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.

First of all, the bottle with the champagne cork is totally awesome and pirate-worthy. This beer is delicious, you can sip it or chug it. Just the right fruity hoppiness, with a twinge of bitter in the finish, and the maltiness is whelming. Not overwhelming nor underwhelming, just plain great. I could drink a 750 mL bottle of this stuff every day and I probably would if I were a wealthy individual. Sam Adams tells me he makes "Americas World Class Beer." Rare Vos is an irrefutable piece of evidence to the contrary.

Pretty good - but not as good as some of their stronger brews. Its sort of a Belgian - light, but in a good way. It still had the typical fruity aroma and nice foamy white head, but it just didnt quite have it all (know what I mean?)

Color : a perfect orange. Head: massive, fluffy, lacey, creamy. Aroma: amazing! A complex, arousingly and utterly lovely blend of spices and dark fruits, cherries, grapes, melon, peach, and more, with a hint of citrus. Flavor is abundant, but the overall feeling is light and airy. Palate is smooth and dazzling at once. Citrusy hops continue a light dance upon the tastebuds with every sip. Finish is long and delightful. Tasty and yeasty, and light! I could swear I was drinking a cherry and lemon pie.

Pours a bright red color and presents a good head that dies quickly (leaves a thin layer). A clingy lace maintains a presence throughout. The aroma is of malt and caramel – very fresh. Sweet on the uptake with a slightly dry finish that does not have much definition, but maintains a lingering roasted aftertaste. Mouth feel is smooth with some body and effervescence. A decent beer, but not a very memorable one.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2004 The cork came out withh a lot of force and noise. Luckily, it didnt foam out. Pours with a slightly hazy, goregoeous very dark amber. A beautiful beer if I have ever seen one. It is topped with a huge off-white head that reminds of a qualiy Belgian. The aroma is light and has a little bit of banana with some pears and a touch of cinnamon. The taste is relatively light. Has some cherry notes and a little bit of nutmeg type spice. Overall a very subtle, yet reassuring brew. It is obviously a quality product and it shows. This made my Chimay Chalice very happy.

Not very thrilling especially for the price. Orange color with ample head, overflowed my glass like a home brew . Long lasting white. Nice floral and fruity aroma, some of it is present in the palate along with wheat, but this tastes very light. Left with a very dry finish.

Bottle. Golden honey color with a thick foamy head. Nose has some banana and foam. There is not alot going on here. It is very weak and has little body. This is the weakest Belgian I have ever had.

duvel tulip glass: big light tan head, a bit rocky, diminishes into a thick ring around the glass. bubbly brown amber body. bubbly mouthfeel. apple, dry, spicy, bready, and just a little bit of pleasant sourness. i had a hopdevil before this and this reminds me of hopdevil. anyway, i like it.
