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.

OK ale. It is different than most and well brewed but not a favorite for me. There is an interesting funky element in the taste but also something metallic I’m not too keen on. It is not sweet and still has nice caramel and rich spiciness in the flavor. The yeast offers a hint of licorice. It has a good head and pleasant carbonation.

Une ale ambrée de 6,2 % abv. Couleur ambre moyen. Clarté nette. Bulles fines partout vives. Mousse beige moyen à 3 mm. Arômes d’épices, tabac brun, malt, caramel, miel doux. 1ère bouche douce à soyeuse avec une très belle entrée sur du malt grillé, un rien torréfié, miel. Arrière-bouche bien maltée, avec une pointe de muscade. 2ème au volume soyeux, avec un très bon malt/houblon, belle ampleur. Arrière-bouche avec du volume. 3ème quasi veloutée, avec en plus des saveurs de figues et pruneau. Arrière-bouche très agréable, pleine. La longueur apporte des nuances nouvelles, du bois, du fût, des feuilles mortes. La levure est douce, un rien poivrée, belle. L’alcool est correct pour le genre. La finale est ample, dense avec des saveurs développée de malt et de bois. CONCLUSION : fameuse ale très crémeuse, à la fois maltée et fruitée. Elle progresse sur la longueur et donne une finale bien pleine.

Aroma van bloemen, snoepgoed en suiker. Redelijk kraag op bijna sherry kleur. Smaak is laffer, te veel carbonisatie.

Amberkleurig, mooie witte kraag. Snoepachtige geur. Smaakt idem met vaag iets portachtigs maar als geheel weinig indrukwekkend.
