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!

Drake (10806) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Bomber from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear ruby red color with a large tan creamy head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of grapes, brown sugar, dark malts, toffee and an earthy finish. The taste is fairly bitter with notes of toffee, apple and raisins. Medium bodied. Decent.

daknole (10346) - 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.

hopscotch (10180) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 15, 2010
Bottle… Clear copper ale with a large, fluffy, off-white head. Excellent retention. The bouquet is reminiscent of a Belgian dubbel or quad – mild chocolate, lots of dried dark fruits (raisins, dates and fig) clove and black bread. Full-bodied with a creamy/slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Bland, modest, minerally bitterness dominates the flavor, but allows notes of medium-dark sherry and fallen dark fruit to peek through. Finishes bland and very lightly acidic.

mcberko (10034) - 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.

crossovert (9721) - Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2011
It is sweet and malty, but not what you look for in the style. A failed expeiment.

GT2 (9410) - Oceanside, California, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Tap at CK thanks to nmann08. Pours a clear orange to amber. Spotty lacing. Weak foam. Nose is tomato, oilive, mint, pimento, harbs, candies. Taste is mint, toffee, tobacco. Palate is decently malty, spicy. Weird stuff.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - 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.

DocLock (8667) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Bomber from Capone’s. Pours chill hazy ruby deep coppery with clingy 2 finger off-white head. Nose is that house quality nose of acidic caramel malt, mild hops, with ESBish tannins and mild fruit. Tastes caramel malty, not sweet, with some ESB tannic notes, stays pretty bitter, with some hops, not very complex. Finishes dry and gets drier as it warms. Comesacross like a poor man’s Fuller’s vintage ale. I got very little grape juice in this, and methinks it might have been a good idea to add it later along in the fermentation process.

DuffMan (8152) - 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.

sebletitje (8008) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 17, 2010
22oz bottle. light brown color, off-white aroma, definitely a nice touch of grape juice / red fruits, malty, Belgian yeast in the abbey style. flavors, yeasty, grape, abbey style Belgian yeast, also get hints of caramel and chocolate. The whole blend of grape along with the abbey style is just perfect. I thought this was going to turn into a big sour grape fest, and everthing came out nicely balanced.
