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.

Had this as a celebratory indulgence. At that time it made the mood of the evening. Something to keep in mind for toasts with friends.

Awesome collaboration between the world’s oldest brewery and Sam. Definite citrus flavor evident here, and it very much does make you think "beer champagne" (screw miller high life, seriously). Just an example of how extreme you can get while still following the Reinheitsgebot.

Opened the bottle on New Years 2010. This is truly a unique beer. Very bubbly, but certainly in the beer category. Slightly fruity. Easy to drink, alcohol was extremely light, hardly noticed. I was very impressed and cannot wait for New Years 2011, I’ll definitely be opening another bottle of Infinium.

Infinium was pleasantly surprising. I was expecting a basic champagne like ale with high carbonation, but instead was treated to a complex and velvety smooth beer. Infinium pours a golden honey color, with substantial notes of citrusy fruit such as bananas and apricots complimented by Vienna malt, peppery spices, and floral hops with a hint of honey in the backbone. The alcohol content of more than 10% is well camouflaged, and Infinium has the feel of a pilsener mixed with a Flanders red ale. http://www.billysbeerblog.com/2010/12/infi

I thought this was a really excellent beer. The head was incredibly smooth with a thin crispiness; perhaps the best head ever. Flavor was light, like a leffe, but really nice as well. Other than the price this beer is fantastic!

First off, can’t believe we found this. Thank the lord for Brusin’ Ales in Asheville, NC. Its like Easter in your mouth. Pours a beautiful amber color with a thick dark cream colored head. Aroma is different than expected, a bit similar to some altbiers I’ve tried, notes of a slight funk with dried fruits. Taste is very good and surprisingly bright. Notes begin with a citrus sweetness, also dried fruits, apricot seems to be the one coming to mind. More notes of a very small amount of bitter, more on the aftertaste. Very champagne like in texture from the carbonation, lively and pleasing mouthfeel. Great new style of beer, very glad to of tried it.

Simply stunning, you can treasure the two years of development in this. Can’t even really quantify the greatness of this. Clean, crisp, bubbly, sweet and flavorful...like to see sam adams ever top this again.

Bottle. Exceptional. Aromas of caramel, bread, bubblegum, and a touch of sweatiness. Taste is sweet, with a hint of sourness, light bitterness, and long length. Palate is velvety, with high carbonation, and full body. Amber, with a frothy head.

Finally, a drink that matches the quality of the bottling. A fine golden pour with plenty of bubbles and a 1 inch golden head. The aroma is subtle but fresh. The taste is smooth with a surprising tart finish. It may not be for everyone, but it I personally loved it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy, pale orange colour. Very inviting with a very intense nose of cirtus, apricot, floral hops. mostly diminishing large off white head, similar to champagne. med-high intensity, with a full body. Long aftertaste with a creamy round texture. Sweet, roasted, malty, hoppy, flavors, with a well balanced, rich, complex quality. Greatly Appreciated
