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.

BVery (11458) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Bottle. Mostly clear orange pour with a big fluffy white head. Aroma is sour cherry. Taste is sour, bready, and complex. Nice!

3.4
hopscotch (11416) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 28, 2003
Deep, hazy golden/orange color. Large, rocky white head. Mostly lasting with excellent lacework. The nose holds notes of soap, citrus and vineous fruit. The flavor is malty and lightly sweet up front, then balanced out nicely on the backside with lightly bitter and astringent citrus fruit peel flavors. Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and very fizzy carbonation. Short, astringent and very dry finish. Citrusy and tart at the wee end. Very refreshing Spring beer! Thanks to jskendzel for this brew!

3.7
DocLock (11189) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2005
I hate round numbers, so this gets me off 1,400. Big thanks to fly for this. Pours turbid orangish with medium white head and much sticky lace. Aroma of malt, hopcit, slight vomit, barnyard, and sweaty female locker room. Tastes malty, with hopcit, earthy peaty esters, and some dusty yeast esters. Smooth finish. Very good balance and complexity. Nice style.

3.6
daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Bottle from JW77. Orangish color. Manure, hay and funk city on the nose. Tart flavors, malt, earthy and woody notes. some fruits lend a nice complexity.

3.8
phaleslu (10894) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2010
22 oz. bottle from Randall’s. Pours a semi-cloudy orange-gold color with a small off-white head. Aroma of farmhouse funk, orange peel, grains, spices normally associated with a fall beer such as nutmeg, pepper, and apples. Flavor of farmhouse funk, orange and lemon citrus, apples, spices, and cereal. Light-medium bodied, with a spicy, funky mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Pretty cool beer.

marcus (10866) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 29, 2009
This copper ale poured with a fluffy white head and a spice and yeast aroma. The flavor is much more mellow than I expected, yet very flavorful, with a nice malt base, lots of interesting spices and a subtly bitter finish. Surprisingly, not very sour.

3.1
onceblind (10862) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 14, 2010
This pours out a light copper, almost golden colour. Smells primarily of cherries, but I also get a bit of licorice and basement funk. The taste of this beer hits the tongue with cherries and overripe peaches, however there is not much else I can detect. Finishes a bit like rice lager to create a complex and interesting taste profile
