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.

beautiful hazy copper color. A nice thick creamy off white head. A boat load of bubbles. Nose cusisted of alcohol, light yeastiness, subduedfloral and citrus notes as well. Relatively tame. NOt bad, but nothing exceptional. Could use a more prevalent malting for the sake of balance.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JAN 19, 2003
This sort of reminds me of an abbey 6. Quite a bit of pear flavors and aroma, a bit of sourness and some spice. Dry, long finish. Good, but a bit more sour than I'd like. Filmy head lasts.

Nothing really all that exciting about this brew, but it a very nice Belgain-style ale, it has a very hazy & cloudy appearance, the beer has an orangish tinit to it’s amber color, excellent soft & lacy white head that lasts throughout the bottle, the nose is quite fruity with a yeasty-spicy undertone, the beer is quite balanced & smooth & very drinkable, the flavors include lots of fruitiness & some spiciness due to some of the yeast left in the bottle, the beer has a medium-to-full body & is an excellent session beer

jefyou (39) - Menlo Park, California, USA - JAN 6, 2003
Nice aroma with spicy fruit combination. Rich amber color. Agree that it seems watered down and has less ooomph than other Ommegangs. BIG head with good lacing. Ok but not worth the price.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 5, 2003
I was disappointed because the flavor is way watered down when compared to the aroma. Nice spice and a lot of sweetness, even a little bit of something, but fails to satisfy.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - JAN 4, 2003
Hazy amber color, not much head. Rich aroma of malt, apples, and raisins. Flavor doesn’t live up to the aroma, kind of watered down maltiness.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2003
Golden color, big head, very spicy nose and taste. I don’t like the spice too much, can’t exactly tell what it is.
