughy start, which becomes well...pretty bland. Light spiciness to finish. Not much bitterness. A little yeas character, but all in all this is a real snoozer. Doesn’t taste like a BdG to me. It has a very thick oily body, too.

22oz bottle. Kind of a dark gold pour with a nice white head. Sweet, somewhat spicy aroma, a little peppery as well. Not a whole lot of flavor realy, trying to get some discernable flavor,but can’t put my finger on anything, let down.
