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.

Bottle drank in extreme heat. Appearance is golden with little head. Very hoppy aroma. Slight bitterness and nice clean finish. Extremely refreshing. For a larger this is good.

Caytinator (1005) - Waco, Texas, USA - JUL 1, 2012
33cL bottle. Very very light color, 1.5 finger head, frothy. Bitter is the predominant taste, but light. Laces well, definitely clear & pale.

Andy Goes To the Brussels Nightshops Vol. 2

Pours a very light blonde color, very clear, with a big semi loose head and some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is Skunkity skunk skunk skunk, and sweet malt, and breakfast cereal.

The flavor is malty, mildly salt, displays some clean malt, some sweet corn, I then wrote down some rambling statement that even Belgians wanted something that tasted like Keystone and how the penguin on the label RULES!

It’s worth saying again...
The Penguin on the Label RULES!

Bottled - I feel like I’m drinking a Budweiser.. Almost no head, wheat, crisp taste. Fizzy. Seems like every company just has to have a beer like this among everything else.

tinybears (69) - BELGIUM - JUN 13, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2012 Blond, white hopped premium beer. Very good branding / marketing and perfect fit in between pils and strong beers. Should be compared in its own class, high end pils.

2.2
AdamChandler (5052) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 4, 2012


A - 3 finger totally clear head big and small bubbles SRM of 3

S - Chestnut and bud light mild wheat scent

T - Lager / pilsner taste. Wheat and light malts as well as mild champagne taste but cheap champagne

M - 80/20 carbonation light body. Mild hop finish.

O – I’m not a fan of this beer. 2/5. Too generic in taste.


2.7
tommann (3758) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours pale gold with a large head. Aroma is mostly grassy with a little skunk. Taste has lemon to start with a bitter, grassy finish.

2.5
The_Bish (1123) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2012
Pale lager ain’t really cutting it on the flavour front. Pint at Lord Clifden (well, a half fortunately).

2.9
vipinvelp (4441) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2012
Clear yellow with decent white foam head. Tastes like a stronger pilsener, with some bitter aftertaste. (Velp 201202)

3.1
ManVsBeer (10485) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2012
Slightly mis-marketed as a blonde as this has genuine fine lager qualities to it.
