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.

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.

MoritzF (9036) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - FEB 23, 2009
(33cl bottle) Clear, yellow colour with a big and stable foamy white head. Sweet and slightly sour perfumed malty nose, also a bit waxy with a touch of grassy hops. Light-bitter flavour with a tinge of acidity, light to medium bodied with a crispy, slightly fizzy carbonation. Papery and perfumed malt-character with grassy hops, that get slightly metallic towards the papery malty finish (23.II.09).

MrH (8) - Kalken, BELGIUM - FEB 22, 2009 does not count
The most people here review this beer expecting another Belgian ’great one’. But that’s not the goal of the Vedett. Believe me the Vedett is one of the best lagers around when it comes to drinking on a good night out. Not to heavy, more distinguished than Jupiler. You can drink lots of it without getting to drunk. And come on, compared to shitweiser or Heineken, this one is way better.

fata2683 (2175) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 9, 2009
bottle, pours light golden color with a white head. Aromas of hops and dry hay fill the nose. Overly carbonated, almost champagne like, lots of adjuct flavor and light hop bitterness. Not my favorite.

CH-303 (1818) - Fribourg, SWITZERLAND - JAN 25, 2009
Appearance: Light golden. Nice amount of white head. Aroma: Honey, flowers and some hops. Taste: Fresh. Hops and floral. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Info: 330ml bottle, 25/1-2009

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 (3286) - 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 (864) - 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 (11932) - 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.
