Pours a deep copper with lively carbonation bubbles and an abundant white head giving way to a dense lacing.
Sweet citrus aroma with yeasty bread quality. Further inspection brings out orange zest and other lighter fruits. Spice is mild in the aroma and tough to specifically identify.
Excellent spiced yeast flavor and again sweet citrus flavors with hints of apple. Spices likely include coriander and other peppery qualities. Perhaps a very mild hop presence at the finish.
The spice provides the perfect bite to offset the sweet characteristics of this beer to the extent it is apparent on the palate. Generous carbonation, but lighter bodied.
Rare Vos is a treat to the palate and a beer I could enjoy for a while with a few friends. There are numerous flavors and qualities that leave you seeking another sip to find more to enjoy.
