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.

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.

rlgk (10851) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2006
Amber/orange, nice offwhite head. Malty, yeasty aroma. Flavor brings malt as well, nutty and a bit fruity and sourish.

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

omhper (19447) - 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 (4674) - 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.

Bottle. Cloudy orange coloured with an off white head. Aroma of malts, fruits and caramel. Sweet flavour of malts, fruits and caramel with notes of spices.

diabel (1607) - 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.
