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.

33 cL bottle. Pours clear and pale yellow with a huge and dense white head. Grainy aroma, seems dry. Flavour is dry and grainy. Ends dry and slight fruity. Nice though.

Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2007
Bottle. Large egg-white head that mostly lasted. Clear sparkling and pale yellow color. Spare lacework. Aroma was very dusty grainy like. With notes of hay, hint of cardboard, toffee and grass. Light bodied with a dry texture and an average carbonation. Light balanced bitter and sweet flavor. Dry and bitter finish.

faroeviking (10293) - FAROE ISLANDS - NOV 15, 2007
Bottle. "Vedett Extra Blond". Pours a clear bit pale yellow colour with a nice white head. Grainy, hoppy bit sweet malty aroma. The flavour is sweetish and malty with some straw and hops.

thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2007
Bottle. Pours a pale yellow with a really pretty frothy white head. Aroma has pilsner maltiness and light hay. Acceptable mouthfeel. Flavour is initially a touch underwhelming with only some hay-like malts. But the aftertaste is nice and rather long with a good dose of citric hops.

KnutAlbert (6012) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2007
Bottled, Oslo Beer Festival. A fairly standard lager, on the sweet side, but there are some hops, too. Rather boring, don’t cross the road for this one.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2007
Bottle. Nose is sweet malts. Big head on a pale bodied beer. Flavor is grassy and sweet. Thin. Mostly unimpressive but not bad.

heavy (2120) - Split, CROATIA - SEP 18, 2007
0.33 l bottle. Pours very pale yellow body with big head. Fine aroma of some citrus hops. Empty flavor, yes, well balanced, but watery and very boring. This follows with almost no finish. Ordinary, averagely poor pale lager.

OleR (4786) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2007
330 ml bottle (5.2 % abv). Mostly lasting dense snowy white head. Nice lacework. Brilliant pale yellow/golden color. Limited, but crisp and dry corn/grain aroma. Scents of dusty and grassy hops. Not flavorfull at all, but like the aroma , the crisp and dry taste makes it quite quaffable. Light body. Watery texture. Short dry finish.
