COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This dark brown Serafijn has a spicey herbal character and a soft bitterness. The Achilles brewery has a unique way of achieving an even heating of the wort: using no direct flame or steam, the wort is pumped through a spiral that sits in a tub of hot water!

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2006
Very hazy reddish amber color with a lemonadey, medium head. Sweet, rye-puddingy aroma with toffee and caramel. The flavor is rye pudding with maple syrup, plus some hops. Medium to full-bodied with lemonadey, high and foamy carbonation. In the very edge of being way too sugary and lemonadey. Not very balanced, for sure. Clearly a microbrewery product, but not a very pleasant one.

Cloudy brown color. Raspberries, apples, oranges, flowery nose. Smooth, creamy mouth of chocolate raspberry juice. Sweet velvty finish. WOW this beer was really rounded. Very drinkable. Another great random find.

Sten (710) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - JAN 29, 2006
A dark beer with a brownish head. Like all other beers from achilles a lot of corbonation, so it is very acidic in the aroma and taste. The aroma is also sweet. The taste has hints of caramel. (Bottlle 33cl)
