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.

Marko (4108) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 10, 2007
0.33l bottle as on the picture. Yellow colour, fizzy, but saved by a big fluffy white head that stays there for a long time. Hmmm. Nice and pleasant malty and hoppy nose. Bad, somewhat odd maltiness covered by some nice, light herbal hopiness. Weak corny (?) fruitiness and cardboard and saltiness show up. One dimensional harsh but extremely short hoppy aftertaste. Not bad, but for almost 3 Euros, this should’ve sung and done tricks.

bhensonb (11788) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 29, 2007
Grassy hop aroma. Pale golden color with huge white head that laced. Starts a bit sweet. Odd flavor in the middle, but the hop comes forth to cover that error, if error it was. Verges on Pilsener, but the sweetness won’t permit the appellation.

JK (4747) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 18, 2007
I didn’t expect a pale lager but I guess I should have with the "extra blond" description. Gold color and highly carbonated. Dry. Not bad, almost a pilsner.

Quinten (1049) - zaandam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 17, 2007

Beltramelli (471) - Campinas, BRAZIL - FEB 26, 2007
Sincerely, I did not liked. One is about a Pilsen with a little less of carbonation and a little more than fruit flavor but, in the deep one, just a Pilsen..................................PORTUGUÊS: Sinceramente, não curti. Trata-se de uma Pilsen com um pouco menos de carbonatação e um pouco mais de sabor frutadinho mas, no fundo, uma Pilsen e só.

larsniclas (5822) - Billdal, SWEDEN - FEB 24, 2007
Bottled Pale golden. Short white head. Sweet, artificial maltiness. Some alco-feel. Frisk, lätt citrus. Dry and rather grassy, hoppy finish.

shoestring (291) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - FEB 13, 2007
UPDATED: APR 2, 2013 re-rated at Southerness. Not quite as thin as I had remembered. Actually enjoyed it and gave a wee buzz at the strength. I upped the taste accordingly

yngwie (14531) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 30, 2007
Bottled. A nice, white head tops the clear, yellow-golden body. There is grain, hay and some notes of fruit in the aroma and flavor. Thin and dusty mouthfeel. and a fruity finish. Moortgat should know better. (070104)

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 20, 2007
Bottle, a very clear and very pale straw colour with a large pillowy head. A strong grassy hop aroma. Grassy hops in the flavour too. Nothing too different from most lagers this, very dry and lacking flavours - but it is clean and crisp.
