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.

Een biertje dat vlot wegdrinkt maar waar toch nog wat smaak aan is. Niet slecht.

BeerEclectic (7) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 13, 2014 does not count
33cl bottle. Pours pale like a Corona, with thin white head. Weak aroma. Taste of corn, rice, grass. Unpleasant reedy aftertaste. Appears to be a case of too much emphasis on trendy marketing and not enough attention to the beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dogbomb (940) - ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours pale gold with a decent, lasting, white lumpy head. Nose is fresh lemon and some fresh grasses. Taste is fresh too. Lemon and grassiness. There’s a taste in the palette, which is earthy. Not unpleasant, but "balancing".

Pint from Bridge Tavern Newcastle. Seemed like end of barrel as a touch sour. Other than that average - bready, not a ton of flavour.

Pale golden color with white mediaum-lasting head. Aroma of sweet malts, fruits and hops. Taste is smooth, with citrus and malts in front and sweet sugar on the background. Moderate bitterness on the aftertaste.

rdb84 (94) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very bright and translucent Pilsner color with a nice foam head. Looks a little like bubbles from soap. Aroma is a little yeasty, but refreshing. Some potato chips in there. Little skunky (amonia) as well (stale beer?). Taste is watery, thirst quencher. Strange development, after taste is a little like potato chips again.

Simple Belgian lager beer. Grainy, bitter, but also slightly artificial. Always around on hipster locations.
