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.

Mmmmm. Delicious malts with a nice spicy character. Aroma has fruit for sure with a bit of dough. Nice cloudy amber color. I drank this so fast and wanted more. That’s what I get for drinking stouts and porters for the last few months and ignoring my favorite style.

jsporrer (92) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 3, 2015
Pours a cloudy medium amber color with a 1/4 inch off white head. Nice mild aroma. Faint smell of spices. Not too strong but noticeable. Has a slight tingle of carbonation without being fizzy. A strong clove flavor that is pleasant and isn’t overpowering. No harsh aftertaste. Not bad but could have had a little more variety in the flavor.

Appearance: pours with a large beige head, the beer is hazy and a slightly darker gold color with some amber tendencies Aroma: lemon, spicy, reminds me of a saison, Taste: lemon, slight sweetness, has a very faint bitter finish Palate: lively carbonation, minimal bitter aftertaste, medium mouthfeel Overall: a very Belgian feeling beer, has the yeast that really hides the normal amber flavors, decent ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BierMeHoos (352) - Maryland, USA - AUG 3, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. Appearance is opaque orange gold with a fluffy off white head. Aroma is very fruity with spicy notes. Taste is balanced with a slight tilt toward the sweet side and orange notes. Palate is smooth and light. Very good beer, a beauty.

Foxbush (1505) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 21, 2015
Draft at the Urban Tavern The ale poured a slightly hazy amber with a thick off white head and lacing. This is good looking beer. The strange aroma of cloves and toffee greet you. There is a sweet malty spiciness and the taste cloves continues to the end. The medium body ale had average carbonation. The beer improved the more I drank.

Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours amber with a thick off-white head and a toffee and fruit aroma. There is a slightly bitter pale malt flavor with a spiced finish and a hint of Belgian yeast esters. Very drinkable and refreshing.

Beachmaster (253) - 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 (469) - 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 didn’t care for the intense floral / potpourri parts.

ScipioA (394) - 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.
