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.

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!

Light head with no lacing. Taste has grass, malt, hay, citrus (grapefruit?), honey, bread, and what I can only guess is sweet cloves. A lot is going on here. The finish is light, sweet and absent hops.

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

Light fruity, sourly aroma. Malty flavor with acid (citrus) notes, sparkling, fruity. Dry, astringent finish. Flavor with notes of cellar.
