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 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.

Clear pale golden blonde with a light flavour and a grainy, hoppy and fruity aroma.

nathanvc (391) - Brugge, BELGIUM - MAY 22, 2017
Pours clear pale golden with a foamy, white head. The aroma contains malt, grain, grass and light hops. It tastes light malty sweet and medium grassy bitter which lingers in the finish. Soft carbonation, watery texture, dry finish yet quenching.

mrjez (592) - Osaka, JAPAN - MAR 19, 2017
Bottle. Pours a pale clear yellow gold, big rocky white head. Ok aroma of lager malt, lemon, spice. Sweet malt, simple yet clean flavour, a little pepper. Drinks refreshingly well, crisp and dry. Goes well with sushi. Didnt mind this.

john44 (3034) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2017
Bottle. Very pale straw in colour. Malty grainy base. Lightly fruity. Some grassy hops. Very mild; not harsh in any way. Not metallic like some. Sweetish. Dry slightly hoppy finish. Very easy drinking. OK for a Pale Lager. (2008)

rodsquad (201) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - FEB 3, 2017
Bottle as gift. Clear yellow-gold with white foam head. Nose of butter, toast, yeast, cut grass, dank pale malt and feint lime juice. More butter in the taste with gentle, smooth lager malt and clean hop flavour. It has a soft, oily feel with a gentle carbonation. Expecting crisp sharpness and found a soft and refreshing malt lager. And I think all the better for it.

Bu chez Ellis Burger Brussels. Bouteille de 33cl. Verre a Vedett 33cl. Couleur : blonde dore. Lgre mousse relativement ar. Au nez : note de malts et de levure sensation dune pils . En bouche : got de Malts (pillsner ?) rafrachissant meilleurs que dautres pils pas exceptionnelle bu en mangeant et je pense que il en fallait pas plus pas moins !

Backlog. Synchronizing with notes and Untappd.
Nicely spicy and slightly sweet. Kind of mediocre...

PlutonowyMan (710) - POLAND - DEC 3, 2016
Barwa złota, niemal klarowna. Biała, wysoka piana, trwała i zdobi szkło jest in plus dla tego Vedetta. Aromat słodowy z delikatna kanalizą w tle i lekką nutą przypraw. Smak podobnie jak wyżej ale tym razem bez zapachu z toalety. Goryczka to kolejny plus, długa i intensywna, nieco trawiasta. Wysycenie wysokie.

bonkiedeaap (736) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2016
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is clear light yellow colored and has a large and stable white head, with nice carbonation. The aroma is malty and sweet and has also has notes of grass, yeast, citrus, hops and honey. The taste is quite dry in the mouth, but with a hint of lemon has a wonderfully fresh character. Reasonable short finish and a little dry at the end.

LazyPyro (983) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2016
330ml bottle. Clear pale yellow colour with a one-two finger white head, surprisingly good retention and lacing. Aroma: malt. Taste: light sweet malt, faint grassy hops, slight bitterness/metallic note. Thin/watery body, soft carbonation. Not bad... nice to see a lager that actually has a decent head and retains it, but as for the taste theres nothing memorable about it.
