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.

basewars (169) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Pours a deep reddish yellow with thick, but quickly dissipating, head. Aroma is apple and pear with hints of caramel and some wet cardboard. The palate is a bit sticky in the best sort of way. It’s sweet on the tongue with fruit like a sparking apple cider. Nice and crisp. No alcohol presence anywhere. Very much champagne like. This is a very good beer.

Clear golden, small white head... very very boozy in the nose, not nearly as bubbly as expected, very remeniscent of a strong belgian golden ale... loads of oak/vanilla in the flavor.. i expected more of a bubbly airy clean beer with something very different and new, but this seems like an oak aged tripel.. Still pretty awesome...

I truly enjoyed the experience of having a bottle of Infinium w/ family over the holidays. It felt right to be sipping this beer in a champagne-ready situation. The beer pours like a champagne, sparkling golden color with a very foamy head. It is a very, very dry beer. The taste is a crisp, strong fruitish flavor... definitely different. Definitely hard to believe it was within the Reinheitsgebot rules.

SirADNielsen (8963) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 26, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2011 750 mL bottle at home. Pours a fairly light yellow/orange appearance with a sizable off white head. Spicy and slightly fruity malty lager nose. Pretty fruity (notably pineapple) malty body. Bock-like flavor is more apparent at the back of the mouth and on the finish but there is a lingering pineapple flavor. Very carbonated and very unique brew.

JoeTheYounger (1144) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - DEC 25, 2010
Very clear golden color with thick white head. Opened with a big bang like a bottle of champagne. Aroma is bread and sweet grains with a hint of honey. Taste is hints of white wine and some sweet malts with some definite hop presence. Very dry and carbonated finish.

SudsMcDuff (5804) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - DEC 25, 2010
Received this bottle for Christmas, 2010 .. thanks Ma! ... .

Cork pops out with a massive shot, like a 45 slug!.. Pours out a strong gold, with medium size foam- good sticky lacing .. .

amazing sweet aroma, like honey from the 2010 honey bee playmate..

flavours range from honey, sugar, honey liqueur, golden syrup, pancake and LOTS of fun fresh sweet fruits like cantaloupe and sex berries, wonderful!!.. . .

light bubbles on the touch, but mellows after a while, very smooth with only the faintest touch of the alcohol .. .

A very fine and well made beer, one of my beers of the year, and obviously to good for most of the people who have rated it with a low score.. "waa waa! its tooo expensive!?!?!" .. fuck off with that shit you cheapskates..

This is a great beer!

Colour is almost like any supermarket stock lager. Smell has same thing going on. Did I just buy most expensive lager ever? Head is really unimpressive, and there’s no carbonation. Signs are really bad. Bit sweet and there is some hops. alcohol taste is clear, but perhaps not as obvious as you could expect on basis of percentage number. At least this is easy to drink. As a beer this reminds somewhat trippels, but considering the price this was not very good buy. With more than 20 euros I where expecting something more special.
