COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
I love this beer! A nod to both Belgian and American brewers Biere De Crème is an inspired Cream Ale. Here in Athens Ohio springtime is beautiful. The weather is fantastic, young spirited students are out and about and everybody is looking for an easy drinking beer with that same playful feeling, Biere de Crème is that brew. Traditionally American brewers would add a portion of corn to lighten up the body in cream ales. I choose to take this a different direction by adding clear Belgian candied syrup. Belgian and American malts help add soft nuances culminating into a very unique beer that is a delight to quaff.

ABV: 5%

Non Beer Trip Beer Trip Beer #12. Keg at the brewery. Clear pale golden, medium foamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of grassy hops, corn, doughy malt. The taste is grassy hops, lemon juice, pale crackery malts, corn. Medium bodied, clean, lingering bitterness. 50th cream ale rating!

Draft at Cappy’s during the Jackie O’s tap takeover, served in a flight. Pours a clear pale gold with a white head that settles into an island of film, a ring, and a few ropes of lace in the glass. Notes of hay, sweet bready and cereal malts, creamed corn, residual sugars, and a hint of grassy hops. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, semi-sweet mouthfeel. Good example of the style.

Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Pours a clear pale golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have grassy and herbal hops, pale Pilsner malts, lightly toasted bread, some subtle sweetness, just not too much for me to get excited about, light, lager, good for what it is but...

JStax (7123) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Poured on draft at Jackie-O’s. Pours a very light gold color with a nice white head of foam with good retention and lacing. The aroma is very light grainy, bready notes. The taste has a lot of biscuity bready notes that really make this beer shine. Bready notes come through wonderfully in the finish. Great summer beer.

JaBier (8156) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Sample on the brewery side on 9/13/12. Clear yellow/gold pour with a medium white head. Aroma of grassy hops, malt and corn. Malty flavor with grassy hop character and a corn flake finish.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 25, 2011
Pale yellow - slightly green-hued color, nearly clear, thin white head that left decent lacing. Crisp, nice palate. Unfortunately this was nearly tasteless, but from what was there it just tasted like a non-offensive pale lager. This was my first cream ale, so I don’t know what they’re typically supposed to taste like, but I expected this to be... Creamier. Or at least have more of a creme aroma. Totally drinkable, though, and a good alternative for those who want to try a Jackie-Os brew but want something lighter.

Now listed at 4.25% and described as a "Belgian inspired cream ale." Thanks to Brad for the pour of this one. Pours a light golden-yellow color with a good white head and a few bits of spotty lacing on the way down. The aroma carries some nice spice from the Belgian yeast plus a touch of doughy-bread. Light continental hops linger as well, especially as it warms. The flavor is really nice as the clove character from the yeast really comes through along with a light burst of floral and herbal hops. Really nicely down. Smooth and creamy, yet with a light body. Absolutely fantastic low-alcohol, warm-weather-drinking beer. Who knew a cream ale could taste good?

Dogbrick (13518) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 11, 2009
Sample at the brewpub. This beer pours a clear golden color with a thin white head that bubbles away quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. The aroma is mild hops and spices with a bit of honey. Light bodied with a mildly bitter hops character and notes of cloves and pepper. The finish is lightly hopped and lingers a bit. Decent overall.
