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.

vyvvy (4625) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 1, 2006
Pours hazy dull yellow with a nice sized soapy white head. The aroma has sharp citrus, barnyard, pepper and earthy yeast. Medium body with lots of semi-sharp carbonation. The taste starts with an earthy tart flavor that is tingly on the roof of the mouth. There is a brett flavor that is dominant. The finish hs sharper and drier than most saisons. I’m not sure what difference the spelt made, but this is a quality saison worth having.

Slightly hazy straw colour with a nice big lasting head. Aroma is granny smith, yeast, straw and some barn Starts of with lots of carbo and biscuity malt flavour before turning to a nice dry tartness with light sour acidic notes. Simple but effective.

kp’s Fest of 26. Bam! Goes the cork! Big pop and a gush and we have a frothy whipped egg head over a hazy yellow body. Leather, rose and lemon play together in the aroma. Fruity, funky flavor. Dry finish. A bit thin bodied.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2006
750 ml bottle opened with force. Lightly hazy and effervescent lemon straw body with a large soapy white head. Pleasant peppery aroma with abundant fresh wheat, plus lime zest and floral notes. Rich, earthy, and nutty wheat and base malt flavor with emerging clove and menthol phenols, and light acidity. Medium bitter finish enhanced by a nicely dry palate. Quaffable, elegant and seemingly very authentically styled saison. I want more of this.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 9, 2006
750-ml. bottle, 2004 vintage. Semi-translucent, pale and bright dulled yellow in color with a creamy, beady white foam head that retains well on top. Aroma has plenty of coriander and lemon zest, yielding bright crescent roll traits. Tangerines and guillotined wheat fields aromatically transpire to field mice trucking through French bakeries. Easy going flavor refreshment gives off candied lemon chews and subtly tart lemonheads. Dry, bitter front is amplified by coriander, later becoming a host of peels (lemon, lime, tangerine, etc.) Bittersweet synchronicity. Sea green and lemony tea leaves break the light candi barrier, while mild cotton seeds germinate freely. Effervescence meets up with spruced coriander and overpowers the light bakery sweetness. Green guava and mint leaves tingle in the finish, alongside a tart lemon trait performance.
