Rare Vos is Flemish 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.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2006 They sell ommegang beers in the grocery stores in my area, so I consider myself pretty lucky. All of their brews are good. This particular brew is very fruity, with a modest alcohol burn, nice stuff.

Not as dominating flavor as Id imagine, pretty mellow, smooth, nice color. Alcohol was well hidden. Sweet, citrus flavor, would drink again, but give me ommegang over thisanytime

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2007 Hazy reddish, moderate head with good lacing and retention. Aroma lacks charatcter but has some strong yeast notes. Sweetish and bland.

blankboy (7634) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 19, 2005
Bottle at Le Select Bistro. Pours a light copper with a very small white head. Body has lots of sediment and a nice amount of carbonation. Aroma of sweet malts, spice, citrus and yeast. Taste is smooth and interesting: yeasty, spicy and fruity. Very nice beer.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 17, 2005
Burnt orange with a decent head that floats nicely atop. Sweet malty aroma. Ok belgian style spun sugar sweetness, but somewhat muted. Ommegang of all american forays into the Belgian style recreates it the most faithfully, but that isnt always a good thing. There are some uneventful Belgians and this rare Vos while better than decent is uneventfull.

Cloudy yellow, white head, slightly grassy sweet smell. Taste is minimal, light citrus with a hint of caraway seed.

After smelling it and looking at it, the actual beer was kind of a let down. Nice fruity aroma, mostly citrus. Has a lot of haze in it, and the head was enormous. Again, the flavor was a letdown, not because it was bad, but because it didnt live up to the amazing first parts.

Great looking beer. Copper orange, hazy, with a big head. Notes of orange, spice, and some barn yard smells. Fairly uneventful drink. The orange/citrus and spice hit again, but nothing that is worth talking about. Very drying. Wish Id picked the Hennepin.

750 ml corked and caged. Hazy orange-coloured beer with a massive rocky white head. Spicy, yeasty aroma, some bubble gum esters. Leathery and sweaty with a bit of woody cologne-like aromas as well. As it warms, an extra touch of plummy fruit comes out. Flavour is quite dry, spicy with faint wheaty flavours as well. Some orange and a bit of plum. I didnt get any real sweet malty aromas that others have referred to. Nice refreshing brew.
