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.

MelvinKalksma (1312) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2016

Medium aroma of malts, wheat, fruit, Saison yeast and citrus.

Turbid/opaque yellow/golden beer with medium yeast and with a medium white/off-white head.

Starts slightly/medium sweet with malts, wheat and fruit; ends slightly dry with Saison yeast and citrus.

This beer is rather intense and balanced, but lacks complexity. Way too balanced and thus safe for a Saison, being not intense enough and having no complexity whatsoever. Funny to see that the last sip you take has none of these problems, so... It could have been what it should have been.

EdKing (2483) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2016
Bottle from Dranken Geers. I’ve heard good things about this, but it has to stand up next to Saison Dupont. It’s got a massive white foam head but colour is a beautiful rich opaque golden amber. Nose is citrusy lemon, pithy orange, grassy, floral, creamy, caramel, spicy, maybe dried coriander. Ok this is good. Taste is citrusy, orange and caramel, lemon, lots of yeast funk, fruity, and creamy, some minerals, orange rind, with dried coriander, spicy. This is really good. Not quite up there with Saison DuPont,but not far off.

Garrold (4782) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2016
Bottle. Etre Gourmet. Hazy, dark yellow. Huge, rocky, lasting, white head. Nose has sugary, brioche malts. Lemon rind hop. Fruity, ripe banana yeast. Nothing too complex, but it’s clean and fruity. Taste is light sweet. Some light, stone fruit dryness. Foamy mouthfeel. Light body. Tangy, banana skin bitter finish. Good stuff. Easy drinking.

SylvainCFC (130) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2016
Blonde dorée claire, mousse blanche aérée abondante instable et rocailleuse. Carbonatation forte et très fine. Nez parlant de grains, de houblon et de léger citron. Attaque sur l’acidité avec la petillance qui joue sur la langue et le palais (impression d’un champagne). Notes fruitées discrètes du citron et abricot. Légère amertume en fin de bouche. Epeautre clair dans son apport d’une fine acidité. Final très court. La bouche semble rincée et en attente de la gorgée suivante. Bière de saison imparable, simple mais très identifiable.

Scrumpy369 (611) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 15, 2016
Bottle shared with Shonali at hopaholic. Hazy straw yellow colour, nice white head. Nose is sour and grainy. Taste is low sourness, almost no bitterness. Very high carbonation, maybe too much. Very nice nose, sadly doesn’t deliver that much.
