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!

22 oz bottle from Spirits Red Bank. Poured a really great looking deep reddish brown with a long lasting average sized frothy beige head. Arms is sweet with notes of grape, toffee, caramel, uncooked dough and yeast. Medium bodied hat is surprisingly dry overall but especially on the aftertaste and average carbonation. Flavor of dry bread, grape skins, yeast and a hint of toffee. Not bad but a little too dry for my taste.

Hoping I have the right one, but I assume it is the 2010 since it was on tap. Beige foam. Orange-red body. Raisiny, grape, harsh, metal, caramel, toffee aroma. Taste is more raisin, fruit, grape, rum, toast, caramel.

7/1/10. Happy July. Bomber into a trappist glass. The pour is brown with reads and a couple millimeter off-white head that fades fast. The aroma is yeasty and Belgian with a hint of sour grape juice. The flavor is surprisingly lacking with dry Belgian, Belgian yeast, and a touch of sweet and sour grape at the very end. Not super impressed.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - JUL 1, 2010
Great juicy concord grape aroma, full and juicy, tannic. Dense figgy body, juicy grape on the top, two sides, works nicely. Simple, not complex, though very tasty and approachable

pours a semi-clear dark copper-red with a very small beige head, and not much lacing. smell of malt, burnt toffee, and fruit. taste is a little thin, malt, caramel, grape, a few hops, and nuts, ends a little tart.

Bomber from I forgot where. Pours a dark ruddy amber with a low foamy beige/tan head. Aroma seems grapey with a malt background. Medium plus body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is roasted malt with some yeast/spice and either fruit or herb. I can’t yet get concord grape, so I must have gotten the aroma wrong. This thing is definitely Belgian. The doppelback apparently just makes it a sweetish Belgian. It finishes pretty balanced, and more fruity than it started. My tongue is getting coated with something that might come from concord grape skins, but it’s hard to say. Definitely a different brew.

kopher (592) - New York, USA - JUN 29, 2010
heavy sweet malty and nutty aroma, as it warms you can smell some manischewitz. pours blurry orange-brown with filmy beige head. somewhat odd flavor, could be grapes, a mix of maltyness and toast with sweet fruit, maybe prune jam on burnt toast. slightly thin, sticky with jammy finish.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 29, 2010
In the bottle at Bill B’s summer beer tasting party. Pours dark chestnut with a thin white head. Almonds, caramel, and grapes to the aroma. The flavor is a bit disappointing. Whimpers away quickly. Some maltiness and a slightly bitter finish. The aroma is the best part. I don’t think that grapes work well in beer.

the brew has a pleasant beer aroma with the slight added wine like addition that surprisingly seems to add rather than (as i anticipated) detract from a good beer experience. the tastes are plum like but truly beer so this is somewhat like a decent tasting maibock or dubbel. so points in my book for being demonstrative. looks a bit like wine it is purpleish in the pour. a gimmick and an experience in one! soulful it is sweet in alcohol and caramel in yeast with some dried fruit.
