COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saison D’Epeautre is a saison beer made in a unique traditional style, using spelt and barley malt in the mash. Very dry and light in body, with a hint of wheaty tartness and a hardy texture that expresses the character of spelt, a primitive strain of wheat.

It is one truly feisty brew, with an outrageous pop and a natural long-lasting head. And ah, the aroma! It’s a wonderfully heady, musty, cellar character that is unmistakably Belgian and a lot like champagne. The taste delivers on the promise of the nose. Very enjoyable, and perfect for summer, but wonderful at any time of year.

D’Epeautre is hand-brewed in small batches by the impassioned, gifted Blaugies brewers, a husband, wife, and son team. They’re very adventurous in recreating traditional beer styles – and are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. The family enjoys good food and beer, and consumes a lot of its own product for cooking and drinking. We like the rougher, grainier malt texture of all their beers. They give you the feeling that the brewers put this beer in a bottle just a few days ago, especially for you.

Alengrin (2463) - BELGIUM - OCT 8, 2014
Saison with spelt from a brewery passionate about the style - and a brewery which has only delighted me with their farmhouse ales so far. In existence since 1994. Very rocky, sticky, yellow beige, stable head and warm lemony yellow colour with peachy hue, cloudy with deposit. Powerful aroma with sourish spelt, sweetish barley, peppery hops, lemon peel, ginger, apple, pepper and an earthy and somewhat sulphuric ’barnyard’ effect distinguishing this from many other attempts at this ancient beer style. Dry taste with good balance between sourish spelt and sweetish barley same as in the aroma, sharpish spicy and yeasty notes in the middle, long and dry hop bitterishness in the finish. Complex and perhaps a bit underestimated in my opinion.

A hazy colour of straw, the foam took ages to settle down. Big yeasty, wheat, and spicy notes in the smell. Yeasty and strong notes of wheat and pepper, mild coriander, some banana. Very complex and rather a dry brew to be sipping on. Light bodied with plenty of carbonation. Beers using Spelt wheat sure are strange but I like this.
