Ommegang "Rare Vos"
Brewery Ommegang - Cooperstown, New York USA
Belgian Ale (ABV 6.5%)

[Suggested Glassware: Trappist Glass]

Rating: 3.6/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a hazy dark amber with a large (2-3 finger) off-white creamy head that was mostly lasting and had good lacing.

The aroma was of straw malts, citrus hops and an earthy Belgian yeast with notes of banana, caramel, coriander and dark fruit (raisons and prunes).

The taste was lightly bitter with a hint of fruit and spices in the beginning with the finish being a tad bitter with a slight sweet malty flavor and a touch of caramel, maybe honey and very light citrus peel bitterness at the end. Flavor lasted an average time with a lightly sweet fruitiness pretty much left to lying on the taste buds after all else faded away.

Mouthfeel was medium in body and creamy in texture with a nice soft carbonation.

Overall I thought this beer was exquisitely tasty and quite well balanced, but everything this brewer puts out seems to be that way...
