COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
I love when you open a door or turn a corner and realize there is an entire world that you’d never imagined existed, that’s in fact overflowing with people, schemes, and action. 2010 Sacred Species #3 seemed so obvious-Grapes. Noah’s first vineyard debacle (Genesis 9:20) to Dionysus, mythical Bacchus to Bar Mitzvah bad boys, Mogen David and Manischewitz. Appropriately Epic shtick. How many cups of Concord in childhood and many times have I heard: "But Jews don’t drink beer!" This year we came across the raging debates, alternative science, internet controversy and tribal rivalry of World Records relating to Š Grapes. Speed catching (67 in one minute, 1189 in 30 minutes!); Solo throw, run, catch (40 ft!!); Longest distance (354’4", shot from a water balloon launcher!!!); Greatest Height record (788 ft skyscraper!!!!) For this third incarnation of Rejewvenator I’m simply letting the mythological and pop cultural shtick rest and slurping together with all of you in a toast to this bizarre and delicious freakshow that we call Life... L’Chaim!

Floback (522) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - AUG 11, 2010
Bottle from Total Wine. Pours a muddy amber/brown with orange hues and a rim of white froth for a head. I can definitely catch a whiff of sweet and tart grape in the aroma with outlying notes of biscuit. Flavors of concord grapes, Soft/medium carbonation and medium body. There’s apparent grape presence in the finish as well. I thought the body and soft carbonation were slightly out-of-balance here. A decent beer overall.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4785) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2010
Sampled on draft at 3 Rivers 6 Pack Eatery this beer poured a dark orange-brown color with a large foamy beige head that lingered and produced great lacing. The aroma was sweet with notes of grape, cola, raisin, caramel and pine nuts. The flavor was tart and bitter with a fruity hop presence and notes of grape, raisin, caramel and nut. The finish was long, sweet and a bit hoppy Fairly full bodied. Very nice.

mazel tov, jjfoodie. Smells like Welch’s grape juice & swisher sweets. Not a fan. But mazel tov, anyhow.

Sammer (1025) - Plano, Texas, USA - AUG 7, 2010
Bottle shared by jjfoodie. Aroma is huge grape Kool Aid. Taste is overpowering concord grapes and sugar. Finish is slightly sweet, with a nice alcohol warmer. Very unusual and interesting.

Mora2000 (5527) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2010
Thanks to jjfoodie for sharing this bottle. The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is grapes with some toffee and sugar. The grapes are not that strong in the aroma but are present. The flavor is caramel and toffee malt with some sugar and a little bit of grapes. I really thought the grapes would be more prevalent but this is pretty much just a regular doppelbock with a little grape. Not that that is a bad thing, since I really like this style of beer. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

nick76 (4170) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2010
The aroma is fruity with malt, caramel, leaves, and spices. The appearance is deep amber with a small - medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is full and smooth. Overall this is a good beer.

Dorwart (2359) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 1, 2010
Thin off-white head of varying sized bubbles that does not last long. Very plummy and raisiny aroma with some sweet malts, carmel and maybe a hint of anise. Color is a dark mahagony brown. A bit of a watery palate. Kind of dry and chalky with more raisins and sweet malts with a touch of roastyness late swallow. Light alcohol presence. Not one of may favorite brews from this brewer. Simply ok.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Dark amber pour with a thick off-white head. Aroma is sweet, candy-ish, and dominated by concord grapes, dark dried fruit and syrupy toffee character. Flavor is heavy on concord grape, reminding me most of grape jelly, brown bread toast, toffee candy character. I found the grape flavor to be more peculiar than enjoyable, but I have never been that fond of the flavor of concord grape juice.

randy1301 (265) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 24, 2010
22oz bottle.Pours a purple/red with a similar colored head.Nose is grape and banana.Taste is belgian yeast up front with grape and the maltiness of a bock on the back.As this brew warms it gets more heavy on the belgian aspects.Very tasty sipper that hides the abv well.Where this beer falls short is complexity.It needs a bit more of..well everything.Decent beer but nothing special.
