Lively clear straw look. Foamy head. Sweet and fruity smell.
The ABV hides quite well in the flavors and the taste is quite malty.
It has little presence in the palate. However, the malt aroma last quite a while in the mouth.
it was rather refreshing but I expected more presence.

One of the lightest straw coloured lagers I have tried, not much on the nose, heavy carbonation, no head at all. Nice malty flavour, quite bitter no sweetness.

330mL bottle poured into 0.3L Stiegl beer mug.

Will try again, will look out for the draft version.

The color of gold almost clear. White, high foam, durable and adorned with glass is in plus for this Vedetta. Malt aroma with a slight smell of the toilet in the background and a slight hint of spice. Taste same as above, but this time no odor from the toilet. Gentian is another plus, long and intense, slightly grassy. High saturation.

Pours straw coloured into a tulip glass from a 330ml bottle. The white head is three fingers high, sparse, and foamy with great bubbles that cling to the glass. The lager looks quite lively with good levels of carbonation.

It has a basic aroma of grain, cardboard, and some mild yeast. There isn't really anything special about it so far. The flavour is as the nose, standard sour bread, mineral water, and crisp grain with some bready aftertaste but not enough to truly notice. In all honesty I probably couldn't tell this apart from an Amstel.

It's light bodied, with a wet feel and moderate carbonation.

Really nothing to say about it other than it's more refreshing than flavourful.

Brouwerij Duvel Moortgat NV "Vedett"
33 cl green glass bottle, coded "12 2015 L4070213:18"
@ Dr. Duncan's, Liverpool UK on 29 March 2015

Notes: Skunked. Crystal clear golden body. Fluffy bright white head. Excellent retention and massively effervescent. Great lacing. An impressive looking glass of beer! Flavor delivers malt that's slightly sweet and mildly grainy, backed by grassy, leafy, floral and gently spicy hops. With the exception of the green glass bottle and skunking this is a really nice pilsner. Dry finish. Crisp, clean, refreshing - and satisfying.

Slightly better than a main stream lager, but not by much. Refreshing with a slightly thicker than normal mouth-feel. A slight taint of wet cardboard mixed with a metallic after taste. Quite refreshing but at 5.2% alcohol, a bit strong for me as a session beer. Could have spent my money on something better.

From a 330ml cold can. Nice lager. Nothing to write home about but crisp and refreshing. Only subtle tastes of Belgium but it is there. Would be nice with food. I don't think this is intended to be a particularly flavoursome beer, more a refreshing cold one on a hot day.
