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.

ElGaucho (2280) - 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.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 8, 2006
Bottle @ Max’s: Hazy yellow-golden-straw colored body along with a medium white head, somewhat lasting. The aroma shows some light grass, yeast, light funk, fresh straw, grains, with some hints of cheese. The flavor is spicy hops, grass, sweet grains, plenty of yeast, light funk, mild pepper, plenty of the funky-spicy flavors you’d expect from any saison. Medium bodied, medium carbonated, lively at times.

"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.
