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.

Lubiere (9888) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2011
A superb golden ale with a thick receding white head. In aroma, sweet malt with light Brett, spices, pungent, wild, muskey champagne. In mouth, a gueuze-like ale with light candy sugar, herbaceous notes, coriander, curacao, a superb beer. Rich and smooth. Tasted on April 24 2011. LCBO.

Ratman197 (9704) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2011
750 ml corked and caged bottle poured a clear orange amber with a lasting ivory head. Aromas of straw, citrus, light carmel and light pear. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finmsh. Flavors of pear, straw, light camel and light citrus with a crisp dry lingering fruitry finish. Congradulations you just brewed a mediocre Belgian Strong ale!

Bov (9459) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 12, 2011
from Bierhütte.ch - clear bright golden colour with a little white foam left; very estery aroma, notes of yeast and perfume; a solid carbonation and malt backbone, very sweet with some tart acidity to balance it partially, no bitterness and a long estery, lightly acidic fruity finish with lot of residual sugars

FatPhil (9287) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 21, 2012
750ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki) - at the "100 Euros of Shit Beer tasting".
Pours a pale orangy gold, with a brief white head. Fruity aroma, definitely saying wheats. Almost sour in places though. Some alcohol in the retronasals, but on the whole the alcohol’s quite well restrained. Some sourness in the taste too, in particular when it goes up the back of the nose. Smooth, and a little sweet, but not too sicky. There’s a wheaty taste too, quite a bit earlier on, but less simple later on. Sweetens as it warm, becomes more like a pastry with its wheaty flouriness, and its hints of apple. A very simple taste, no real depth. I do like how well it covers the 10.5%, but it’s not a great beer, and certainly not worth 20e (shop price, not pub price)

hopscotch (9113) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - DEC 22, 2010
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!

Yellow/gold pour. Fluffy head. Light fruit, yeast, hops aroma. Flavor has some butter, fruits, yeast, mild hops. Move along.

adnielsen (9025) - 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.

Sammy (8566) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 8, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2013 Many highs and lows in this one, but glad I tried it despite the sprice. Cloudy yellow with a little head. Sour and sweet, the sourness always present, like apple juice. A tangy finish. Grows on me as I drink it. Aroma of armpit funk and Selsun dandruff shampoo. Well malted.Peeno’s bottle. Had more than 2 years later fro The Rhino cellar. Nice sour finish, works now.

Drake (8442) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2010
Wow... second to rate this! Sampled from a bottle from Whole Foods Market, Charlottesville, VA. Pours a crystal clear amber color with very large bubbles. A thin bubbly head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel, toasted malts, grapes, citrus and leafy hops. The taste is citrus, mango, toasted malts, white grape and a spicy finish. Medium bodied with light, airy carbonation. Decent beer.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2011
Pale golden-orange pour with a fast-fading white head. The aroma is lightly dusty and a little bit earthy. Softly fruity and a little bit musty. A touch of minerality and some noble citrus character. Orange peel and a bit of sweetness. The bright/carbonation lightens the body. Nice noble hop bitterness on the back of the palate. Fairly zesty. A bit crackery and lightly fruity with a distinct Belgian spice component. The bitterness is quite pronounced. Soft and zesty. Its still pretty sweet and boozy but it kind of works.
