COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rare Vos is flemmish for "Sly Fox," and the name of one of Brusselsí 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.

Far and away my favorite ommegang product, mostly for not being as rich as the others. The lighter alcohol of this beer is also nice as to avoid those wonderful belgian beer stupids.

Fits perfectly into a Chimay glass in a single pour. Nice creamy head, cloudy amber. Holy shit, the smell!! Extremely red wine-like, alcohol, floral, fruitiness: orange, pear, cherry. Unfortunately it went a bit downhill from there for me. The flavor had a too much of the red wine-like presence and it reminded me of the time I went to this wine tasting party with my chick-at-the-time (oh, the dumb things we all do for women) and got totally smashed on red wine and puked it up in the toilet at home. Itís kind of scary to chum red. So then I hit the gym next morning and couldnít balance anything because I was do uncoordinated. Wine hangovers suck. Anyway, back to the beer. It just didnít seem to faithful to the Belgian style, so after a very nice inital impression, I had to mark it down some.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2012 This beer rocks. The commercial description is accurate. This beer finishes crisp, clean and dry. Very good stuff.

One thing to note is that this beer ages extremely well. Bottles with 2 to 3 years of age smooth considerably, offering a seamless balance of malt, yeast, and gentle spiciness. Almost dangerous in itís complexity of flavors and drinkablility. Additionally, properly stored bottles pour brilliantly clear after time.

Not my favorite from Ommegang. The brew has a nice creamy head. The aroma was fainter than expected though one could pick up some fruitiness and herbal essence. A nice clear amber body to the bear with fruity and caramel notes. A good brew.
