This cross-cultural brew was first made at the request of an Irish musical group and was named "Celtic Heaven," but soon became a permanent part of the Serafijn lineup. Similar to a light Irish ale, but but with the intriguing of a spicy, almost perfumed aroma that comes not from spices but from a special Belgian yeast.

750ml bottle. Clear yet livelyamber honey hue. Thick layer of spotty off-white head. Musty citrus barnyard aroma. Earthy and woody with a touch of citrus fruitiness.Rather carbonated and zesty. Smooth rounded malts, followed by a spicy peppery yeasty flaovr. Touch citrus and minerals. Finish is acidic with a tingling sensation on the sides of the tongue. Well carbonated. Surprisingly easy for the depth and complexity. Sharp transitions from the palate. But the different aspects all have a spot on the tongue. Good citrus zest as the beer warms. Very nice brew!

Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2007
A nice head and a light brown color. The aroma is spicy with notes of roasted malt and caramel. The roasted malt is also found in the flavour, together with notes of candy sugar and citrus bitterness. Not a "big" beer, but rather harmonic. 1544

(Botle 33 cl) Clear, amber golden with a dense, off-white head. Fruity nose - perhaps even overripe. Medium body with lightly sweet caramel and then some not too pleasant malt notes. Dry finish. 191206

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2006
Bottle. Cloudy amber colour with a nice fine head. Light yeasty aroma with notes of spices and sourness. Malty and spicy flavour that ends up bitter and dry, very high carbonated. Nice belgium style beer.

fonefan (38082) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2006
Bottle. Golden color with a fluffy beige head. Unclear. Yeast, sweetness, ripe fruit and spice in the nose. Quite heavy. Fruits, notes of alcohol light caramel end sweetness in the flavour. Some vague spices are notable. Quite smooth mouthfeel. Body medium. Sweet warming ind the finish.

Bottle from Utobeer. Once absconded with a Serafijn glass (naughty, naughty!) for a drunken thrill. This is my first chance to entertain the glass with the appropriate brew. Hazy dark orange in colour with thin dissipating head. Strong nose of honey with toffee, orange, apricot and maple syrup creating a bit of confusion. Smells great and oddly familiar. The taste is even better. A bitter punch to the mouth is followed by sour citrus and raspberry...then comes the butter. Oh yeah. A light spiciness finishes it off nicely. Wow. A lot is going on in this beer. Definitely one of the most unique beers I’ve had to date.

Amber/orange, nice offwhite head. Malty, yeasty aroma. Flavor brings malt as well, nutty and a bit fruity and sourish.
