COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2006

omhper (19217) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 26, 2006
Bottled. Hazy amber, brief heas. Light phenolic aroma of pineappel and banana. Medium bodied with clean mouthfeel and notes of burnt malt. A middle-of-the-road Belgian ale that is solid but fails to make a lasting impression.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2006
Hazy deep red color with a huge, tight head. Aroma of sweetish-caramely malt with some burnedness, and some figs. A bit raw, rye-puddingy-malty, sweetish flavor with figs, berries, and hints of alcohol. Medium-bodied, somewhat foamy-carbonated palate. A bit watery considering the sweet maltiness. Clearly the best of the Serafijn range, though.

joergen (20569) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2006

diabel (1605) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - FEB 6, 2006
Bottle, BBE August 2007 Clear, amber body. Off-white head. Uninteresting aroma: hops, soap, (hints of) alcohol. Moderately bitter, lightly sweet initial flavour. Moderately bitter finish (upcoming finish). Somewhat astringent, didn’t find it pleasant. Not bad either. Very unbalanced.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2006
Bottle. Hazy orange appearance with a big head. Spicy and peppery with insistent, but soft, hop presence. Lots of bittersweet, juicy fruit on the palate. Quite chewy. Very pleasant, but not earth-shattering.

Dark hazy orange-amber color, decent creamy off-white head, some lace. Aroma of malts, caramel, coriander and oak, maybe a bit of alcohol too. Caramel malty, hoppy, some roasted notes. Bitterness and some toffee in the aftertaste.
