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.

77ships (8211) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 30, 2014
330 ml. bottle @ home. Procured from Willems & Zoon. Only lightly hazy burned sugar amber, off-white head. Nose is sticky BE, burned sugar, brown apple, herbal malts & iron touch. High carbonation, way too high. Fizzy metallic, herbal, tad empty sticky BE beer, leaves, bark, bitter herbal spices, tad bitter ginseng, faint herbal alcohol. Pretty unexciting Belgian, not that good either.
