Dallas Blonde | Deep Ellum Brewing Company
Style: Blonde Ale
Description: What does it mean to be a Dallas Blonde? Sounds like a loaded question. So load it up did, with citrusy and floral American hops, Pale, Vienna and Wheat malts. Yielding a delicately balanced, and shimmering golden ale. To us, it just goes down easy. 5.2% ABV. 23 IBUs. Many of you likely remember our previous flirtation with an ale of the Blonde persuasion, and while it served its purpose and we moved on. It turns out that we couldn't slake our thirst without a good-time Blonde. However, our tastes in Blondes have changed a bit since our initial offering. The spirit is still similar, but we've revamped the hopping schedule and are introducing a very new hop variety, Meridian, which is rich in fruitiness, with a very mellow, even profile compared to many of the newer super high alpha hop varieties. Our Blonde is certainly in the American tradition and borrows its hop forward character from the subset known as Extra Pale Ale (XPA) and has the body some of the grainy character of a Pale American Wheat. Dallas Blonde is great with bar food like nachos and wings, but is also at home with sushi, chicken satay, and sweet and savory pastries alike.
