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.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2005
A very explosive beer after two years lying down in the fridge - more than half of the content came out upon opening. An unclear orange beer with a disappearing head. The aroma is sweet spicy combined with notes of yeast. The aroma is sweet and extremely spicy combined with notes of citrus, leading to a dry end.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2005
(Bottle 75 cl) Warning! Always stay close to the zink when you open a Blaugies-beer. They are EXTREMELY carbonated... Read Dickinsonbeer’s experience! Orangey golden and hazy. Very spicy notes throughout. Fairly light-bodied. Some acidity towards the end - rather pronounced actually. But a refreshing one. 110597

16th May 2008. Semi sharp dry beer with a light fruity touch but a bit of a dusty feel in the finish. Not too bad.
