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.

Copper colored, medium off-white head comprised of tiny bubbles that is mostly diminishing. Sugary, cotton candy aroma with gingerbread, toffee, and a touch of alcohol intermixed. Highly carbonated with a thick, velvety mouthfeel. Ripened fruit dominates the flavor. I had a difficult time distinguishing other flavors in this due to the high carbonation that never seemed to die down.

Pretty peach/gold color with abundant bubbling producing a HUGE head. Feels like a champagne in the mouth, tastes like beer and cider. Lots of fruit, spices and bitter malt in the nose, flavor and aftertaste. A very interesting brew, great for a single sampling.

Originally, not ver interesting, too cold, high carbonation. After warming up, nicely malty, smooth, caramel flavor, good light hoppy bitterness. Good but not great.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2003 Re-rate: It has been a while since I had this, and I am still impressed! Lovely appearance, medium reddish copper color. Nice, fruity-bready aroma. Flavor is remarkably smooth and refreshing. Slightly tart, fruity, well balanced malts and spice. Could become a regular with me now.

Carmel colored with a sweet and hoppy aroma, it's got a tangy, fruity, hoppy, happy flavor to it. It's not a 'Great Beer' but it's enjoyable.

I was dissapointed in this beer. I went into in with high hopes due to the great experieince with the brewers Ommegang beer. This beer was dissapointing.

Silphium (3160) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 18, 2003
Pours a cloudy amber, with lively carbonation and a cream-colored head. Fruit and spicy yeast aroma. Flavor is first and foremost dry, with vinous and fruity characteristics, spiciness, and a bit of apple cider. Tasty.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUL 11, 2003
This was so incredibly tastey. Beautifully reddish - amber coloring with a nice frothy head, that stayed with it the entire session. Zesty and complex, with hints of pear and grapefruit with banana and fig thrown in for good measure. I loved this one, nicely bittersweet in the finish and I cannot wait to try it again.

Copper colored with big white head. Spicy and fruity aroma. Bitter finish. A nice beer.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 10, 2003
Slight orange haze with fierce rocky white head and excellent lacing. Large bubbles ascend from the bottom of the glass. Aroma is sweet and spicy, banana, clove, alcohol. Musky taste with strong alcohol and fruity, pear I think. Acidic on the palate but I believe a little maturing could balance this out. Also a tad salty.
