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.

shadey (2048) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 1, 2005
Deep golden orange color with a nice creamy white, long lasting head. Nice mild aroma with spice. Very balanced flavor of spice and citrus. Clean, well carbonated palate. Great stuff.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 25, 2005
In the 750 ml bottle. Pours an orange color. Giant volcano errupting head that just will not be contained in a glass. Aroma quite lacking. Flavor is mundane with disappointing written all over it in my book. Low in yeast flavor. Medicine-like finish. Is this really true to Belgian style?

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2005 i had higher expectations for this beer. muted spicy, citrus flavor at first developed more character as i let the beer warm to closer to room temperature. a decent beer.

sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2005
Beautiful orange/ruby with a huge, white, bubbly head. Aroma lighter than expected: Floral, orange, and yeast. Flavor light but pleasant; similar in character to aroma, along with a nice alcohol warmth. Mouthfeel is very solid: full, robust, and quite clean. Overall, a little light, but very solid.

Dull auburn with a slender copper highlighting the edges. Gorgeous one inch crown of dusty yellowed fluffy meringue roots itself to the top for an eternity. A thick muddled skim remains once it does fade through from consumption and the lacing collapses into thin webbed butterfly wings. Lavishly beautiful for the winkers! Quite a dry yeastified nose with a touch of fruits.It’s a dry yeast forest of dried mushrooms, dust, chalk, and alumnium foil with a trickling under current of fruits adding some soft banana, pear, and starfruit. Flavors are extremely mellow and calm; it has an onslaught of yeasty dry stuff carrying over from the nose with a chalky, alkaline, celery thing taking up a good portion of it. Wheat cracker backing; smidges of fruits kinda surface around the corners; pear mostly, and I think thats mostly because of the feel which is much like a pear, it has that odd texture that kinda dulls the tongue off with a drying sense. The pushy chalk and tin sits far to long though and never wants to leave the palate or lets the fruits get by. Feel is just shy of a medium body with a dump truck of dryness and the formly mentioned chalkyness and tin. Its not a total puckering though, its a mellow easy dryness, but by a fair amount over what I like. This was to dry for my taste, the mellowness is too mellow and the complexity it seemingly has just doesn’t seem to really peak any where and the dryness flat out takes too much out of it for me. A dry yeast beast masqueraded as a scrumptiously lush looking brew...hmm...Viking brew anyone?

Dogbrick (10740) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2005 This brew is a luminous orange/amber color with a medium off-white head. Thin and sticky lacing. The aroma is lightly spiced and fruity, along with some yeast. Medium-bodied with peach, yeast, wheat and spice flavors. The finish is dry and fruity, with sweet malt peeking through. Pretty solid through and through.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - FEB 10, 2005
poured a cloudy caramel with a big thick head and good lacing. Aroma and flavor is of malt and spice. Finish is spice and malt that lays heavy on the palate. I just do not like sweet beers.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2005
Orange hazy body with a medium sized head on top. Aroma is grassy sweetness, lemon, orange and star fruit all mixed together. Flavor is a great balance of sweetness, bitterness and a full body as well. It starts off with an initial buzz of bitterness, then a bit of malt in the finish, leaving a good warming balanced flavor on the mouth.

Very smooth beverage. Copper in color with smooth tan head. Smell has scents of citrus and spice. A very nice beer, with great flavor throughout.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2005
Pours a cloudy orange/brown body with a huge pillow-like head. Spicy and sweet aroma with carmel, yeast, and a little alcohol. Flavor starts of with a sour lemony/ grapefruit taste followed up with a nice smooth malt finish with hints of spices and yeast also present in the finish.
