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.

Tap at Maxís as Achilles Serafijn "Pale". Pours a cloudy orange. Red delicious apples in the nose. Sweet, light-bodied. Some candies. Light Grand Marnier. Some booziness. Not bad.

Teege (375) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 4, 2010
Draft at redlight redlight. Pours a golden amber. Mostly bubblegum on the nose, which i donít really mind as it is complemented by hints of a spicy yeastiness. The flavor on the other hand is a huge let down. kind of a stale flavor. not really sure whatís going on but whatever it is i really donít care for it.

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Bottle:   Brownish caramel, sediment floating about, large rocky off-white head, moderate carabonation, decent lacing.   Bready nose, slight funk, a little basement.   On the tongue its rather bland, typical Belgian table beer, bready, malty, very slight floral aspect that otherwise tends to be quite muted.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, a touch spritzy.   Clean finish, remains bready.   Standard fare.   Not really worth the $12 price tag tho.   Yeah, fairly plain/boring Belgian Ale that is far too expensive for what it delivers.   The best thing it has going for it is that it is very clean, finishes quite crisp.   Good, decent, but nothing out of the ordinary.   Unfortunately not worth the price tag tho.

0.75l - Laid flat in the glass, looked boring, smelled boring, tasted boring. Big disappointment.

piscator34 (1888) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 3, 2009
Bottled sample via lubiere. Light amber on colour with medium to strong carbonation. Aromas are of red apple skins, gumdrops, plums, and spice. Caramel malts enter the mix on the palate, along with more of the orchard fruit and cooking-spice character coming through. Powder dry, minerally finish. Very lightweight, but also quite drinkable. Fairly good.

TaxiDriver (1440) - Stadland, GERMANY - MAY 17, 2009
Bottle. A very malty aroma, a light touch of alcohol, bread, a very soft metallic smell. The head is beige, medium large and foamy creamy with a rather long duration. The body is red. The first taste is bitter, quite malty with some chocolate. The body is creamy with a lively carbonation and rather soft.

Very uninteresting. amber color pour. Malt and hops, slight breadiness. no complexity of flavor. Boring.
