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.

Bottle, Max’s on Broadway. Thanks to Jeffin7 for the sample. Pours a clear, pale with a white head. The aroma is medicinal, skunky and cheesey. The flavor is peppper, herbal, very dry. The mouthfeel is sparkling.

"Okay first things first i think eagle dented my celing with the cork from this one and all he did was take the wire off. Poured a cloudy unfilter golden color with huge head go figure. Aroma was citrus peppery. Glavor was the same with the funk in there. This would be a great summer time beer."

Just finished mowing the lawn, and this was the perfect beer for after. Light golden color, nice white head. Just a bit of fruitiness and spice. Very easy to drink and refreshing. This is what BMC need to be.

750ml bottle. 2005 so says the cork. Unfiltered with a hazy dull golden hue. Good amount of white head. Strong banana and sweet gummy aroma. Grainy and slightly bready nose as well. Lively and full, with a sweet and dry palete. Full carbonation, and grainy. Citrus and banana notes in the mouth. Nice and dry with a bitter finish. Fruity, melons and crisp.

Pour is a cloudy yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is yeasty and vanilla. Flavor is citrus, grass and vanilla. Finish leaves a lasting banana flavor of the tounge. Very tasty and light with no bitterness.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 26, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2009 In short: A very dry, very wild and tart Saison. Very refreshing and very complex. Fantastic.
How: Bottle 750ml. Many many times. Usually as fresh as possible.
The look: Cloudy yellow body with an initially large white head with medium retention
In long: Nose is very barnyard with fruity notes of pineapples, pears, and more. The body is full and foamy and also very yeasty. Carbonation is pleasantly over the top which really works with this beer. Taste is hay, cheesy yeast, lemon, dried pineapples, dust, and so much more. Dry mouthfeel with a dusty/sandy feeling. An overall true rustic and wild sensation. This is a beer that bridges the gap between a true wild rustic Belgian Saison and a refreshing Belgian Witbier. This beer like my cousin Louis has a dual personality disorder.

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.

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.
