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!

mjg74 (2492) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Bomber. Very deep amber in color. Spiced Belgian qualities. Pretty sweet with alot of dark fruit and some spices. Good yeasty nose too. Somewhat sweet up front. Tastes much like a dubbel. Spices and dark fruits. Some roasted maltiness as well. A hint of hop bitterness in the finish. I would consider this a to be a dubbel if I were to drink it blind.

blipp (6148) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - DEC 28, 2010
Bottle. Pours reddish brown with a beige head. The aroma has dark malty notes, fruity grapes, and light earthy notes. The flavor has some molasses like sweetness, grape juice, some lightly roasted malts, and a bit of bitterness in the finish. Solid.

ben4321 (4023) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 28, 2010
Location: 22 oz bottle from Hoboken Vine, 12/28/10

Aroma: The nose is sweet and malty, some grape notes, as well as wood, earth, and booze
Appearance: It pours a brownish color with a slight reddish-purple hue, and almost no head
Flavor: The taste is mostly sweet, lots of grape, dark fruits, and a little earthy hop
Palate: The body is medium, well-rounded, slightly sticky, clean enough, minimal alcohol burn
Overall Impression: I thought this stuff was pretty decent. It is mostly a sweet fruit beer, but it tastes pretty good. I wouldn’t rush out for this one or anything, but it was worth trying. Decent stuff that deserves it’s L’Chaim! -> To Life!

alexanderj (3318) - Branson, Missouri, USA - DEC 16, 2010
Bottle; poured an auburn type color with a fleeting khaki head. Aroma had alot going on; grape, sugar, bubblegum, fruit, caramel, dark fruit and probably alot more. Flavor had a strong grape tone to it. Sweet with alot of dark fruit elements. Pretty easy to drink. Full. Solid.

lovemyipas (544) - nw burbs, Illinois, USA - DEC 13, 2010
pours a cloudy dark copper with a nice light tan creamy head. aroma of light grape juice, belgian yeast, and a little alcohol. this beer also has the dopplebock infusion with nice lacing. flavor is the same as aroma. it is different and good and I also like this version better than the fig and date.

22oz bottle -

Another great beer from He’Brew. Rich dark malts, light Concord grape juice notes, molasses, slightly spicy actually. Molasses and raisin puree play nicely with the grape juice addition. Tootsie Rolls, caramel, and spice cake also show up along with what seems like a Belgian yeast note that keeps taking me back to Maudite.

thornecb (4457) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 26, 2010
Pours mahogany tinged black into a stem glass. Off-white head recedes to hug rim. Sweet chocolate and grape aromas. Sweet with upfront dark raisin turning dry in the lasting malted raisin finish. Dopplebock upfront and dubbel in the finish....

Strykzone (5004) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2010
Very dark with some red. almost stoutlike in appearance. Rich dark fruit in the aroma. The flavor is also defined by dark fruit. Grapes are evident, occasionally rich malts jump to the forefront. Very different, very rich. Not one for everyone.

nwiseman (192) - West Lafayette, Indiana, USA - NOV 21, 2010
Pours syrupy brown with a quickly fading beige head. Most notable aroma is grape juice. Tastes like slightly sour and bitter juice with a medium body. Not crazy about this beer. Tastes a little too much like earwax for me to ignore.

17thfloor (2430) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 19, 2010
Bottle. This is certainly a strange brew. Someone said it tastes just like Manischewitz, lots of concord grape, sweet, one notes, sticky, can’t really handle more than a shot of this.
