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.

Pale yellow with thick white lasting head a la Duvel. Lively carbonation. Nice hoppy aroma. Taste is corn mais & slight hops .- very crisp & fresh. Good lacing. Aroma a bit better than taste! Ok lager!

DruncanVeasey (7423) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2007
Posting #700. Pours anaemic pale gold with an impressively rocky but scummy head of froth. Aromas of tin, grain and bile. Thin, clean, piney and hay-flavoured. Running Cara Pils a close second as the worst belgian beer I’ve ever tasted. No, this is the worst Belgian beer I’ve ever tasted. Some popcorny sweetness after the swallow, but so what? Furniture-flavoured, fizzy, metallic and nasty.

GilBier (75) - Dendermonde, BELGIUM - JUN 20, 2007
Lighter Duvel version, pale yellow in color with nice snow white Duvel like head. Dry hoppy nose and pils malts in the aroma. Taste is nice and dry, refreshing and clean. Good clear taste with no so much caracter than its older brother.

AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUN 4, 2007
Bottle. Piss-yellow but nice head. I ordered without having any idea of what it was...silly me. Kinda skunky typical lager aroma, somehow redeeming straw/malt/light hops. Inoffensive but uninteresting.

Big coarse white lasting head. Pale yellow body with lots of carbonation. Light fruity aroma, very faint, with spicy, soft metallic hop notes. Taste is light, thin acidic metallic papery malts. Bitter soft metal aftertaste. Hardly any taste, just thin and acidic. Not very exciting. (0.33l bottle.)

Never seen it before so I ordered a bottle at a bar in Brussels.
Funny thing is that the bartender told me this was a brune style… I bet he was surprised as me when the beer poured a clear straw yellow. The head was tall and white, lasted the entire beer. The flavor was weak, very effervescent palate, candy sugars, notes of corn, mild but upfront yeasty, doughy flavor. A rather boring beer, and the same cost as a bottle of Orval… so guess what I drank next!
