    Dont know if this is it, but "vos" in French is the possessive "your," I believe.

    Also, VSOP for Congnacs? When I first read this my mind blurted out "Victory Over Swedes!!".

    As we're talking Belgian(-style) beers here, you have two possibities:

    Flemish: fox
    French: your

    Most (American) usage will probably lean towards "fox."

    Cheers!
