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.

750ml 2.004 on cork. Pours a huge off-white head over lite, cloudy, straw colored ale. No lacing. Sweet nose with dank overtones of yeast, staw, and frsh cut grass. There is very fine sediment. The taste is great! Very dry and somewhat acidic, with hints of lemon and chamomile tea. The mouthfeel is a little over the top in carbonation. The yeast is starting to form a small yellow pile in the bottom of the tulip. All and all this was a very enjaoyable, refreshing, and relativly cheap beer experience.

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.

Murky golden. A: pine, lime, lemon, hay, yeast, nice. T: lovely balanced saison, perfect mix between bitterness, malty sweetness and yeast. Enjoyed it.

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 (1945) - 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 !!

On Draught
Pours a nice lightly hazy blonde color with a big head and lots of lacing on the glass.

The aroma is very baguette like with a nice bit of herbal hoppiness. There is a nice wet limestone thing happening and the slightest hint of funk.

The flavor is very dry & lightly fruity with a touch of lemony tartness. It's got a nice bitterness and a bit of spice component. Bright at first but it's got a nice minerallity throughout.

just a wonderful Saison.

Cunningham (8525) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2017
A really lovely and refreshing beer! Fit for everything.
Hazy golden color with a fine white head. Nice head that leaves a fine lacing. Pleasant aroma. Medium body and a fine carbonation level. Good balanced mellow acidity. Semi dry ending. Citric, yeast and some spices in the flavor. Nice!
