What the heck is a Wendelinus? Well, it is French for starters. Therein ends my knowledge of the beers beginnings. It is an abbey ale, but in a Belgian “dark-ale” style. However, for being a strong, dark, ale it is of the three… an ale. Nothing overpowering in this beer. It weighs in at a modest 6.8% ABV which is enough for the classification on paper, but in all reality, it is hardly a heavy hitting beer. The flavor is one that is for the most part unremarkable, nothing jumps out and grabs you. Unfortunately not all of our beers on this journey can be winners. This is one that falls certainly in the bottom half of beers that I will be bringing you this year.
