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.

A very transparent look. Smell is very soft, pretty non-existant. Taste is quite regular. The foam fades away quite quick. Feel is not bad, could be better, though. Overall, is a regular beer.

As reviewed for Vedett Extra Blond.
Very pale yellow. Lots of effervescence but only a 1 cm head.
Grainy aroma with a little malt.
Standard euro lager flavour with maybe a little more yeast and sweetness.
Preferable to other euro lagers.

Tap at kaiba in Shanghai.

Big creamy fluffy 1.5f.head fades slowly nice foamy mountains and lacing everywhere, clear golden pilsner blond color.

Nose is interesting, something wrong thought, a sulfur and phenolic chemical cleaner fruity ester, sweet blond malts, touch lemony, weird fruity like infection almost def Brett with too much oxygen.

Taste brings sweet malts out front, golden blond malts, light pilsner and lager like, with sweet lager malts, toasty, into big grassy almost spicy hops, mild fruity esters, touch of phenols and minerality otherwise not bad. No idea where the horrible nose came from. Finish dry light crisp, lingering bitter grassy spicy hops.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, little crisp, decent carb, little soft lager.

Overall, it's not bad if you plug your nose. Taste wasn't bad so no idea where the horrible nose came from.

Solid beer in the style. Nothing offputting, light and crisp. Not something I'd reach for, but happy to try and happy to drink one at a BBQ.
