UPDATED: JUL 29, 2005 (Bottle 75 cl) I reckon Lefebvre puts this "Special" recipe out at different occasions. In my version it’s called "Happy Beerday" (!) and is supposedly a birthday beer. It’s a pretty, golden beer with a tall, frothy head. Wonderfully fresh nose and the freshness continues in the flavours that are malty and slighly spiced - I suspect some coriander. Yeasty notes ending with a dry, short bitterness in the palate. Huge sediment. A nice brew indeed. 110699

Sweet yeasty aroma. Blond with a small head. Slightly sour fruity sweet taste. OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2002
NB: Use by date was Dec 2001. Hazy gold clear colour with small white head, Faint fruity raisins, yeast and wheat beer aroma. Soft weak body and hardly anthing in the palate. Very mild to bland with hint of sweet nectar flavours. I would’nt expect a Belgian Strong ale to deteriorate quite this quickly. Maybe it was poorly stored?
