COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In Belgium, one of the world’s greatest brewing regions, the tradition of blending fruit with beer has achieved cult status. We decided to create an American interpretation that we present as Oxford Raspberry. The beer is light and refreshing and finished with real raspberries giving it a fruity aroma, and quenching tartness.

Rating from memory on this one and forgot to backlog it. Tried this out back in the day when I first tried drinking beer. Pours like any old amber wheat brew with a dense white head. Aroma of some raspberries, sweet sugar, a bit of funky wheat. Flavor follows with some light tart raspberry in between wheat backing that finishes a little dirty. Light on the palate, adequate carbonation, some lingering raspberry sweet. This was OK.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy golden amber with a scant linen white head that disappeared almost instantly and left no lace. No aroma to speak of at all. The flavor is watery raspberry, malt, and just a bit of lemon. Very mild bitterness at the finish. Thin, watery body. Very dull.

Beerbuddha (100) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - JUL 7, 2010
This beer poured a hazy, orange color with a medium white head which disappates quickly. Minimal lacing present. The aroma was bready with a hint of raspberry. The taste was weak. The raspberry flavors were bad. It tasted cheap and not well brewed. Like a raspberry preserve. The mouthfeel was medium body with medium high carbonation. Overall I wasn’t impressed with this beer.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - JAN 20, 2010
Cask at Rattle n Hum: Pours a headless hazy blush color. Has a simple crisp wheaty aroma with a soft acidity and a fairly natural raspberry presence. Slick body. Slightly papery wheat flavor with a mildly tart and natural raspberry presence. No major off flavors, just one dimensional and thin bodied.

MeadMe (1303) - Riverview, Florida, USA - DEC 10, 2009
A: A lovely reddish pink color with a very small head. Has some bubbles and very minimal lacing. If I was a chick I would call this one pretty. S: Not much really. There is a hint of raspberry and a hint of funk, which makes me believe it may be tart....hmmm we will see. T: This one needs soo much more to make the cut. I truly believe they had good intentions with this beer but the problem is they did not produce. There is a tiny bit of raspberry and funky goodness, but I wanted them to bring the raspberry and the funk. M: Light and Effervescent.... Nothing more though.

Slipstream (2007) - USA - NOV 30, 2009
Slight rosy tint to the amber pour, topped with a creamy head. Pretty dull label. Nice floral, raspberry aroma, with a bit of standard beery scent too. A light wheat flavor dominates, with a touch of sour citrus, but the raspberry flavor is lacking. Not bad, but there are richer fruit weisse brews out there. Another Clipper City release.

This one was pretty weak all around. Too light and easy to drink. Might be good outside on a hot day.

Pours a brownish pink color with almost no head. Aroma of sour cherries and light wheat. Highly carbonated, tastes like a wine cooler. Glad I got this bottle for free!
