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.

jaghana (3968) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - JUL 25, 2010
bottle 75cl. A clear gold-amber beer with almost no head. Smell is on sweet caramel and orange. Aroma is sweet, lager yeast like and medium malty, some agrumes notes at the finish, bit lemony too. Hop character is low, notes of spices like cardamom, not bad but very common.

larsga (6218) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 21, 2010
Biggish white head quickly shrinks. Deep yellow body. Sugary floral mealy aroma with fruity golden notes. Dry-sweet malty syrupy strawy taste with fruity alcoholic notes. Light body. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish mealy alcohol and toffee aftertaste with floral notes. Nice, drinkable, not terribly remarkable. (0.75l bottle, Auchan, Illkirch, Strasbourg.)

drpimento (2237) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 28, 2010
This is from the notes I took on a napkin on the TGV train 6196 Avignon - Paris: Poured a nice off white creamy head that lasts and some lace. Color was a clear medium amber. Aroma was malty, yeasty, apricot, honey, dark ripe fruit, spicey, and a bit floral. Flavor was like aroma. Good bitter/sweet balance. Good body, champagne fizz. A slow session beer.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2009
Bottle@Home. Sweet malts and apple aroma. Dark yellow colour, beige head, fine lace. Pretty sweet, bitter, light malty, apple. Alcoholic, soft and sticky. Clean and more like a Heller Bock than a Belgian Ale but not really bad.

Cirrhosis (1209) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 3, 2009
The body was a honey brown color and just slightly cloudy, a fairly thick quarter inch of tan head was produced but had vanished before I had a chance to drink. Very mild smelling beer aroma was difficult to pick up, but I could detect a faint floral lemon sent and just a touch of yeast but like I said this aroma was way too weak. Dam surprisingly strong alcohol flavor for such a low percentage, lemony tasting malts and a fairly good yeast presence made for a some what enjoyable flavor. For a Belgian Ale every thing seemed slightly off, looked the wrong color and no cap, smell was way to mild, and the taste has way to much alcohol, but this still wasn’t a bad beer to drink it’s just a bad Belgian ale

VertBaconStrips (2083) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 26, 2009
This beer starts of good and ends poorly - all in a matter of about 15 minuites. Poured out nicely, but came up a little short on the head - and that died just before my enjoyment died. First sip was quite yummy with a creamy feel, but seemed just a little too thick - couldnt place the aroma (sorry - someone else will have to, cause I ain’t purchacing another bottle), but it was quite fresh. The golden apperance was a bit cloudy and you could see stuff floating around. Half way through the glass, everything changed - for the worse. A bitterness showed up accompanied with a pile of alcohol...odd ending for a promising beer. The label is kinda cheap looking and so was the beer.

Bouteille (Merci, Stephane !) Golden, bigger firm off-white head; bisquity and slightly woody nose; light to moderate sweet flavour with a light bitter touch, light to medium bodied; sweet-bitter, slightly hoppy finish. Simple, but not unpleasant............

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 (8521) - 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 (1961) - 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.
