I had this at Global Brew. Pours amber with a white head. Taste sweet, earthy funky flavor. I thought this was so so. I could drink this again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Serafijn Christmas Angel has a medium, fizzy, spongy head, some lacing left on the glass, and an initially clear (clouds up after the caked bottom contents are swished & poured in), bubbly amber appearance. The aroma is subdued, but one can detect some spices and sweet bread. The taste, just like the aroma, is mostly of beer, with a hint of spice and bread. Mouthfeel is full and fairly prickly, and Serafijn Christmas Angel finishes dry, refreshing, easy drinking, and not the slightest bit alcohilic. Overall, this is a nice Winter beer, because the focus is on beer flavor and not gimmicky spice flavor. RJT

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated on 6-15-2010 (Bottle) This beer forms a medium sized extremely fizzy white head with a short retention, lots of floaties, hazy golden body, and spotty amounts of lacing. The Aroma is biscuit malt, sweet, spicy, fruity, grassy and floral hops. The Taste is sweet, spicy, lightly malty, and spicy. The Palate is lively and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer was a gusher when opened, easy to drink at 8%ABV, but I did not enjoy the flavor as it seemed disjointed.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From notes: Poured hazy orange-amber with a thick, creamy 1-finger off-white head. Sweet, orangey aroma with a very light peppery note and some earthy yeast. Body is medium, with a slight thickness and a dry finish. Flavor is citrusy with a touch of spice, maybe coriander. The dryness in the finish becomes more pronounced as it warms.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma has bread, candy sugar, and some herbal. Flavor starts sweet and bready, with Belgian yeast, caramel, bread, and orange. Fruity bitterness, spice, and a little alcohol in the flavor. Another great Belgian beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours cloudy orange amber color with a 2-3 finger fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Slight foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of cherry, raisin, pear, herbal, cinnamon, candi sugar, honey, and light yeast spices. Nice and well balanced aromas with good complexity and decent strength; very pleasant. Taste of cherry, raisin, pear, plum, cinnamon, herbal, earth, caramel, pepper, candi sugar, and yeast spices. Lingering notes of light fruits, herbal, pepper, cinnamon, candi sugar, caramel, and yeast spices on the finish for a bit. Good balance and complexity of flavors. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly slick and prickly mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Belgian strong pale ale. Good flavor balance and complexity; very smooth to sip on. Really enjoyable.
