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.

Lubiere (10840) - 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 (9314) - 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

ElGaucho (2285) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 14, 2006
Bottle. Beer on the Pier brought by Shelton Bros. Slightly tart aroma but otherwise a little banana wheat in the nose. Cloudy light gold with a thin, white, lasting head. Very carbonated mouthfeel with banana notes. Quite interesting. Probably would be better after letting the carbonation settle down a bit. Not bad; a style on which I need to gain more experience.

rederic (3202) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 11, 2006
Bottled in 2004, hazy yellow hue, with an off-white head, with a wheaty and spelty notes, yeasty, citrus fruits accent, hint of vanilla spiciness, floral hops in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, spelty character, with some green apples, and zesty acidic citrus fruits accents, with some woody, corky notes, hint of spiciness, nice corbonation, leading towards a lemony floral hops bitterness finish.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2006
2005. Hazy yellow/gold. Huge, explosive, dense sponge of a white head. Poured into my new Blaugies La Moneuse tulip. I think they make their own glasses in the same garage they make their beer. This thing is crooked from every angle, now the most gangster glass I have. Aroma of must, grainy malts, crisp and a bit floral hops, subtle light fruits. Flavor to match with the yeast picking up some spicy notes and a tinge of sourness. Finishes crisp, dry, yeasty. Medium, sparkling body. Refreshing, easy to drink saison. Great stuff, especially for the warmer parts of the year.
