The Midweek Drink - Vedett Extra Session IPA

For today’s Midweek Drink, I have chosen an IPA brewed and bottled by the Duvel Moortgat Brewery: Vedett Extra Session IPA.

A brief history of Duvel Moortgat Brewery

The brewery was founded by Jan-Leonard Moortgat in 1871, Breendonk, Beligum.. The Moortgat brewery is well known for producing the highly popular Flemish golden pale ale called Duvel (meaning Devil). At the end of the First World War, the name, Duvel, was changed to Victory Ale, but was later changed back to Duvel due to its alcohol content (8.5%).

In 1945, Vedett was introduced by Albert Moortgat, Jan’s son, and has continued to gain popularity with young customers in Belgium and across Europe.

Three senses and a beverage

The ingredients used are: barley malty, wheat malt, oats and spelt. It is bottled in a 330ml bottle and has an alcohol content of 2.7%.

It has a pale yellow colour as you pour with medium carbonation and a light, frothy white head that dissipates very slowly. It has a hoppy and floral aroma with a crisp bitter taste that is light, finished off with a sweet and fruity dry finish.
