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.

mile (3131) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, large and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate malty - lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish aroma, light notes of barnyard and faint bread, light spiciness (coriander, light pepper), light citrus and hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty - lightly wheaty and dryish flavor, light spiciness and light - some herbal hoppyness. Finish is short to average malty - faintly wheaty and dry, light - some spiciness and light - some herbal hoppyness, light alcohol. Bit thin saison - too much alchol in the finish considering the body. Could use more body to balance spiciness and alcohol.

rbrazell (1702) - Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Draft at Edmunds Oast. Clear golden pour with a large rocky white head. Musty, yeasty aroma along with lemon peels, grains of paradise and light grains. Flavor is similar with moderate carbonation in the mouth and a medium body yet slightly fuller for a saison. Nice beer.

aleigator (290) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2014
Hazy, golden yellow, with a fantastic froth head. Has aromas of musty yeast, nutmeg, cheese and corn, with hints of pepper and clove. Taste is defined by soft, sunny yeast, with peppery spices, along with a lively carbonation. Inherits an interesting flavor of popcorn, which pairs well with metallic hints and fresh cut grass. The finish brings a lot of warm spices to the palate, also soft yeast with a subtle bitter aftertaste. Well balanced, very refreshing. Has a smooth mouthfeel, while the body is noteworthy complex for a light to medium-bodied saison.
