COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Vedett, a blond, light, well hopped premium beer with 5.2% alcohol content, is the cult Duvel Moortgat beer today: following its birth in 1945, it quickly acquired fame and recognition within an intimate circle of insiders in the Antwerp-Brussels region. But do not think for a moment that this oldtimer is thinking about retirement, quite the contrary. For the past years, Vedett has been going through a second childhood in a number of trendy cafés located mainly in big cities. The secret of its charm? A retro-look, a capricious taste, Vedett-allure and the "golden touch" of the brewery. These past years, the brewery armed Vedett with an innovative, hip, young and slightly absurd image. A successful strategy, especially with the youth: Right now, you'll find Vedett in Belgian Delhaize supermarkets and most Flemish cities as well as in Brussels. And the follow-up to the story? You can read it at www.vedett.com.

R4N5H (369) - SINGAPORE - AUG 30, 2015
33cl bottle at the Urban Food Festival, Shoreditch, London on 22-Aug-2015. Clear straw colour with a thick white head. Medium to light body and well carbonated. Nose is slightly sweet, malt, grain and hops. Flavour is a little too sweet, but refreshing nonetheless. Lots of grain, malt and lightly hopped. Bittersweet aftertaste, a little sticky even.

chris337 (38) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2015
Light golden with bright white head which thins quickly. Initial taste has strong malty flavors which are boosted by the effervescent carbonation. Very gassy beer, though light & pleasantly refreshing.

Gurthnar (3175) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 18, 2015
Bottle. Aroma skunky lightstruck. That is about all. Clear pale yellow colour. Quickly disappearing head. Taste... well almost tasteless. Light metallic, light skunky, very thin, mild, watery. Easily drinkable but distracting flaws.

Jaiez (1) - Hulshout, BELGIUM - AUG 13, 2015 does not count
Fris bier, met fantastisch uiterlijk. Niet zwaar, wat het een geliefkoosd bier maakt tijdens een namiddag op café!

bierhier (21) - BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2015
beer in more or less pils style, but commercialized in the retro-hype making it a bit more "exclusive". Good marketing for a very average beer.

jice (195) - Grenoble, FRANCE - AUG 10, 2015
Couleur pale, mousse fine et persistante, goût pas terrible. La description (certes, commerciale) est exagérée pour une simple bière blonde : "bière culte de Duvel Moortgat", " excellente réputation auprès un cercle étroit d’initiés" ... what else ? Leur site internet est décalé et drôle, la dégustation de la bière est déprimante. Comment compenser un manque de finesse par l’humour...

0,33 l Dose Sehr helles gelb. Wenig weißer Schaum. Relativ bizzelig. Okay aber insgesamt nichtssagend.
