Samuel Adams/Weihenstephan Infinium

This is a champagne-like beer from a collaboration between the Boston Beer Company (Samuel Adams) and the German brewer Weihenstephan of the Bavaria region (the world's oldest brewery).  The beer complies with the 1516 German brewing purity law, the Reinheitsgebot, and uses only malt, hops, water and yeast.  In this case, it uses a champagne yeast.

This beer is strong at 10.3% ABV.  It pours orange-golden in color with champagne-like bubbles and foam.  The aroma is fruity, assorted melons, a touch of floral honey sweetness.  The taste is also fruity, sweet, yet with a fruit tartness.  The finish is quite dry.  This beer is unique, interesting and tastes good.
