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.

Like a lager with slight Belgium yeast hint. Not a beer of flavour or depth. Rated by BrewTom

Boxereddy (220) - BELGIUM - SEP 15, 2015
Heldergeel bier met middelgrote snel zakkende schuimkop. Licht moutig in de neus met snuifje Duvel gist. Aangenaam en verfrissend bier.

Best Belgian Pils if it’s up to me. Nice aroma, good white bubbly head. Ideal for a hot summer day.

R4N5H (386) - 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 (40) - 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 (3356) - 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.
