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.

On tap. Great beer. The lacing on the glass after I drank it was interesting. The taste was an amber through and through. Very easy to drink and wonderful

It’s almost as though a weiss beer had been crossed with a Belgian ale. Not such a powerhouse as Duvel - but it’s very sophisticated and has a great aroma.

This brew poured a large, creamy head, but had little to no lacing on the sides of my mug. It had a fruity aroma to it. It drank extremely smooth which is much to my liking. There was no bitterness observed with this brew. I was very impressed with this particular brew and this is one brew that I would enjoy being able to drink for the evening.

This is one “Sly Fox”. 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. Outstanding!

Emeister84 (985) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Aromas of peaches, oranges, and lemongrass. Translucent amber with orange highlights and an off-white head. Tastes fruity, with juicy stonefruit flavors predominating the palate, while dry, yeasty and hoppy flavors quickly follow. Medium-full bodied and very refreshing with a dry, yeasty, spicey, herbal finish.

today 12/20/2012. I opened a bottle that was bottled 12/2011. I had this beer earlier this year but now its aged to protection: as the bottle says best by 12/12. A: amber with a light head S: lost of fruity notes tangerines, oranges, citrus, with some sweet spices T: has great citrus flavor that is sweet and not so tangy. M: perfectly carbonated and O: originally I gave this beer a 3.5 but now its in the high 4s. Beer has refined itself and also my pallet has probably changed as well. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-21-2012

Very good beer, surprised I hadn’t heard of it before. Light, somewhat fruity taste, complex, not overpowering, goes well with food.
