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.

maupie (927) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - NOV 13, 2009
After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity not wall adhesive white foam collar which was fine and evenly of structure. The beer also contained much carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a clear yellow color and a citrusacid taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a malty touch. This beer smells musty.

33cl Bottle. Pale yellow appearance with foamy white head. Light nutty, malty aroma. Fresh malty flavor with citruses and moderate spicy hops at the end. The flavor is quite flat, but the body isn’t thin at all, almost oily.

Fagner (23) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - AUG 2, 2009
Bottles in São Paulo - A nice and refreshing pale lager beer. Light golden appearance, with a clear and nice white head. Fruity aroma with some tips of malt. The malt dominates the flavor but you can fell some fruity tips also. Hoppy ending. Delicious!!

imdownthepub (11197) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2009
Bottled, 330ml at Cafe Belge, Canterbury. Pale gold with white head. Dull pilsner type, little life, grainy and malty, drinkable but really not exciting, however the only rate left in Cafe Belge for me.

PilsnerPeter (3029) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUL 6, 2009
Bottle: At a Dutch style restaurant/bar in Curacao. Golden pour with a brief white head- perfect clarity. Dry aroma with some apparent skunked Euro hops and mild pale bready notes. Fizzy body. Fairly dry- crisp dry pale malt base with some peppery and minerally character. Very skunked and a touch of saltiness on the back. Too skunked- typical macro European lager.
