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.

Very hoppy and bitter. Too bitter for my taste. Like the label though and the bottle.

GothGargoyle (1248) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2014
At 't Kroegske, Oostende.  Ordered something random I hadn't heard of from the beer menu, and ended up with this inoffensive (if uninteresting) lager. Fizzy yellow with a fluffy white head. Aroma is bread, clover. Light bodied, crisp on the palate with a high carbonation. Taste is white bread, straw, hint of chamomile.

Serapac (110) - CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 15, 2014
Bottle. Another bland, incredibly boring Belgian lager, on par with the infamous Jupiler. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

martjoobolut (742) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 6, 2014
0,33L bottle, BB 07.2015. Pours clear straw with off-white head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is grains, hay, hops, malt. Flavor is sweet & bitter, grains, malt, hay. Finish is sweet with some dry bitterness. Overall: nothing special, just some well-made lager.

darrennelson12 (414) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2014
In bottle (Amsterdam); very easy drinking Belgium blonde .. milder than most of the other options, and not nearly as good as Duvel but a well hopped and balanced session beer.

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
