COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rare Vos is Flemish for "Sly Fox," and the name of one of Brusselsí 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.

A superior Belgian. Blended flavors of orange, cloves, and hops make for a easy to enjoy great beer. Pour and let sit for a few moments for the flavor to collect. Then savor to your heartís desire.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 13, 2005
Pours amber orange with heavy carbonation. Head continues to grow long after this beer is poured. Aroma is yeasty with a bit of spice. Flavor is carmel. Body is smooth and quite refreshing. Easy drinking solid brew.

mike mcneil (660) - St Augustine, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2005
Pours a hazy, rusty orange color with a fairly thick and durable off-white head. Aroma dominated by a fruity sweetness of pear, apple and caramel along with a noticeable yeasty, bubblegum presence. Carbonation is lively but not distracting as with some Belgian styles. Flavor is straight forward and pleasant, but not very complex; mostly a sweet fruity palate with some restrained spiciness. Finish seemed a bit harsh. Not a memorable brew from Ommegang.

I disagree with the crowd-this is my favorite of the Ommegangs (possible exception being the blend beer 3 Philosophers). The aroma has fruit overtones and actually beats the taste factor IMHO. The flavor is more complex than the tradditional Ommegang and I love it at room temperature. The head of the beer was very bubbly. While it is not as complex as other Belgian beers out there as far as spices, hops etc, it is smooth and has just the right kick to it.

Sweet and spicy from the 750 ml bottle. Darkish amber brown beer. Good on many levels, but not better than other Ommegangs.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - MAR 25, 2005
12oz bottle. Pours a deep amber, very clear with a big off-white head that dies fast. Very sweet aroma of caramel, bread, fruit, and slight oxidation. This brew was very heavy on the palate with a lower carbonation that didnít realy bring the spices out very well and left this beer very mellow and malt heavy feeling. Very big caramel sweetness shows up front followed by some fruits and orange peel. Iím not sure if this bottle was a bit old but i picked up a bit of oxidation in it, iíll have to find another bottle sometime and see if its better.

green (186) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Cellar Temp. Copper colored with a big fizzy head. Very nice caramel and molasses aroma. A bit un-complex for a Belgian. Sweet with a very big, dominant fig flavor. Finish is no different that the rest. Not to bad but it looks like something transcendent but wasnít.

Hazy amber with a thick coarse head. Aroma is sweet butterscotch and fruitiness. Flavor is caramel, molasses, licorice, and orange rind. A nice mellow and complex beer. Very clean finish.

Krausen (102) - USA - MAR 17, 2005
Good easy drinking summer beer. Yeasty and spicy, with a bubblegum phenolic that brought me back to my days in little leauge. Lively carbonation dances on the tounge and a crisp bitter finish cleans the palate for the next beer...
