Rare Vos was the 2nd offering from Ommegang that I tried. I found that it was slightly fruity and the spiciness came on later. The nice color and malty aspects made it rather enjoyable.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2014 Pours a dark honey color with a thin white head. Aroma of bubble gum and fruit. Thin mouth feel with a hint of fruit on the tongue. Backend disappears with zero bitterness. Not a bad Belgian ale.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Great rusty gold-orange color, full of life. Smell is a little faint, but I get mild caramel, apricot, brown sugar. Taste is a nice balance between sweetness and malt, a bit of a pleasant lingering aftertaste.

Slightly cloudy, a little too sweet for my taste. Bit of an overwhelming hoppy finish.

It has a beautiful red/ orange amber color with a hazy body. Tiny bubbles form a thick foamy head that has a light tan color. An inviting aroma of sweet floral orange and spices mingle with doughy yeast and malts. On the tongue there is a complex sweet, fruity and spicy character with caramel malts and doughy yeast mixing with dark cherries, spices and orange peel. Hops add some light bitterness and dryness to the finish. The palate is full bodied with just the right amount of carbonation. It is smooth and very drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy amber/copper pour, off white head. Aroma of yeast, spice, and fruit. Slight orangey fruity taste, medium body. Aggressive carbonation seemed to temper a malty base. Slight bitter that was quickly overcome with toasty bread like finish. Could not detect coriander which was fine. Nice brew, unremarkable. Would I drink again? Yes. Would I order again? maybe.

Took a few sips to get a good feel for it. Very smooth and fruity. Not over powering. Loved the lack of an aftertaste

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is a fruity esters with strawberries oranges and pears. Appearance is slightly cloudy not chunked and amber in color with an medium off-white persistent head where style dictates quickly fading head and clear beer. Flavor is slightly fruity with some very subtle hops showing through. This Belgian Amber or pale ale is very balanced per style with a very light toasty malt. Finnish is a little dry but I don't sense much hop. Mouth feel is medium bodied with medium-high carbonation. Carbonation purse style should be moderate so this carbonation is a bit too high.
