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.

CapedBrewsader (265) - Brasschaat, BELGIUM - OCT 23, 2007
UPDATED: APR 15, 2008 37.5cl bottle: Brilliant, crisp gold color with white, lareg-bubbled head that doesn’t stay around too long. First aroma is of skunk but it quickly blows away leading to a nice earthy and musty cellar aroma wit cork and vinous characters. Slight rubber or band-aid but not to an off-putting degree. When this lively liquid hits the mouth and flows over the tongue, you feel that the beer is going to be slightly sweet, but this is kicked out of your mind with a nice bitter twang. Some pineapple, citrus, pepper, bitter orange peel, and a sharp raw wheat, followed by a little malt and a lightly metallic sourness. A very nice dry warm weather beer!

0.375 bottle. Golden color with creamy head and lots of floating particles. Sweetish, perfumy, honeyish, peppery and clovey aroma with cork and tropical fruits in the background. Dryer flavor with woody, grainy, peppery, herbal, nutty, oily and orangey notes. Dry, peppery and woody finish. Truly artisanal and original beer!

jzzbassman (1560) - Arlington, Texas, USA - OCT 3, 2007
2005 Bottle. Beautiful hazy pour with a big head that took me the better part of 10 minutes to pour 2 glasses. Aroma is very yeasty, doughy, and smells faintly of orange peel. The yeast is really upfront, with a champagne like dry finish, peppery in the middle.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2007
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden with a very large long lasting rocky white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of yeast, cereal grains, and light citrus. Taste is the same as aroma but more pronounced. Medium thin mouthfeel that finishes very dry and slightly spicy. Very good.

Taste: Bright, tart lemon flavor with very little sweetness. Hint of hay. Light spiciness. Finishes dry and crisp with a mild herbaceousness to it. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Moderate carbonation. Drinkability: Hmm. Maybe spelt has the inside track for comeback grain of the year!

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 31, 2007
Bottle @ The Front Door in Boise: Pours a hazy yellow color, nice thick white head and plenty of lacing. The nose is floral with skunky light hops and plenty of yeasty esters, some thick leather and citrus notes. Complex flavor along with a bright dry mouthfeel and a yeasty note. The finish is nice and balanced, dry, pleasant. Excellent traditional saison, lacking intensity and overall umami but good everywhere else.
