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.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2008 A Mes rate: Well erm... it’s a lager and I generally dont like them too much and this is no different. Thin and lifeless. Nothing to write home about.

Sten (632) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2005 Just like most Belgian pilsners. There is some carbonation and a bittery and hoppy taste. Not good not really bad. I expected much more from a pilsner by moortgat. (Bottle 33cl)

fiulijn (14552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2005
Very light blond color. Too light aroma. Simple taste, dry, a bit spicy, some very light citrus fruits, partially aromatic hopping; better when warmer. Strong bitterness. Acceptable as table Pilsener otherwise quite useless.

Lamahasto (4) - Brussel, BELGIUM - JUL 2, 2005 does not count
A very beutifuul bottle but thats all. I thought Moortgat brewery could make a better pilsener. The afterstaste is that of water but the beer has a refreshing lemon aroma. No bitterness at all, and that for a pilsener.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Pale golden, decent head. Soft in body with a short, dry slightly hoppy finish. Ok if not exactly thrilling. 210196

Mklein818 (172) - Etterbeek, Virginia, BELGIUM - MAY 10, 2005
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 (8089) - 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 (13598) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2004
Bottle. OK nice head, quite stable. Flavour is a little sweet with a little acidic fruitiness.

maeib (8718) - 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.
