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.

bierkoning (10830) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2006
Blonde, cloudy. Hops, pepper and citrus in both aroma and flavor. Some tartness. Grapefruit and pepper aftertaste with a touch of cream. Just below medium bodied. Quite good!

schuimkroaat (426) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 1, 2006
Beautiful golden colour with a fine yet thick haze and an abundant white froth. Fresh, rich aroma of grains, citrus, nutmeg... and a touch of ’farmyard’. Dry and tart with notes of wood and citrus; a spicy, finely bitter finish.

JK (4833) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUN 25, 2006
Interesting, mine was not transparent at all but an opaque, dark yellow. It had a very thick and large head and looks great in a Trappist glass. The aroma has wheat, coriander, and some barnyard weirdness. Flavor is much like a wheat beer, fairly sweet but enhanced by the strange farmhouse quality of this beer. There are also a dryness to this beer, that follows the initial sweetness on the tongue. Finishes just a little sour. Thick and heavy body.

jeffin7 (613) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - JUN 19, 2006
Pours transparent light gold with a medium head. Aroma is skunky hops, averates saison funky yeast, and grain. Flavor is mild with some barnyard, slight hops, and a light grain. Thin body, watery palate.

Lubiere (10726) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2006
Hazy blonde with floaties, and a thin white head. In aroma, a fielf of dandelion, urea, lactic acid, barnyard, funky and pleasant. In mouth, more of a lemony malt, with sage and bitter orange peels. Medium bodied. Mondial 2006.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2006
Bottled. Gushed on opening and poured a very cloudy ginger orange with a fluffy off-white head and a little patch of yeast. The aroma is very inviting and far reaching. It comprises lots of funky citricity; farmyard, sweaty feet and cheese. The taste is a little spicy peppery. Nicely hoppy and nicely funky. Tasty and drinkable but not as quenching and moreish as I was expecting.

Out of the first 800 and some odd beers I’ve had, none have created such a projectile of the cork as did this one. Man, not only a super loud pop, but all I did was loosen the wire restraint, and whamo the cork took off with no warning about 10s later (this is why they tell you not to point these things at people, but I had no idea that was going to happen). Appearance was cloudy pale golden color with a huge head and lots of carbonation. Aroma was citrus, light funk, and most strongly, pepper. Flavor was very similar, again with pepper very prominent and coriander in the background. Mouthfeel was moderate and very refreshing.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 10, 2006
2005 750ml bottle shared by clarkvv. Pours a golden color with a white frothy head that lasts. Head receedes and leaves lots of lacing throughout. Nose is very spicy, lots of coriander and pepper. Nose also has some very fresh cut grass notes. Flavor is very light and watery. Some nice peppery notes and some coriander and lemon, but overall flavor is not spectacular as the nose is. Overall, the beer is very drinkable and would make great for sessions.

Sammy (9237) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2006
aroma is melange of spice. It’s cloudy yellow with a little head. Bold carbonation, tart acidic citus fruit,yeasty, malted down. Spelt gives it interesting fresh rye bread flavours. Hops are present. Drying finish with sprucy pine. Better as it warmed

Robe blonde claire surmontée d’une mousse blanche épaisse qui persiste. Arômes de céréales et d’agrmues. Saveurs d’agrumes, de céréales, de fruits, de bonbon, de levure et d’épices.
