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.

This Belgian Blonde taste more like a typical lager rather then a blonde. The aroma is wheaty and sweet and the flavor is typical and bland of lager.

Swaroga (2111) - Gdańsk, POLAND - OCT 29, 2011
UPDATED: APR 23, 2016 33cl bottle. Pours a very light yellow with small snowy but not disappearing head. Nose : Skunky fresh. Green apple with little yeast. Sip : Well carbonated with a watery body. Malts are delicate and give way to the hops which are really fresh and bitter. Little metallic taste. Strong bitter lemon aftertaste. Overall this is one of the best lager in Belgium for me especially that I don’t like lager beers. Extra points for their website and possibility to put your picture on their bottle. Great marketing idea.

Goudkleurig bier, mooie witte schuimkraag. Zoetig moutige geur, licht florale hop. Smaakt naar een net wat droger en hoppiger pilsje.

Bottle in The Volunteer, Baker Street. Pours pale yellow. Nose is sweet and grainy. Taste is very very light and lacking flavour or body. A real flavour free zone. Crisp, carbonated, with some hop bitter but very little malt. Don’t like it.

12HundredBaud (262) - Sausalito, California, USA - SEP 26, 2011
33cl. bottle from a local beer retailer. It pours an almost clear pale golden-yellow liquid with a medium bubbly but quite consitently lasting white head that leaves some good lacing. The aroma is very citrusy at first, then it shows its other hints of straw, grains and floral hops. It tastes likewise, being low-medium in sweetness (quite high for its style, actually), low in bitterness and very slightly sour. In the mouth it feels quite lively (but pleasant), smooth, with an oily texture, a low-medium body and a rather dry finish, with a bitter aftertaste of hops and grains. Presentation is quite nice (the counter label is very original) for a pretty well done pale lager. Very refreshing and nicely flavoured. Good job.
