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.

Bottle. Amber beer with a strong but soon disappearing head. The aroma is citrusy and yeasty, and the flavour is spiced, with some roasted burnt bitterness mixed with the Belgian style yeasty and citrus qualities. Overall a good strong Belgian style beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a wonderful beer. Poured into a chalice. Appearance is reddish - orange with a nice fluffy cream head that remains throughout. Aroma is a bouquet of some spice, maybe cloves or coriander, and orange peel or fruit with some slightly malty tones as well. The taste is slightly spicy with a mild yeast and malt flavor. There is definitely some fruit in the taste as well, maybe orange but not overpowering. Very little alcohol in the aroma and taste but the feel is creamy and carbonated. Sweet with a slightly dry finish. Very easy to drink. Makes a great session beer.

Frothmeister (698) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2016
12oz bottle. Pours a murky rose-hued amber with some visible sediment, and an impressive creme coloured head. On the nose, fruity esters of apple, peach, banana with a faint earthy note. Taste-wise, dates, brown sugar, mineral notes that lead into a light iodine taste, raisin, banana, hard water, and some faint citrus. It VERY much makes me think of something from the Unibroue family, and I absolutely mean that as a compliment. Thumbs up.

Fruity and bitter is what I tasted. It was a little to bitter for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AmEricanbrew (6608) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - FEB 22, 2016
Bottle at trailer-- this was the first beer I rated on the Internet - that was 2003, on another website, this is a now rate, right here. Pours hazy amber with ivory foam. Belgian spice, caramel, herbal, house yeast aromas. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Belgian spice, herbal, caramel flavors----tangy finish___not bad.

I love this beer. I think of it as a Belgian Amber. Yeast profile is spot on for a Belgian and it has an underlying malt sweetness you rarely see. Slightly fruity as well. I can drink this all day.

QcBeer (98) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2016
De couleur orange, avec une belle tête blanche qui vient couvrir le liquide avec une bonne rétention. Arôme de banane, d’orange, caramel malté et d’épices un peu floral. En bouche, le zest d’orange, pomme, poivre et autres fruits doux. Le tout dans une ensemble complexe et bien équilibré! Miam

On tap at the Ginger Man. Unassuming appearance, toffee nose, leads into gooey caramel and toffee taste with hints of Belgian yeast. Finishes fast, but this ones all about the flavor. Sly, indeed.

Davros (2611) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 28, 2016
Pours amber with a large lasting head. Nose shows brown sugar, caramel, spicy phenols, soft herbal hop notes. Flavours include caramel, bready notes, spicy Belgian yeast. Carbonation is crazy high.
