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 (490) - 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.

axl (172) - Lund, SWEDEN - JUN 30, 2015
750ml bottle. Golden with large, airy white head. Aroma of saison yeast, wheat, spices, citrus hops and a slight, not at all unpleassant, skunkiness. Similar taste with a noticeable citric hop profile, saison yeast, spices, pepper, banana and wheat. Medium-light mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

joeneugs (4111) - Livermore, California, USA - JUN 28, 2015
On tap at Ol in Walnut Creek. It pours a clear pale yellow gold with a white head. The aroma is wonderful with pale malt, grape, lemongrass, melon and herbal spice. The flavor has more melon, lemongrass, mild phenolics and citrus with a soft pale maltiness. Medium to high acidity. Medium noble hop bitterness in the finish. A great Saison.

750ml Bottle - Golden with a foamy head. Lemon, wheat and a hint of spice in the aroma. Refreshing and nicely balanced taste with lemon, lime, yeast and a hint of coriander. Easy to drink on a summer’s day.

Ysok02 (331) - MOns, BELGIUM - JUN 22, 2015
Une saison super raffraîchissante avec des arômes citronnés et levurés et une bouche qui allie amertume, fruit et longue finale désaltérante. Un régal

SamTheBarrel (609) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - JUN 22, 2015
750ml green corked and caged bottle with a label depicting a miller and a windmill, poured into a Tulip glass. Appearance is opaque orange with a large frothy white head, that dissipated quickly leaving some lacing on the glass. Aroma of lemon zest, pears, banana and herbs. Flavours of lemon zest, spices, wheat bread, herbs, banana and pears. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, soft texture and lively carbonation. Blaugies Saison D’Epeautre a fresh refreshing beer.

Pyrmir (4067) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2015
750 ml bottle. Cloudy golden with white head. Aroma has yeast, light peppery spicy notes, band aid, light banana and herbs. Taste has more band aid, heavy phenols, spicy yeast notes and pale malt. Flavour is light to moderate sweet and bitter. The phenols kind of ruins it for me.

Bottled:
Pours hazy golden with a large, fluffy head. Aroma is yeast and wheat with a touch of pears. Mouth feel is a bit watery. Dry taste of yeast and wheat. Also some grassy citrus.
Not very spectacular but it is a good thirst quencher.
