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.

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - NOV 18, 2005
750ml 2.004 on cork. Pours a huge off-white head over lite, cloudy, straw colored ale. No lacing. Sweet nose with dank overtones of yeast, staw, and frsh cut grass. There is very fine sediment. The taste is great! Very dry and somewhat acidic, with hints of lemon and chamomile tea. The mouthfeel is a little over the top in carbonation. The yeast is starting to form a small yellow pile in the bottom of the tulip. All and all this was a very enjaoyable, refreshing, and relativly cheap beer experience.

ogivlado (6167) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 29, 2015
Bottled 750ml. -from Vrutak Zagreb. Cloudy golden coloured, small white head that went away fast, some acidic notes with hint of smoke in the nose. Moderate malty, sweetish caramel, touch of spices and yeast with notes of herbs in rather dry finish. High carbonation as well. Not bad in general but once again nothing special from this brewery.

Benvitt stort, stort huve! Pissgul färg, citronljus. Doft av bonde, hö, humle, citron & vete, apelsinskal. Kolsyrad, spritsig smak som kittlar i gommen. Mycket gula frukter i smaken, kryddblandning med citrusgräs. Min prenis blev mör av Smakens rundhet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

glennmastrange (2400) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Bottle. Heavy malt of aroma of straw, dried grass for the hops, light barnyard for the yeast, with unripe apple, coriander and pepper in the background. Head is large fizzy/foamy, white with slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is medium yellow. Flavor starts moderately acidic and lightly bitter, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is hidden pretty well by the overly fizzy carbonation, and finishes very dry. Very crisp and tasty Saison. Make me burp.
