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 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. Itís 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

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.

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.

An unexciting, fairly mediocre Belgian. I was looking for a calm, middling beer tonight, and even that relatively low bar was not met. The beer pours a normal enough warm brown-amber color with an extremely effervescent head. The head puffs up hugely at first, filling the glass with bubbles with only a couple inches of liquid. Despite all of this initial excitement, the head actually dissipated quite quickly and left very little lacing. Mouthfeel is under-carbonated. The smell is really lacking. Itís a flat, yeasty odor with very little of the normal complexity of good Belgian yeast. The flavor is somewhat better but still odd. Itís sweet with a fair bit of caramel and bread malt flavor, but itís not really very interesting or complex. The bitter yeasty flavor is also there in the flavor. There is a merely passing earthy Belgian note. The beer just doesnít come together

Draft @ Maxís. Dark red pour with some tan head. Fruits: apples, peach and some light pear flavor. Tartness is light and some yeast influence.
