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.

fidelis83 (2296) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUN 16, 2013
2011 bottle. Lightly hazy orange pour with a 3 finger, creamy, off white head that has great retention and leaves some nice layers of semi-lacing that arent quite lacing as they slowly meander their way down the inside of the glass as it sits. Aroma is toffee, caramel, loads of figgy dark fruit, some sharp ginger and clove spice, bananas foster, and light spicy hops. Flavor is surprisingly a little tart, vinous and a little sour up front leading to the toffee and caramel maltiness coming through, nice dark fruit, again fig heavy, but raisin seems pretty noticeable as well, green wood, pine shoots, toast, hay, and a little woody vanilla gets stronger as it warms. Medium body with a chewy entry, strong, sharp and blanketing carbonation (much like champagne, but the bubble seems larger), leading to a fairly dry, sharp finish. The carbonation drops off fairly quickly to a pretty pleasant moderate strength, blanketing and somewhat sharp level after a few minutes, but right out of the bottle it is a little oppressive. Pretty good stuff, definitely different, like somebody blended an English Barleywine, Flanders Red, and champagne and aged it in white wine barrels, or something, its strange.

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.

ALIBALI (1433) - 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.

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.
