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.

Courtesy of THE gunhaver. It pours deep dark yet pale gold with off white head. The meek aroma puts out a bit of esteriness and yeasty spices. The taste is spicy yeast, spicy hops, apples and some grainy malts. Pretty nice one but a poor value.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 23, 2010
Bottle from Vas Foremost. Pours a very effervescent blonde with a billowy head. Very clear. Nose is a bit peppery and sweet in the nose. Really does come across as a Heller Doppelbock. On taste, bready and sweet with some dry fruity notes as well. Lively carbonation that pulls it from the doppelbock category. An interesting beer, but not my cup of tea.

Bottle 28$ at a bar, thanks EDA for picking me up! Pours a copper toned body with a white head. Thin with mild retention. Sweet apple cores, quick drying with a spruce and noble hop tones. Buttery pretty sweet with a mild warming. Not so good.

hopscotch (10901) - Vero Beach, 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!

Thanks to gunhaver, yes, gunhaver for the share. Pours clear gold with a white head. Nose is honey, yeast, plastic, spice, sweetness, and a slight yeasty quality. Flavor is clean and sweet with a honey quality showing up big, slight spice, booze, and a hint of hops. Medium bodied and champagne-like. Glad I had it, now whats next?
