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.

RIXbeer (102) - USA - APR 20, 2008
Pours a tiny amount of beer with a gigantic amount of head. like 80% head. It took 10 minutes to pour the whole glass. Also This beer has a huge amount of "chunky" yeast. The first time I had this beer we poured the yeast into our glasses (split with Marc). The second time I kept the yeast out (split with Kevbo). Once the head fades, it leaves a barely visible amount of foam at the top and a ton of sticky lacing on the sides. You can taste the Spelt as long as you don’t pour the yeast into the glass. I swear to god the "Chunky" yeast kills the flavor of the spelt. But that’s all you can taste. In all honesty I wouldn’t go out of my way for this beer. I love this style of beer and this one is mediocre to barely good at best. It has a champagne like mouthfeel. Bubbly and very carbonated. Over all? hmmm At the time of this rating this beers averages an A-. That’s crazy. This beer isn’t better than a B- Grab a Hennepin instead! Not on my list of beers to have again.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - APR 3, 2008
Bottle on 4/3/2008. Faintly hazy light gold body with a medium foamy, quickly dissipating head. Aroma has some earthy qualities, countered by a light floral , citrus, and spice notes. Light body with a champagne like effervescence and very dry, palate cleansing mouthfeel. Not much sweetness at all, an underlying acidity, and spicy bitterness round out the flavor.

This was like a rustic mouthful of mint and cheese. It was lively and alluring, with a light cloudy hue.
