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.

ABT_S54 (98) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2014
33cl bottle poured into a Delirium Tremens glass. Pours a light straw colour with a huge white head. Highly carbonated and too gassy. Aroma is akin to a cheap lager (i.e. Carling, Stella) and the taste being little better. Not my style at all. After one sip this was passed onto someone else. Close on the worst beer I have tried.

Deu (668) - Nantes, FRANCE - APR 20, 2014
Pours a clear yellow. Has a light aroma of malt. Taste is light malty and grainy. Very mild bitterness afterwards. Nothing special about this beer at all. Little taste and nothing worth remembering. Won’t be ordering this again.

blackisle (463) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 14, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Clear pale golden color, decent foamy white head, disappears quickly, some lacing; moderate malty, hay, grain, floral hops; mild bittersweet taste; light body, oily to watery texture, soft carbonation; crisp bitter finish, bit metallic

Rob_D_UK (650) - Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Pale yellow colour with a large white head. Malty aroma with a touch of citrus and hops. Light, pretty clean tasting.

WingdSoldier (39) - BELGIUM - APR 5, 2014
Clear pale golden blonde with a light flavour and a grainy, hoppy and fruity aroma.

VincentKabel (129) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2014
A very nice pilsener. A beer that isn’t very outspoken, but not to boring as well. Very drinkable thirst quencher. Doesn’t get boring. Very nice regular pilsener.

freretoc (443) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 2, 2014
L’une des moins pire Pale Lager qu’il m’ait été donné de goûter, mais ça reste bien sur le bise surtout au niveau de l’amertume pas agréable

psilosophy (473) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - MAR 31, 2014
Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur dorée assez pale, mousse correcte de bonne tenue. Ne se distingue aucunement de toute la floppée de pils genre Kronembourg ou 33 export si ce n’est peut être une amertume un peu plus marquée. Trouvée à l’ entrepôt - Courcelles les Lens.

jinroh (268) - ESTONIA - MAR 27, 2014
Pours quite pale golden, even too pale. Has a staying head, nice carbonation. Aroma has some slight honey, reminding me bee-wax. Taste is doing the same (with bee-wax). Thin body, honey malts. This beer is quite refreshing, excellent beer to drink on a warm summer day. Dry bee-wax aftertaste.

Renobob (453) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 25, 2014
Bière peu intéressante. Houblons assez présents mais bière de soif à boire absolument fraîche.
