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.

Scipio (727) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2013
Pours a hazy, bright golden with a big solid, although rather short lived, white head. Aroma has wheat and a good amount of spice, along with apple and banana. It is quite Belgian. The taste still contains a lot of spices. Lots of fruity impressions as well, I find a good amount of orange and lemon, while still finding apple and banana elements underneath. Aftertaste is orange and lemon. Medium in body, with a bubbly texture. There is a lot fizzy carbonation here, similar to that of champagne. I though this was good, although I wouldn’t call it great.

Bottle opened for a recipe. Great inclusion in a batter, by the way! Lots of head on the pour. Amber/clear pour. Lots of corn/grain notes in the aroma and taste. Fresh hop notes - bitter, spruce finish. Smooth.

Rodriguez (312) - Quito, ECUADOR - JAN 7, 2015
Amber? It is more copper, orange. Fruity, spicy, aroma and flavor, kind of a dark saison. Coriander, orange, grains of paradise, medium body. Delicious beer.

Joel (114) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Pours hazy amber with a large fizzy head that quickly dissipates. Bready aroma, fruity, and honey. Highly carbonated. Tastes bready, earthy, slightly sweet with very mild hops that balances nicely. Some orange, fruity esters, dry and crisp and quenching. No bitterness. Good to style. Nice Belgian ale.

Spab (2608) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2014
750 ml bottle from Niagara Falls Wegmans. Pours a cloudy amber colour with floaties and a larger, dense, lasting eggshell-coloured head. Aroma is Belgian yeast, cherry, a little sweet citrus and spice. Flavour has lots of fruitiness with cherries the most obvious note, some orange zest, a light yeasty funk and a subtle spiciness. Slick mouthfeel. Nice beer.

12 oz bottle pour. Pours a dark cloudy orange color with a big foam head. Very sweet fruit and berry like aroma. A little cherry. A ton of carbonation in this one. Fizzy fruit flavor with a more smooth sweet belgian yeast finish. Interesting beer that lied outside of my expectations. Enjoyed this.

JDW1976 (14) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - DEC 11, 2014
From bottle into a tulip glass. Full, frothy head. Reddish copper appearance. Light and fruity (rose hips?). Reminds me of rooibos tea. Excellent with Indian cuisine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dhatton (73) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - DEC 4, 2014
On tap, cloudy amber body with long-lasting thick white head. Malty caramel aroma with some floral aspects. Earthy doughy taste with a nutty sweetness. Somewhat spicy finish, but generally smooth and well-balanced.

Too much carb and yeast spiciness for my palate. Could be smoother. I’m not a big fan of the really fruity notes in this Belgian.

zizzybalubba (1527) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - NOV 24, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA. Dark orange pour with a frothy nearly white head. Aroma of light citrus, mild Belgian yeast, and hay. Taste offers mostly fruity flavors of orange and lemon zest with doses of spiciness and bread for good measure. A very well done, and for me often overlooked, Belgian-style ale.
