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

JorgeLee (2051) - 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 (1443) - 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.

Cimbasso (886) - - 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 (5070) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2015 Bottles from E.Leclerc supermarket, Marmoutier, France and Cora supermarket, Saint Malo, Brittany, France. Bright golden coloured pouring with a disappearing thin white head. It has a sweet boozy fruity flavour with toffee and malty notes followed by more warmth and strawberry on the finish.

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 (1935) - 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 (8512) - 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
