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.

C’mon Duvelgangers--you can do much better than this! One of the more insipid Belgian lagers--the only thing distinctive is the label.

leaparsons (8037) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2005
Bottle from "The Offie". Golden with a white bubbly head. Aromas are grain with lemon zest, butter and soap. Flavours are grain and soda water. Some green hopping helps and there is some pepper on the finish. Let down by its watery nature.

MiP (13596) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2004
Bottle. OK nice head, quite stable. Flavour is a little sweet with a little acidic fruitiness.

maeib (8664) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2004
Bottled - Bierodrome, Holborn, London. A blonde pilsner with nothing but coldness in the aroma. Quite mellow but no hops or malt to distinguish itself. There is a bit of a bite but otherwise bland.

DanielBrown (3782) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2004
Bottle at Bierodrome (Holborn, London), with Joeh, Maeib, Duff and Kook. Fairly tasty lager, with perhaps more oomph than Maes or Jupiler?? Smooth and crisp mouthfeel - metal and paste. Plain, but refreshing.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - NOV 28, 2004
Nothing in aroma apart from some light hoppiness. MCG with white head. Tastes like nothing, refreshing but flavourless. Thin bodied. I must admit it wasnt offensive, but it just lacked flavour.

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2004
From the Bierodrome, Holborn, London. Standard Belgian pilsener style, like Stella Artois. Served cold, this was drinkable with a bit of a hop bite and some prickly carbonation. Not much going for it, but there are worse Belgian pilseners.

Bov (9447) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 27, 2004
clear pale golden colour with a big creamy head, decent herbal aroma, creamy and dusty mouthfeel with a moderate malty body, a bit oily, slightly bitter herbal finish - not bad but boring

lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - NOV 23, 2004
Nice pale blond beer with a small head and a very refreshing nose. It had a small head becouse i poured it in a wide cognac glass. Lively aroma’s of pale malts, fresh green pepper and some refreshing vegetal hops. This beer has a dry caracter but also a smooth mouthfeel. in the taste you can notice some hints of fine pale malts, a faint touch of mint, some lemongrass and a well integrated bitterness of hops. I think, it is best whin served cold. This is a very drinkable and refreshing beer.

jerohen (1992) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2004
Clear golden coloured, big white head. Malty and grainy aroma.Very light bodied, but well balanced flavour. I’m not a big fan of Duvel, but its smaller brother is quite ok. Thanks my Amsterdam friends for bringing me this one.
