Hoboken. Bodi Blonde
SURFS UP DUDE!
I’m not a big fan of coconut in beer. I never quite came across one that I thought was that great. But when I saw Hoboken Brewing Company’s Bodi Blonde I knew I had to try it. Firstly, with the warm weather hitting the North East, a nice refreshing blonde beer was on the cards. Secondly, this beer is in homage to the movie Point Break! Not the 2015 remake, that was terrible. I’m talking the 1991 Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves classic.
Anyway, movie aside, this beer delivered on what it promised. Pouring a sunny golden hue, the brew gives off a mellow malt profile with lemon zest and coconut hint. The zest follows in the taste with a bit more coconut up front but not coming across too strong as to overpower the other flavors. Many folks aren’t too impressed with blonde ales as they are generally on the light side with a more subtle flavor profile. But’s that’s the beauty of them, and it takes more effort to craft a good one. Bodi Blonde hits the spot, perfect for the beach or a sunny day, with just enough coconut to elevate it without wiping out!
5.5% ABV / 31 IBU | Hoboken, NJ
