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.

Huge fruity, citrusy hoppy aroma. Nice golden color, creamy head. Huge flavor as well - elements of fruity, flowery hops, pine - very clean with a refreshing bitter finish. Almost too much in your face with flavor - but still great beer.

Attractive beer with nice head and great creamy mouthfeel and crisp flavor. My only real issue is with the aroma, it bears little resemblance to the beer itself, and is rather unpleasant. Very drinkable and paired extremely well with cheese.

This is the best from Ommegang. Bitter, but not too harsh. Hard to find, even near the brewery.

I’d say this was the weakest of the three Ommegang’s you can get regularly out here. It has less malt presence, less acute spiciness, more room for the hops to show through, than Ommegang or Hennepin. So I’m rating in comparison, really, and this one just seems to be missing something. Still, it’s a decent brew, citrusy and refreshing.

Amber coloured. Yeasty, crispy, malty, dry, balanced. Nice bitterness.

aroma is full of apples and pears. medium amber color that resembles apple juice. head persists as a fine bead of bubbles, with decent carbonation. hops dominate the profile, providing an acidic and slightly dry finish. rather unbalanced, it does need more malt. however, aging may smooth out some of its harsh acidity.

A delicious beer. It has a hazy medium brown color w/ a crisp taste on the palate. It was very enjoyable.

Oakes (12627) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2002
Light amber haziness; aroma of peaches, pears, yeast, allspice, vienna malts; palate shows pepper, pears, balanced nuances of vienna malt and herbal hop.

Typical Belgian ale malty yeasty aroma. Malty, spicy flavor with a sour acidity. Simimlar to Chimay white. This stuff is delicious.

Another great beer from my favorite Brewery. Wine like taste to it. Strong beer. I am going to visit this place this summer. Added: If you didn’t like this the first time try it again. sometimes you get one that is just way to carbinated.
