Poured into a tulip glass. Pours slightly hazy golden with a thick white head and some visible bubbles rising in the beer. The aroma is grainy and sweet. There's some mild citrus in the smell and a faint hint of spice. The flavor is sweet and bready and there's some mild back end hop bitterness. There's some of that citrus as well as some banana and very little spiciness. The body is medium with moderate carbonation. The finish is dry and the beer drinks in a very refreshing manner. This is an excellent beer.

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.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #74 (Mar 2013):

Brewer’s intention is clear, as they mention that not many beers of this style are imported into the US, and perhaps even fewer are brewed here. Incredibly complex without losing its drinkable character. A prize choice here, we’d love to run into this brew every Fat Tuesday.

STYLE: Bière De Mars
ABV: 7.5%
AVAILABILITY: Seasonal

LOOK: Perfect lacing, pale copper hue

SMELL: Spicy, cotton candy, floral, herbal tea, bready, earthy, mild esters

TASTE: Sufficient crispness, peppery, gummy, ripe pears, slightly biscuity, vague mint, semidry palate, herbal, faint warmth, phenolic, drying finish

A - Golden yellow with a touch of red. Nice head at first which quickly fades but a persistent thin layer of head as the beer is drunk. Slight haze.

S - Bready, touch of sweetness. Something floral in the background (my current sinus issues aren't helping). Little hop aroma.

T - Malty sweetness immediately gives way to hop bitterness (some American hop best I can tell, but again, sinuses), but still malty sweetness is there. Fairly smooth and well rounded; lager like character.

M - Medium body, high carbonation.

O - Nice malty beer rounded out by the use of the hops. I would've have liked to see a hops with a little less residual bitterness, but still a very nice example.

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.
