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 cafs 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.

From Tesco. Quite pale with a thin white head, leaves good lacework. Medium bodied with a pleasant hoppy/malty palate. Better than Id expected after reading some of the other reviews, IMO!

BlackHaddock (6978) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2012
Green 33cl dumpie bottle, bought at Tanners in Bridgnorth, Shropshire. Best before 09-2007, drank 04-2007. Poured into a Duvel glass it looked like a lighter version of its brother, same large white head, but a much paler body. It is after all, a pale lager. What aroma? A hint of wheat, if I am being kind. Where have they hidden the 5.2%? It is a pleasant refeshing taste, but no alcohol could I detect. Disappointed really, not even a pilsner flavour, more Kolsch and light. Because the taste is so weak, the mouthfeel is also poor in my opinion. I was expecting a lot better from this beer (I am a shareholder of the brewery), I wont be buying it again.

This is a pretty much standard lager, nice blonde colour with a crisp taste on the palate

Bloke (28) - Wei Hai, CHINA - APR 3, 2012
Decent hoppy flavour, average carbonation so goes down smooth, gets quite bitter as it warms so keep it cool. Some people have been putting some strange flavours down for this but aside from a touch of sweet citrus, barely noticeable, its a decent but unspectular blonde.

luttonm (5719) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2012
.33l bottle from Kuca Piva, Zagreb. Cute bottle and story indeed. Pours pale cheap lager, a little foamy head. Honey crisp, sparkling carbonation. Belgian take on the Euro Macro Lager. sour malt and lagery-ness going on, but some hop to back it up. Pretty refined, this is an interesting lager. But still not great.

10/II/2012 33cl bottle @ home - BB: III/12 (2012-116)

Clear pale blond beer, creamy white head, stable, adhesive with nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: pretty sweet, corn, grains, animal fodder, little herbal. MF: ok carbon, light to medium body. Taste: bit of citrus in the start, fresh bitterness, grains, little sweet in the end. Aftertaste: some citrus, bit sweet and bitter ending. Ok lager, nothing too fancy.
