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.

sebletitje (8957) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 11, 2009
draft. pours golden, thick lasting white head. aroma of pale malts, some hops. Taste, pilsener like hops, with a light bitter finish and light malty finish. Made by Duvel, and it definitely has some of the Duvel background.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2009
Bottle, Rehills, Newcastle. Very pale yellow beer, clean tasting, with a fresh aroma. Reminds me of those European holidaylagers that you really quite enjoy in the Mediterranean heat! Has the beginnings of a sweetness that I associate with the stronger Belgian ales, but nothing further.

jercraigs (9537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2009
2009-05-22. Crisp pale yellow body foamy white head. (3+) Hints of skunk to the aroma at first, aroma is muted, light grassy hops and grainy pale malts. Flavour is likewise mild, light grainy malts are a bit rough, light bitterness fights to bring more than a sparse floral/grassy touch of the hops with it. Touches of alcohol feel out of place. A year plus before the best before dates one would hope it would be in better shape, but alas the green bottle has taken a bite out of it. Average palate. Okay. Bottle from Wine Centre, Kilkenny

Bullit (4381) - Burgos, SPAIN - MAY 27, 2009
Bottle, Morissons. Pale blond colour, white head. Aroma is a bit malty. Flavour has lager malts, a bit metallic, with some floral hops. Not too bad.

FatPhil (13066) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 18, 2009
330ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam)
Pleasant, but capricious, aroma for a pale lager - sweet and capriciously hoppy. Lively and capricious carbonation, crisp capricious palate, light and capriciously fruity retronasals. Papery hops, capricious too, and a thin malty body which is even more capricious. Finish is some bitingly capricious hops, and not much else. All in all, possibly the most capricious tasting beer I’ve ever tasted - those marketeers weren’t bullshitting after all!

BoBoChamp (5755) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAR 29, 2009
33cl, from De Hopduvel Gent, not complex brew, yet refreshing, balanced, clear, rocky head, nothing special

Parket (581) - Bruges, BELGIUM - MAR 28, 2009
Bottle,served in a ’duvel glass’, golden colour, nice head, smell of hops, grainy, bitter. As told before: for a Belgian lager very good.

pivnizub (9979) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2009
Bottle: Pale yellow-greenish coloured with a small white layer; dry bready-grassy nose, light bodied, dry bitter flavour and finish. A very monotonous brew, a perfect copy of a dull german Premium Pilsener............

Bragesnak (5394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2009
Au Brasseurs, Brussels, Belgium Bottled, 050309. Yellow with small head. Aroma of malt and spices. Flavor is malty with lemon and a metallic note

Bloekie (210) - BELGIUM - MAR 7, 2009
When looking at the lagers coming from Belgium, this is a topbeer. It’s very enjoyable on a hot summernight, since it’s surprisingly refreshing. Has (taste-wise) nothing to do with Duvel, by the way.
