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.

Pours deep golden, like honey. Good head, for a little while. No lacing. Almost a bit of Belgian funk in the nose (what kind of yeast did they use?). Big honey, thickness to it in the middle--a bit of mead. Warms over the palate with rich alcohol, almost Scotch notes. Good, big, complex beer--the hoplessness reminds me of drinking a big bottle of a fine Belgian...although for this price, I could get two Belgians! I love the concept and what this does for the industry, and Iíll like to hear more from the critics and see how they develop this line over the years.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2010 Light copper in appearance, thick, quickly dissipating, off white head. Yeasty, vaguely vanilla aroma. Unique taste, mostly yeasty, vague aftertaste of hops. Sour flavor overall. Hides its abv well. It has a novel taste, unusual for its style. Worth trying once.

Bottle, thanks yespr. Clear golden coloured with a huge white head. Sweet aroma of caramel, bread, hops and grass. Sweet flavour of caramel and bread with notes of hops and berries. Sweet and fruity finish.

BMan1113VR (7874) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 14, 2010
2010 bottle (listed as 10.3 not 10.5%). Pours with a clear golden body with a large white and lasting head. Head lasts for the duration. Aroma is chalky, some noble hops, lightly peppery, Downy Air Freshener, straw, and over all kind of sterile smelling. Flavor is kind of odd. Straw, lots of sweetness, caramel, cotton candy, alcohol and notes of light grape juice. Not very distinctive in any way. Very lively carbonation. A bit more syrupy and flabby (sweetness) than I would have hoped. Very nice packaging. Okay product inside.

ElDuderino (183) - Hyde Park, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 13, 2010
Shared by my friend Karel, pours a light amber body with a tall loose off-white head. Nose is mild and sweet, some honey and dusty yeasty notes. Flavors are non-offensive, but non-exciting. Sweet, light malts, very mild yeast, some dry grains and herbal bitters. The one great aspect of this beer is that itís drinkable fresh with all 10+% alcohol and its barely noticeable. The finish ends dry and mild, just as it came. Itís pricey for boring.

Pour is clear and light amber with a big bubbled skin of an off white head...smell is toasty and sweet with caramel, bread, and molasses...taste is sweet...very sweet...bread, malt, cereal, molasses, and TONS of caramel...quick slick finish...very lively and effervescent mouthfeel...this is really sort of boring...

Briney and buttery aroma of swamp, seaweed, and clams. Clear golden, thick white head, decent lacing. Sweet malt with a briney clam character. Finishes a little metallic. Buttery throughout. Whoa! This was not very pleasurable. I admire both brewers, but this collaboration is awful.

The beer pours a clear golden color with a white head. The aroma is very sugary, along with a little bit of butter, wheat and citrus notes. Not sure why, but the aroma reminds me quite a bit of circus peanuts. The flavor is wheat, grain, bubblegum, more circus peanuts, alcohol and some citrus - lemons and oranges. The flavor is very sugary and boozy, so maybe this would benefit from some aging. Medium mouthfeel and a very high, prickly carbonation. The beer is not bad, but for the $20 price tag and all of the hype surrounding it, I was very disappointed. Overall, the beer is a boozy, sweet mess with a lot of different flavors and aromas that donít meld well together. I expected more from two world-class breweries. Glad I got to try it, but at an extremely high price point, I will not try it again.
