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 bright red color and presents a good head that dies quickly (leaves a thin layer). A clingy lace maintains a presence throughout. The aroma is of malt and caramel – very fresh. Sweet on the uptake with a slightly dry finish that does not have much definition, but maintains a lingering roasted aftertaste. Mouth feel is smooth with some body and effervescence. A decent beer, but not a very memorable one.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2004 The cork came out withh a lot of force and noise. Luckily, it didn’t foam out. Pours with a slightly hazy, goregoeous very dark amber. A beautiful beer if I have ever seen one. It is topped with a huge off-white head that reminds of a qualiy Belgian. The aroma is light and has a little bit of banana with some pears and a touch of cinnamon. The taste is relatively light. Has some cherry notes and a little bit of nutmeg type spice. Overall a very subtle, yet reassuring brew. It is obviously a quality product and it shows. This made my Chimay Chalice very happy.

Not very thrilling especially for the price. Orange color with ample head, overflowed my glass like a home brew . Long lasting white. Nice floral and fruity aroma, some of it is present in the palate along with wheat, but this tastes very light. Left with a very dry finish.

Bottle. Golden honey color with a thick foamy head. Nose has some banana and foam. There is not alot going on here. It is very weak and has little body. This is the weakest Belgian I have ever had.

duvel tulip glass: big light tan head, a bit rocky, diminishes into a thick ring around the glass. bubbly brown amber body. bubbly mouthfeel. apple, dry, spicy, bready, and just a little bit of pleasant sourness. i had a hopdevil before this and this reminds me of hopdevil. anyway, i like it.

Slightly hazed bright honey-amber color. Big frothy off-white head. The nose is big and yeasty with bright hints of raisin. Sweet malt is also detectable rounded off with a rather subdued citrus spiciness and various other dark fruits. The body is lightly spritzy with a hint of citrus and underlying yeast - very light. Some fruit in the middle and a very light hint of alcohol. Spiced lightly. Somewhat of a light belgian.

cloudy amber, lots of carbonation on a substantial white head. aroma is candy, spice, sausage, slightly floral. flavor is very malty, nice and sweet. some spiciness offsets the malt, with a very dry finish. almost completely disappears in the aftertaste. another success from ommegang.

Cloudy amber brew with very little carbonation.I like a cloudy beer as I yhink it will have more body.Maybe not always true but still..Okay so the brewer is right that it does have a nice floral fruity aroma,nice maltiness also.Has a pleasant finish in that the fruit flavors hold on.Nice of Bier_Bauch to send this my way.

12 oz bottle. Goldwn yellow with a good size white head. Aroma is interestingly hoppy with a nice base of... Belgianness (slighlty sweet yeasty alcohol?) Palate has a pleasant effervessence to it. Nice hoppy bitterness in the flavour with a delicate touch of spice. Pleasant dry tartness in the finish. Thanks for sharing Ken.
