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!

5000 (6300) - 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...

PorterPounder (6292) - 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.

Mora2000 (6050) - 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.

thirdeye11 (5817) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 14, 2010
(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.

Strykzone (5624) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2010
Very dark with some red. almost stoutlike in appearance. Rich dark fruit in the aroma. The flavor is also defined by dark fruit. Grapes are evident, occasionally rich malts jump to the forefront. Very different, very rich. Not one for everyone.

TheBeerGod (5595) - 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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5594) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2010
Sampled on draft at 3 Rivers 6 Pack Eatery this beer poured a dark orange-brown color with a large foamy beige head that lingered and produced great lacing. The aroma was sweet with notes of grape, cola, raisin, caramel and pine nuts. The flavor was tart and bitter with a fruity hop presence and notes of grape, raisin, caramel and nut. The finish was long, sweet and a bit hoppy Fairly full bodied. Very nice.

Suttree (5591) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Murky reddish brown, thin ring of foam. Smells like booze, bread, grape and sugar. Very heavy, almost unappealingly so. Definite grapes in the flavor, plus some brown sugar and bourbon. Lots of prune and raisin, too. I didn’t really care for it...

badlizard (5535) - Berkeley, California, USA - DEC 27, 2011
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.
