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.

Pours a clear gold with a large billowing white head. Aroma of white grape, pineapple, and alcohol. Sweet and minerally, with a dry finish.

shared bottle. pours a deep golden with lots of bubbles and a thick 3 finger white head. high levels of diacetyl on the nose (butterscotch) - with thin layers of bread and light fruit. medium body with sweet malts up front, softer citrus notes on the sides with some lingering musty dark fruit. dry, sweet finish with some light grape notes coming forward. the alcohol comes out a bit on the end, but is hardly noticeable throughout. overall - very disappointed in this one - great packaging - not great beer, imo.

Uncorked at midnight on NYE 2010 with Iowaherkeye. Pours clear light golden color with very fizzy head. Aroma of belgian yeast, fruity esters, with some occasional buttery notes. Flavor is very sweet, highly carbonated and slightly alcoholic finish. Overall, an interesting beer, but a little too sweet for my taste.

JStax (3778) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2010
Poured into a snifter. Aroma is much like a pineapple milkshake. Appearance is a hazy blonde with a thick, foamy white head. Taste is sweet pineapple with yeasty notes up front. Clean palate. Smooth for such a high abv.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2011 Bottle. Super carbonated evident in the pour and head. Aroma is sweet malts, notes of yeast. Very different. Palate is overcarbonated, but easy going down. Flavor is sweet. Considering it was brewed following the German purity law, it is damn good.

(bottle) amber with huge eggshell head. Aroma of banana and clove. But flavor is more caramel malt, slighly syrupy. Some banana and clove but not a lot. Not really a Belgian Ale at all - more of an Imperial Weissbier.

Pours gold into a flute. White head recedes to skim surface. Honey and treacle aromas. Dry and sweet with banana flambe and rum soaked over-ripe summer fruits.

This is great! Needs its own style, not strong Bel. ale. For having only the four basic ingredients and nothing added, this has a lot of complexities. Has apple and sour nose. Very thick palete. Almost a Brett like taste, Mild sweet and clean. No noticable alcohol, for a 10%. My new years beer! Hope it is contiuned next year!

750 c&c from the BevMo in Citrus Heights, CA. Pours orange gold with a 4 finger foamy white head. Aroma is mildly spicey and very floral. Med body. Flavor is malty, very lightly sweet and moderately hopped. There’s really a lot of play between complex malt and saaz type hops - my guess. Wtih time it seems to go dryish. The flavor is good, and quite intense compared to a pale lager, but a bit understated for a Belgian. I have had Belgians with such unintense flavor, but usually otherwise. Heat is notably absent. Good, but something of a puzzler. Seems more related to those overheated AB special lagers than a Belgian ale. But as time wears on, and the beer warms a bit, some lightly peppery flavor turns up, and maybe that’s some spice from noble hop. Ah, time to just drink it.
