A new bottled addition to Bruery Terreux’s Frucht Series was inspired by the Greyhound, a classic cocktail made with grapefruit juice and vodka garnished with a salted rim.
According to a label submitted to the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), that beer is Frucht: Grapefruit & Salt, a 4 percent ABV “Berlin-style tart wheat beer” aged in oak foeders with grapefruit and salt. The ale debuted as a draft-only release earlier this month, but this is the first time it has been packaged.
The beer is being released under The Bruery’s Terreux brand and part of its Frucht Series, which consists of oak-aged berliner weisse-style beers that incorporate different fruits. As with all of the Frucht releases, Frucht: Grapefruit & Salt will be packaged in 750ml bottles.
An email sent to the brewery for additional information was not immediately returned.
