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!

22oz bottle.Pours a purple/red with a similar colored head.Nose is grape and banana.Taste is belgian yeast up front with grape and the maltiness of a bock on the back.As this brew warms it gets more heavy on the belgian aspects.Very tasty sipper that hides the abv well.Where this beer falls short is complexity.It needs a bit more of..well everything.Decent beer but nothing special.

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.

Pours a beautiful deep garnet with a lasting creamy head. Nose is fresh baked pastry, candy sugar, and grape with some other mix of light and dark fruits. Medium to heavy mouthfeel with grape, blueberry pie filling, and sugary baked goods coming through. Some minor alcohol notes. Nice beer but almost too much.

22oz btl. Pours a clear copper with a thin white head. Has a malty grape aroma. Taste smooth and sweet of grape (obviously) and definitely a some wine notes. Not bad.

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.

Tan head not lasting, clear reddish brown color, sweet grape malt aromas, watery smooth with sutle carbonation, smooth watery feel, weet malty flavor with a wine like finish, surprisingly suble change sherry like as it warmed.

I like this beer I really do but it has a strange flavor. The aroma is that of grapes with a nutty background. Grapes and nuts...hmmm. Upon tasting, nuts are easily detected with a slight grape profile. Very interesting brew indeed. The color is an excellent deep brown hue that lets others know that you are someone who knows what they like in their glass. Definitely worth giving a shot and why not try the others if you come upon them.

22oz bottle poured into a Belgian lambic flute. Appearance: Pours a hazy amber/brown in glass. Not much of a head, was white and soon dissipated...the flute could have something to do with it. Aroma: Not surprising, the sweetness of grape juice right off the start. Pear, pineapple, cherries, oranges, light molasses. Taste: Sweet grape taste...flat, not much carbonation at all. Could have waited too long to drink? The taste seems way more toned down than the aroma. Palate: Smooth, light-med bodied, some fizzy feel. Overall: It’s good but I expected a lot more. Curious to know if the taste is related to the age. Not bad at all, but I prefer the previous Rejewvenator years a lot more.
