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.

Melon-like aromas, cloudy orange color, huge tan head. Full mouthed bread-like malt body witha orange and apricot notes. Tangy finish. Fat body and really sophisticated.

YogiBeera (2570) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 23, 2003
Nice orange, grape and pepper aroma. Wonderful big frothy head, leaving brussels laces on the glass. Liveley carbonation. Nice bitter grape taste, kind of pepperz too but still smooth with an medium aftertaste. Well balanced / Great

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2008 Poured a red orange color with a small, quickly diminishing head and not much lacing. Orange, hop, coriander aroma. Sweet, caramel, malt, spice taste. Average mouthfeel.

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2003
Define "Artisanal Strong Pale Ale." Sierra Nevada Pale Ale this ain't. Well, combine that with a Triple and you're there with this beer.. Pours a cloudy honey color with a very thick head that hangs around for a while. No lace. Smells very fruity. I'm thinking bananas and lemons with a hint of hops. Tastes even more like bananas with a strong citrus aftertaste that's quite pleasant. Mouthfeel is foamy but not very thick. Drinkability is pretty good, but I wouldn't want too many of these in a row without something to eat in between.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 13, 2003
Bottle pours a hazy orange amber with minimal head and some surface lace. the aroma is yeasty and fruity. The flavor is starts out sort of dry, then picks up a very fruity quality in the long finish. The palate is not very rich. Overall, this is OK, but not very special.

rogueman (19) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 11, 2003
Definite yeast aroma. Thick white head, fruity and spice are tastes that hit the palate. good lace. Not bad, but not a champion either. I am from cooperstown originally, and went on a brewery tour when Ommegang first opened. I like Ommegang, but Rare Vos could be better. Lacks complexity and body.

TogBean (47) - Belchertown, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 4, 2003
Wow, what can I say but, YUCKERS! Pale amber with a head so thin it was translucent. Aroma was mostly hop with a trace of Strawberry Shortcake and yes I mean the doll. Flavor? Strawberry/cherry, malt, bitter, water, nothin'. The Ommegang folks should have tried this one before they shipped it out.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - DEC 4, 2003
Very cloudy amber/brown with a large off white head. Aroma of fruit - banana, peach, orange, apple - and caramel, with a hint of spice. Light medium body with a decent amount of carbonation. Flavor starts very sweet with a caramel rush, and then the fruit flavors kick in. Orange, peach, banana, and apple are present. It then fades into fruit and spices - cloves, pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg. A good beer, but the flavors do not blend as well as they could. A little underwhelming.

ericnixon (745) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 27, 2003
light amber color with a huge head. i really liked Ommegang, but this one was horribly lacking. a fellow Ratebeerian i shared this with went so far as to dump out his glass. Weak and watery flavored with a distasteful blend of fruitiness and spices.
