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.

DSG (13780) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 23, 2011
Bottle at a tasting. Thanks Shachar. Clear golden with a big white head. Aroma of fruits and some yeast. Flavor has concentrated sweetness upfront, with fruits (apples and more), a bit of honey and a dry, slightly sourish, yeasty finish with some alcohol. Medium-bodied with lots of carbonation.

Scopey (13742) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2011
Bottle at the Euston tap, thanks to the Cad. It pours golden orange, with a massive off-white head. The nose is orange, sweet tangerine, straw, alcohol and light spice. The taste us full of sweet orange fruits: tangerine, orange, apricot and mango, as well as hay, caramel, toffee and light spice, with a bitter-sweet finish. Medium body, very high, champagne-like carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. A classy brew, but a bit too sweet for me.

djd07 (13483) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy orange with a small off white head leaving spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is a fruity hop and vanilla. Medium mouthfeel with a nice balance of sweet hops and sweet malt finish. A very good Belgian strong ale.

Lubiere (13404) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2011
A superb golden ale with a thick receding white head. In aroma, sweet malt with light Brett, spices, pungent, wild, muskey champagne. In mouth, a gueuze-like ale with light candy sugar, herbaceous notes, coriander, curacao, a superb beer. Rich and smooth. Tasted on April 24 2011. LCBO.

Christian (13280) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2011
Golden with a small white head. Aroma of malt, raw grain, straw and apple peel. Dry and slightly sour flvour with lots of apple peel character (champagne yeast? I get this flavour a lot from beers fermented on champagne yeast). Some alcohol peeking through

Drake (13259) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 7, 2010
Wow... second to rate this! Sampled from a bottle from Whole Foods Market, Charlottesville, VA. Pours a crystal clear amber color with very large bubbles. A thin bubbly head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel, toasted malts, grapes, citrus and leafy hops. The taste is citrus, mango, toasted malts, white grape and a spicy finish. Medium bodied with light, airy carbonation. Decent beer.

Bov (12477) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 12, 2011
from Bierhtte.ch - clear bright golden colour with a little white foam left; very estery aroma, notes of yeast and perfume; a solid carbonation and malt backbone, very sweet with some tart acidity to balance it partially, no bitterness and a long estery, lightly acidic fruity finish with lot of residual sugars

Dogbrick (12466) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Pours a hazy dark orange color with a medium fizzy white head that evaporates steadily to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, yeast and wheat. Medium body with champagne characteristics and notes of mildly spiced yeast, citrus and wheat. The finish is sweet and fruity with a short citrus aftertaste. Decent overall.
