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.

damzz (481) - 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 (4052) - Garching b. Mnchen, 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!

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

Russo (2012) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - OCT 11, 2015
Golden color with a huge and fluffy with a slightly off-white head. Aroma is fruity with alcohol notes. Flavor is also very alcoholic, some notes of yeast and malt. High carbonation and light to medium body with a dry alcoholic finish. I was expecting more form this beer.

malty disaster on train tracks tons of bready malt. Wow. Not balanced and not good. Amazing that top two quality breweries would produce this.

jinroh (1363) - ESTONIA - AUG 22, 2015
Pours light brown, almost transparent, bit of white foam. Aroma is sweetly sticky, some medicinal character to it. Taste is sweet as well, strength does come though with some warm sensation from alcohol. Overall, feels a bit too sweet, body could be more firm. Interesting beer to try though!

In Finnish: Jaettu pullo Kaislassa. Kultainen vri, valkoinen pieni kuplainen vaahto, joka j lasin pinnalle kauniiksi Belgialaiseksi pitsiksi. Lhinn trippel tyyli. Shampanjamainen, poreileva, alkoholi ei maistu lainkaan vaikka vahva. Heinnen, maanlheinen, hedelminen.

TET (2835) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2015
A hansom bottle opened with a nice sound, a beer is dark yellow, a head is big and blond. Aroma is fruitful, grainy maltyness, some aromatic flowers, also citrusfruits. Taste has grain and malts, overriped fruits, hint of alcohol. Medium bodied, strong carbonation. The big disappointment from the great brewers.
