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.

BoostIPA (1198) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Pours a cloudy gold with a ton of floaties. Aroma is pretty dead. Taste is bland and lifeless. Listless. Pretty meh. Dry finish. High carb.

ThirstyBird (1481) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2013
pours an unclear gold with a lofty white head. Smell is earthy, funky, spicy, grain, grass, light malt. Taste is spicy, lightly malty, a little perfume, tart fruit, and a bit watery compared to the nose. Body is light and the the carbonation is like hydrogen peroxide - way too much. I was excited to try this and unfortunately the taste wasn’t up to the nose.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 11, 2013

Temptation (220) - - AUG 28, 2013
Pale golden color, brilliant and transparent. Great head, white, foamy and exuberant, though not lasting. Leaves a notable lace, irregular, like little islands in the inner walls of the glass. Earthy and natural aroma, yeasty but malty, like bread, grass and yeast. The aroma, however, is light and shortlasting. The mouthfeel is like a typical saison, but slightly sweeter. Rustic, with citric notes (lemon zest), well balanced with raw grain traces. Well carbonated, low bodied, the overall is quite nice and eminently refreshing. Nice saison.

Silvan7 (649) - Samarate, ITALY - AUG 26, 2013
bottle @ home. saison fuori dagli schemi. la spelta rende il profumo meno acido, più erbaceo, sono invece classici il floreale, in primis gelsomino, e gli agumi. bionda/ambrata con abbondante schiuma bianca spumosa. gusto fresco, ricorda i te aromatizzati, ma speziato e dal finale brusco, acidulo e luppolato. birra con personalità.

jfb (3689) - Freising, GERMANY - AUG 18, 2013
(bottle) pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a quickly-diminishing frothy white head. aroma of apricots, light citrus fruit, herbal hops and straw, with the slightest hint of funk, powdered sugar and rhubarb. flavour is mostly talcum powder, banana, grass and floral hops, slightly phenolic, with a minerally and very dry finish. medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation.

DiarmaidBHK (3371) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Bottle from Brusin Ales. Pours golden with an inch of white foam. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Massive barnyard funk on the nose like a Saison should. Nice and peppery on the tongue. Finishes clean. One of the best saisons I’ve had.
