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.

Gangstergafje (259) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2015
The beer doesn’t have a special appearance. It is pilsner: rough white foam, pale golden yellow color, bubbles arising too the top. The aroma is hoppy. It has a nice fruity aroma, there is also some malt. The taste is just like the Asian pilsners. More hoppy and malty than normal pilsner, but not very special.

33cl bottle at The Handmade Burger Co in Silverburn. Very pale and watery. Huge head that disappears.

It’s refreshing, but hardly distinguishable from ordinary pale lager (Grolsch, Jupiler etc.)

jamaty (1240) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2015
Pajiza muy muy clara y brillante, con un dedo de espuma y. Un agradable olor a malta. Muy suave al paladar, muy bebible con carbonatacion media y amargor final marcado, y algo citrico. Agradable para tomar en cantidad.

Blind geproefd. Groen klein flesje. Pilsig uiterlijk en geur. Prima blond qua smaak.

High rating huh? Well, I don´t know, it works fine for me. I wouldn´t guess that it is a Belgian beer. It seems like ordinary lager or even a strong pils. Which I simply don´t mind.

Golden colour with a white head. Much of the taste comes from the malts, with a slightly bitter hop taste. Average beer. Nothing special.

Boa cerveja, mas não chega a ser sensacional como a witbier, vale tomar novamente. Tomei em Londres. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
