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.

rauchbier (3891) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2010
Bottle, from Waitrose Lincoln. Gold, thin but lasting white head and gentle condition. Chalky grain and low flowery hop in the nose, solid hop bitterness in the mouth with more chalkiness, lingering grainy finish with a touch of hop bitterness remaining.

shrubber85 (11408) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Can. Sweet-sour barley malt and grass hops aroma. Pale yellow color with minimal head. Sweet light barley malt and lightly bitter grass hops. Drinkable but not much else.

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

3.2
KyotoLefty (10264) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 3, 2010
Bottled. Great grassy aroma with pilsner malt. Malty flavor with ok hops. Sweet, decent pils.

3.1
berlinoise2go (689) - NORWAY - JUL 20, 2010
Bottle (33cl) from Vinmonopolet, Oslo. Pale golden colour. Large white head that slowly settles to a thick film and considerable lacing. Aroma of straw, grass, mild hops, light malt. Average carbonation, light body. Fruity hop taste, lightly bitter finish. Pleasantly balanced, but overall boring.

2.6
ClubGonzo (5670) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 18, 2010
A pale lager from Brouwerij Duvel Moortgat...could be interesting, I guess. Pours a conventional pale lager body with a nose of grassy hops and hints of yeast. Some cereals in there, too. Taste is mellow light malts, corn and some astringent yeastiness so common in Belgian blonde ales, though only faint traces are present in this one. Moderate hop bitterness, and although Vedett is not exactly par with most of its Belgian counterparts, it is not bad at all for a pale lager.

2.1
Abio (1869) - BERMUDA - JUN 11, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2011 Bottle. Pours out very lightly yellow. Good white head that holds nice. Hoppy-bread-grassy some sour aroma. Watery, bready, lightly sour fruited taste.

2.4
KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - APR 20, 2010
Bottle at Falko Hotel, Belgium.
Pours an average lively yellow with a nice white head. Aroma is what happens when skunks poop cardboard. Flavor is complacent bready malt and buttery hops with corn. Tingly on the tongue. Meh.

3.3
dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2010
Watery yellowish golden pour, small off white head. Aroma of pilsener malt with some hops. Flavour is a full malty and hoppy flavour. Nice and smooth beer, could drink this all night.
