Great find, very interesting article.

I found this information on the Weihenstephan web page:

Quote:
Working in tandem for almost two years, the brewers from Samuel Adams and Weihenstephan are perfecting an innovative beer style that explores new brewing techniques within the boundaries of beer law. Their yet-to-be-named crisp, pale brew is slated to debut in the United States and Germany next spring in cork-finished bottles. This effervescent, Champagne-like beer will weigh in at more than 10 percent alcohol by volume, yet remain very dry and crisp, shattering the preconceived notions of what can be done following the Reinheitsgebot Law.
The Weihenstephan/Samuel Adams beer marries new thinking from the world of American “extreme beer” with tradition and respect for the Reinheitsgebot, a German beer purity law that dates back to 1516 and states that all beer must be brewed using only the four ingredients: malt, hops, water, and yeast. By tapping 1000 years of brewing knowledge and coupling it with American innovation, the brewers at Samuel Adams and Weihenstephan will brew a complex, higher alcohol beer of distinction with only the four classic ingredients. This new beer will be ready to share with beer aficionados throughout the world in the spring of 2010.

This is pretty exciting, I'm looking forward to the release.

Just a complete guess, I am betting that since they are doing the cork thing and using wine/champagne comparisons, that they may use the same price range and go $10 - $20 a bottle for a 750ml.

Thats a solid bet, I can't wait for this Sam Adams rarely disappoints (Except the blackberry, nay on the blackberry).

This is very cool, this is the sort of experimentation that's really interesting. I'm betting this beer will need to be aged awhile, a cellaring beer.

I was watching something on the history channel about beer that had a Sam Adams segment where they were talking about some new beer they were making that was like 18%. It talked about how they had conditioned special yeast for years to get it to stay alive in that much alcohol. Sam Adams does some pretty cool stuff

The beer they're talking about is Utopias. That's a pretty old episode of "Modern Marvels" that they show about 2 to 3 times a year.

Since the new brew is going to be at least based on the Rheinheitsgebot, I imagine it will be something like a Belgian Blond, but the alcohol will come from specially-bred yeast that survive in higher alcohol environments. Just a guess.

Sounds very similar to a slightly higher alcohol Tripel

FWIW, most any ale yeast can survive up to 10%.
