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

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

Aroma: caramel, toffee, bread malts. Appearance: clear, light amber, small head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: malty sweets continue, intense caramel. Overall: quite quaffable, not terribly sophisticated not refined, but nice anyway. Pint at Colbert, Chelsea.

gunnar (6333) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 25, 2015
Bottle at Sandholt Reykjavik. Pours clear golden with a small creamy white head. Aroma is sweet fruity, some spices as well. Taste is moderate sweet fruity with a spicy note, high carbonated, light bitter finish. Boring.

Slaktmasken (70) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2015
250ml flaska från beställningssortimentet på systembolaget. Fäldigt fin gyllene färg, lite mörkare än vad jag trodde att den skulle vara. Trevlig smak med toner av aprikos, men det är nog inget som jag kommer beställa igen.

Bottle from Spirited Wines. Appearance - amber with a thin head which disappears quickly. Nose - earthy, orangey and some red fruits. Taste - toffee, oranges, earthy again. Palate - medium bodied with a sweet and crunchy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - interesting beer.

kappldav123 (5437) - GERMANY - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle looks simple but really good. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Spicy-sharp aroma. Starts strong-malty, some alcoholic notes, modest fruity like arpricot. Finish with some sourish and dry notes. Finish still intense malty and spicy. Still warming-alcoholic. Okay.

JorgeLee (1400) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2014
Bottle from the off license on Westbourne Grove. I was quite excited to see some new beers in there, what an idiot! Quite a deep amber colour, lacking head. Malty, sweet, caramel, really lacking any hop at all to balance, neither bitterness nor flavour to be found. When would a beer like this ever be appropriate?

scarletfire65 (1087) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2014 Bottle at The Rock Tapas Bar. Aroma is very sweet malt with brown sugar and vanilla notes. Slightly oxidized notes as well, and as it warms some dates and figs. Tastes very malty and sweet. No hop presence at all. Tastes like that Spanish drink Malta. Ready to age, but not sure if that would be a good thing. One is enough, thanks.
