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.

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

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.

Cimbasso (86) - - AUG 29, 2014
Deep golden hue and extremely short-lived white head. Purchased in a 33cl bottle from Spirited Wines. Aroma of malts, vanilla, dates and cloves. Taste is quite sweet and with hints of fresh bread. Also notes of cloves, toffee and dried fruits. Plenty of alcohol at 6.8% but this beer is reasonably well-balanced. Not particularly complex for an abbey beer but quite pleasant. The after taste is a little strange and rather metallic.

zacgillbanks (2302) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle from Cora supermarket, Saint Malo, Brittany, France. Golden coloured with a sweet fruit and alcoholic toffee flavour, hints of cheese?! followed by a warming almond and caramel finish. Not a very good beer at all.

nimbleprop (4873) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 23, 2014
12oz goblet at a bar in Bordeaux. Pours a hazy, burnt orange with some thin, eggshell head. Nose has some candy sugar sweetness, some clove, dates, nougat, lightly floral too. Flavor is candy sweet, raisins, clove, some herbs, some dried apple slices, some dried citrus peel. Fairly heavy finish.

freretoc (686) - Besançon, FRANCE - JUL 23, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl, couleur blonde, mousse et effervescence moyenne, en bouche cette bière à un goût de malt et de pain assez prononcé et un côté sucré du panaché, fin de bouche horrible sur le savon, un désastre !

Erzengel (2608) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2014
Schöne Bernsteinfarbe und süßlich-würziger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist süßlich-würzig, ganz leicht herb. Zum Hauptteil hin wird das Bier milder, leicht würzig-süßlich, aber schon fast zu süßlich. Die 6,8% machen sich höchstens in der typischen Süße bemerkbar, sonst aber nicht. Der Nachgeschmack ist süßlich-herb in angenehm mild.
→ Ein interesantes Bier, aber für seine 6,8% etwas aromenarm. Schade! 9+12+8+9

allmyvinyl (3351) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 20, 2014
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear pale gold, thin white head. Aromas are grainy, light white sugar, bread. Taste is light sweet, not much else, maybe more graininess. Forgettable.

Digzis (77) - Nancy, FRANCE - JUN 12, 2014
Blonde avec une couleur claire, mousse assez rare. Assez sucrée (note de caramel ou de sucre roux), nombreuses notes de fruit (raisin, pommes). Pas terrible dans l’ensemble, trop sucrée à mon goût. Mais à sa décharge, je l’ai sans doute goûtée pas suffisamment fraîche.
