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!

22oz bomber poured into a shaker. Pours a lightly cloudy brownish purple with minimal off-white head. Aroma of figs and dark fermented fruits with a good dose of concord wine. Taste is medium bitter. Caramel, some pine and some roasty nuts. Medium bodied with a thin texture. Soft carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. Not really what I was expecting but still ok. I wish I would have got this fresh because I’m sure it would be a lot better. But, since I got it for $3 on the discount rack, I’ll gladly finish the bottle.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - FEB 16, 2012
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!

magsinva (1250) - Virginia, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Bottle - TW & More Sterling - pours a murky dark orange with a quickly vanishing white head. Aroma is a bit meaty and funky to me. This has been aging for a year so that affects things. Taste is weird, a bit bitter finishes dry. Overall, it’s OK.

VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Bottle/22oz - Pours a reddish brown in color with a small off-white head that faded quick and produced some very minor lacing on the glass. Aroma has the distinct concord grapiness that you would expect and sticky sweet. Some Belgian yeast. Flavor is very muddled mix of grape, mild pine hops and very sweet malts. Good experiment... the result is not that good. I have had other concord grape beers much better than this one... disappointing result from a quality brewer...

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.

draft. Pours cloudy amber foamy off white head, nose oxidized cardboard plums and cherries flavors oxidized malt, stale malt, plums, bland, old doughy malts

Suttree (6392) - 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...

DiarmaidBHK (4909) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2011
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.
