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

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

suurjuust (3153) - 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 (7126) - 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 (1430) - 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

Taste comprises cereals, sugar puffs, soggy biscuits, caramel. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light grassy bitterness in the close. Not great.
