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.

beerbill (3615) - Laurel, New York, USA - JAN 3, 2011
750 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazed orange gold with a large foamy white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left ample lace. Pleasant floral aroma that also has some sweet malt and mild spice. The flavor is malt with some very light sweetness, mild fruit and again just a bit of spice. Dries out towards the finish with some moderate hops bitterness as well. Effervescent and a bit fizzy on the palate. Medium bodied. Enjoyable.

Bottle. Pours bubbly golden with a big white head. Okay it looks like champagne. Smell is diacetyl. Flavor is buttery/butterscotch, yikes, more diacetyl. This beer has irredeemable brewing flaws and probably should not be sold (esp for $18 a bottle!)

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Thanks for sharing, bro! Pours a crisp gold color with a large pillowy white head. Aroma is almost Hawaiian Punch, lemon citrus, and caramel malts. Taste is much like a Tripel - slightly heavy and cloying and overly sweet. Lemon citrus notes and light caramel malts. A bit too sweet and sugary for my liking. Would have preferred it to be brighter.

Didnt have any flutes as was recommended, so poured into a normal wine glass. Color and appearance of apple cider. Thick white head that fades quickly. Aroma is fruity with notes of banana, apple, and grapes. Taste is similar with complex fruit notes and a dry bitter finish. Overall much more of a champagne/wine palate and flavoring. Definitely seems to meet what the brewers set out to do - break down the taste constraints most people would associate with the German beer purity rules. Not quite my style, but definitely an interesting and different way to celebrate and a conversation piece.

Pours a golden color with a small fizzy head with tons of little bubbles. Nose is spicy, fruity, and lots of honey! Flavor has a bready note, with more spicy and honey, there are also some mild caramel notes, and a peppery note as Infinium warms. The finish is bitter sweet, buttery, and dry. The first time I had Infinium, I wasnt sure what to make of it! Now that this is my second time, I find it perfectly balanced and very unique. I just dont think I could afford to put it in a regular rotation!

Rich amber color; Medium body; Aroma of yeast, malt, ripe fruit, & spice; Flavor of sweet malt, yeast, fruit (notably grapes), clove, caramel/syrup, and light hops; Finish is dry; Highly carbonated - champagne like; Fairly well balanced; The alcohol is well hidden; Overall, different - but decent; Does not live up to the hype though.

750 ml bottle. I poured this guy into my champagne flute on New Years Eve. Pours a warm golden orange in color with a pure white head. The nose is a bit yeasty, masking some of the fruity malt character in the flavor. Tiny bubbles make for a lively mouthfeel, leading to a smooth satisfying finish. I bought two bottles at $20 each. I am going to lay one down for a few years.

allfreej (556) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Aroma: Vinous, fruity, clean malt aroma. Bready. Slightly floral delicate hop nose. Appearance: Bright copper, bubbly pour with a dense, pillowy white head. Taste: Biscuity malt, slightly fruity, nice hop flavor. good level of hop bitterness to the finish which was refreshing and dry. Very champagne-like. Palate: Bubbly, medium full mouthfeel. Overall: Very tasty. A nice balance between malt and hops. The alcohol content was well-hidden--no heat or solventy notes. I enjoyed it, though I dont know if Id add it to my cellar collection.
