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.

Skinnyviking (7062) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2008
Bottle. Low but lasting and creamy white head. Clear yellow body. Weak fruity aroma. Heavily carbonated and slightly bitter but otherwise quite ordinary and watery flavor. Short aftertaste.

Hamirubi (40) - BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2008
This light blond beer has a misleading disguise in a robuust 330ml bottle. Yet, it is not that flat. A nice taste, but not that rich flavored.

Finn (4167) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 26, 2008
Bottle 0,33l. Pale golden colored. An OK white creamy head. Sweet malty aroma. Watery taste. Some sweet bitter hints int the aftertaste. Disappointing.

Ungstrup (29281) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2008
Bottled. A golden beer with a huge white head. The aroma is sweet malty with a light fruity touch. The flavor is sweet with primary notes of straw, but also hints of fruit. Plain - down the middle of the road beer.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2008
Grass notes, hints of an old man’s vest. Feel a bit let down, average. Over carbonated, slighty dry. Making me burp. Not terrible though. Ok. Night warry

Beer4000 (4469) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 6, 2008
330ml bottle. Pale golden body with a huge, foamy head. Aggressive carbonation. Aroma is pretty weak, some malt on the sweet side, hint of castor sugar and hay. Flavor is like a sweet pilsner with some bitterness and also this sense of castor sugar and hay. Not impressive at all.

downender (6275) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2007
330ml bottle. Not bad for a lager. Some sweet malt in the aroma and flavour, with some grassy hops also in evidence. Ok.

goozen (2941) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2007
Bottle 0,33ltr: The stronger in taste not alcohol brother of Bel-Pils. Golden colour and a great bitternesh.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2007
Golden colour with a white head. Malty, fruity and light sweet aroma with a vague grassy note. Malty, light sweet flavor with a hoppy floral finish.

Gr0ve (2134) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2007
330 ml bottle. Very pale golden and crystal clear. Tall coarse white fluffy head. Lots of big bubbles rising to the surface. Crisp saaz aroma. Floral and malty aroma. Lightly sweet malt flavours balanced by a citrusy hop flavour. High carbonation level. Finish is slightly sweet with a pez-like character. Texture is somewhat watery. Decent, but could stand out more.
