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

Vestlake (146) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Bottle pours a golden color with a finger of head. Aroma is malt, yeast, and a little spice. Taste is malty and spicy, pretty good taste. I would rate it higher but it lacks a kick that I look for in strong ale’s.

Beer of the month selection. Pour this into the disposal. Carbonated black licorice. Nasty stuff. I did not like this. Nauseating. Strong sweet upfront and then black licorice. Gross. Nasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not sure why this beer seems to be so unpopular with other reviewers. Pours a beautiful, incredibly clear orange color with a finger of foam that is retained for a while. Pleasant aroma of burnt sugar and honey. Doesn't taste as good a or looks or smells, but still good. A little syrupy, with caramel, spice and a hint of alcohol on the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scipio (743) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Pours a mostly clear, darker golden with a minimal off white head. The aroma is kind of sweet and contains mainly yeast and caramel, along with softer impressions of apple and orange. The taste is pretty boring. I only find bread and caramel with a very faint tart. There is minimal aftertaste. Medium in body with with a thick texture. The mouthful feels flat. I wouldn’t recommend this.

On tap in resto in Cancale, Bretagne. Golden body with slight head. Nose is malty, yeasty. Taste malty, sweet, spicy. A tad dull. Slight bitter in the finish. Okay.

cheap (4382) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2013
J’e suis fice unique. Smell is quite crisp, hints of lod lager in dare. Taste is a little rude from the start, not well mannered. From a small 250 mL bottle. Yes, session is a little difficult for a lager lover. Tastes like an old bottle, but perhaps this is the personality of the brew. Was expecting something a little more refined. Finish is difficult. Not sure if there was any significant co2 in this brew.

Disappointing. Oragen syrup aroma. Maltiness, sweet. Weak flavour. Not a great beverage.
