Biere de Mars pours a cloudy-chunky orange and is both rusty in not only color, but flavor as well. There is a metallic tang that follows the initial notes of the brew.
More importantly, the beer has a good citrus flavor. It's smooth and warm, with minor notes of a bitterness from the hops. However, there is a slightly unpleasant and lingering aftertaste.
This beer is complex and has potential to be warm as well as refreshing...seemingly a paradox. I might have to have another one to have a better perspective of this beer.

Thanks to Yoshi Optimator for this one! Cheers!
A - Hazy amber/apricot color with 2 fingers of soapy tan bubbles. Zero lacing with a thin cap.
S - Earthy citrus, acidic, white wine, granny smith apples, sharp sourdough bread, dusty grains, over ripe tropical fruit, pineapple and mango, sweet but funky. Fruity alcohol coming through.
T - Follows the nose with earthy citrus, grainy bread, peppery, old grass, apple juice, muted lemons, dry yeast. There's a hint of acidity, but not as much as the nose describes. The finish brings more pepper along with some bitter melon rind.
M - Annoyingly high carbonation, you can't hold a drink in your mouth for more than 2 seconds or it just completely turns to foam. The body is thin for a split second. So you have extreme opposites.
I'm not exactly sure but pretty sure this is a few years old. An interesting beer for sure. The mouthfeel threw it off a little for me. I'm not a fan of swallowing straight foam. Great aroma. The funk is delicate without being light, very earthy with notes of sourdough bread and tropical fruit.
