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.

a wonderful boquet for an aroma. very clean and grassy. An excellent beer. Enjoyed this with Zach on my porch the last night I was in Michigan. Ahhhhh, I just want to drink again.

This is a reddish ale with a huge blond head. The flavor is fruity, with a strong malty sweetness (rather too much sweetness for my taste). Itís a well-made ale, but not really one that appeals to me.

Amber haze w/ big large head & remarkable lacing. Strong, spicy, fruity nose. Light mouthfeel, perhaps a bit thin. Fruit flavours (raisins, plums). Peppery w/ hints of nuts & dry, yeasty finish.

Hugerat (452) - somerville, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 20, 2002
Pretty darn good beer. Floral, citrusy aroma, retains head moderately well with a cloudy amber color. Flavor is also of citrus, slightly sour, very nice. It should get extra points too for costing only $3.99 for a .75l bottle.

I enjoyed this one with an Arturo Fuente cigar, flowery aroma and light crisp flowery flavor makes this one something I could drink all day, plus it was incredibly cheap for an area rarity, $4.99 a 750 ml

softale (188) - Michigan, USA - AUG 15, 2002
This beer looks terrific, too bad it didnít quite live up to itís promise. It has a very nice cloudy copper orange color and a huge pillowy head. Nose is fruity, spicy and floral with a bit of "horse-blanket" to note as well. Taste is where this beer disappoints a bit. Itís balance is definitely towards the bitter side. The first bottle I had, I just thought I didnít let it "warm" long enough, but this one sat out for a good half-hour before I gave it a try and the bite was still very prevalent.

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - AUG 2, 2002
Huge frothy white head, brownish orange body. Smells strongly of yeast, like doughy bread. Pleasant flavor--moderately sweet with touches of black pepper and nutmeg. Finishes with a light hoppy bitterness.

Good Flavor with a hint of spice and citrus (orange?). Nice appearance and welcoming aroma.

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.
