Bière Blanche d'Epeautre

Bière des Pagodes - 5% alc/vol

Comments - First brewed 1998. Made with spelt.
Tasting Notes - Wonderful light, fragrant, refreshing, gently lemony beer with a good non-malty grainy taste. Seems well balanced and has a good texture - soft and smooth yet with a definite fizz.

Brassin Jean Valjean - 7% alc/vol

La Fiesse a Colon - 5% alc/vol

Foire Verte de L'Eau D'Heure Speciale - 6% alc/vol

Tasting Notes - Wheaty and citric with a wonderful texture but sadly lacking in the taste department.

Ghislenghiennoise - 5.4% alc/vol

Tasting Notes - Brewed for local festivals.

Joseph Bière a l'Epeautre - 6% alc/vol

Comments - Uses spelt.
Tasting Notes - Interesting beer. A good, refreshing summer beer with a distant but elusive complexity.

Noël de Silenrieux - 7.5% alc/vol

Tasting Notes - Super Noël renamed ?

Pave de l'Ours - 8.5% alc/vol

Comments - Contract beer for Philippe Plouvier from Biercée.
Tasting Notes - Well balanced at first, becoming cloying and sweet later. The honey is well set off by the hops which control the palate.

Sara Bière au Sarrasere - 6% alc/vol

Comments - Uses buckwheat.
Tasting Notes - A good, rich beer with plenty of interest in the nose and palate let down by its bland finish. Wonderful beer to have on draught.

Sara Biologique

Super Noël - 7.5% alc/vol

Comments - First brewed 1994.
Tasting Notes - A good Christmas beer. Very malt based but with enough complex elements to take it beyond just being a malty beer.
