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.

Persistent off-white 3" foamy head w good lacing. Liquid is a clean and even hazy amber. Delicate aroma is fruity yeast-centered. Taste is modest bitter balancing the very mild malt tones, characteristic belgian-style yeast always noticeable in background. Smooth body finishes clean. Very drinkable but not boring session beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a light amber color with an orange hue. Aroma is of melon fruits mixed with malt. Taste is clean, easy drinking, with a hint of peaches and apricots in the finish. I miss any spiciness, but enjoY the mellow complex flavor.

Large bottle. A stunning beauty visually. A copper/amber color with a quickly dissipating head. Smell is slightly funky and tart. Some spice overtures. Taste has a good deal of malt characteristics with the kind of sour Belgian punch. Tart and spicy throughout. I want the flavor to stick around longer. Finish just a little underwhelming. A good representation of a Belgian style but my expectations may have been too high.

I can drink this year round. A treat to find at any bar or restaurant. I am usually looking for a new beer that I have never tasted. But when I find Rare Vos, I take it.

Amber Hefeweizen? Maybe. Amber in color and malt flavor with hefeweizen yeast and the flavors of orange peel, grains of paradise and coriander. Pours a nice amber with a thick white head. Wondering why I never thought of this beer before.

Pours golden orange, slightly hazy with a frothy head that dissapeted quickly. Smells pleasantly fruity. Tastes slightly sweet with some spiciness from the yeast and CO2 bite. Very nice beer.

On draft. Pours a clear amber with a thick white head. Smells of tropical fruit and sweet malt. Full, medium mouthfeel. Tastes of Belgian yeast and caramel and toffee. Amazing beer.

Bottle - hazy amber with large white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, floral hops, tropical fruit, candy. Fruity malty, spicey taste, quite highly carbonated, foamy mouthfeel. Not bad at all.
