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!

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.

Pours a muddy brown with a beige head and sweet, fruity aroma of grape juice and caramel. Taste is sweet and very fruity with a lot of grape flavor coming through along with lighter caramel and malt notes. Unique brew, too much grape and fruit for me

In honor of Hanukkah 2012 we are doing a flight of He’Brew beers that will most surely dissapoint. To start the night we had this beer... Well all i can say is this is what I would imagine The Grape Ape’s pee would taste like. Weirdly artificial grape drank and strange nutty maltiness. Strange and bad.

Bottle from total wine Sterling. They were guarding this stuff like it was gold. You had to ask for it by name. Talk about overkill. It’s one of the least aesthetically pleasing beers I’ve seen so far. It looks like flat coke. It smells a bit like grape juice with a slight hint of Belgian yeast. The taste is muddled. It finishes with a slight tartness. I can’t believe I bought two bottles of this crap.

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.

It is sweet and malty, but not what you look for in the style. A failed expeiment.

Very malty and cloying sweet and very grapey grape drank, sucks bad.

Bomber. Pours a surprisingly muddy brown pour with no appreciable head. Nose is sweet, and fruity with a predominance of overripe grapes. Taste is malty, sweet and very fruity. Finish is very sweet and borders on nauseating. Nice try, but not for me. Quaff Score 4 / 10

Bottle served in Duvel snifter: Pours a reddish brown with a surprisingly short lived head and minimal lacing. The aroma has notes of grape juice, honey, brown sugar, crystal and toasted malts, and some antiseptic vapour. The taste has some fruitiness but seemed flat and almost stale. Versus most HeBrew big beers this one is rather mundane and utterly boring, not even the malt pop on this. Washed out flavor profile and chalky medicinal finish. Heck, this is not even boozy and hot like some of its stablemates and that would have even been welcomed to excite this flabby blahness. The tepid mouth feel just adds to the ... wait I dosed off there for a second, oh yeah this is a disappointing offering to say the least. Epic fail!
