COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Bottle 330ml at the TGV towards Paris. Great sweet and "yeasty" beer. Aromas of hazelnut, caramel, and hints of butter. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a thin head.

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.

This is also quite tasty. Some bubblyness, a bit of maltiness; also has some spiciness that the dremmwels had. Thanks ’rents for bringing these back from France!

Color is a hazy orange-blonde with an aroma of fruity liquor and pool water but just fresh sterilized water and not in any bad connotation. Flowers, fruit, orange, spice and wheat. I feel like I have the whole French country side crop in my glass. All the subtle qualities of a rich dark Belgian beer without all the fuss

Bottle shared in London - many thanks to Danny. Pours totally clear yellow with a frothy, white head. The nose holds white grape, pale grains, white bread. Medium sweet flavour with sugary pale bread, more white grape, faint cereal. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet and bready on the finish, with hints of toffee, tangerine, more white grape, melon, white bread. Enjoyable BdG.
