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!

Murky brown - purple beer, small cream coloured head. Smooth palate with mild carbonation. Fairly malty with a trace of marmite. Mild tangy grape juice. Fairly neutral finish. Quite drinkable but pretty simplistic. Overall a bit malty.

A: The pour is a dark amber color, maybe burnt orange, with a fluffy off-white head that settles down to a thin layer. S: Sweet fruits on the nose, which does have some grape character, but not overly vinous. A definite malt and caramel note as well. T: Semi-sweet and malty on the tongue without too much in terms of grape flavor. There is a bit of a fruit sweetness, but I can’t tell if that’s from the base beers (apparently a blend of doppelbock and dubbel). Overall, the flavor is on the bland side. M: The body is medium and so is the carbonation. There’s a bit of a flat feel overall to the beer, though. D: Really underwhelming. I’ve enjoyed several of the He’Brew beers, but I can’t say this is one of them. Just not much going on in terms of flavors.

mcberko (14684) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 1, 2010
22 oz. bottle, pours dark reddish brown with a small beige head. Aroma of grapes, caramel malts, dates, figs, some brown sugar and molasses. Flavour is a hybrid of a grapes / Doppelbock / Abbey Dubbel, with the grapes on the initial flavour, with the darker fruits, molasses and burnt caramel filling out the middle and finish. Quite nice, though the 2009 special was superior.

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.

Tmoney99 (13615) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Bottle shared by shigadeyo. Poured hazy reddish brown with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate tart grape and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet & sour fruit flavor and a medium sweet & sour finish of moderate duration. Good young that should be better with some age.
