COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rare Vos is Flemish 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.

I love this beer. I think of it as a Belgian Amber. Yeast profile is spot on for a Belgian and it has an underlying malt sweetness you rarely see. Slightly fruity as well. I can drink this all day.

De couleur orange, avec une belle tête blanche qui vient couvrir le liquide avec une bonne rétention. Arôme de banane, d’orange, caramel malté et d’épices un peu floral. En bouche, le zest d’orange, pomme, poivre et autres fruits doux. Le tout dans une ensemble complexe et bien équilibré! Miam

On tap at the Ginger Man. Unassuming appearance, toffee nose, leads into gooey caramel and toffee taste with hints of Belgian yeast. Finishes fast, but this ones all about the flavor. Sly, indeed.

Davros (2746) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 28, 2016
Pours amber with a large lasting head. Nose shows brown sugar, caramel, spicy phenols, soft herbal hop notes. Flavours include caramel, bready notes, spicy Belgian yeast. Carbonation is crazy high.

Berard (620) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 19, 2016
Draft. Pours murky burnt orange with frothy white head that lingers. Sweet spicy aroma that gives away its wheat roots. Heavy carbonation. It's a wheat beer - a style I have no interest in. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle to a pint. Pale orange Amber hue with white head. Sweet fruity notes with a healthy dose of Belgian yeast. Some delicates spice on the finish... Very nice.

Pours a rusty dirty brown color with a beige head. Nose is sweet caramel and toffee! Taste is sweet caramel and toffee, with a good bit of sweet malt. Finishes on the same sweet tasting notes, abruptly and dryly ! Quaff Score 6 / 10

Bomber. Pours an amber orange with an off white head and aroma of yeast and malt. Taste is of malts, yeast, spices, and fruity notes into the spicy, malty finish.

matty (350) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Pours a very hazy amber/orange color with an off-white thick pillow head. Aroma is of sourness, yeast, some fruit and spiciness. Medium body, lots of carbonation on the tongue. Taste has yeast, fruit, malt and sweetness - very interesting. Finish is slightly sour and just a touch dry. Excellent!

Ommegang never ceases to amaze. Rare Vos pours a beautiful orange-gold and tastes like every other amber ale should taste. It’s not a beer that you’ll shed a tear over, but it stands as what should be the beer all other beers model themselves after.
