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!

phaleslu (8006) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2011
Sample poured from a 22 oz. bottle at St. Louis Microfest 2011. Pours a dark, cloudy plum-amber color with a small tan head. Aroma of fruitcake, raisins, caramel malts, brown sugar, and earth. Flavor of dark fruits (plums, raisins, grapes), caramel malts, toasted brown sugar, earth, and dough. Medium-bodied, with a vinous, malty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Interesting beer.

marcus (7994) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 10, 2010
Pours copper wtih a nice beige head and fruity aroma. There is a funky slightly sour fruity rye malt flavor with a bitter finish. Interesting, but not particularly tasty.

Ibrew2or3 (7661) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 14, 2010
On tap at Datz Deli in Tampa and courtesy of thejohn. It pours clear deep copper with tan head. The aroma is roasty malts, caramel malts, figs, apples, spices, mild assorted fruity sweetness and yeasty spices. The taste is rich in flavor with roasted malts, sweet maltiness, some assorted yeasty and otherwise spiciness and then drying up in the finish with the help of a modest level of roasted malt astringency.

22 oz. bottle shared by shigadeyo (late July 2011). Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small off white head. The aroma has concord grape juice, caramel, toasted bread and a splash of spices. The flavor has much of the same; concord grape, caramel, toasted bread and a hint of spice. This one came off a bit too gimmicky for me.

Ughsmash (7426) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 23, 2010
Bomber. Poured clear coppery-brown with a short, sticky cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up a definite white grape presence over a blend of darker fruit and molasses maltage.. very sweet and candy-like with warm undertones.. Belgian yeast tied it together well. The flavor found raisins and molasses at the core, with touches of chocolate and caramel accenting.. just a little earthy bitterness on the edges.. white grape juice and Belgian yeast rolled freely through the mouth. Medium-bodied and extra sweet.. the doppelbock really came through on the finish.. OK stuff.

blipp (7342) - San Diego, California, 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.

drowland (7112) - Georgia, USA - JUL 1, 2010
7/1/10. Happy July. Bomber into a trappist glass. The pour is brown with reads and a couple millimeter off-white head that fades fast. The aroma is yeasty and Belgian with a hint of sour grape juice. The flavor is surprisingly lacking with dry Belgian, Belgian yeast, and a touch of sweet and sour grape at the very end. Not super impressed.

after4ever (6923) - Brier, Washington, USA - SEP 12, 2010
22. Pours a murky dark amber with a scant and sloppy white head. Big tannic vinous nose. A little oaky almost. Caramel and brown sugar under that. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Caramel, toast, nuts, brown sugar, wine grape skins, and a little oak on the mid palate. Longish vinous finish.

Ernest (6905) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of raisin, date, brown/candy sugar, overripe banana. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. The aroma is pretty much just various types of sugars...it promises to be syrupy sweet before you even put it in your mouth, and alas...it holds to that promise. A clumsy, instantly fatiguing sugar bomb.

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Lets just say that I won’t even go into how the one appears.   Going straight to the flavor.   If you were to take 51% Welches Grape Juice and mix it with say... a piss poor Dubbel... so many I cannot think of one at the moment, well... you wouldnt be far off from what I have here.   Somewhat smells like grape juice, necco wafers, and a really malty amber.   This seems so far off from other years... just can’t wrap my head around it other than to say Alcoholic Grape Juice.   Ugh...
