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!

Tampa Wkly Gathering @Datz thank Mike/beergeek-on tap-pours a tan head and dark copper color. Aroma is sweet medium malt, medium/dark fruit, secondary earthy hops. Taste is sweet medium malt, medium/dark fruit, spice/earthy hops bite.

daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Kind of a reddish pour. Aroma of toffee, grape juice, honey and some golden raisins. Flavor is sweet, malty, caramel, toffee, grapes, kosher grape wine. Weird. Almost good. Almost.

hopscotch (11246) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 15, 2010
Bottle… Clear copper ale with a large, fluffy, off-white head. Excellent retention. The bouquet is reminiscent of a Belgian dubbel or quad – mild chocolate, lots of dried dark fruits (raisins, dates and fig) clove and black bread. Full-bodied with a creamy/slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Bland, modest, minerally bitterness dominates the flavor, but allows notes of medium-dark sherry and fallen dark fruit to peek through. Finishes bland and very lightly acidic.

DocLock (11048) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Bomber from Capone’s. Pours chill hazy ruby deep coppery with clingy 2 finger off-white head. Nose is that house quality nose of acidic caramel malt, mild hops, with ESBish tannins and mild fruit. Tastes caramel malty, not sweet, with some ESB tannic notes, stays pretty bitter, with some hops, not very complex. Finishes dry and gets drier as it warms. Comesacross like a poor man’s Fuller’s vintage ale. I got very little grape juice in this, and methinks it might have been a good idea to add it later along in the fermentation process.

alexsdad06 (10818) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2012
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.

marcus (10682) - 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.

phaleslu (10673) - 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.

DuffMan (10667) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 28, 2011
Bomber, shared with jeff. Medium amber, slightly hazy, robust rocky off white head. Aroma is toasty malt and Welch’s grape jelly. Very interesting aroma. I’m not sure if it is the power of suggestion, but the grape aroma was undeniable for me. On the palate, the grapejuice element is more subdued, lending a fruity sweetness to the dominant toasty toffee malt. Hints of cocoa, piecrust, and tea. Very interesting brew. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and found it very interesting (and dangerously easy) to drink.
