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.

Batavi (60) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2015
Uitgeschonken in La Chouffe bierglas, helder strogeel bier met rotsachtige stabiele witte schuimkraag. Geur van hooi, gras en kruidige hop. De smaak is zeer goed voor een pilsener, aroma en geur is als een lichtere en waterige variant van Duvel. Licht droge smaken met pilsenermout en extra bittere hopsmaak. Wat tonen van vers brood, gras, citrus en vanille. Stevige carbonatie, mooie balans in aroma en smaak, lekkere bittere en droge afdronk met hoptonen in het smaakpallet. Hoewel lager/pilsener absoluut niet mijn favoriete bierstijl is, kan de Vedett Extra Blond rekenen op een van de hoogste scores voor deze stijl tot nu toe. Heel wat anders dan het waterige Budweiser wat ik deze week ook heb geproefd. Zo brouw je dus een lekker premium pilsener waar je tenminste wel wat smaak en diepgang in kan vinden. Goed koud gedronken is het bovendien verfrissend en dorstlessend bier. Prima bier deze Vedett Extra Blond.

Towey1989 (235) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2015
Can from The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) Pours a clear straw colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of grainy malt, grass, hay and lemon. Taste of grainy malt, grass and bitter lemony hops. Light bodied, high carbonation and an oily texture. A bittersweet, grassy finish. Nicely balanced, but gassy and quite bland.

thirstyrabbit (1276) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 28, 2015
Bottle. Pale yellow body, medium to small head. Thin pale lager aroma. Crisp and clean pale lager taste. Clean and sessionable pale lager. So what’s the downside? It’s boring as hell.
