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.

Lubiere (13064) - 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.

Scopey (13006) - 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.

Christian (12995) - 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

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.

Bottle, bought @ lbutikken, Cph.
Clear golden with a small, frothy, white head. Aroma has light wet dog, maltiness, wheat, vinious, oranges. Medium carbonation, creamy and kinda light mouthfeel. Flavour is light nutty, wheat, light vinious, quite sweet, mild green apple. A bit grainy as well. Somewhat boring, but still rather interesting.
