COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rare Vos is flemmish for "Sly Fox," and the name of one of Brussels’ great cafes. It has a sweetly fruity malt character and yeasty spiciness. A fine dose of yeast permits the beer to mature and mellow in the bottle.

One of the many great beers brewed by the Ommegang Brewery. Nice spicey taste, full body and head. Cloudy in color. Great out of a goblet at 55 degrees or so.

12 oz. Per recommendation of yayforbeer. red-orange colour with offwhite head. Hints of spice, yeast, and somewhat hoppy, yet still smooth. definately enjoyable, easy to drink. not much thought required. light fruity aftertaste and aroma. slow ride.

DKlovesbeer (172) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2004
Opaque orange with a decent off-white head. Aroma is fruity and floral, lots of malt character with some yeast and hops in the nose. Flavor is crisp and spicy with a strong yeast presence. Has a hearty mouthfeel. Palate is dry and moderately complex but this is no Chimay Bleu. Mostly fruity malt with a peppery finish and some notes of yeast and alcohol. Overall, this would be an excellent choice of beverage when you want the character of a strong Belgian Ale but not the alcohol.

I read all the reviews and most raters gave it a ho-hum, ok review. So I was not really expecting much, but bought it anyway because I liked the other offerings from Ommegang. Just goes to show you can’t rely on anybody but yourself when it comes to beer. Served in a beautiful Christmas tulip glass. Dirty Orange pour with a creamy orange head that stays and laces nicely. Quality all around here. Nice fruity, hoppy aroma. The flavor is complex and wonderful, reminding me of Maudite (which I love), fruity, yeasty and spicy, with just a touch of hop bitterness at the end. Very flavorful and tasty, but not too alcoholic... I could drink this all night. Ommegang comes through again, this will be a regular buy. Excellent!

Cloudy copper/brown color. Aromas of hops, yeast, and spice. Taste is a little sour, with the spice standing out.

mdi (573) - Nebraska, USA - DEC 2, 2004
75cl bottle, no BBD. Copper/red hue, good head, clinging lace. Zingy, peppery aroma, slight wet wood smell. Thin body, sub-dued malt presence with more peppery earthiness...good bitterness for the body. THis is a session-type beer. Not something that makes me go "wow" with its complexity, but decent for sittin’ around and sluggin’...if you like slightly funky bitter beers.
