look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a plastic cup before the Iris parade on St. Charles St.

A: Hazy brownish/gold with a frothy one finger head that almost stayed for the parade. Lots of lacing and bubbles.

S: Picking up maple syrup, leather and some orangy citrus.

T: Really surprised in a good way! A hearty, robust taste with smokey malts, light citrus and a sweet attitude. Bready with some clove action. A slight hoppy finish.

M: Medium to heavy with chewy carbonation.

O: Glad I got more than one. This is a unique taste that I can get used to.
Let's ride out that Mardi Gras, cher.

Poured from 12 oz into nonic pt glass
Best by: 05/08/14

A - poured orange-yellow, slightly cloudy. Not much head but substantial lace down glass
S - earthy breadiness but somewhat tame maltiness. A little hint of citrus (maybe even strawberries), yeasty.
T - really get a wheaty, straw-like presence with the citrus (mostly orange zest) coming through. Not much hoppiness except for a slight bitterness as it rolls down your throat.
M - excellent light-bodied mouthfeel. It almost "rushes" down your palate.
O - fairly solid beer for what it is. As someone who has (and still) participated in the real "courir de mardi gras", this would be a very solid option on a hayride or horseback. While the taste lacks any "wow factor", this beer is super easy to drink and would go great for a day of reveling the countryside and chasing chickens. Pleasant surprise!

Poured with overwhelming carbonation. Actually took two pours to get the 12 oz bottle into a 16 oz glass. Clean white and fluffy head. Looks cloudy and light yellow. In fact, at first glance it looks like a hefe. Citrus sweetness and some grassiness in the aroma. The flavor is lead by sweet and slightly toasted malt, herbs, touch of grassy biterness from the hops. Banana in the finish, too.

Interesting flavors and really smooth. Worth a shot.

Pours an effervescent honey/gold color with a sliver of pearl colored head. Stays effervescent throughout, minimal lacing & no head retention

S: Pears & a little bit of perfumy hops,

T: Pears, woody hops, white grapes up front. More pears, white grapes, a little leafy hop & dryness as this warms. Finishes crisp, dry with winesap apples & pears

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation, pretty slick as this warms

Not bad, but after trying 3 from these guys, I'm not too thrilled either. Will try more if I can something more interesting from these guys. So far, I could take or leave these guys, but they are good introductions to the styles they are doing...

Bayou Teche Courir de Mardi Gras has a think, soapy, white head and a very hazy orange appearance, with a whole lot of little particles floating about (yeast?). The aroma is faint, but one detects a bit of sweetness. Taste, however, is relatively bold, with sweet malts, bread, hop bitterness, and (I think) a touch of citrus. Mouthfeel is at least medium bodied, and Courir de Mardi Gras finishes dry and very refreshing. Overall, this is another wonderful beer from Bayou Teche Brewing.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip.

A: Golden hue. Pours a quarter finger, bubbly, white head. Settles quickly, leaving just a dusting of foam. Effervescence continues to rise throughout. Sporadic beer ring lacing.

S: Pale grainy tone, with hints of blueberry, cherry, and raspberry.

T: Slightly bitter malt tone that presents with a surprising heartiness. Nicely balanced with a berry 'medley'.

M: Again, bitterness cuts through the palette, and lingers throughout. Light body.

D: Drink in sips, as the bitterness will dictate.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Slight head with a little lacing, and plenty of effervescence. Nose is a nice compliment of grains and mixed berry. Flavor is a bitter grain, with hints of raspberry, blueberry, and cherry. Overall, this is a good quaff.

It is pale and yellow in color, with an average size head. It smells of yeast, bread, slight caramel. It taste of bread, wheat, slight slight citrus in the finish. It is a easy drinking beer. In my amateur opinion, it is too refreshing for a beer when it's still winter.
