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.

33cl bottle @ home. Clear dark copper to amber color, no head, just a small white to off-white lacing. Smell almost nothing. Taste malts and a sharp spicy bitterness. Fizzy carbonation, low to medium body.

750ml from State Line. Faded amber with a decently fluffy head, nice sticky retention. Nose has some mild spice from yeast, with a good bit of bready malt. Comes across as a bit stale, and I wonder how old this bottle is. Flavors are mostly quite dry, but not in the crisp sense. It’s overall a bit on the down side.

Has an interesting scent. Nothing all too special as far as flavour is concerned.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Crisp palate. Refreshing beer. Toffee and banana flavours. Long finish. Nice.

750 ml. bottle. Lot 0607. Pours a medium, off white, lasting head over an initially clear amber (SRM 8) body....nose is light malts, with cereal, light yeast....taste is light fruits, pear, apple, finishing with a malty cereal, finishing medium dry....mouth feel is light, carbonation low. This is a pleasant, not particularly interesting Belgian Ale. BJCP 5/3/11/4/5

altonbrownd (3681) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2010
Bottle from Mitra Bergen. Dark amber body with medium head. Nose is yeasty and spicy. Taste of caramel, malts and toffee. Sweet. Watery, high ABV and pretty good. But lacks an overall punch.

Vaiz (3373) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2010
Bottle at home. Hazy copper pour, thin creamy off-white head. Aroma of brown sugar, spices, some fruits and sweet malts. Flavor is bread, sugary sweetness, yeasty and some fruits. Slightly grainy. Creamy texture and average carbonation.
