Lips of Faith – Biere de Mars

biere_de_mars

From New Belgium Brewing’s “Lips of Faith” series, Biere de Mars is a spring seasonal called an “Ale brewed with spices.”  It’s brewed with wild yeast which gives a bit of a Belgian scent in the nose, and lots of fruitiness all the way through.  There isn’t any bitterness in this beer, and really not a lot of spice either.  This seems like a fruit beer to me.  There some subtle orange flavors throughout, some banana in the finish, and a hint of cherry in the background.  I’m betting that if you like fruit beers, you’ll like this beer.   It’s a fine beer, but doesn’t really grab me.

I give it a 3.5 out of 5.
