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.

Golden amber color with a big, rocky head and a yeasty nose. Dark sweet flavors of plum, raisen and brown sugar. Very well balanced and very easy drinking.

Kind of cloudy, ice tea color, flowery clove scent, nice everlasting head. ("good tasting, long lasting head is better than big head" as a friend mentioned when we poured) Floral, citrus taste, very very nice. Smooth finish.

Very Smooth and clean. Appears to be very cloudy, light orange color. It has a spicyness to it, as well as a caramel flavor.

Good "American Belgian" beer. Fruity and malty but the spicyness was not dominate.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2003
Clean tasting & smooth - almost too smooth for a Belgain. Yeasty cloudiness & very foamy - almost looked like orange juice to me! Dunno - it just didn't really jump out at me with anything distinctive. Moderate spicyness makes it good, just not as good as expected.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 28, 2003
Pours a cloudy hazy golden-amber color, huge tightly bubbled clingy head that leaves long lasting lace in my glass. Flowery, spicy clean citrus aromas. Fruity and sweet spicy flavors, medium-full body, very lively carbonation, finish dry and crisp, very refreshing and tasty.

Light yellow orange, full bodied head. Nice yeasty aroma, wonderful malt balance for the dry spicy finish. Well done.

Darkover (1534) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 25, 2003
Cloudy/bubbly and orange/amber color, big creamy white head. Aroam of yeast and resinous hops. Sweet citrus flavor with some wheat in the background. Dry finish.

GermanBrews76 (680) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2003
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.
