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.

Bottled at Duvel Café in April 2003. Golden coloured with average head. Raisiny malt aroma. Sweet and lightly grassy with clean, yet soft, mouthfeel. Some bitterness. A decently well made lager, but without character.

fiulijn (15217) - 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.
