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.

cathschlag (48) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2006
Bière d’un beau jaune clair. Petit dépôt au fond du verre. Mousse abondante. Ronde en bouche, mais sèche en finale, même si on retrouve une toute petite note d’amertume en finale.

Bottled: Yellow coloured. Unclear. Dense off white head. Yeast and sweetness in this beer with some fruity undertones. Is light well spiced and is quite wheaty. Medium bodied. Ends on some quite grassy notes.

marcus (6696) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 28, 2006
This golden ale poured with a huge fluffy head, eliciting a sharp yeasty aroma. The flavor is initially sweet with a carbonated mouthfeel and a bitter finish.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2006
Very spritzy mouthfeel with light fruity nose. Very refreshing interplay of flavors...apples/champagne/Belgian spicing/citrus/yeast/grass/and a bunch of strange fruity notes that I can’t name. Very nicely brewed, and I will be looking forward to more of these beers.

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2006
An incredible, white head settles foamy but holds thick over a thick-hazed, wheaty/golden body. Aroma holds a sharp Belgian yeast profile with pronounced banana and sweet fruits. Depsite its coldth, it conveys a warm, buttery feeling in the mouth. Clove and cinnamon are carried effortlessly by yeast-driven flavors.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2006 A decent beer, but rather light for a Saison Pours a pale lemon color. Almost tastes like a white beer! Certainly refreshing, but a little thinner than most Saisons.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 10, 2006
Pours a lightly cloudy golden with tons of CO2 and a plentiful lasting white head. Aroma is elusive with grainy bread notes along with some acidity and funk and some grassy hops. The body is very light. The flavor is even more elusive but I pick up flavors of chamomille, orange, corriander, grassy hops and really light fruity esters. Finishes bone dry with moderate bitterness. I really enjoyed this a lot. I want it on tap all summer long.

Oakes (12777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2005
Cloudy golden colour. Dusty yeast aroma with hints of feet, biscuits, straw, wood and apple. Fizzy with light fruit notes, earthy hops and lots of dusty yeast. Basic pale malt profile, which becomes more dominant as the beer sits and loses CO2. Simple but well made saison.
