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.

On tap at Apex, pours a hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of doughy malt - not much on the nose really. Flavour of dry bread, wheat and maybe some yeast - similarly bland flavour profile. Pointless beer to me, yet dry and refreshing. Decent enough I suppose.

brokensail (16401) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 11, 2010
A: A sort of orange/copper color, about one finger of white foam that recedes fairily quickly. S: Spice, yeast, not really any sort of funk that I was expecting from the Brett. T: Rather bland, especially for what I was expecting. Mild spice and yeast flavors, otherwise bready. M: Medium body, with mild carbonation. D: Drinkable?: yes. Great (or even good)?: no.

bhensonb (14986) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 3, 2006
A hint of sour. Also yeasty orange? Orange amber color. Not so cloudy, as the sediment settled. Orangy citrus, malt, hop flavors merge. Tiny bubbles foam to a chewy state. Mellow spicy hop finish. But there’s a faint hint of something tending towards creosote. Or some flavor I just can’t otherwise label. Not bad, just different. Bottle conditioned ale triumphs again.

Bomber. Pours a clear orange copper with a small frothy white head that diminishes quickly leaving decent spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is a strong clove, citrus, and light floral. Medium mouthfeel with a spicy fruit with wheat and lemon. Easy to drink, very refreshing a very good Biere de Garde from New Belgium.
