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.

Fris bier, met fantastisch uiterlijk. Niet zwaar, wat het een geliefkoosd bier maakt tijdens een namiddag op café!

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.

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.

Gangstergafje (337) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2015
The beer doesn’t have a special appearance. It is pilsner: rough white foam, pale golden yellow color, bubbles arising too the top. The aroma is hoppy. It has a nice fruity aroma, there is also some malt. The taste is just like the Asian pilsners. More hoppy and malty than normal pilsner, but not very special.

33cl bottle at The Handmade Burger Co in Silverburn. Very pale and watery. Huge head that disappears.

It’s refreshing, but hardly distinguishable from ordinary pale lager (Grolsch, Jupiler etc.)
