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, best by 2010, Best part about this beer was that it was free from LFranko, its a champagne like beer which is meant to feature the yeast and effervescent but this just feels like old school BSA, nothing standout here.

ALIBALI (346) - Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - MAY 17, 2016
Definitiv in vielerlei Hinsicht ein aussergewöhnliches Trinkerlebnis der anmutigen Art. Nicht nur die wunderschöne Flasche erinnert an Sekt. Das Mundgefühl und die prickelnd spritzige Geschmacksexplosion lassen ebenfalls stark an Perlwein denken. Belgisch/Atemberaubend/Honigsüß sind nur einige Beschreibungen die einen in den Sinn kommen. Der Alkohol sehr hintergründig und das Bier in seiner Gesamtheit extrem ausgewogen. Wahnsinn!!!! Vor der Bierothek in Bamberg verköstigt. Toddys Gabe. 20 Euronen das große Fläschen.

aleksander9 (1226) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 16, 2016
Golden with white head. Stale pilsner, Belgian yeast and spicy alcohol. Sweet, caramel, cloing and floral finish. Overall: Regular beer in fancy clothing. The emperor is naked.

Psytron (1768) - Turku, FINLAND - JAN 31, 2016
Smell of yeast, alcohol. Amber colour, high white head. Aroma of honey, yeast, banana, overripe berries, alcohol. Very sweet, light texture. Wild but soft carbon. Too yeasty, too strong, even too sweet.

bartlebier (3249) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JAN 15, 2016
75cl shmancy bottle courtesy of Mister_Li shared @Bierhandlung, 2014 batch bb09/2015. - - Soggy yellow Weizenbock pour, Weizenbrick nose of dusty banana pudding, vanilla butterscotch and starches, more Weizen and heavy grains in flavour: heavy almond puree, starchy semolina pudding, banana, bread dough. - No real yeast levity, distinct speciality malt or hop character and frankly devoid of most redeeming character apart from not betraying its ABV, the one Belgian trait these brewmasters have nailed. Fail to see the purpose of this collab and this recipe.

markextrae (3330) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2016
bottle, shared at a bar, poured a light brown more copper colour with a tanned head. nose is very sweet, burned caramel, caramel malts, oxidized fruits, yeast, citrus, and alcohol notes. taste is strong alcohol mess, and a big amount of sweet malts. what a mess. can’t belive this came out of the great weihenstephan brewery. also way to overpriced for the quality you get. bad

damzz (442) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 28, 2015
2010 Vintage: Pours a semi-opaque bronze with a thick white head that leaves lots of lacing. Nose is slightly citrus. Palate is medium body. Taste is citrus, dry with no mal. Although, there was a very slight maltiness upon first taste that disappears on subsequent pourings. This bottle was stored for five years as a champagne, i.e. on its side at cellar temperature. No oxidation, no off flavors. Served in a pilsner glass. This beer has changed since it was released. There is now sediment and a haze. No banana nor maltiness remain making it what it was originally designed to be: "The Champagne of Bottled Beer". See below for first review. Pours a thick white head that slowly dissipates leaving sheet lacing that clings to the glass, a crystal rimless wine glass. The bubbles are champagne-like - tiny bubbles (to the tune of the song) that remain throughout the glass. The color is translucent slightly burnished brass matching the label. A slight swirl opens up the nose revealing malt and citrus. The taste is an attenuated malty sweetness with a hint of banana in a medium body followed by a dry finish. Enjoyed on the Celebration of the Birth of Jesus, the Messiah.

SinH4 (2306) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 26, 2015
BB May 2014. Huge gusher, beautiful copper color with a head that goes down quickly. Aroma is oxidized, booze, candied sugar. Taste is also oxidized with candied sugar and booze, biscuity, high carbonation. Full-bodied and sweet, nothing like a Sekt. Held up well!

Stuu666 (9766) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 30, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours golden amber, nose is citrus, yeasty, taste is quite sweet, juicy citrus, little fizzy.

Klares gold mit durchschnittlicher Schaumkrone. Malzig, reichlich süß, Kekse, fruchtig, spritzig, erinnert mich ein wenig an Sekt.
