News Over Brews: Ommegang Rare Vos Edition


Pop-Break presents…News Over Brews!

The only entertainment podcast that serves up all the best pop culture news that’s fit to talk about, while reviewing a delicious craft beer every week.

This week we talk Marvel, Star Wars, and the idea of “franchise fatigue”. We also take a look at The Hateful Eight trailer, a quick review of the latest Mission: Impossible film, and discuss the new Star Wars Theme park. All while drinking a refreshing amber ale from Ommegang

Here’s the description of Ommegang Rare Vos directly from the brewery…

Rare Vos Amber Ale is styled after the smooth, drinkable beers popular in Belgian cafés. It pours a light copper hue, contrasting beautifully with a big, creamy white head. The nose offers orange blossoms and slight spice.

On the palate, the caramel maltiness shines strongly but with little sweetness. The profile leans toward dry fruity (yeast-affiliated), slightly fruity/hoppy with a beguiling spiciness. This complex, medium-bodied beer has a smooth mid-palate and moderate dry finish.

Well-balanced in all elements, it’s a mild, mellow brew.

Beer Style – Amber Ale

Alcohol by Volume – 6.5 %
