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.

Rhombic (58) - SPAIN - NOV 18, 2015
Bottle, 33cl. Pours pale yellow under white head, mostly diminishing. Sweetcorn aroma, hay, grainy, nothing too special. For a lager, though, surprisingly plentiful flavours, if however a bit on the sweet side, with a slightly marked sourness in the finish. Cereal-ish, hay but just a little too sweet. Oilier than your average Eurolager, medium body -particularly decent for a lager- and a rather nice longish finish.

tricksta_p (2406) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma of grainy malt, hay, grass, hint of citrus, hint of hops. Flavour is moderate bitter. Body is light to medium. A bit watery and lacking any outspoken characteristics. It is, however, a drinkable and crisp Lager.

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