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.

tdtm82 (1404) - Essex, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2011
Botle; 33cl, many thanks, Beermerchants Hardly any lacing; golden colour, aroma is grass, hey, straw, lemon, some pastuerised notes, taste is metalilicy-coppery, very faint hops, lemon, citrus and bubblegum. For a mass-market product this is not too bad, just really dull. Nothing like Duvel at all.

Martinus (4285) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2011
Bottled. Poors a clear pale golden body with a good, white head. Good lacing. Bitter aroma, some sweet malts come through. Light tough of fruit. Light, bit hoppy, rather sweet flavour. Malts. Decent, very enjoyable on a warm spring day, but nothing utterly exciting.

77ships (6195) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 17, 2011
bottle@bar: not bad for a pale lager, one of the better ones of its kind, minor pils malt, some hop bitterness that doesn’t last long, no strong flavours but nothing objectionable or unbalanced either, very drinkable, very clean & refreshing, solid

Bierkrug (2130) - - MAR 10, 2011
330 ml bottle in Germany. I am trying to clean out some of my beer cellar before I head off to Africa again. Pours a clear yellow color with a short white head. Smells like a sweeter version of a Bud. Taste is a sweet malt and is just like an NA. Palate is almost not even there other than a lingering bad taste. Another real bad beer from a good brewery and an even better beer country. It sucks.

tkrjukoff (4229) - SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2011
Pours clear dark golden with an off white head leving nice lace. Aroma is slightly caramel, hoppy, hay and grainy. Fruity crisp mouthfeel. Tart hoppy, acidy and slightly fruity flavor. Thin body. Tart watery palate. Finishes dry tart.

It’s okay... nothing special. Has some loyal fans and I’m sure they like it.

Snuffyarroder (1) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2011 does not count
Almost completely flavourless but for metallic finish. ’Capricious’ is not the word I would have used.

Warning! Early amateur rating! A crisp dry lager. No bitterness. Noteably citrus finish. Alright.

Yves (2614) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - DEC 23, 2010
Clear blond coloured beer with medium white head and lots of carbonation. Herby aroma with some touches of hop. Full palate slightly sparkling. Finish is herby ending soft bitter with dry notes. Average to good pilsener.

Countbeer (5613) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2010
Bottle: Big airy white head on top of a clear yellow colored beer. Smell malts, hops, spices and a hint of fruit. Taste is ok, kind of refreshing. Some hops and malts, fruit, spices, bitter, grass, bit watery, bit dry. Lot of carbo and normal pilsner mouthfeel.
