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.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 6, 2009
Tasted 06/01/2009. 330ml from Galbraith’s. Is it a Belgian Blond? Is it a dortmunder Export? Or is it just all "honeybread" and "grain husk"? It’s a little oxidised either way. Floral yeast and herbal/grassy hop on the nose. Sweet and stewed in the mouth. The Belgian version of Moa Original, though less bitter and too old to figure out if it was once decent...

alobar (2873) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2008
Minimal head. Pale yellow color with a white rim head. Yeast and hops aroma. Tastes of hops with a slightly bitter finish. A bit grainy.

TrefwoordPunk (818) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2008
Can 33 cl. ours a pale golden with a medium but fading white head and a skunky, hoppy aroma. The taste is creamy, grainy with some hoppy bitterness in the end. Not bad, but not good too

Lubiere (10460) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2008
A golden lager with an extra thick white head. A rather classy chalky pils, with grainy malt aroma, cereals and grassy notes. In moouth, a clean crisp pils, with light restrained hops and a medium bodied. A classy pils. Bottle from Delhaize, tasted Nov. 2006.

Bontus (642) - Flanders, BELGIUM - SEP 22, 2008
UPDATED: APR 4, 2009 Bottle 33.cl. Bel Pils’ brother. Very crisp smooth and refreshing. Clean dry aftertaste. Slightly better hopped than most commercial pilsners. Some sweetness in it though.

SeanMacGC (332) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 7, 2008
Bottle. Unremarkable in just about every respect; pours clean golden with adequate head.Caramel and hops on the nose, and slightly more yeasty on the palate. Not the worst.

iammarc (385) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - AUG 13, 2008
Bottle, Irish Bar, Brussels. Pale yellow pissy colour. Mental fizziness, a tad sweet but overall a ridiculously bland lager.

Borresteijn (4927) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2008
Bottle. A very bland lager, which only sticks out because of the high carbonation. Some cardboard in the flavour as well. Not too good. Expected more from Moortgat.
