The Great Kazoo

Beer #319 Saison Cazeau / Brasserie De Cazeau, Templeuve, Belgium

Busy week, as there is much to get done between now and Friday afternoon, when we again depart for State College.  Need to hit a board meeting tonight, so I'll just get down to business.

The beer for today is Saison Cazeau, a farmhouse ale from Brasserie De Cazeau in Belgium.  As you can see from the pic, this bottle has more of a springtime feel than an autumn feel.  However, good beer is always in season!  When you pour this one, you see a hazy gold with a dissipating white head.  The aroma has yeast and biscuit along with floral notes, and the taste has nice peppery, earthy flavors, with hints of lemon.  If you like saisons, this is an excellent choice.  Find it, drink it.
Bottle says spring, beer says all year
This brasserie stretches back to 1753, although there was a hiatus from brewing from 1969 to 2004.  Tons of history of the brewery available on their site, if you're into that sort of thing.  They also have a cool logo, so there you go.

Thing to Think About Today:
If we're drinking a Cazeau, I'm going ahead and assuming it's pronounced "kazoo."  Kazoo, indeed.  Therefore, let's let this awkward kid rock out on something or another called the "Kazookeylele" and see where it takes us.  Apparently, it's taking us to the Final Countdown.  Until next time, dear friends.
