RateBeer.com -- Correct Red Duck GruiterRed Duck Gruiter

At Red Duck we like to make a few interesting ales,and for our modern tastes this is one of them. But consider this, that once, all ales were dark, smokey and due to being stored in oak barrels, were to various degrees soured. Last time we made a dark medieval ale “canute the gruit” and promised to go one greater.. or Gruiter, as the case may be. Behold! Red Duck Gruiter is our version of what an ale may have been like around the time of the Renaisance. Malting technology had improved a little since medieval times, and so it was possible to obtain malts that were not totally scorched. Thus Red Duck Gruiter is not very smokey at all, but does have a strong roast black barley flavour, with a moderate sourness and some other interesting flavours hiding in the darkness. You still couldnt get a pale light ale, that wasnt due until after the 1642, and so will lead us to next years gruit ale, which will be the Gruitest...
