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.

Otje (678) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2008
Hazy, pale yellow beer with a huge eggy head. Lovely malty fruity, citrussy aromas escape upon opening the bottle mmmmm. Grassy, citrussy, hoppy taste...more malty near the end. Metallic mouthfeel and a huge lingering finish. A saison with a bite, nice!

Bottle, with Fin, Loz & Traci, the Belgian Tasting, Part II. Glowing slightly hazy gold. Really interesting translucent white head. Flowery clean grassy lemon aroma, delicate and bright. Lovely mineral dry flavor, just a little lemon sourness. Quinine lingering finish. Utterly refreshing and so unique! Thanks Fin for sharing this!

Fin (10382) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2007
Bottle picked up at Hop Duvel, Gent had this 29-12-07 A wonderful wheaty and soft lemon scented aroma. Poured pale lemon with slight haze and a nice white head. This tasted incredibly fresh, a wonderfula balance with just the right amount of sweetness and tartness. The taste was almost lemon cheescake with a big dollop of creme fraiche on the side. I absolutely loved this, probably my favourite beer over the Christmas period, simply stunning.

thewolf (12482) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2007
Bottle, bought @ Willems, Grobbendonk. Pours a light hazy pale golden with lots of bubbles reaching towards a big, bubbly white head that fizzes away. Aroma is lightly sour with lemons, oranges, clementines, but also ginger, nutmeg, hops, grass and light funkiness. Spritzy and lively mouthfeel with a dry edge to it. Flavours are typically crisp, drying out my mouth a great deal. Flavour is a little thin on the ground perhaps, undermined by this powerful dryness. The ginger appears along with some herbs and light hops. This is good, but the dryness stops some of the flavours short a bit too soon.
