Ommegang Rare Vos 355ml
Brewery: Brewery Ommegang (Moortgat)
Style: Belgian Ale
Format: 355ml Bottle
Rare Vos is flemmish for "Sly Fox" and the name of one of Brussel's' great cafes. It pours a light copper hue, contrasting beautifully with a big, creamy white head. The nose offers orange blossoms and slight spice.
On the palate, the caramel maltiness shines strongly but with little sweetness. The profile leans toward dry fruity (yeast-affiliated), slightly fruity/hoppy with a beguiling spiciness. This complex, medium-bodied beer has a smooth mid-palate and moderate dry finish.
Well-balanced in all elements, it's a mild, mellow brew.
