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.

Helder lichtbruin bier met veel schuim. Smaak is licht zoet en licht hoppig, caramel, banaan en mandarijn. Best een goed bier.

Ambrée trouble, effervescence moyenne, col blanc cassé moyen. Principalement maltée en entrée, très légèrement torréfiée, petit fruité bienvenu, amertume épicée qui ressort bien par la suite.

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.

Bottle from an early trade consumed at home from notes. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor had pale malts, yeast, fruit, banana, mild spices, not too much that stands out, probably wouldn’t do this again.

Alengrin (3019) - BELGIUM - OCT 10, 2014
Something between an Irish red and a Belgian amber, with yellow white, thick but not very stable, moussy head and misty copper colour. Fruity aroma of mango, melon, pear, passion fruit, also tomato, ginger, whisky, walnuts, cake, honey and some DMS (cooked cabbage) as well as an ever so faint hint of H2S (rotten eggs). Soft caramelly taste, fruity, yeasty, medium carbo, medium bitter finish.

Clear amber color, minïmal head. Aroma of caramel, candy sugar, nuts, ripe banana, anise. Taste is first sweet then more bitter, with an astringent finish. Light body, fizzy carbonation. OK beer, nothing special.

Niet echt mijn smaak. Er zullen mensen dit lekker vinden, maar ik vond het maar niks
