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.

Sammy (11942) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2004
Abundant head. Worth buying the correct mug. Tasted like a good Belgian only fresher and more refeshing than typical. Cinammon, and other spices. Hoppy and slightly sweet. Creamy mouth feel and must be sipped

A tasty smooth beer with some spice. This is a good belgian, but i have certainly had better. If you are in the mood for an enjoyable belgian, then go for it.

Ommegang makes very few bad beers. This is no exception. I've had better Belgian's, but this one is great for the price. A good beer.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - APR 24, 2004
Orange amber color, medium white head. Spice aroma, hops, slightly citric. Flavor is a bit of a mix of American pale and Belgian, peppery malt flavor, smooth, medium body, dry finish.

TChrome (1461) - Bedford, Texas, USA - APR 20, 2004
Beer pours cloudy reddish brown color with a medium sized off white head that is mostly diminishing. Aroma is like unto many Flemish sour ales, wet wood aroma with some light cherry aroma and a little vinegar. Flavor is initially sweetly malty, but this quickly gives was to some very significant dryness. The finish kicks in with wet wood and a dash of vinegar. Nice.

I didn't think I'd like this one, but was pleasantly surprised. Aroma is mostly fruit, but with a kinda brandy tone to it. Fruit mixes nicely with the malt and spice in the flavor. Pours like a stout. Flavor got better as it warmed. Well done.

A nice medium amber Belgian-style with some sweet yeast in the nose. The taste is also pleasantly sweet with fruit and spice.

Bottled. Compares favorably to a Duvel or Flemish style ale. Pours white, puffy head that thins quickly, leaving nice rings of lace, even in my plastic cup. Color is like a pilsner with a touch more haze. I taste a fine, toasted caramel sweetness, with pleasant nose of coriander, grains of paradise(?), a bit of Curacao orange. Comes in with a slight banana note at the finish. I wish I could've keep this to cellar, but I went a little crazy at the store where I bought this, near our motel. Ended up buying 13 bottles of various micros, and had to trim down to fit in my luggage.

750 ml bottle. Pours clear, rosey amber (until the bottom of the bottle when the yeast is stirred up) with a full, slightly foamy off-white head. Aroma is definitely belgian, with lots of fruity, yeasty notes and a little sourness present as well. Flavor is rich and complex - sweet and bready with a sourdough hoppy finish. Medium body and creamy carbonation make this one a pleasure to drink.
