Has anyone found a recipe yet to duplicate Ommegang's Rare Vos beer?

It's described from the brewery as:

Intended for the café as well as the dinner table, Rare Vos is an amber ale of medium color and strength. It sports aromas and flavors of caramel, orange, hops, plus an elusive fruity-yeasty flavor which will have you tasting in circles.

Not yet, although I've been mainly waiting for recpies here.

Sounds like not too many people know about it either, which will make a recipe critique awful difficult.

I love Rare Vos, haven't had it in ages though. I am not sure, but i'll check my 150 clone magazine. I can't recall if Rare Vos was in there or not. I know the Abbey and maybe Hennepin...

I did a search and found an interview with a home brewing club: grains (pale malt and crystal I think, maybe aromatic), hops (Styrian Goldings), and spices (sweet orange and coriander). Enough to work with to get something nice I'm sure.

After doing the math i have revised my previous recipe and brewed this one on 7/17/09
i will post when it is finished to let you know how close I got.

8 lbs Belgian Pils
1 lbs Belgian Munich
1 lbs Belgian Pale Ale
.5 lbs Belgian Caravienne
.5 lbs Belgian Aromatic
1.75 lbs Home Made Candi Sugar Clear
.15 lbs Belgian Special B

1 oz Styrian Goldings @ 60
.75 Saaz @ 15
.35 oz Corriander @ 10
.50 oz Sweet Orange Peel @ 10
.5 tsp Grains of Paradise @ 5

Wyeast 3739 - PC Flanders Golden Ale

Mash In @ 154 for 60 Minutes

ABV 6.7 %
IBU'S 25
SRM 10


Well it came out just about as close as I thought it would be, everyone I've let try it is delighted at how good it tastes, color is just a bit light but everything is there as far as taste, the abv was a bit higher due to yeast not wanting to quit on me, LOL, finished at 7.3 but I'm completely happy with it. when I do this again the only thing I will change is upping the special b to .25 lbs.

Reason: update

I'm just curious - how did you come up with your ingredients? I've seen other clone recipes that are similar but the areas of your recipe that seem to differ from other stuff I have seen:

Candi sugar
coriander
grains of paradise
I've hard that they use cinnamon but perhaps that isn't true.

Next time around you should try building up some yeast from a bottle of rare vos. I did this and it wasn't too hard. I have yet to make the beer though.

Man I love me some Rare Vos. I'll take a stab at this sometime this summer with this recipe and post back the results.
