Vedett lager pours with good head and great carbonation. Phenomenol head retention for a lager – what you would expect from Duvel!
The aroma is like a german pilser. Herbal hops with a certain mint character are present.

This Belgian lager has a german pils taste. Delicate grassy hops, sweet malt ... touch of bitterness at finish. Maybe the sweeter end of the German pils flavour spectrum.

Overall, a great pilsner. Up there with Bitburger, Radeburger, Veltins etc. Just a bit on the sweet side perhaps but nice for a contrast with more bitter German pils.

86/100

I had this in a can in Belgium purchased from a cooler at a mini-market, enjoyed chilled in a cup.

The color is golden straw with light hazed thick white head crowns with fine bead and spots of lace stick. The smell is light spice of belgian yeast with mild malt with light sweet odor and faint fruit and honey accent which is pleasant.
The feel is thinnish with moderate carbonation level and light bitterness with mild sweetness and gentle spiced tinge with crisp dry finish -enjoyable texture.

The flavor is good with slight malt up front followed by spice flavor from yeast and gentle peppery hop quality with a slight honey tinge of malt with mild herbal element accenting the pils malt base with a nice dry yet light finish. Overall a very enjoyable blond, not great but well made and flavorful.

Poured from the tap into a 25mL glass in Shanghai China.

A: The beer is a pale hay-gold color with lots of streams of carbonation coming through. Head is 1 finger, pure white and lasts a few minutes.

S: Very citrus - lemon peel with bread. Some grass and wildflower.

T: Light and balanced. Good sourdough bread character. Some light floral hoppy notes coming in. Grassy, finishing with a hint of lemon zest. Nice and refreshing.

F: Can't be said enough. Light and refreshing.

Overall: Very solid beer. Can finally see what people here are raving about. If only all pales were this subtly flavorful rather than going for ONLY refreshing. A great reminder that good beers don't have to be extreme, dark, etc.
