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

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, - MAY 11, 2007
Orangey copper hue with a fast dissapating head. Fresh orange and fruit aroma. Fairly weak flavour with malt and yeast with a medium length finish. A reasonable beer.

Marduk (6903) - Reval, ESTONIA - FEB 20, 2017
330ml bottle. Dark golden color. Medium size, white head, stays. Sweet, alcohol, acetone, caramel, honey in aroma. Sweet as hell, malty, alcohol and honey in taste. Tastes like boozebomb from 2L PET bottle. Harsh to drink. Nope.

330ml bottle (eDrinks, Tallinn)
Sweet malty aroma. Sweet malty taste, woof what a kick of alcohol! Sweetish honey tinge, and a Belgian twist to the taste. Full sweet palate, but rough.

visionthing (5015) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 29, 2017
33cl bottle from eDrinks, Haabersti. Pours clear dark golden with a fairly fast dissipating, white head.Fairly grainy and slightly fruity aroma with notes of honey, caramel and Belgian yeast. Sweet and malty with some fruity and slightly spicy notes and a rather light bitterness. Alcohol gets quite noticeable as it warms up. Drinkable, but highly forgettable.

suurjuust (3251) - ESTONIA - DEC 23, 2016
330ml bottle. Clear golden beer, medium white head. Nose is malty, grains, starch, sweetness and esters. Flavor is malts and grains with a watery edge, starch. Caramel notes in the finish, floral hops, sweetness. Graininess and wateriness work against this one, but it’s not a complete failure.

The_Osprey (7405) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2016
August 2016 - Bottle shared on level 42, picked up in the shop below One Canada Square. As ’Meteor Wendelinus Blonde’. Dark yellow, lightly sparkling, foamy white head. Aroma is buttery, spicy, some citrus, lager. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is sweet, thin grainy malts, buttery with a spicy finish. Not a great beer, but interesting to try a biere de garde. In saying that, it’s quite a lot like a tripel. (2.8)

Level 42 Bottleshare. Thanks to Danny. Clear gold beer, a few lonely white bubbles. Palate is light, dry and has modest fine carbonation. Sweet pale malts, sweet esters and sweet floralness. Tracen of citric hop. Sweet then! But inoffensive.

60minuteman (1505) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2016
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

teorn88 (7478) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2016
Bottle shared at the August Level 42 tasting. Thanks to Daniel. It pours a clean yellow color with a minimal white head. Aroma is grainy and starchy with straw and starch. Taste is slightly sweet fruity and perfumy with some stone fruit, grains, straw and starch. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, not exciting

Leighton (19854) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2016
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.
