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.

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 (2406) - 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 (9877) - 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.

Quack-Duck (7794) - Down South, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2007
75cl bottle, bought in France. Golden yellow, slightly hazy, small head. Rather sweet and malty with hints of caramel. A hoppy bitterness appears in the finish and aftertaste.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2007
Orangey copper hue with a fast dissapating head. Fresh orange and fruit aroma. Fairly weak flavour with malt and yeast with a medium length finish. A reasonable beer.

thewolf (11158) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 8, 2007
Bottle. Pours a deep yellow with a medium, very fizzy head that disappears instantly. Aroma has a touch of smoke, lots of caramel and maltiness. Quite round mouthfeel. Lightly vinious. Sweet taste with a cellarlike smokyness.

Geiserich (3346) - Linz, AUSTRIA - MAR 26, 2007
Light fruity, sourly aroma. Malty flavor with acid (citrus) notes, sparkling, fruity. Dry, astringent finish. Flavor with notes of cellar.

ogivlado (5666) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 15, 2007
Bottled(750ml). -Golden/orange coloured, medium sized white head, perfume honey nose. Aroma is grainy and slight malty with notes of caramel. What a surprise that one of the biggest french breweries that brew beers for supermarkets, bottled a beer in this kind of bottle.
