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!

magsinva (860) - Virginia, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Bottle - TW & More Sterling - pours a murky dark orange with a quickly vanishing white head. Aroma is a bit meaty and funky to me. This has been aging for a year so that affects things. Taste is weird, a bit bitter finishes dry. Overall, it’s OK.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Bottle/22oz - Pours a reddish brown in color with a small off-white head that faded quick and produced some very minor lacing on the glass. Aroma has the distinct concord grapiness that you would expect and sticky sweet. Some Belgian yeast. Flavor is very muddled mix of grape, mild pine hops and very sweet malts. Good experiment... the result is not that good. I have had other concord grape beers much better than this one... disappointing result from a quality brewer...

badlizard (5539) - Berkeley, California, USA - DEC 27, 2011
On tap at Urge. Dark hazy reddish orange amber with a creamy tan head. Caramel grape and white wine aroma with light cola notes. Tastes of grain caramel more red wine flavors than the nose suggests and a tangy lightly sour finish with some sweet apple notes on the back end.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Murky reddish brown, thin ring of foam. Smells like booze, bread, grape and sugar. Very heavy, almost unappealingly so. Definite grapes in the flavor, plus some brown sugar and bourbon. Lots of prune and raisin, too. I didn’t really care for it...

DiarmaidBHK (3347) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2011
Bottle from total wine Sterling. They were guarding this stuff like it was gold. You had to ask for it by name. Talk about overkill. It’s one of the least aesthetically pleasing beers I’ve seen so far. It looks like flat coke. It smells a bit like grape juice with a slight hint of Belgian yeast. The taste is muddled. It finishes with a slight tartness. I can’t believe I bought two bottles of this crap.

1FastSTi (3333) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 28, 2011
Tap. Pours to a deep brown body with a thin tan head. The aroma and flavors are oddly figgy even though there aren’t figs in this? Perhaps some dates and prunes too. It’s pretty malty and I liked it pretty well. Sweet, but not sugary and/or sticky.

5000 (6184) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Lets just say that I won’t even go into how the one appears.   Going straight to the flavor.   If you were to take 51% Welches Grape Juice and mix it with say... a piss poor Dubbel... so many I cannot think of one at the moment, well... you wouldnt be far off from what I have here.   Somewhat smells like grape juice, necco wafers, and a really malty amber.   This seems so far off from other years... just can’t wrap my head around it other than to say Alcoholic Grape Juice.   Ugh...

AirForceHops (2951) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 17, 2011
22 oz. bottle purchased @ Table and Vine, West Springfield, MA. Used a lager glass. Murky brown color (Like muddy river water) Off white head that died fast. No lace. Good carbonation level. Nose smells like Welch’s Grape juice. Tastes of grapes, malt, caramel, fig and nuts. Medium body. Oily texture becomes dry in the finish. A very odd blend. It has a Bock –like quality but… I’m not telling my friends to run out and buy a bottle of this.
