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. Pours gold, with a white. It does resemble a sparking wine. Aroma is fruit, honey, malt, and yeast. Flavor is sweet malt, fruit, yeast, honey, hops, and alcohol. Ends slightly dry. Good, but too expensive.

750mL corked and caged, $20 at Amity Wine Hamden. Clear medium gold with a two finger frothy off-white head, retained for about two minutes. Relatively sweet nose with lots of fruity melon (honeydew) and ripe peach notes, some light toasted malts, honey and alcohol following. What yeast do they use here? Seems pretty Belgian-y to me, but Weihenstephan is German, so I dunno. Flavor follows suit, and about the only thing other than all the sweetness is some drying alcohol. Semi-dry peppery finish with low bitterness. Moderate prickly carbonation with a medium-full body. I wish it wasn’t so sweet, and more akin to Deus and/or Lust. Oh well. it also doesn’t appear to be bottle conditioned, so that stinksI

Poured a dark golden color. Head dissipated fast. Aroma was candy and fruit with slight malts. Taste was lite to med sweetness. Palate was med bodied, slick, and fizzy. I emphasize the fizzy. Pretty complex. Reminds me of a belgium style a little with the sweetness. Wish it was a little more creamy or soft velvety than fizzy. Interesting..

Pours light gold with a bubbly character very near champagne. Scent features caramel maltiness with citrus overtones. I keep getting the thought of carmel apples. The blend of caramel malts with a slight sour note is what gives me the impression. The end is very dry with a slight bitterness aided by the high carbonation. Very interesting. If they were going for a cross between a sparkling wine and a strong beer, then they’ve been successful. Bring it out to celebrate New Years Cheers!

Ungstrup (30476) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2010
bottle, 10.5%, brewed in Germany @Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan. A golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of alcohol and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, minerals, and yeast, leading to a dry alcoholic finish. Clean - but what style is this? Huge thanks yespr for sharing.

Poured with a thick, frothy head. Nose of very mild hops. The taste was, well, disappointing. Not sure exactly what I might have wanted, but it did leave me wanting. High, high marks for the very fine bubbles that gave a creamy, appealing mouthfeel.

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 I’ll like to hear more from the critics and see how they develop this line over the years.
