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.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - DEC 4, 2006
On tap at Brussells beer week. Pours light golden with a thin white head. Crisp and lightly hopped nose with a bit of a metallic note. Hops were spicy and the malts were dry grainy tasting. Very watery flavor. Not as crisp and lively flavor as a pils and not much belgian yeast character to it.

SilkTork (5277) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2008 Nov, 2006 Cafe Belge, Eastbourne. Sharply carbonated. Served very cold. Little flavour comes through. Soft and bland. [2.2]
Jan, 2008 EuroStar buffet. Extra Blond - 5.2%. A pale lager with a creamy carbonation and a herbal finish. Not offensive - quite refreshing. I thought I had a scoop on the train, but come home to find I had already had it! [2.3]

altonbrownd (3681) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 20, 2006
Bottle at Loosje, A’dam. This pilsener is all the rage in Brussels, so wanted to try. It’s Duvel like, but much milder. Yellow beer, pleasant, not much aftertase, goes down very well.

lululegrand (94) - gent, BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2006
Yellow beer with big white foam. Fine pils aroma with some herbs in the nose. Clean taste and very drinkable. Afthertaste is on the light basis and ends with the smell of freshly cut grass and a pils like maltyness.

gputty (456) - Virgina Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 30, 2006
From bottle. Hazy pale yellow pour with wispy white head. Nose has flower petal hints. Flavor is sharp pear skins with a light yeasty spice. OK.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - SEP 29, 2006
33CL stubby bottle. Lightly hazy straw, thin ring of a white head. Very weak nose, slightly sour yeast. Thin bubbly body. Almost devoid of flavor, a bit of grass and herbal hop. Nothing to it.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - SEP 22, 2006
Very pale golden/straw with a big sticky cap of head. Fresh herbal soapy hops. A clean smell. Lots of Saaz character: dill, mint, hay. A pleasant amount of hop flavor but very low bitterness. A little yeasty bread in the finish. Soft clean palate. I don’t usually bother much with pils, but I liked this. A solid little beer.

Psyche (3) - DENMARK - AUG 23, 2006 does not count
I just tasted this when in Antwerpen. They must have bleached it, because it was barely yellow. I’ve never tasted a pils with this lack of flavor. It was like water. An ordinary Tuborg pils has more taste, and that’s saying a lot. I wonder what Belgium was thinking when they made this...

Golden amber in color with a thick white head. Skunky rich grass hoppy smell. Water soapy malt flavor.
