Biere de Mars
With earthy tones of ripe mango and lemon verbena, this bottle-conditioned ale reflects the hearty character of the southern Belgian and northern French countrysides. Brewed with barley, oats and wheat malt, Biere de Mars' celestial orange hue inspired the planetary play on words.
A Beer Out of This World
"A celestial collision of orange-hued ale, citrusy lemon verbena, and unidentified flying Brettanomyces".
Biere de Mars’ celestial orange hue inspired the planetary play on words. Brettanomyces is a wild yeast strain that spoils many beers but here lends a mild grassy, barnyard flavor and creates a refreshingly sour smack across the palate.
Pours murky rust orange with a thin, foamy head. Aroma is an intriguing blend of spices and floral hops with slight cookie-like malts. There seems to be a light bready note with a slight nutty undertone.
The flavor starts off with the fruit and spiced saison esthers, that lean towards lemon peel, toffee, nutmeg, and perhaps allspice. A beer with a lot of character, it was surprisingly easy to drink. Not spectacular, but a really good beer.
