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!

On tap at Urge. Dark hazy reddish orange amber with a creamy tan head. Caramel grape and white wine aroma with light cola notes. Tastes of grain caramel more red wine flavors than the nose suggests and a tangy lightly sour finish with some sweet apple notes on the back end.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 11, 2011
Bomber. Pours a bruin body with an off white head and poor retention. Dark fruit tones and spicy belgian yeast tones. Cherry, raisin, and some grape notes, feels artificial like fructose syrup and big sweetness. Sugar y and sweet with a lighter spice tone. Etoh latent fruit, some caramel and messy as always.

(22oz bomber thanks to JJFoodie) clear rich amber with no bubbles at all. Nose of grapes, sweet grain, lightly vinous and raisins. Taste of sweet grape, wheat, grain, rye, lightly spicy with an undercarbonated finish and grainy linger.

mcberko (5369) - 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.

Mora2000 (5346) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2010
Thanks to jjfoodie for sharing this bottle. The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is grapes with some toffee and sugar. The grapes are not that strong in the aroma but are present. The flavor is caramel and toffee malt with some sugar and a little bit of grapes. I really thought the grapes would be more prevalent but this is pretty much just a regular doppelbock with a little grape. Not that that is a bad thing, since I really like this style of beer. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

beerguy101 (5267) - Newark, California, USA - JUL 24, 2010
Sampled on 7/23/2010. This fruit beer pours a reddish amber color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with nice lacing. The aroma is fruity and sweet, grapes and yeast. A medium to full bodied fruit beer. The malts are caramel, fruity and sweet. The hops are floral and earthy. A lot of Concord grape flavors and it does add a whole bunch of sweetness to the caramel malts, but it still tastes like beer. Nice balance. Good carbonation. Very smooth tasting. Mouthfeel is full round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

PorterPounder (5200) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2010
Atlanta, Ga. - Hop City Craft Beer and Wine - 22 oz bomber. Medium purple colored pour, slight, off-white head. Fruity aroma, accented by dates, raisins and grapes. Flavor definitely has a heavy grape juice presence. Reminds me somewhat of communion wine with its heavy grape sweetness. Hints of brown baked bread and some dates break up the sugary grape sweetness. Overall, decent.

heemer77 (5080) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 31, 2011
Ruddy and hazy deep rusty red brown. The head is thin and off white. The nose is vinous with lots of dough. There is also some roasted peanut. Spicy with a little bit of yeast. There is also some peanut shell. Hints of peaches and banana peels. Highly carbonated with a dry finish.

TheBeerGod (5053) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - NOV 14, 2010
Bottle. Dark copper pour with a short, frothy beige head. Aroma is sweet with strong fruit notes and lots of malt. Grape juice, sweet malt, caramel, and dark fruit round out the aroma. Taste is big grape juice, dark fruit, sweet malt, caramel and a bit of bitterness. Body is sort of thin, or thinner than I expected. Body is light-medium and I expected this to be a bit meatier, body-wise. Light carbonation. Finishes with more grape juice, light bitter hops, dark fruit notes, and sweet malt.
