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!

zach8270 (3489) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 24, 2011
(bottle - 22 oz) Dark copper pour with a very thin white head. Sweet and fruity aroma with lots of grape and malt hints. Fruity flavor at the start with tons of grape and malt flavors. Dry and malty middle that leads to a slightly bitter and lingering fruit aftertaste.

roder60 (1285) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2011
Pours a medium hazy brown red color with quickly dissapating tan head. Aroma is very sweet with some earthy dark cherry notes and some belgian yeasty spice. Flavor is like a nice dubbel with a little more kick. Dark fruits and sweet caramel flavors dominate accented by some yeastiness and syrup flavors as well as an earthy hop presence and slight warmth. Overall, enjoyable.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 11, 2011
Bomber. Pours a bruin body with an off white head and poor retention. Dark fruit tones and spicy belgian yeast tones. Cherry, raisin, and some grape notes, feels artificial like fructose syrup and big sweetness. Sugar y and sweet with a lighter spice tone. Etoh latent fruit, some caramel and messy as always.

phaleslu (6555) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2011
Sample poured from a 22 oz. bottle at St. Louis Microfest 2011. Pours a dark, cloudy plum-amber color with a small tan head. Aroma of fruitcake, raisins, caramel malts, brown sugar, and earth. Flavor of dark fruits (plums, raisins, grapes), caramel malts, toasted brown sugar, earth, and dough. Medium-bodied, with a vinous, malty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Interesting beer.

cfrancis (2377) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 8, 2011
Picked this up because I enjoyed the previous year so much. Shouldn’t have though. Pours a dirty brown with a almost non existent white head. Aroma is grape juice and malt. Taste is like a big glass of Welch’s grape juice with sweet malt. It’s one of those combinations that should have been left alone.

ChainGangGuy (4386) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 8, 2011
Appearance: Presents a darkened amber-brown body of modest clarity and a medium-sized, beige head with fairly decent staying power. Smell: A scent of dark bread, liberally toasted, and served up alongside varying notes smelling of packed brown sugar, concentrated grape juice, and a drop of molasses. Taste: Toasted bread spread over with dark brown sugar and crushed rock candy for a fairly sweet taste overall. Dark fruits along with a swig of Juicy Juice. Small hint of nutmeg spice. Minor bitterness, though it sustains until the drying, warming finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Moderate carbonation. Overall: It’s different and interesting to some degree, but the flabby sweetness throughout has me happy I’m only stuck to an eleven ounce goblet and not a twenty-two ounce bottle.

Cloudy ruby brown color. Medium head. Aroma and taste are very dubbel to me. Grape in both aroma and taste.

heemer77 (5102) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 31, 2011
Ruddy and hazy deep rusty red brown. The head is thin and off white. The nose is vinous with lots of dough. There is also some roasted peanut. Spicy with a little bit of yeast. There is also some peanut shell. Hints of peaches and banana peels. Highly carbonated with a dry finish.

DuffMan (6802) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 28, 2011
Bomber, shared with jeff. Medium amber, slightly hazy, robust rocky off white head. Aroma is toasty malt and Welch’s grape jelly. Very interesting aroma. I’m not sure if it is the power of suggestion, but the grape aroma was undeniable for me. On the palate, the grapejuice element is more subdued, lending a fruity sweetness to the dominant toasty toffee malt. Hints of cocoa, piecrust, and tea. Very interesting brew. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and found it very interesting (and dangerously easy) to drink.

It is sweet and malty, but not what you look for in the style. A failed expeiment.
