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.

JonMoore (1875) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2006
Bottle. Pale yellow colour with a large white head. Malty aroma with a touch of citrus and hops. Light, pretty clean tasting, hoppy- ish with a bitter finish.

johninmelb (1126) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2006
Pours very pale with a fluffy white head. Smells a bit sharp and at the same time a bit musty. Flavour is thirst-quenchingly dry with quite a bit of citrus and grapefruit. Finish is sharp, turning sour. All in all a pretty standard euro pils.

Sigmund (5181) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2006 Rerate bottle, bought at Vinmonopolet: With a brisk pour you get a very large and lasting head, and the carbonation is not too much after all. Fairly decent hops place this pils in the "slightly above average" category. I’m upping it 1 point. Original rating: 330 ml bottle, as Vedett Extra Blond, ABV is 5.2%. Courtesy of Cardinal, Stavanger. Also available in Norway in Vinmonopolet stores (bestillingsutvalget). The beer’s website is www.vedett.com . Served in Duvel glass (same brewery). Very pale colour, decent head. Moderately hoppy aroma, notes of cardboard and "dusty attic". Flavour is moderately hoppy - this is an average pils. A bit too carbonated for my taste.

Bart (2940) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 13, 2006
Pale yellow colour, average white head. Deep hoppy aroma. Smouth taste, medium body. Finish is dry and light bitter, crispy. Not bad.

ghawener (1467) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - OCT 24, 2005
Bottle: I bought this is one Sao Paulo in a Gourmet Shop for $7! Coming from Moortgat I expected more; very fizzy, minimal head, taste is watery but refreshing. No nasty aftertaste, overall just OK.

toccata (70) - grembergen, BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2005
Yellow-blond beer, big white foam and intensive livelyness. Clean malty aroma’s, some fruits and some dry hoopyness. Taste is clean, blond malts, some citrus hints and faint hoppy bitterness in the finish. Nice refreshing blond beer.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - SEP 17, 2005
It’s a general pilsener with a nice appearance. Also general taste, a bit on the lighter side then average.

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 (645) - 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 (14990) - 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.
