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.

Unde (968) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Golden yellow looks, really nice head on top and magnificent lacing. Beautiful beer. Aroma has cream, some malts and Belgian yeast. Taste ha lots of malts, some strange milk or cream, yeast and some sweet fruits. Full taste and medium carbonation. A bit strange beer but I liked the flavours.

Punkero (369) - FINLAND - APR 25, 2015
Drinking this in the afternoon sun, which gives a gorgeous look. Sophisticated aroma. Taste is mature. Like a fine lady. Gentle, but strong body. Oh, lovely. Id serve this instead of champagne. Biscuits.

DwarfeD (3160) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2015
75cl bottle at home. Clear golden with a full white soapy head. Medium to full body with quite some carbonation. Lots of malty sweetness with some bitter tones. Malts, caramel, fruits, biscuit and spices. This was somehow more an imperial pilsner then a Belgian Strong Ale. Altough it was tasty Ive expected more from this.

eduardovl (1377) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 20, 2015
750ml corked bottle served in a chalice glass. A: Pours a clear golden yellow color forming a big bubbled and fizzy white head. Medium retention and some soapy lacings left in the glass. S: Sweet nose. Strong notes of sweet pale malts and honey. Fruity notes of pear and peach. Caramel and yest. Flowery and a bit citruses hops. A bit boozy and metallic. Bready yeast notes. T: Follows the nose. Sweet upfront. Strong notes of sweet pale malts, caramel and honey. Fruity notes of pear and peach. Orange zest. Light sweet finish. Light hops bitterness. A bit boozy mouth too. Quite bready for an ale. M: Heavy creamy and molasses body. Strong carbonation. Honey and bread in the aftertaste. O: Medium drinkability. A good beer. Nothing compared with the "regular" Weihenstephaners.

For this highly priced beer specialty, I expected a better product. I ve tasted Belgian beers which only cost a fraction of this so- called specialty. A hint of mould, combined with a muddy appearance. Thumbs down on this!

Erzengel (8231) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2015
Vielen Dank an Martin. Das Bier ist slich-scharf, leicht slich, etwas klebrig und recht herb-scharf. Unrund, nicht zu sffig. Irgendwie enttuschend. Vor allem fr den Preis...

StueyD (1579) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2014
A bright orange-brown coloured beer with a frothy white head. A strong winey aroma along with meaty, caramel, bready, plus a zesty fruitiness. Medium-dry mouthfeel. The taste follows on from the aroma, mouth tingling winey and fruity zestiness is then mellowed by a bready, caramel flavour, that is bolstered by a background meatiness. The finish is long and flavourful.

cereal and some hop aroma; golden bright color; taste not impressive; lots of carbonation (1/3 of the bottle explode out). I was expecting more.

VDuquerroux (1445) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle, 750mL. Home. A golden orange beer with many bubbles. Big off-white head with a great retention. Aroma of caramel, sugary fruit, roast, spices, light biscuit. Medium warming sweet, light lasting bitter then warming again. Full body, oily texture, good carbonation, sweet warming finish and light herbal bitter. Overall, beautiful bottle and beer, average aroma, too sweet, nearly nauseating. Disappointed. Too expensive for this.
