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.

375ml bottle. Initial pour is clear golden with a large and long lasting white head, excellent lacing. Aroma is of yeast and must, some bananas and peaches, light sourness. Flavour is yeasty, some dust, lemon citrus, a bit dry and bitter. Yeasty mouthfeel, medium/light body, high carbonation. Finishes long, yeasty, lots of citrus and quite dry. I started off not really liking this but it got better as it warmed. A nice saison.

Flaske fra Vinmonopolet Kvadrat: champagnesmell og højt skum! Lett uklar strågul, fruktig aroma av belgisk gjær med litt blomster og krydder - dette lover godt. Deilig balansert smak med lett og fin kropp. Akkurat passe besk, en elegant saison slik jeg liker de. Antakelig medvirker bruken av spelt til dette, "d’epautre" betyr faktisk "med spelt". Et interssant øl.

0.75L bottle from Belgian e-shop Slightly hazy, straw color, big white head that lasts decorates the glass beautifully. Intense aroma, yeasty estery, citric, sweet grains, spicy from the wheat/spelt. Good amount of yeast at the bottom. Nice fruity taste, grains, some spiciness, slighty hoppyness. There is a funky/wild yeasty smell, something like light white fruitiness(pear?) that would be a negative in any other beer. High carbonation, medium body, dry. Not at the hoppy side of saison but a very nice brew nonetheless.

75cl bottle. Hazy pale yellow colour with a nice white head. Malts and yeast in the aroma. Frizzy lively high carbonation and medium to light body. Taste is quite bitter soften by the carbonation. Overall, a very good refreshing beer.

On tap @Bir&Fud and Buskers Pub (Rome). Straw yellow appearance, a bit unclear, big head. Nose is belgian yeasts, some fruits, flowers and hops. Taste is very well balanced, malt, bread, some fruits, a hint of sourness and a medium bitter end. Medium body, medium carbonation. Another very well brewed belgian saison.

andrew_drinks (233) - Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG - NOV 12, 2014
Bottle from Humulus. Satisfying champagne-like pop. Very pale, pillowy white head on top. Aroma of sun-baked hay fields reminds me of the countryside in summer, touch of woody herbs. Spritzy carbonation, but appropriate. Soft, light doughy sweetness to start on the tongue, then develops into light herbs, lemon, a hint of pine needles, a bit of creaminess. Lots to discover as it warms. Light in body, dry and bitter finish. Beautiful stuff.

ClubGonzo (4550) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy light golden body with a large, bubbly white head. Nose is boiled vegetables, faint stable notes, hay, straw, bread dough and hints of white sugar and baker’s yeast. Taste is white sugar, baker’s yeast, bready malt tones, citric peel and hints of bitter herbs, wet grass and gooseberries. Light to medium body, fizzy carbonation. A saison with a certain character to it, despite a slightly off-note aroma and a far too fizzy carbonation level - even for a farmhouse/saison-style of beer. Not fantastic, but not too bad either.
