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.

jmikolich (1477) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Bottle, best by 2010, Best part about this beer was that it was free from LFranko, its a champagne like beer which is meant to feature the yeast and effervescent but this just feels like old school BSA, nothing standout here.

S_Side_Smitty (754) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - AUG 14, 2016
2008 vintage. Pours orange with a small white head and some yeast floaties. Aroma is super ripe black grapes & a champagne like quality. Taste is dry with super ripe, verging on noble rot, concord grapes with a little pear and a distinct champagne-like bite for the finish.

weihenweizen (3442) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUL 26, 2016
Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle poured into a glass. Slightly hazy with small-white head. Aroma is fruity, medium body, medium/low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is fruity, some dark fruit, and tart.

OminouSC2 (544) - Mora, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2016
Pale golden color. Malt aroma, bread, fruits. Malt base during the taste, sweet fruits, yeast. Fizzy carbonation, almost like champagne. Interesting stuff.

ALIBALI (1308) - Kiel, GERMANY - MAY 17, 2016
Definitiv in vielerlei Hinsicht ein aussergewhnliches Trinkerlebnis der anmutigen Art. Nicht nur die wunderschne Flasche erinnert an Sekt. Das Mundgefhl und die prickelnd spritzige Geschmacksexplosion lassen ebenfalls stark an Perlwein denken. Belgisch/Atemberaubend/Honigs sind nur einige Beschreibungen die einen in den Sinn kommen. Der Alkohol sehr hintergrndig und das Bier in seiner Gesamtheit extrem ausgewogen. Wahnsinn!!!! Vor der Bierothek in Bamberg verkstigt. Toddys Gabe. 20 Euronen das groe Flschen.

aleksander9 (1489) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 16, 2016
Golden with white head. Stale pilsner, Belgian yeast and spicy alcohol. Sweet, caramel, cloing and floral finish. Overall: Regular beer in fancy clothing. The emperor is naked.

Golden color with very good white foam. Aroma: malt, wine, hay, flowers, little champagne, spirits. Taste: sweet, white wine, malt, sparkling, warming, good.

Psytron (2084) - Turku, FINLAND - JAN 31, 2016
Smell of yeast, alcohol. Amber colour, high white head. Aroma of honey, yeast, banana, overripe berries, alcohol. Very sweet, light texture. Wild but soft carbon. Too yeasty, too strong, even too sweet.

bartlebier (3728) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JAN 15, 2016
75cl shmancy bottle courtesy of Mister_Li shared @Bierhandlung, 2014 batch bb09/2015. - - Soggy yellow Weizenbock pour, Weizenbrick nose of dusty banana pudding, vanilla butterscotch and starches, more Weizen and heavy grains in flavour: heavy almond puree, starchy semolina pudding, banana, bread dough. - No real yeast levity, distinct speciality malt or hop character and frankly devoid of most redeeming character apart from not betraying its ABV, the one Belgian trait these brewmasters have nailed. Fail to see the purpose of this collab and this recipe.

markextrae (4191) - Alingss, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - JAN 10, 2016
bottle, shared at a bar, poured a light brown more copper colour with a tanned head. nose is very sweet, burned caramel, caramel malts, oxidized fruits, yeast, citrus, and alcohol notes. taste is strong alcohol mess, and a big amount of sweet malts. what a mess. cant belive this came out of the great weihenstephan brewery. also way to overpriced for the quality you get. bad
