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!

Alengrin (4824) - BELGIUM - OCT 10, 2014
Artisanal massieve ale with off-white, sticky, decreasing but stable head and deep bronze colour with a haze of yeast just below the head. Sweet fruity and yeasty aroma with impressions of apple sauce, overripe pears, pineapple, bread, cake, vanilla, rhubarb, buttermilk, candi sugar, walnuts, dried leaves, soap and peppery hops. Fruity and malty taste, sweet but not sticky, a bit mineral-like with stronger than average carbonation for the style, more nutty and dry in the end with medium hop bitter finish. Quite enjoyable indeed.

guiroul33 (255) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - SEP 27, 2014
Between amber and brown color, quite clear. Aroma of caramel, milk chocolate, orange, anise, strawberry. Taste is sweet but less than expected, some bitterness in the finish with notes of coffee, roasted malt, peer, strawberry flavor. Overall a good brown beer.

Thx! 33 cl. bottle sampled @ Gollem. Dark brown with a huger creamy brown head. Smells very sweet with cocoa, sugar and mocha. Tastes like coca-cola, very sweet with molasses, brown sugar, caramel, sweet spices, dark fruits. Sweet & sticky body. Another sweet Belgian and this one is quite soda-like but enjoyable at least, agreeable, I can live with this, substantial.
