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.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2004 Bready yeast notes and juicy, fruit nobles in the aroma. Fairly esters anf flowery with a dry finish. Quite perfumey and doughy pale malty as well. Nice.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2003 shy golden apple color which would not let me see through, pop-out gigantic blizzard of a fricken head.. spicy aroma with orange peel and slight alcohol...onslaught of carbination...floral creaminess with spicy overtones, citrus, blanched anise seeds, cloves, and a hint of dried appricots...very dry finish with some carmel malt flickerings...endless gassy burps

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - NOV 8, 2002
Somewhat spicy aroma, pours a copper color with a large white head. Very crisp and dry in the finish, medium body with spices and malts evident in the flavor. Good, but the regular Ommegang is a much bolder concoction.

Not nearly as good as Ommegang. Pours quite murky, likea watered down apple cider. Meadium head the disapates rather quickley. Smells dry and spicey but is a little bland and chalky tasting.

Nuffield (3635) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 31, 2002
Pours with a lovely head, pillowy and creamy over a hazy deep golden brown. Aroma is gentle, fruity, betraying only a portion of its flavors. Fruity and tangy sweet, with a bit of bubblegum and orchard fruits. It keeps a very nice palate throughout.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 17, 2002
12oz. bottle. Murky amber. Tiny bubbled, sticky off white foam. Soft carbonation. Aroma of oranges, apricots, marshmallows and pepper. Initially fluffy, cotton candy like, with a heavy dose of apricots and oranges and a mild grains of paradise edge. Medium body. Light and easy natured. Not very deeply malted or heavily hopped, kind of just lulls you with a gentle flavor. Watery texture as it reaches mid bottle. Drier than it is sweet with a chalky like fruity sweetness. Floral hops emerge after it’s warmed towards the end. Finishes clean and with a more rounded malt base, with a topping of orange coated caramel. Good, but not as stellar as once remembered. Flavors mute substantially with age.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2002
I think I like this one best out of all the Ommegang products, because the lower ABV means their trademark hot taste is much less pronounced. And this is the last time you will ever see me praise a beer for low ABV.

JoeM500 (1902) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - SEP 30, 2002
Spicy and perfumy nose. Smooth sweet taste that gets spicier as it warms. It had a wheaty finish and the spices lingered. Perfect carbonation level in this bottle,too.

Thick head atop this copper colored ale. Spicy flavor with tastes of pear and green apple. An interesting but not surprising Belgian ale.

Belgian style ale. Dark golden color, large head. Smooth malty flavor, nearly fruity. Some hoppyness, nice malt flavors. Finish is smooth. Aftertaste is smooth and malty, no bitterness. No harsh alcohol taste (6.5%). Very good beer.
