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.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 26, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2005 Bottle. Pours a highly carbonated hazy orange with a thick, lacy head. Aroma of that of olives and maybe a touch of cinnamon and cloves. Taste was overly vegetably and flowery (not that Ive ever eaten a flower).

GuilTTy (733) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2005
Hazy cherry wood with orange highlites pour supporting a thick light khaki head and a ton of lacing. Aroma of fresh baked biscuits, spice and malt. Fruity, floral flavors (More than expected) along with sweet malt and brown sugar. Smooth long finish with a nutty flourish. Tastes better and more complex as it warms.

Tejas (1005) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2005
750ml. Kind of surprised at the 85 rating. I really thought this one would be higher. Bright orange appearance. Citrusy apple but not too yeasty aroma. Extremely smooth and drinkable. Id happily drink this one again. Biggest negative is the quickly dying head.

Ungstrup (36537) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2005
An unclear dark orange beer with no head. The aroma is primarily yeaste, but also contains notes of malt and oranges, while the flavor primarily is sweet with notes of yeast.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - MAY 13, 2005
750ml bottle. Served at 46.5 in my NB worthy glass. Pours reddish orange with a white head. The aroma is yeasty, with some fruit notes. The beer is very fizzy in the mouth, giving it a big mouthfeel. The taste is yeasty and spicy, with some hops flavor and mild fruitiness. There is a bit of bitterness. The alcohol is noticeable, but only slightly. This is a fine beer, but not as complex as some of the other Ommegang brews.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Pours a hazy golden brown with a thin light tan head. Not much lace, head dissipates quickly. Smell is sweet malt and alcohol. Spicy and fruity too. Taste is sweet malt and spicy up front. Definitely taste some cloves in there. Some fruitiness, like spiced apples way back there in the flavor profile. After that it finishes with quite the strong alcohol finish. Mouth is kind of sticky with a bit of alcohol burn. Nice sipping beer. Probably couldve left this one on the cellar for a few more months to let the flavors mellow a bit but stil pretty damn good.

Boutip (6214) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 9, 2005
Bottle: Poured a hazy amber color ale with a huge white foamy head with excellent retention. Aroma of floral malt, sweet hops with some subtle spices and a touch of Belgian-type yeast. Taste is a nice mix between some floral sweet malt and discreet yeast with some spices. Body is just above average but carbonation is a bit low for a Belgian Ale.

Juelze (1146) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 7, 2005
Bottle. Pours a dark hazy amber-brown. Smells of caramel and fruit. Tastes of apricot, honey, and caramel apple. Tart in taste, not very smooth IMO.

BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 26, 2005
Excellent Belgian clone from that great analog brewery in upstate New York (part of the "Duvel Family" and thus not totally independent of its creative roots). Their Web site says this is an amber ale. It seems very similar to the blonde style, showing traditional champagne-like carbonation, long-lasting head and orange-amber color. Clove-dominated spicy aroma. Flavor is an excellent mix of yeast, malt and fruitiness, with elements of banana-toffee, dark cocoa and pears. Quite hoppy finish. May not be as complex as the best native versions but for $5 a bottle this is a great midweek artisan.

Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - APR 21, 2005
A superior Belgian. Blended flavors of orange, cloves, and hops make for a easy to enjoy great beer. Pour and let sit for a few moments for the flavor to collect. Then savor to your hearts desire.
