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.

clear pale gold, decent white head, quite soft and sweet with a straw and fruity malt flavour and a hint of bitter. Quite an average beer but not bad

beeebon (198) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2014
As far as pale lager goes this one isn’t too bad. Very pale blonde colour and lively carbonation. Smells slightly grassy and of hay, similar in taste with slight malt and mellow hop. Quite crisp and relatively refreshing.

Au nez: pain de mis, miel, "farine mélangée à de l'eau"(c'est l'odeur la plus dominante mais la plus dur à décrire). Légèrement sucré et mielleuse enfants de bouche. Une bonne bière de base..

Icedwarf (347) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2014
Helder lichtgeel bier. Smaak is licht bitter en kruidig en blijft neit lang hangen, gemiddeld bier.

Pale gold with an average head. Quite gassy - I likened the texture in your mouth to that of prosecco. Slightly metallic but the hops are there waiting to burst through. Not the best Belgian beer but not too bad.

ABT_S54 (168) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2014
33cl bottle poured into a Delirium Tremens glass. Pours a light straw colour with a huge white head. Highly carbonated and too gassy. Aroma is akin to a cheap lager (i.e. Carling, Stella) and the taste being little better. Not my style at all. After one sip this was passed onto someone else. Close on the worst beer I have tried.
