South Street's Frambozen, served on cask in a traditional American pint glass. The base beer for this one is South Street's dubbel, infused with a raspberry puree. Interesting ...

Appearance: Comes a hazy - obviously from the puree - slightly brown, slightly purple body, capped with a nice, healthy one-finger of cask-esque head. Good stick, good sheen - good all around.

Aroma: Strong raspberries in this one, authentic and sweet, though with a definite remnant of the sweet, slightly bready and wholesome dubbel.

Taste: Raspberries galore, similar to the nose, but definite dubbel remnants remain - bananas, brown sugar, spice, doughy bread. These go a long way to cutting through what would be an overwhelming amount of raspberry.

Mouthfeel: This beer's worst attribute. Casking doesn't do it justice - it just tastes very, very flat, almost lifeless.

Drinkability: If SS was going to infuse any of its beers w/ raspberry puree, the dubbel was probably the best candidate, and this one comes out decently well. That being said, I don't know if it's ever a good idea to infuse one of your beers w/ raspberry puree, hence the middling score. Also, I don't know if the cask serving style was the best one to bring this beer's best attributes out. Nonetheless, it was an interesting, probably once-off departure from the typically more traditional SS offerings.
