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.

SinH4 (7034) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - FEB 10, 2018
Bottle shared with kiwey. Beautiful bright cloudy golden color with white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is earthy, leathery, definitely a grain spice there, very funky, hay, grassy. Taste is banana, earthy, barnyard funk, tangy grains/spelt, rough grains, grassy. Sparkly mouthfeel, "moussierend". A beautiful, truly rustic Saison. Sublime!

kiwey (24) - AUSTRIA - FEB 10, 2018
Bottle, shared with SinH4. Rich and golden colour, white short lasting head. Aroma of grass and hay, sour, cheeselike (not surprising). Taste slightly sour and herbal, funky, earthy and awesome.

750 corked and caged at home, all alone. Huge, lively head. Aroma is of barnyard, skunk, flaked wheat, and spelt, I guess. There is definitely a raw, fresh, grainy edge to the nose. The body is course, with high carbonaton. The flavor is wheat, yeast, bread, some cidery apple and pear notes, musty hops, funky, and a grassy dry finish. Comes together beautifully if you appreciate the style, on par with Dupont I'd say.

75cl bottle. Best before: end 2013. Kept in a fridge and hopelessly expired, I guess, but here goes nothing. Pours hazy golden with a diminishing, frothy, white head, including 'floaties'. The aroma contains lots of yeast, citrus, hops, herbs, grass, barnyard, rye & spelt. It tastes light to medium yeasty sour and light hoppy/spicy bitter; dry, grassy finish. Medium body, slick texture, fizzy carbonation. Still okay, though something was off, so I think it deserves a re-rate once.

rdb84 (651) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2017
Murky golden. A: pine, lime, lemon, hay, yeast, nice. T: lovely balanced saison, perfect mix between bitterness, malty sweetness and yeast. Enjoyed it.

BVery (11540) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 7, 2017
Tap at Sovereign. Lightly hazy yellow gold pour with a huge white head. Wheaty, yeast, basement, slight funk, light and very east to drink. Fairly delicate. Yum.

VDuquerroux (2040) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - NOV 12, 2017
Bottle, 75cL. 6%. Purchase ("saveur-biere", FR). Home. Shared with my dad. Before tournament Largeasse (cast iron discs on lead board). A golden clear bubbly beer with a big white foamy head ; good retention. Herbs (+), light flower, citrus notes, light "wild character". Light sweet, medium dry bitter refreshing, spicy note. Light to medium body, light silky texture, average good carbonation, dry herbal bitter finish. Overall, great !!
