Vedett Extra Blond – 6 pack
Vedett Extra Blond is from Duvel-Moortgat, who have been brewing export pilsners for many years. Vedett Extra Blond brings all this pils experience together, but represents, without a doubt, the Duvel-Moortgat brewery’s quirkiest and most out-of-the-box brand. The beer was refreshed and re-launched in 2003, but it has been in production since the 1940s.
Its fresh appearance incorporates everything you might expect from a premium pilsner: straw-coloured with a snowy-white head, and beautiful pearlisation in the glass. It’s an excellent thirst-quencher, right from the first mouthful, which is immediately followed by a subtly bitter aftertaste. Both the aroma and the taste of this beer are characterised by a finely-balanced hoppiness, with a slight touch of vanilla and fruitiness that carries through to the finish.
The mildly malted character remains pleasantly in the background, which gives the beer an outstandingly refreshing taste without losing its full mouthfeel.
