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.

33 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange to light amber with a little semi fizzy off-white head. Spiced and light metallic aroma. Fizzy carbonated mouthfeel. Flavour is mild caramel malt and distinct spiced. Mild yeasty note into the finish. Lingering fruity and spiced finish into a solid bitterness. Mild caramel note in the far finish. Wellbrewed, but nothing great.

A hazy amber beer with a huge orange head. The aroma is quite spicy with notes of coriander, yeast, muscat, and soap - is that what Joris calls aftershave? The flavor has a somewhat weird spicyness, though not unpleasant, it contains notes of muscat, yeast, brown sugar, and nutmeg - a bit on the spicy side for me. The end is dry, but it keeps prickling the tongue for a long while. It is a very lively beer, be very careful if You pour it in a Tulip glass - next time I’ll pour it in a Trappist glass. The livelyness also cost me a bottle - it simply blew the bottom of the bottle, while it was standing in my cupboard - I never had that happen before.

(Botle 33 cl) Clear, amber golden with a dense, off-white head. Fruity nose - perhaps even overripe. Medium body with lightly sweet caramel and then some not too pleasant malt notes. Dry finish. 191206

oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 12, 2008
Bottled. Deep golden colour, small white head. Aroma is caramel, yeast, mild notes of alcohol and some wood too. Flavour is quite the same but with a lot of nuttyness and also grassy notes added. Also some notes of yeast and candy sugary sweetness. Aftertaste is yeasty, nutty and quite sugary.

omhper (19194) - 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.

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

Hazy amber color; wonderful head, huge, thick. Strange but nice aroma, perfumy, soapy, candy-like. A suspect that I got from the aroma is confirmed by the taste: infection; the body is medium-weak, with a light sourness. Not extremely bad, but I think it’s spoiled.
