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.

Bottle ... Vero Beach “GET YOUR RUDOLPH ON” Throwdown… Clear golden ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The nose is spicy and fruity with a suggestion of nickel and a rumor of chicken stock. Full-bodied and oily with modest carbonation. The flavor is sweet and fruity with only a hint of diacetyl. Bittersweet, mildly buttery finish. Bottle courtesy of Blazer06!

Thanks to gunhaver, yes, gunhaver for the share. Pours clear gold with a white head. Nose is honey, yeast, plastic, spice, sweetness, and a slight yeasty quality. Flavor is clean and sweet with a honey quality showing up big, slight spice, booze, and a hint of hops. Medium bodied and champagne-like. Glad I had it, now what’s next?

tgncc (3073) - Bellmore, New York, USA - DEC 20, 2010
The aroma is spicy, musty, champagne sweetness, grass. The appearance is a stunningly clear gold/orange color, white head. Looks just like chmpagne. The flavor is sweet, champagne grapes, other fruit, cookie dough, slightly spicy. Damn that was sweet! The finish is spicy, peppery, slight alcohol burn, sugary residue. Wierd. The body is medium to medium/thick, oily mouthfeel. Offbeat and different, but I wouldn’t go back to it (and NOT at $20 a bottle either!)

hayduke (4435) - Eureka, California, USA - DEC 19, 2010
From the attractive corked and caged bottle this poured a clear golden cold with a huge white head and light lacing. Nose of ripe fruit and spices. Medium body and champaign like mouthfeel. Flavor is citrus, fruit, and some caramel sweetness, and the finish is very dry and fruity, Hides alcohol well. Very interesting brew.

Hbuck72 (177) - Chickasha, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Aroma has notes of apple, grass/hay, and citrus. Crisp on the palate with notes of hops and citrus. A little too carbonate as it covers up the more subtle notes. I appreciate what they have tried to do here, but not my favorite.

jimmack34 (640) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Paid $20 dollars for this and was slightly disappointed. The immediate smell was that of champaign, which was surprising. However it changed to more of a sugary malt smell once poured into a glass. The color is a pale tan and almost coppery. A thick, crisp bubbly head made for slow enjoyment. The first drink was more of a sticky sweet bock than a glass of bubbly. All the flavors were more like a bock than anything. Sticky sweet with brown sugar, honey, cane sugar, and raisin. The aftertaste is sweet but dry. Not a bad beer, but not worth the price.

Strykzone (6174) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 19, 2010
What a good beer! A beautiful French made bottle, too. Medium golden brown with a fizzy head. An aroma that was very fruity which reminded me of a saison but with wheat notes. Flavor was quite different. It is bold alcohol, caramel, malt, fruit, and yeast. A rich, almost creamy, feel. Very well done.
