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.

r464 (2013) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2004
Copper in color with a small white head. Fruity aroma that is distintly Belgian. A fruitiness with spice, like orange peel. Dry with a crisp finish.

Pretty, foamy white head that faded to a thin vail that cloaked the brew for the whole time it was in the snifter. fruity aromas. Rich flavors that are very familiar. Slightly spicy, too. Drys out on the finish. Like everything else from Ommegang, it's pretty damn good.

DCopperfields (146) - New York, USA - JAN 30, 2004
Pours a hazy, orange amber with a tannish head comprised of a density of tiny bubbles. Aroma is perfumy, hints of caramel and molasses are salient, and plums soaked in alcohol are prevalent in the nose. Very little carbonation, creating a smooth, creamy mouthfeel which is at once tart and bitingly sweet. Alcohol is there, but subdued. A wonderful beer.

DYCSoccer17 (3459) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 29, 2004
Pours a mild to moderate cloudy orange color. 1.5cm white head. Aroma is sour and yeastly. Start has some cloves and citrus. Hoppy then malty banana/yeast bitter to finish. Nicely carbonated, but not as smooth as it could be.

BBB63 (6393) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JAN 25, 2004
Hazy copper hue with large creamy white head and excellent lace. The aroma hints of current, cherry, orange, toasted caramel malt, floral hops, dusty and earthy yeast esters. The taste opens with the same fruity nature detected on the nose with a supporting dusty yeast culture. Some spices (corrander and cardamom) and light bitterness undertones. The finish is short and dry, tart fruits and hit of wood. The mouthfeel is lively and very chalky dry, feels like someone stuck a cottonball in my mouth. Not coy or candi sweet like many Belgian strongs, more towards the everyday basic style. Refreshing and enjoyable, recommended.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JAN 25, 2004
Amber colored beer with great carbonation and head. This is my favorite Ommegang beer. It's just sour enough to bring out the fruit without an overabundance of sweetness. Really great stuff

Kinz (3459) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2010 Beautiful orange, creamy head, a pretty, pretty beer. Aroma is spicey and yeasty. Herbal flavors dance over a decent malt backbone, with a punch of bitterness on the finish. Some faint hints of orange fruitiness as well. Coriander, but this sure isn’t a wit. Good stuff, a bit of a bite on the palate detracts from a very good beer. RERATE: 3/21/2010 - sampled again, this time out of the 12 oz. bottle as part of BJCP training session. Score stays the same. Coriander note still there, but not as strong as I recalled, making me think there might not be any actual coriander here. Hops far more pronounced now, with a lingering bitterness.

Lovely, creamy, lacy head; beautiful banana-fruity bubblegum aroma; the head is quickly diminishing; tastes very much like it smells, but a little tart, dry, spicy. Very good, but not great. Ommegang still brews best Belgian styles in the U.S. that I've had, though........
