Infinium finally made its debut tonight for Christmas. Very effervescent but served at the recommended temperature of 41-44 degrees, it was difficult to make out much in terms of a nose. Caramel and cough syrup predominated.
The above plus vanilla are present and readily identifiable as far as flavor notes. There’s a lot happening on the palette, but the champagne-like carbonation really works against identifying them. I like it, but this is the antithesis of a session beer (the bubbles alone ensure this).
But perhaps the defining comment came moments ago from my wife. She’s no craft beer aficionado, but after a sip of mine, asked for a glass of her own. When I asked for her help in identifying flavors, she simply shrugged and said, “I don’t know, but I like it!”
