COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Over 1000 years of brewery experience together with American innovation, two years of development and the four ingredients malt, hops, water, and yeast resulted in a new dimension of the art of brewing and in an innovative, ground-breaking beer: Infinium. The sparkling beer is complex, unique in taste and produced strictly according to the German purity law. This sparkling beer is dry and strong in taste despite the more the 10 percent by volume alcohol and unsettles preconceived opinion about the limits of the German purity law. The strong, deep golden beer will enter the market in noble, corked, 0.75 liter bottles. The joint venture of Weihenstephan and Samuel Adams unites a new way of thinking about the world of the American extreme.

Belle bouteille mais déception à l’intérieur. Beaucoup de bulles et au final pas de grande surprise dans cette bière qui est horriblement chère !

2010 bottle from world beers. Pours a hazy golden color. Scent of alcohol and grapes. Taste is alcohol, sweetness and grapes. Pretty good stuff.

Douberd (2332) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle 750 ml at home, poured into a big tulip glass, ABV 10.5% Bright dark orange colour on the body, crystal clear, with intense activity in it. Almost three fingers of off-white head but I always get that with this glass. Not very thick head, but a good retention nevertheless, leaving minimal lacing around the glass. Aroma of caramel, malts, apricots, toffee. Taste is sweet and malty, with caramel malts, peaches and apricots, white grapes too giving it faint wine qualities,notable alcohol, traces of vanilla, toffee. Thin body, very carbonated, sticky palate. Overall this was better than expected. Surely hyped, but partially it justifies this hype.

Bottle, 2011 vintage purchased off the shelf. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a moderate fizzy tan head, and a lot of carbonation coming up in it. Nose pretty sweet, with some lighter fruit tones coming up front (somewhat similar to a champagne) and some earthy undertones to it. Taste is actually pretty dry, and reminds me a lot of a white wine (grape bits to it). Feel is a little bubbly, with a sour finish on it for me. Not a huge fan of this.

OPIE788 (336) - Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2014
2011 bottle. Pale orange color with a soft white head. Smells sticky sweet with fruit and sugar. Sticky malt and big sweet sugared fruit flavors. I hear a lot of people talking down on this, but it was a solid beer. Glad we have another one.

(bottle - 750 ml - 2011 vintage) Was shocked to see his one still one shelves anywhere. Clear ruby pour with a puffy white head. Sticky sweet candy and light fruits in the aroma Sweet malts and caramel toffee throughout with a sticky sweet finish. Held up nice.

beerfest5 (1147) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 17, 2014
Overhyped, that was the first thing that went through my head when I tried it. A new dimension in the art of brewing my arse. This is a sparkling Belgian Ale that is trying to be more than what it seems. Aroma of Belgian yeast, citrus zest mostly lemon not orange, some bready malts. Finish is nice and palate cleansing. Not worth the price tag.

Gusher. Poured medium amber with a frothy off white head. Aroma of zesty fruit, bready, spicy yeast. Medium body, flavour of sweet candy, sweet wine. Dry, sweet end.

This beer tastes like champagne, that’s really the only note I got at all.
