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.

(bottle conditioned). Reddish amber with fluffy head. Fruity aroma with thick caramel and ripe plum. Medium-bodied mouthfeel made fuller by the dense, creamy carbonation. Rich caramelly malt balances with sour tart cherry, peach, plum, black pepper and very subdued mustiness. Bitterness perfectly balances the rich fruit & malt leaving both to linger. Exquisite.

Cloudy red/amber body, chunky white head, fine bubble rising to the top. Light aroma of peaches and bubblegum. Flavor of orange and peach. Smooth, dry finish.

Lots of fruit, orange and clove. Not too sweet so it is very refreshing. Nice pillowy heag and golden amber color.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2007 Bottled version tasted: Descent Belgium-style. Pours with a nice creamy head and amber color. Smooth taste, but expect more complexity based on past ratings of this beer.

Not the greatest Belgian ale, but this is a well-made beer nonetheless and pleasure to drink because don't have to have your thinking cap on to enjoy it.

Oh, if only this was as well crafted as the regular Ommegang. :-( Alas, there's nothing special here. A little sweet, decent belgian ale, but it seems to lack the personality and character I found in Ommegang.

fruits in the nose like peaches, grapes with some malt scents as well. Nice balance of fruit and malt in the flavor.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - SEP 18, 2003
Slightly cloudy light brown color,small fast fading head that left a bit of lacing behind.froma dsitance i can smell bubble gum,but up close its malty,caramel and dried fruit.The taste being malty upfront,light caramel and a slight fruit hint with the after taste being mostly caramel and something else that is hard to describe but isn't bad.This is a pretty decent brew,not as good as the 3 Phil's but decent enough to want another and maybe a few more then that.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - SEP 18, 2003
Fruity, mild aroma. Dark yellow apearance. No noticable alcohol. Good belgian malty flavor. A good Belgian session beer.

Pours a hazy medium amber with white head. Yeasty nose with some wheat, and hints a raisin. Nice floral flavors, feels bubbly going down. Very nice.
