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.

Pours a foamy lasting tan head on a hazy amber orange body. Lots of fruit specially oranges in the aroma. Also yeast and spices. Flavor is very special with lots of spices, malt and fruit and a dry and harsh end. Quite sharp and edgy and rather difficult to appreciate.

From the 750 ml bottle - It poured a tall beige head, with a rich "Belgian Ale" aroma, and had a lovely rich taste, although a tad light for the style. I do recommend this brew!

Truthfully wasn’t very impressed by this. Maybe I expected more out of it. Decent yeasty, floral aomra. Dark red, light brown appearance, with a huge disappearing beige head. Basic Belgian flavor. Sweet yeasty, spicy flavor. Not the best Ommegang.

Clear orange appearance, excellent bright and crisp fruit aroma, It has a nice bite right when you take the first sip, but there’s not nearly the complexity to this that there is in the Hennepin, sweet flavor with a hint of alcohol, leaves a somewhat buttery taste on the palate, invite a robot to your next party, they can just rage all night and make beeping noises.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 16, 2004
2004 750mL bottle. Pours a bright orange/copper, fine bubbles, bottle conditioned (transluscent) and a large off-white head. Aroma has light peaches, apricots, hints of apple and plenty of dry belgian yeast. On the end is a lightly metallic, almost earthy note. Flavor is lightly fruity, chewy, full flavor with a pleasantly sweet, but not oversweet malt. Lightly bitter, earthy hops are detectable on the finish as well as plenty of yeast. I found this beer to be delicious, extremely drinkable and well-balanced. Maybe a bit too much bitterness and a touch too much dryness from the yeast/hops, but quite good.

12 oz Bottle. Pretty good. Fruity and sweet aroma & taste. Has a surprisingly dry finish.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2004
Sampled during a Brewery Tour. Our tour guide described this as a session ale. Now I get it. Still, given a choice I’d defer to another Ommegang product: Witte, Hennepin, or Ommegang.

rudolf (2342) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 7, 2004
Citrus and yeast very heavy in the aroma, joined by an oakey/cidery smell. Extremely smooth wheaty malt that quickly goes spicy and tangy. Oak from aroma appears in a bitter, barnyard finish

Crockett (1012) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2005 Orangey clouded pour with some dark yeast sediment. Medium sized off white head. Raisny sweet yeast nose. The beer itself is fruity and tart. Lightly peppery and has touches of caramel. Quite a nice dry finish.
