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.

lefossoyeur (501) - Montreal, Quebec, - JAN 13, 2013
Pours almost crystal clear golden topped by a generous white head that lasts, leaving a goof lace. Beautiful. Aromas of fresh crushed grains, wheat, hints of coriander, a bit dull. Lively carbonation upfront on the palate, light body, oily, very low bitterness, just hints of astringency in the head. Finish is oily and herbal. Very refreshing classic saison without bitterness. Closer to a wheat beer.

fkoolen (609) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2015
37,5cl corked bottle at home. Beautifully slightly cloud, light golden colour, nice lively carbonation rising up to form a big white, foamy head. Nose and taste are intensely malty, bready, lightly musty and distantly tard and citrusy. Dry finish. Great balance of flavours. Light body, lively carbonation (indeed champagne-like).

tmrmwel (1316) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2015
Bottle. Pours yellow, with an enormous creamy head slowly receding to two finger thickness. Aroma is farmhousey yeast, with notes of earth, malty notes of cereals, bread and honey, as well as some salty minerals and light herbal hoppy notes. Medium body, with fizzy carbonation. Flavour is dry yeast with musty wood and farmhouse notes, malty notes of cereals, kandi and toffee, as well as some herbal hops in the back. Lingering dry, musty farmhouse notes throughout,with an almost absurd drinkability. Brilliant!
