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.

Blond colour. Malty with bitter aftertaste. Very strong aroma of herbs (a smell of marihuana?).

thanatosti (1844) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2013
33 cl. bottle @ Cafe Olivier, Utrecht. Light yellow with a white head. Grainy aroma with faint hops. Good bitter taste with some hops in the aftertaste. A real thirst quencher on a hot day but pretty taste in the winter too. On of the few decent Belgian lagers in my opinion.

Bottled 330ml ; Devon ; UK ; Light lemony aroma ; Golden yellow color with solid head ; Refreshing taste ; Not bad.

TaxiDriver (1847) - Stadland, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2012
A strong smell of grass, some citrus, light flowery. The small white fizzy-foamy head has a normal duration, the body is pale yellow. A light bitter taste, quite malty. The body is light, very dry and a little bit creamy with a lively carbonation.

Desverger (13711) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2012
(330ml bottle from Sainsbrurys) Golden colour with foamy white head. Aroma/taste is sweet malt grain and corn and unpleasant metallic taste. Didn’t like this, not for me.

DandyLion (529) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2012
330 ml bottle. Fine drinkable blonde beer. Tastes lagery. Has a huge white head. I imagine this would be amazing on a hot summers day. As this is December however it's passable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MalcolmTucker (924) - SCOTLAND - DEC 10, 2012
This one is a bit of strange beast. Promises to be Belgian but is more like a German lager. Drinkable but a just a little bit shite.

1.6
bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2012
(33cl bottle) Pours a clear pale yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of skunk, grass, grain, and hay. Flavor of grass, skunky, and grain with a mildly bitter finish.

Christos (5909) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2012
Green stubby bottle of 330 ml, at home. Poured into a lager glass. ABV is 5,2%. Pours a very clean and pale yellow colour, with two fingers of semi-frothy/semi-soapy head, with very good retention. Foam leaves quite a lace.Lively carbonation in the glass. Aroma is grass and malts. Crisp taste, mostly malty and grainy. Nothing too spectalurar. Short bitter finish. Very thin body and quite high carboantion. Little dryness on the palate. I guess it would make a difference if it was a really hot day out, this beer is quite refreshing, and highly drinkable in all its mediocrity, and maybe it would have scored a grade or two more, but unfortunately it’s not.

2.6
Beermack (725) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2012
33cl bottle. Pours pale gold/blonde with huge bright white head and plenty of lacing - looks good. Aroma is grain, vegetal notes, buttery sweetness. Taste is fairly crisp, but nothing to shout about - grain and a bit of herb in there, but some off putting vegetal notes messing around. No real aftertaste. Too fizzy. One to drink very cold and very quickly on a hot day.
