Wheat beer is an inseparable part of Belgian beer culture. No surprise then, that, after the success of the Vedett Extra Blond, the Vedett Extra White saw the light of day, in 2008. The thinking seems to have been that a premium pils should be complemented by a premium wheat beer. And rightly so.
The initial appearance of the beer is slightly cloudy and pale, with a greenish shine. Immediately after pouring you can discern the herbal aroma in the glass – but it’s not overpowering.
Citrus is the main note, with some coriander in the background. The taste is mild, slightly sour and slightly grainy, which provides for the desired full-mouth feel.
This beer is outstandingly refreshing, a great thirst quencher with a sweet, honeyed, lightly-perfumed finish. In order to ensure that taste has developed fully, the beer is re-fermented for a number of weeks, either in the bottle or the barrel.
