A- Pale amber body with some hints of orange. Mostly hazy with some light coming through, but no visibility. Foamy light tan head that lingers around for some time.

S- Bready malts, some sweet bread, a hint of earthy grains, just a touch of sweet syrup.

T- Somewhat sweet with lots of malt. Some caramel, some earthiness, lots of grainy bread flavors. A dash of nuttiness to it as well.

M- Medium bodied, medium carbonation, somewhat creamy and bready.

O- A nice amber with hints of Belgian yeast coming through. A great change of pace from the over-hopped amber trend.

A - Coppery bronze color with a very foamy head.

S - Very fruity, mainly orange...maybe a bit of caramel and peach. Some spices there, but I can't identify them.

T - Fruit (orange), malt and spice, but not overpowering in either case; dry finish balances everything out nicely. Very drinkable; goes down easy.

M - Very balanced; not overly heavy, creamy nor watery.

O - I really enjoyed my first taste of Rare Vos; this is a brew I'll be going back to when I'm in the mood for an amber ale with a Belgian twist. I could see this one pairing very well with a wide variety of food.
