The latest in my beers of Texas series Texas Blonde from Wild Acre Brewing is a blond with more character than most of the beers in this style have.
Texas Blond Poured from a 12 ounce can into a pint glass. Texas Blonde is a golden color and slightly hazy. The color is almost a brassy. A nice white head formed and lingered for a long while. The aroma presents a slight hint of yeast and perhaps a bit of oxidation. These are followed by jasmine, fresh-cut grass, oats, and lemongrass.
The best thing about the taste of Texas Blonde is it tastes like a blond beer. I get a slightly biscuity yeast element, and hints of grassy hops, jasmine, lemongrass, and fruity esters. It’s quite full-bodied and soft, this is a surprising blonde ale.
“Texas Blonde is a year-round brand released by Wild Acre Brewing Company in 2017. Texas Blonde is light to medium bodied, well balanced, and naturally possesses pineapple and mango notes from the addition of coveted Azacca Hops. The iconic Bluebonnet adorning the center of the can harkens the famous Spring bloom along Texas highways. It is refreshing, low in bitterness, and fitting for the Texas climate throughout the year.”
Texas Blonde is exactly what I want in a blond beer. This is a beer to have sitting by the pool on a hot Texas Saturday afternoon. It has the body and mouthfeel to satisfy while being light enough that you will not feel bloated. Pair this beer at your next back yard cookout or tailgating at a football game. Serve it with hamburgers, hot dogs, BBQ, and chicken wings.
