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.

Silphium (3167) - 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.

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.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - JUN 23, 2003
Bottle: Reddish gold with a largish white head. Slightly sweet, slightly musty aroma. Mouthful is nice. Flavor is malty and slightly sweet. Not overly complex. A decent beer, but it followed a Rochefort Trappistes 10 in the session, which is almost not fair.

DrinkingbuddyD (129) - Warsaw, New York, USA - JUN 1, 2003
Cloudy light brown color with thick, creamy, whitish head. Aroma was spicy and yeasty. For flavor, initially I noticed a fruity sour apple flavor followed by a spicy doughy flavor. By the end of the drink I noticed a beautiful thick lacing left on the glass. Not bad at all.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 1, 2003
Hazy copper body with a big fluffy white head. Aroma is light and yeasty with a slight sourness to it. Lightly spiced flavor with notes of green apple. A good first experience with Brewery Ommegang.

JorisPPattyn (7910) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 22, 2003
Slight gushing to thick, creamy yellow head. Fine pearling. Hazy dark-amber beer. Sweet nose, caramel or caramel-liqueur. some nuttiness, waft of toilet soap. Heavily carbonated. Hence some acidity, but a walnut-like bitterness keeps on top. Yeasty, with slight fruity notes. malty underbuild (caramalt) is there, but low-profile. Retronasal again liqueurish and an impression of hazelnut-choco-spread (VERY Belgian!). Medium bodied. More abbey-double than Speciale/ale. Slightly spritzy. I had tried this beer before, and it comes out much better this time as before. Somehow the interchanging of the styles turned out beneficial.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 21, 2003
Hazy golden color with lots of carbonation and a well lacing head. Aroma of spicy yeast and earthy hops. Body is somewhat full with a fizzy mouthfeel. Flavors include chocolate chip cookies and spicy Belgian yeast. Not bad for an American Belgian ale, but could use some more complexity.
