COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dès le 9ème siècle, les moines de l’Abbaye de Wissembourg, inspirés par on ne sait quelle voix, ont choisi de brasser leur bière sur le site actuel de la brasserie Meteor. Wendelinus perpétue aujourd’hui la tradition des bière de dégustation initiée par Saint Wendelin, patron des agriculteurs toujours fêté à Hochfelden. Wendelinus est une bière blonde (6.8% Alc Vol) au reflets ambrés. Elle est caractérisée par une rondeur et un moelleux très puissant. Elle se déguste idéalement entre 8 et 9°c.

this was my test # 1000 on biertest-online.de (november 17th 2006). smell of yeast and malt with berries and toffee. sweet start with some toffe and berries. a bit like liqueur. later more and more hops but the malty ground stays. finishes with aromas of cherry, vanilla and cinnamon. starts thin ends complex and excellent.

MoritzF (8389) - Bochum, GERMANY - FEB 17, 2009
(75cl bottle, with thanks to Quack-Duck) Almost clear, golden colour with a medium-sized foamy white head. Moderately sweet and slightly acidic/ascorbic malty nose with a grainy touch and shy notes of citrus. Light-sweet flavour, medium bodied with a crispy carbonation. Pale malty, slightly grainy and faint fruity taste with an ascorbic note and a touch of biscuits; moderately sweet malt-accented and subtle fruity finish. Drinkable but also pretty one-dimensional (17.II.09).

wyzzywyz22 (1942) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2008
Bottle, Chez Michel, Strasbourg. Dark amber with a dissipating white head. Sweet aroma and flavour, with some yeast and malt in there mixed with trace fruit and spice. Straightforward stuff, decent enough to wash down a big bowl of moules and frites.

omhper (19192) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2008 Bottled. Clear deep golden, no head. Leathery aroma. Sweet with clean mouthfeel and medium body. Notes of butterscotch and vanilla. Low bitterness. Simple, but mild and drinkable.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2008
Bottled. Thanks to Björn once again. Pours out in a clear pale amber with a low quickly disappearing white foam. A bit sharp and sourish (fishy) yeasty aroma with nutty undertones. Medium-bodied with quite an unrefined and sharp flavour of raw yeast, straw, metal and fish-food. Metal and almonds in the alcoholic finish.

armando629 (2404) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 20, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2008 Golden color, light head wich diminshes quickly. The aroma is yeastly, some spice. In the taste is yeast, malt, a little orange. A little thin texture, not so exciting.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2011 Bottle from Intermarche, Nr Boulogne, France. Orange gold with a white head. Aroma is sweet with a yeasty background. Taste is gentle, sweet malt and yeast, with rather too much carbonation. No bitterness. It’s drinkable, but not particularly exciting. 18.12.11, bottle. Slightly bready aroma. Still too fizzy. A trace of gin spices. More bitterness than I noted before. Rating:6,4,6,4,12:3.2

Lubiere (9734) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2007
A dirty hazy flaky golden amber ale with a thick receeding white head. A doughy malt aroma with light alcohol. In mouth, more on the crisp side, with lightly sweet malt, fruity esters, apple, and alcohol in finish. Boring French imitation. Bought at Sherbrooke Liquor, Edmonton, Mar. 2007.

CEZ (397) - Milano, ITALY - AUG 10, 2007
Light orange body, thin short-lived white head. Tastes little more than a lager with notes of caramel and a vague bittersweet finish. Weak aroma and body. I may be a bit drastic but this is an insult to abbey beer: ingredients include artificial colouring E150c and ascorbic acid, which detracts from the overall rating. I should know better than trust anything which comes with a Meteor brand.
