Up in OOB and finally getting the chance to drink this signed bottle of Infinium. Great drink after the Beach to Beacon race, chilling out on Lake Sebago, dinner at Ken's, and then relaxing in OOB.
Appearance: The beer poured a nice white fluffy head that quickly reduced to nothing like champagne would do in a glass. The beer is an amber yellow color too. Very haxy looking and can't really see and carbonation in the beer.
Smell: Bready/biscuity taste, champagne yeast, and some citrus notes too.
Taste: a little tart, bready, some sweet malts,and dry towards the end. Beer is also slightly funky too. Still trying to figure out some of these other tastes.
Mouthfeel: Carbonated like champagne, but very full bodied. Not really too exciting on the palate.
Overall: I was very happy to drink this bottle, but not sure i would spend the money on this again. I think I would drink a nice bottle of beer or champagne, but not a champagne beer.

Had this aged bottle well past the enjoy by date - so this may not be entirely fair. Aged 16 months, not recommended 6. Beautiful hazy caramelly, orange color. Nose was Belgian-y, like a quad, and sweet with some alchohol. The champagne bubbles - still enough to overflow the bottle upon popping the cork - strip flavors off the tongue and cut the sweetness. This is good as the flavors are brown sugar, rock candy and malts sweet, again similar to a quad. Overall - glad we tried it, no off flavors from over-aging. It was an experience, not a go-to.
