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 (516) - 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.

Idiosynkrasie (5332) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 29, 2015
750ml bottle. Clear, yellow-ish golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Very mild Saison aroma, fruity notes of apricot and peach, almost neglectable yeasty overtones, more dusty than really spicy. Taste follows those "mild" and easy drinakble lines. Nice, but nothing more...

Big saison this time, a 75cl bottle from beergium sarei with Friend. Aroma of lactose,cheese, basement aromas, earthy, for a rustic and big nose. golden, clear beer with rocky head, white foam. Taste is little sour with Sweet fruits, some grain, cheese, a little bit of grassy and some Spice. Quite dry finish. medium body, flat, oily feel, bitter and dry finish. Great saison, should it use to be.

Maakun (2056) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2015
Big bottle shared at home. Clear golden with big bright white head that leaves a nice long lasting film. Looks like a classic Belgian ale. Cloves, lots of dry Belgian spicy yeast, raw grains, wheat, fresh baked bread, lemon. Light sweet and bitter. Under medium bodied, bone dry and slick feel with fizzy carbonation. Super drinkable classic style. Not hugely exciting but way better than more commercial examples.
