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.

Not quite awful. It looked beautiful, with a big foamy head and tiny rising bubbles. The mouthfeel was excellent. The only aromas I smelled were bitter hops. The taste was bizarre. No front-of-the-tongue flavors whatsoever. Might as well have been water. An annoying, aspirin-like, uncommon bitterness. Almost like cardamom??? Even a little sour, like a lambic. I like Ommegang but I have no idea what the hell this beer was. Certainly not your typical "Belgian Ale."

Brewery Ommegang is one of the top 3 American brewers of Belgain style ales and Rare Vos certainly helps maintain this opinion. Pours a copper/amber color with a sizeable head. Sweet, fruity, and floral nose. Malt, fruit, and some spice in the taste. Well balanced and finishes surprisingly dry. Very drinkable.

Pineapple and leather in aroma, some orange. Big head, faded slowly but never disappeared. Cloudy orange/brown color. Very fruity and spicy. I rather liked this. Will buy again!

I think/hope I got a baed bottle of this. It was incredibly skunky. They way I remember Grolsch tasting in my high school days. Will try again at a later date and re-rate.

poured amber-brownish with a good sized head, malty with some spiciness. I much prefer tha other ommegang. Beer was good but not anything to get real excited about

An above average beer, for sure. Beautiful, thick white head. Very fruity and spicy...reminds me of fall and spiced apple cider. Opaque orange ale color. I think this would be very good with pork owing to the omnipresent apple flavors. A bit acetic for my taste, though.

re-rate: 11/28/02 - well, iíve just scrapped my original rating of this - you donít even want to know. (had rated this 1.8). Color was a deep red/brown with fizzy bubbly head and decent lacing. Flavors were thinly malty (caramel) and some citrus spiceyness.
