Beau’s All Natural Buenos Días Gruit Ale

Beau’s All Natural Brewing (from Ontario) sent me some beers to try a few weeks ago and I had saved the Buenos Días Gruit Ale for last as it sounded the most intriguing. Made using orange peel, lime peel, lime juice and a touch of sea salt, and just a touch of hops. On the very first sip there isn’t much going on, just crisp malt flavour and a good amount of carbonation. Then the citrus flavours develop with a little bitter bite, finishing off slightly salty. Reminds me of drinking a Corona right after doing a proper tequila shot, minus the tequila. Very refreshing and an interesting concept, but this might be a bit out there flavour wise for traditionalists.
