COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Very nice! Yeast comes out and if you can try to turn this upside down then let it sit for a few more days to dissolve the yeast more! Great heat with light head. Tasty!

12 oz bottle. Hazy burnt orange color with a huge, thick off-white head. Aroma is spicy, crushed oranges, vanilla, cloves, coriander. Oranges, spices, dried apricot, biscuit, just slight hoppy bitterness. Ends quite yeasty and soapy.

Beachmaster (225) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 1, 2015
Bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a golden amber, with a moderate beige head that leaves good lacing. Nose is light roast malt and some Belgian yeast notes. Taste is malty, but not too sweet, with a smooth finish. Pretty good.

tightslice (380) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle at Evernote. Aromas of spicy yeast esters, flowers, perfume, potpourri, some bready bits. Taste is crisp with some chalkiness on the backend. The flavors hit and hold strongly all the way across the finish...although I didnít care for the intense floral / potpourri parts.

Very good! Reminds me of Orval which is not available where I live. Will drink again and add to beers I like to keep on hand. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ScipioA (382) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Draft pour is a murky copper with a billowing tan head. Aromas are all Belgian yeast byproducts, mainly banana but also some general fruit. Flavor is pretty similar, maybe a tad too sweet. Thick mouthfeel. Good, easily obtainable Belgianish beer.

Jabah (197) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 28, 2015
Medium bodied light amber-gold color. Tastes of caramel, yeast, light hops....like the typical Belgian Ale. Being from NY and all, may be a little "Americanized" if that makes any sense. Iíve only had maybe a few REAL Belgianís imported from Europe, so hard to tell the true comparison. A good beer that isnít super-expensive. I would buy again if it was the best thing available to me, or if just in the mood for a Belgian without paying $8-$10 a bottle. Also tried this in the 750ml....might have been slightly better than the 12oz.

Interesting mix. This mix is pretty good with malts and hops to have a well balanced product.

ceason (30) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
Pours a light copper with a very small white head. Aroma of sweet malts, spice, citrus and yeast. Taste is smooth-- yeasty, spicy and fruity. Body has lots of sediment and a nice amount of carbonation.

kdm1984 (806) - Missouri, USA - APR 11, 2015
Wow, this was one of the greatest head appearances Iíve ever seen - super massive, more-than-a-finger length head that stays around for a good bit. Not much lacing, though. Cloudy orange color. Aroma of red fruit, lemon, spice, and yeast. Flavor is red fruit, bread, spice, and lemon tang. Very, very nice blend and balance. Super tasty. Greatly exceeded my expectations! Fantastic beer.

Good color, nice head. Smooth but I don't like the aftertaste. Not my favorite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
