COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

The most ’Chimay like’ out of all of their offerings. Same signature aroma and taste at half the cost with slightly less alcohol. Chimay did a wonderful job of transporting their offering over to their US brewery with Duvel. Available at Downtown Wine & Spirits in Somerville, MA

UPDATED: APR 10, 2006 very nice belgian style Very good flavor, which tastes like a blend of fruits. A great blend of carbonation, and flavor. On the expensive side, but worth the dough.

Pour is a copper with a big white head. Aroma is a coriander and clove. Flavor is deffinatly fruity and spicy. Flavor is a bit of a let down but it is still tasty and a ok attempt at the style. No rating for the amount you pay for a beer but this is deffinatly worth it as it only cost me $3.99 for a bomber.

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.

Saarlander (1920) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2005
Not as dominating flavor as I’d imagine, pretty mellow, smooth, nice color. Alcohol was well hidden. Sweet, citrus flavor, would drink again, but give me ommegang over thisanytime

ABUSEDGOAT (2901) - California, USA - JUN 20, 2005
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 (7865) - 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 isn’t 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.
