COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Another idea from the abbey Brewed in the tradition of the monks of Wissembourg, who had their beer made on the current site of the brewery, Wendelinus is the result of a centuries-old know-how. Beneath its amber colour and creamy head is an abbey beer with a range of flavours that mature on the palate with every mouthful. Strong, with a pleasant touch of bitterness, this is a beer to be savoured for its persistent mellowness and caramelized fruity flavours. Take your time with it! Une autre idée de l’abbaye Derrière sa robe aux reflets ambrés et sa mousse onctueuse se cache une bière d’abbaye aux parfums multiples qui murissent en bouche à chaque gorgée. Puissante avec une agréable pointe d’amertume, cette bière de dégustation sait aussi surprendre grâce à son moelleux persistant en bouche et ses notes caramélisées et fruitées

zacgillbanks (2885) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle from Cora supermarket, Saint Malo, Brittany, France. Golden coloured with a sweet fruit and alcoholic toffee flavour, hints of cheese?! followed by a warming almond and caramel finish. Not a very good beer at all.

Clear amber color with a fine foam. Actually a bit strong and bitter. Slightly fruity aroma.

nimbleprop (5469) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 23, 2014
12oz goblet at a bar in Bordeaux. Pours a hazy, burnt orange with some thin, eggshell head. Nose has some candy sugar sweetness, some clove, dates, nougat, lightly floral too. Flavor is candy sweet, raisins, clove, some herbs, some dried apple slices, some dried citrus peel. Fairly heavy finish.

freretoc (1003) - Besançon, FRANCE - JUL 23, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl, couleur blonde, mousse et effervescence moyenne, en bouche cette bière à un goût de malt et de pain assez prononcé et un côté sucré du panaché, fin de bouche horrible sur le savon, un désastre !

Erzengel (4893) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2014
Schöne Bernsteinfarbe und süßlich-würziger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist süßlich-würzig, ganz leicht herb. Zum Hauptteil hin wird das Bier milder, leicht würzig-süßlich, aber schon fast zu süßlich. Die 6,8% machen sich höchstens in der typischen Süße bemerkbar, sonst aber nicht. Der Nachgeschmack ist süßlich-herb in angenehm mild.
→ Ein interesantes Bier, aber für seine 6,8% etwas aromenarm. Schade! 9+12+8+9

allmyvinyl (5372) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 20, 2014
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear pale gold, thin white head. Aromas are grainy, light white sugar, bread. Taste is light sweet, not much else, maybe more graininess. Forgettable.

Digzis (93) - Nancy, FRANCE - JUN 12, 2014
Blonde avec une couleur claire, mousse assez rare. Assez sucrée (note de caramel ou de sucre roux), nombreuses notes de fruit (raisin, pommes). Pas terrible dans l’ensemble, trop sucrée à mon goût. Mais à sa décharge, je l’ai sans doute goûtée pas suffisamment fraîche.

BlackHaddock (4510) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2014
25cl bottle: part of a six pack bought at a French supermarket in Calais. Poured into a Chimay chalice on 23 Feb 14. Looks lager/pilsner like: clear, deep golden hue to the clean body, the head a thin wisp from the start and just a collar after 10 seconds. The aroma is semi-sweet grainy: the taste very similar with just about enough flavour to hide the alcohol. It lacks depth and character but it isn’t a bad beer, just a little one dimensional and not really my thing even though I prefer malty and sweet beers. Scored objectively.

33 cl bottle. Aroma: vanilla, brown sugar, sweetish. Appearance: dark yellow, white head that dissipates. Taste: sweet. Palate: relatively smooth, sweet aftertaste. Overall: alright - too sweet for me though.

Calisky (1397) - ALSACE, FRANCE - NOV 26, 2013
Couleur orange trouble, belle mousse. Gout de fruits legerement caramel et assez doux. Pas de fin de bouche. Biere de garde simple mais pas trop mal.
