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!

502Che (999) - @, CAMBODIA - MAR 5, 2011
Bomber . Medium brown body with small unimpressive offwhite head. Slight purpleish hue to the body as well. Aroma is mostly pretty faint and mostly of light malt, slight belgian yeast, and a hint of purple grape juice. The flavor is a bit fuity, but not as much as I expected. Its simple and balanced but not too outgoing. One thing though, the alcohol is hidden unbelievably well. it tastes like a 4% abv session beer. Medium bodied with minimal carbonation. Smooth and refreshing mouth feel. Overall: not a bad beer. Its very balanced and refreshing and truly "dangerously drinkable"

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 2, 2011
Bottle on 10/25/2010. Clear dark amber body with a small creamy off-white head. Sweet fruit, caramel and malt aroma, with light grape hints. Sweet grape flavor with some fruit and caramel. Medium full body with moderately low carbonation.

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 28, 2011
On tap at the AZ Strong Beer Fest, February 2011. Pours a deep mahogany with a thick off-white head. The nose is concord grape jelly, spice and sweet caramel. The taste is spice, dark fruits, grape soda. Medium mouthfeel. Weird beer.

EithCubes (4902) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 24, 2011
Bottle. Rich malty nose a lot like a prime Doppelbock, some beautiful airy caramel with light spice and a little hop prickling, seemingly a little rye, too. Dark amber-chestnut pour with a rocky and everlasting tan head, has great legs and the tiniest bubbles you ever did see. A little grain and more than a little stray alcohol floating around the mouth, has scratchy bitterness on the bottom and muddled toffee from the middle through to the end. Drier but not thin, I guess well-attenuated on account of the grapes? Very light sparkling rock candy sort of tones, hinting at mineral water (has to be Belgian yeast). Medium-full body muddles a bit and slickens the dorsal areas. Pretty safe to say this is an original idea, and its uniqueness aside, it holds up pretty well on the hedonism scale.

daknole (9114) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Kind of a reddish pour. Aroma of toffee, grape juice, honey and some golden raisins. Flavor is sweet, malty, caramel, toffee, grapes, kosher grape wine. Weird. Almost good. Almost.

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2011
Deep amber pour. The aroma is very sweet and malty. Quite plummy and sweet with a lot of pale malt flavour. It actually doesn’t come across grapey or anything like that. A little peppery booziness across the back of the palate, but it’s still pretty drinkable. Soft palate with a light caramelly sweetness. A little bit of chewiness. The light Belgian yeast spiciness gives a kiss of slightly spiciness as well. All in all, a pretty tasty brew.

Pours a purplish mahogany color with a big creamy off white head that does not care to stick around very long. The aroma produces a lot of fruity notes (grapes and cherry), with a pleasant sweetness. This bottle caught my attention due to its claim of being “half Dopplebock half Belgian Dubbel”. I have never heard of such a combination so I am intrigued. Upfront there is a slick caramel toffee sweetness from the malt. I also get notes of figs and prunes. Did I mention that this ale is brewed with All Natural Concord Grape Juice? The grapes steal the show from here, with a flavor reminding me of Juicy Juice. Red grapes provide a very wine like complexity. The finish is really what distinguishes this beer. It is very dry and leaves the taste of grapes lingering around just like any wine would. At moments I forgot I am even drinking a beer. It has a medium body with mellow carbonation, that goes down easily. 8.2% ABV is well disguised.

boFNjackson (4134) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 31, 2011
Bottle... Poured deep, dark near purple with a thin gray head. Nose had some grape soda like tones. Mildly dry, moderate carbonation. Grape notes, slightly bitter. Dark malts and brown sugar sweetness. A little bit of cocoa, and dry yeastiness. Good mouthfeel, but overall lacking.

IrishBoy (3836) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JAN 13, 2011
Bomber from BevMo Salinas. Nose is prunes, wheat with slight banana and cough syrup, and some light breadiness. Cloudy brown with a medium beige head. Flavor is molasses and grapes with a bit of light sweetness and a hint of bitterness.Flavors and aromas just don’t meld together well, lots of them there, but not nice to my senses.
